Lori’s Shoes

When Lori of Lori’s Shoes says she wants to dress you, you do what she says…

If you’re not familiar with Lori’s Shoes it’s a shopping staple on Armitage street in Lincoln Park along with two outposts in Chicago’s North Shore. For over 34 years Lori’s has been the sole of Chicago outfitting women in shoes, handbags, accessories & apparel. The carefully curated selection has something for everyone. Lori decided she wanted me to step outside of my comfort zone and try two totally different looks…

First, up is this gorgeous oversized off-the-shoulder dress. I was immediately drawn to the olive hue but the silhouette isn’t something I would naturally gravitate towards. I am so glad Lori encouraged me to try it on!  I also love the extra touch of glam with the embellished sandals.

Next, I have always admired those who can look effortlessly cool rocking embroidered denim, but never thought I could pull it off. When pairing the denim with an OTS top (which I would normally wear) I felt like the look was more me.
Going into Lori’s, seeing the array of merchandise and connecting with people who encourage you to try on items outside of your norm was a good reminder to me that items often look different online vs. in real life.

I love any excuse to visit charming Armitage street. It’s one of my absolute favorite streets in Chicago. In fact, it’s one of the only streets in the city with great boutiques. My other favorites to shop at are Art Effect & All She Wrote. And don’t forget to treat yo’ self to an ice cream cone from Annette’s after all of that shopping.
