We live in a city that seems to love pop-up shops., but there's one that arguably reigns superior over all the others. We're talking, of course, about Clever Alice, a frequent Windy City visitor who will be back in town in just a few days.
The shop lands back in the Gold Coast neighborhood on August 28 and runs through September 1, but we suggest going early. The "sample and surplus sale" will offer up pieces from over 40 designers, all discounted at up to 75% off.
Here's a little taste of the designers whose items will appear at the pop-up: Anna Hovet, C/Fan, J Park, SNOA, Kreatia, Knitted Dove, 81 Poppies, Wendy Katlen, Friends with Benefits, MC Planet, Inizio, Ava Knits, Muubaa, Nombre, 88 Orange, Olena Dats' , Faubourg de Temple,, and Mickey and Jenny, to name a few. We're especially excited to see hometown heroes like Anna Hovet and C/Fan on the list.
