Swaby Got Back

swaby boutique!

All this health care talk is making us sick.

Even the Canucks are getting sniffy about it.

Cure what ails you with a visit to Swaby, a just-opened Bucktown boutique. Owner/designer Shernett Swaby is a real-life wonder woman. Not only did she move from Toronto to Chicago and open a shop in three short months, she sews every piece by hand in her backroom studio.

Currently available are top sellers from past collections: blouses, skirts, pants, blazers, cocktail dresses, and gowns. Her fall line, all grays and purples, includes silk-blend, pleated pieces meant for layering. Wet your whistle with a single rack; come back in a few weeks for the complete collection.

Swaby also sells stellar leather bags with snaps, fringe, and studs.

That’s nothing to sneeze at.

Swaby, 1933 North Damen Avenue, at Homer Street (773-276-7645 or shernettswaby.com).
