UPDATE: Andina Buenos Aires is closing at the end of May 2009.
1740 W. Division, (773)227-6225, shopandina.com
Goods: Women’s purses, belts, shoes, scarves and jewelry, men’s bags and accessories, all imported from Argentina. Owner: Argentina native Gonzolo Barenas’ boutique was inspired by the street fairs and bazaars in Buenos Aires. Vibe: Posters of Argentina dot the walls, while Argentinean music plays overhead. Plants decorate the displays, and the goods provide punches of color in an otherwise black and wood room. Price Range: Moderate. The Look: From the office to Lumen, spice up any outfit with buttery leather or rich suede bags and belts, then shine it up with some sterling silver jewelry. Shopper’s Perks: Shopping at Andina will give you a distinctly unique look—you can’t find these accessories at H&M.
