Fashion is about expression, so the last words that should come to mind when you assess your wardrobe are “generic” and “bland.” To ensure that your closet never becomes boring, commit to spicing things up in the style department with an afternoon shopping with your girlfriends at Squasht by Les. The creative brainchild of Chicago designer Lesley Timpe, this hip boutique in the Ukrainian Village is known for its locally-produced, handcrafted garments, from organic color-blocked dresses perfect for a night out dancing to reversible hats designed to keep your head toasty through the winter. Look out for Squasht pop-ups at street fairs and festivals—where you’ve got a good chance of finding a one-of-a-kind piece for a steal—but if you’re going for the full boutique experience, plan on arriving at the West Chicago Avenue flagship early, as it closes its doors at 5pm on weekends. On the bright side, that just leaves more time for you and your favorite girls to hit the town in the fabulous outfits you just picked up.
