Second only to Bloomingdales, Handle with Care features one of the city’s best selections of upscale designers like Shoshanna, Joie, Missoni, and Amanda Uprichard. But don’t let the designer duds intimidate you—the salespeople in this two-room boutique are consistantly helpful, laid-back and friendly. For a great gift or finishing touch, the fancy yet functional selection of jewelry and handbags rounds things out.

Since its been under new ownership you can really see the selection is a bit more curated. I love the designer assortment and the mix of trend with classics.  I shop everywhere, but tend to buy sale to stretch my dollar. They always have a few great things left and I can rack up a bit! I love this Old Town gem


Chicago doesn't have a huge assortment of high end women's boutiques, but of all the shops in the category, Handel with Care is my favorite. Unfortunately as a recent college grad I rarely have the extra funds to shop at this well curated boutique but when I do have a little extra cash laying around my first stop is here. They've got a great mix of staple pieces that will never go out of style along with some more trendier items that are just to cute to pass on.
