Tucked away on Bucktown's trendy stretch of Damen Ave. shops, indie boutique Von Z stands out for its well-curated selection of clothing as much as its penchant for champagne-themed wares. Owner Jenna Zielbauer sells a selection of hard-to-find designers, like the dreamy Danish brand numph, as well as her own line, Cotton Candy Couture. We asked Jenna what she's most excited about for spring—besides the new sweets at Von Z's self-serve candy bar, of course. Read on for her spring-trend tips below, and check out our handy Polyvore collage above. —Tori Telfer
