Peeped! The Coolest Fitting Rooms In Chicago

We're not saying we're picky (err...), but when we go shopping, we love some nice atmosphere. Head to the big chain stores, and dressing-room drama is pretty inevitable, but at some of Chicago's coolest smaller boutiques, the dressing-room experience can almost be as soothing and/or inspired as the goods. Those harsh warehouse fluorescents and cattle-pen stalls...no effing-way. Something about zipping up a potential must-buy feels sexier when surrounded by mood lighting, sultry curtains, and chic decor. It's highly likely you'll walk away with a shopping bag or two from one of Chicago's best, but we think their closets of cuteness will make your visit equally memorable. Just click through for a sartorial peep-show...and if we've missed one of your faves, don't be shy...that's what the comments are for.
