New Finds At Ikram–Nothing Over $500

Ikram is world-renowned for carrying the best of the best in luxury brands, and we're lucky enough that this luxe boutique is nestled right in Chicago. What is less well known is that among the straight-off-the-runway Rodarte gowns and covetable Loree Rodkin jewelry, there's something for everyone at a range of price points. We've got our eye on a few fabulous new pieces at Ikram that all retail for under $500. Don't be intimidated by the gorgeous red paneled exterior. Trust us, the sales associates are warm, welcoming, and pros at making visitors feel at ease. And if you're thinking your budget won't allow for a little Ikram shopping spree, the photos that await might surprise you.
