Goods: Clothing, shoes and accessories for women. Designers: Raven, Frankie B, Ya-Ya, Grey Ant, Jill Stuart, Mint, KushCush, Thayer; shoes by Ruthie Davis. Owner: Fashionistas Nicolette Karney and Lindsay Madigan opened She after noticing it was harder to find boutiques that were fashion forward and offered a blend of comfort and style. Vibe: The cool, sleek, mostly metallic room is warmed up by background beats, TVs showing music videos and the cheerful, quick-to-help employees. Price Range: Moderate-Expensive. The Look: She is an acronym for “she has everything,” and the shop lives up to its motto. Whether you’re suiting up for a first date at the movies or a black-tie benefit, She can outfit you in perfectly crafted clothing that is on the cutting edge of style. And the fashion-loving staff is happy to help create the perfect ensemble. Shopper’s Perks: They offer in-store tailoring, and will track down and order any wardrobe piece if they don’t carry it. The Thing for Spring: She brings sleek style to the ‘burbs with the opening of a new Hinsdale location.
