Wicker Park seems to be anchored by the busy North/Milwaukee/Damen Six Corners intersection, but if you head just one block south, you'll find a new women's boutique that's worth checking out — like now.
The brainchild of lifelong Chicago resident Susie Lee, Moon Voyage opened up just in time for your spring wardrobe shopping needs. But, actually, this boutique carries so much more than just a great seasonal frock. We're talking accessories, home goods, apothecary finds, and even lingerie for those, um, warm-weather nights. Lee's goal was to create a one-stop shop in the heart of Chicago that blended the edginess of New York with the carefree attitude of L.A.
Our take? Mission accomplished, thanks to a fabulous selection of over-40 brands, including American Retro (a super-cool French label), Lazy Oaf from the U.K., and stateside faves like Courtshop and Otis & Maclain. While the online operation is not quite up and running, the brick-and-mortar retail respite is yours for the taking.
Moon Voyage, 2010 West Pierce Avenue (at Damen); 773-423-8853.
