I wouldn't complain about the pricing here as much as the dirty, cluttered atmosphere. Is this a "vintage" or "thrift" shop? Is this a store for "hard-to-find" designers? Is this a pet shop (I agree with the reviewer who complained about the smell)? Trying to be all things to all people, it fails to find a niche.

I first read about them on Lucky Online and was disappointed in their favorable review...it's truly not even in the top 100 Chicago stores...the selection is NOT original, and there is PLENTY of attitude from the staff. That being said, I don't know why people complain about the prices here, of all things...that's what clothes COST.

Pros: lots to look at! good location

Cons: overrated selection...a too-cool-for-school "hipster" attitude, for no reason

I don't know why my friends like this store, the selection is simply all over the place, the designers they carry aren't actually hard-to-find at all (and they don't sell 'em here for any less than anywhere else), and it smells like a catbox. It tries to be part-second-hand-store and part-hipster-boutique but looks like my grandmother's junked-up basement!

Pros: the staff is nice

I sometimes shop at Penelopes when Im wanting to treat myself to something nice. Their prices are a bit on the high side but they carry some very cute selection of clothes. They also sell some shoes but they have a limited selection of those. The staff is very friendly and like to chat with customers.

PROS: Lots of cute clothes
CONS: Moderately expensive

Sway from the uptight norm of basic clothing stores and head to Penelope’s for the real cool scene. The stark contrast of colors for shirts, dresses, tops, and bottoms mirror the dcor of bright walls and hip art. They have great prices for good quality pieces. My pick: their jeans- not so much stretch, just really comfortable and fitting yet still give off the not-trying-so hard vibe. Guys will have equal chance at finding a good deal with a fairly decent men’s section with simple styles.

hands down my favorite store in chicago. anytime i need something different or just something cute and totally comfortable, i find it at penelope's. sure, i might need to save my pennies for some items, but with american apparel tees and leroy's girl tops and skirts, there's always the perfect impulse buy. mostly its jena, joe, penelope and olive. other people can carry the same clothing lines but no one else has them!! thanks for having your store.

I'm tired of all the hoighty toighty ladies with their saccharine smiles working at the boutiques in Wicker Park. Penelope's is rejuvenating in its sincerity--from the clothes, to the cute girl who calculates your total on a Legos calculator--it is certainly not a place that is full of itself. If you like clothing with a little hipster flare to it, and impeccably, genuinely nice service, this is the place.

Pros: great service, one-of-kind clothes, topnotch quality

If you're a poor college girl like me, this place will rack up one helluva credit card debt. I got a winter coat by Johnson that I have NOT spotted on anyone else (and I trample through Chicago a lot) and am constantly getting complimented for. Needless to say, the service is excellent. Worth making a stop at.

Built By Wendy clothes too. How can you go wrong?

Editorial from

The Scene
Vivid blue, pop art-adorned walls welcome guys and gals to this vintage storefront. Low on attitude and big on fun clothing, the store's friendly, chatty staff and chain-defying regulars exude a casual-cool vibe. And …
