A necklace by Larry Vrba ($650) at LuLu's on the Avenue. Vrba's designs have been worn by Beyoncé in concert and featured in Victoria's Secret fashion shows.

A Laudi Vidni bag ($445) at LuLu's.
Art Deco baubles at LuLu's on the Avenue range from $150 to $800.
The Mag Mile is a big-brand mecca, which is why we love the 900 North Michigan Shops, where Chicago-only gems like space519, 1154 Lill Studio and Crosell & Co. coexist with major names like J.Crew and Michael Kors.
Today, Laurie Davis--Chicago?s queen of vintage bling who dressed ten women for this year?s inaugural festivities in D.C.--adds her goods to the lineup. Presenting: LuLu?s on the Avenue, an accessories-focused outpost of her original boutique.
It?s fun to browse Davis?s retro party dresses (1920s through 1980s) at her North Center shop, but the gowns rarely fit modern bods. (Plus, we?re wary of Davis?s verbal hand-slaps when we reach out to touch.)
The new LuLu's focuses on jewelry that looks gorgeous on everyone. Davis?s baubles from her secret sources are better quality than today?s mass-produced costume pieces, and the selection delves deeply into Art Deco (hot thanks to Downton Abbey and the upcoming Great Gatsby). There are also pieces by designer Larry Vrba--a Beyoncé and Victoria?s Secret favorite--and handbags by Laudi Vidni. (Jewelry starts at $150.)
Just think: There?s no better way to dress up an LBD from LuLu?s neighbor Club Monaco than with a stack of 1950s sparklers.
