Though caterpillars can simply build themselves cocoons, humans seeking eco-friendly, designer apparel are usually forced to sew autumn leaves into winter jackets or balance a goose atop their heads. Leave a goose in her nest with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel at Pin Me Apparel, located on North Mississippi. This Groupon is not valid toward jewelry.
Pin Me Apparel is a boutique clothier with a hand-selected stock of eco-conscious and innovative apparel, shoes, and accessories. Many of the designs are close to their local Northwestern and Canadian creators, so they arrive without the jet lag of other hard-traveled garments, such as locally made Obi belts. To support leg stems in airy comfort, don the hypoallergenic reincarnation of jellies, Melissa campana corallo ($35) or Melissa-acqua ($49), which use 22nd-century technology to form to the feet that wear them. Orla Keily butterfly-stem-print big-zip wallets ($99) stylishly stow money and important business cards, while Prairie Underground swizzle-stick dresses ($99) stir up cocktail soirées.
Fashion lines including Spiewak and Hype take up tenancy on clear acrylic tables and in floating cubbies around the store. The globe lights and the glass windows in the shop's garage door complete the industrial-chic vibe. Pin Me Apparel's kind and generous staff exuberantly guides shoppers to wardrobe and accessories that bring out their eyes or their charming ability to tell well-timed jokes.
