Goods: Women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. Designers: Studio 90, Neesh, Cynthia Ashby; shoes by Remix and handbags by Hobo, Latico and Leaders in Leather. Owners: When her co-founder of the 18-year-old Studio 90 boutique retired, Angela Turley revamped by taking on a new name, a new vibe and a new business partner—her daughter, Kate. Vibe: The family connection provides a certain warmth, and the shopping experience is welcoming for women of all ages. Price Range: Inexpensive-Moderate. The Look: Vintage-inspired jackets, blouses, sweaters and pants. Clothes that have a timeless, classic feel but stand out for being original and a level above the pack. Shopper’s Perks: It’s easy to support local design at Turley Road—many of the designers they stock are based in Chicago. Email newsletters often provide fashion and political commentary and also offer discounts.
