Though she hails from Chicago, Jacqueline Rezak opened her high-end eclectic boutique Rad & Refined in 2011 in Los Angeles, where she works as a celebrity stylist. But this summer, she brought haute style home when she opened a Chicago location—or an iteration of it. The River North venue differs from its LA counterpart with by-appointment-only shopping trips, and an undisclosed address to protect celebrity clientele. Rezak’s staff offers personal styling sessions, and although still based in LA, Rezak will fly in on special requests for one-on-one appointments.
So where do you start? Online, according to Rezak. The Rad & Refined site shows a large portion of the boutique’s collection—a combination of high-end wardrobe staples and edgy, boundary-pushing pieces; a handful of other items are viewable only in person. The ever-changing inventory covers all the designer bases, from a vintage Vivienne Westwood corset circa 1970 and vibrantly patterned Samantha Sleeper wrap dresses, to a rocker-chic strapless Halston Heritage dress and Wildfox Couture cropped tees. Coming this fall, look for vintage Chanel baubles. E-mail email@example.com to set up an appointment.
