A trip to "The Ladies of Cuneo: The Martha Weathered Fashion Collection" isn't just a visit to Loyola University Chicago's Cuneo Mansion and Gardens in Vernon Hills; it's a trip back to the fashionable decades before our time. Martha Weathered's boutique was a Michigan Avenue staple from 1922 until 1971 and is credited for bringing the European couture to wealthy Chicagoans. In modern days and a few miles away from Michigan Avenue, you'll be able to check out the vintage styles at the exhibit.

The selection mainly focuses on items from the 1950s and 1960s. It's $10 for adults and $9 for students, and runs until October 27.—Moira Lawler
