Located in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood is Mary Liz Lehman’s dreamt-up creation and fashionista haven. Perchance Boutique has created a name for itself in the Chicagoland area as an upscale, trendy retailer that offers the best customer service, personal styling, and ultimately matchless shopping experience. The setup of Perchance is themed to look like a modern living room space with a brown, green and white color scheme, armchairs scattered through the store, and unique chandeliers, all helping to keep a light and bright atmosphere. Perchance sells everything from apparel, outerwear, handbags and accessories. With great quality merchandise, just a few of the designers featured are: Alice + Olivia, Generra, Loeffler Randall, and Tucker.

It is perfectly tailored for a true ladylike look with the coolness of a supple leather tie-belt and oversized knit collar also echoed at the sleeve. Loeffler Randall Riley Zip Over-the-knee boots. Loeffler Randall upped the ante with the Riley zip back boot for fall/winter 2010! Classic almond toe shape, 1 1/4" leather covered wedge heel, and back zip closure.
