1154 Lill Studio At 13 years old, 1154 Lill Studio is one of the “design your own” stores that has stood the test of time. The handbag company started in Chicago and has grown to include a boutique in Boston, an online store and design-your-own-purse parties, which it hosts in homes across the country. The latest addition to the Lill empire is a new location at the 900 Shops that features a 65-inch touch screen that customers can use to create one-of-a-kind handbags, totes, wallets and more. Not feeling creative? The company offers ready-made bags and accessories—but what’s the fun in that? 904 W Armitage Ave (773-472-7036); 900 N Michigan Ave, level 5 (312-344-1825).—Kevin Aeh
