Fashion House Chicago: There's no place like home

Nestled in a cozy loft in the West Loop is a fashion treasure! Fashion House Chicago is deemed as "Chicago's Premiere Consignment Boutique" and after my long-overdue inaugural visit, I must agree.  As a vintage shopping novice, nothing excites me more than encountering a well-edited vintage collection. There's no need to search for a diamond in the rough here. Everything is covetable!

Owner, Melissa Taylor, has a keen eye for amazing pieces.  Simply put...this woman knows her stuff! Fashion House carries clothing from many high-end designers such as Valentino, Armani, Ralph Lauren and Burberry (remember this baby?).  And every item is in impeccable condition.  Shoes and handbags are aplenty. Plus, there's a great selection of jewelry, including my personal favorites - brooches!

More exciting than the vintage collection are Melissa's in-house collections which include a clothing line, Emalon, as well as a customizable handbag and accessories line, Groupie Love. My favorites? The sleeveless dress donning a beautifully pleated neckline, the pleated tweed skirt and the striped satchel with brown leather straps and shearling lining (I will be placing an order soon for the Spring version).  Although both lines are in their infancy, Emalon's unique designs coupled with Groupie Love's made-to-order production will surely make Fashion House a fashion force to be reckoned with.

With services that include custom garments, designer consignment, styling and closet cleaning, Fashion House is capable of handling all of your fashion needs.  Plus, the atmosphere is beyond welcoming. Spend a few minutes with Melissa and you'll feel like you're hanging with one of your best girlfriends in the comfort of your own home.  And who wouldn't enjoy that?

Visiting Fashion House (411 S. Sangamon Ave, Chicago) requires an appointment but you can also visit the newly launched online shop and follow them on Twitter to stay abreast of the sales and new items in stock. But like most stores that carry one-of-a-kind items, you better act fast.
And with that being said...Happy Shopping, lovelies!
