Charming clothing boutiques are a dime a dozen in Chicago. Many come and go, some are too expensive, and some are too cheap. (Sensing a Goldie Locks syndrome here). But Vintage Charm is that rare, perfect little gem.
AKA my favorite new store.
Some of you suburbanites might recognize Vintage Charm from their La Grange location. I’ve found myself staring wistfully in that very store window each time we drive home to visit Neal’s parents. So naturally, I was thrilled to find out they had opened a Bucktown location!
Now, the name “Vintage Charm” can be somewhat misleading. The clothing they carry isn’t actually vintage at all— but some of my favorite brands: JOA, Kendra Scott, Free People, Sanctuary, the list goes on! Essentially a mini Anthropologie with lower price points (Twist my arm, please.)
The second I walked in, I knew there was something special about this store. But what really sealed the deal for me? Their crewneck sweatshirts with French Bulldogs on them! (Not pictured here…but more on that later!)
To officially welcome them to the neighborhood (and to let you get a jump start on your holiday shopping) they’re having a winter welcome soiree on Thursday, November 20th from 7-9pm! If you’re looking to knock out some gifts for the ladies on your list, this is a great place to start. Not just for clothing either, they’ve got tons of adorable jewelry, fun accessories, candles that smell like they were sent from heaven, adorable decor, and the perfect stocking stuffers — all just as charming as their selection of apparel. Plus, they’re offering 20% off the entire store, sips, and apps, too!
Here’s just a taste of my very favorites, pictured below:
- Leopard lace up Toms and the coziest plaid sweater you’ve ever seen
- Grey booties with a perfect plaid scarf (yes, the same one you’ve seen everywhere this season!)
- A vintage tin filled to the brim with sparkly bracelets
- Black gemstone clutch (you might recognize her from Instagram) and leather gloves
