We love finding a new clothing line we can't live without, and we recently discovered one that's making us earn its stripes, for real. Short of buying a plane ticket or getting really handy with a tape measure and an online shop, you can only find Whit clothing locally in one place: Trillium. Head to Wicker Park to shop all the fun, flirty, when-is-summer-showing-up styles at Trillium, one of our favorite independent boutiques. The coolest thing about this line, aside from how we'll pretty much never take it off all summer, is that all pieces are made in the USA (NYC actually). Trillium has several of the offerings in now, with more arriving in the coming weeks. Because you know, we needed another reason to pray for sunshine. Trillium, 1744 West Division Street (at Hermitage Street); 773-698-8162.
