Comfort Me Boutique In The City!

I'm so in love with this gem of a boutique!  Comfort me Boutique is set just East of Halsted on Armitage in Lincoln Park's shopping district, yet when you walk in the doors you will be transported!  Where you'll be transported to has endless possibilities, because the beautiful decorations in this cozy boutique have a special air about them that leave you questioning where exactly you are!  From the woods with a beautiful full tree and dripping steam, to a comfortable fire place in a cottage, or maybe relaxing on a beach in a hammock?  You'll find new and spectacular decor you hadn't noticed every time you visit, but the best part of Comfort Me Boutique is the unique assortment of clothing and home goods!  

CMB opened just under three years ago and has been doing so well that they recently opened a pop up shop in Hyde Park!  They opened as a team of a mother and two daughters, and the family atmosphere transferees over to the vibe of not only the name, but also the boutique!  "Comfort Me Boutique's vibe is relaxing, homey, and eclectic."  As you shop through the store you'll notice a fresh and modern take on vintage inspired pieces!  You can't help but feel cool in an understated way when searching through the racks of clothing as well as the perfectly unique little nick-knacks and gifts!  Being engaged, one of my first thoughts was, how can I register here?  :)

The abundance of really talented and funky local designers is also one of my favorite things about this place!  There really is a locally designed item (or five) for everyone on your list!

When I asked Alyssa, one of the owners, to tell me a little about Christina Karin, she had this to say, "her apparel is made in Chicago which is amazing.  Also, her collections are beautiful and she has a nice range of price points in order to make her designs more accessible to everyone. We have a Christina Karin faux fur wrap in stock that I had to snatch for myself right away. They make it possible to be practical in this crazy weather without looking like the Michelin man."  LOVE!

Courtney Rhodes' line of scarfs called Rho is such a cool, unique, and most importantly useful take on a scarf!  Not only are they all hand painted silk in drop dead gorgeous colors and patterns made in Chicago, but she has added a metal clip to the scarf called a Rho clip which helps you to wear it tons of different ways!  As a stylist I can't tell you how often people ask me "what are some different ways I can wear my scarf?"  The Rho scarf is a super chic take on an every day scarf that will get you endless compliments, guaranteed! 

Pyar & Co. is the line that had me wanting to register at Comfort Me Boutique!  They are actually designed IN Lincoln Park and the intricate beeding and painting make you want to cuddle up on a beautiful couch somewhere while feeling fancy at the same time!  It doesn't get much better than that, especially in this weather!  :)
