4635 N. Lincoln, (773)728-0088, thedressingroomchicago.com
Goods: Clothing, accessories and shoes for women. Designers: BB Dakota, Tano, 525 America, Tulle; denim by Red Engine, Christopher Blue, !iT and Joe’s Jeans, dresses and skirts by Skunkfunk. Owners: Barbara Ruiz and Sarah Sanchez opened this North Center boutique with the hopes of making shopping easy and fun again—especially for moms with tots in tow. They also have a shoe store up the block. Vibe: With easy-on-the-ears John Mayer playing in the background, funky wallpaper lining the walls and exposed pipes dangling above, The Dressing Room is something right out of Dwell magazine. Price Range: Moderate. The Look: On-top-of-it young mom who effortlessly taps into timely style (think Kate Hudson). If kids aren’t in your picture, think more daring Southport dweller. Shopper’s Perks: An increasingly diminishing kids’ play area (sorry kiddies, the shoes had to go somewhere) and plenty of goods from local designers including Deana Rose and Jess L.C. Jewelry.
