The varied stock at Urban Laundry, named one of Milwaukee’s Best Women’s Boutiques by CityVoter, bedecks women in contemporary duds from renowned designers. The boutique sets up shop in a restored 19th-century building with exposed Cream City brick and wood-beamed ceilings, from which vintage chandeliers and artwork beam down on a collection of Lola and Sophie blouses and dresses, Free People graphic tops, and denim from 7 For All Mankind. A variety of jewelry and belts accents ensembles, and a selection of vegan handbags basks in cruelty-free materials, daydreaming of bottle feeding baby giraffes.
A charming boutique with a high-fashion eye, Uncommon Items decks its clientele in an eclectic array of handcrafted jewelry, accessories, and distinctive apparel from California designers. Fashion-free fingers can slip into a number of stone-studded vintage rings ($20+), or drape elegant necklaces ($24+) across dreary décolletage and sad-eyed security guards. Twirl-ready dresses ($49+) pair with stylish purses ($35) and scarves ($24) to create an ideal outfit for impressing friends, co-workers, and prissy disco balls. Eye-fetching panoplies of original artwork preside over Uncommon Items' aisles, warming hearts and eyeballs with soul-soothing pastoral landscapes.
