Shoppin' and Stylin' at Mr. and Mrs. Digz - Chitown Fashionista

Shoppin’ and Stylin’ at Mr. and Mrs. Digz

A few weeks ago, I was invited to Mr. and Mrs. Digz to check out the store and style looks from their wide variety of merchandise.

With a 4-part store concept (designer vintage, consignment, new and handmade)*, I had a feeling that I would be overwhelmed with choices from which to style our lovely model, Rochelle. And I was indeed correct!

Since this was my first time visiting Mr. and Mrs. Digz, I took a few moments to browse the store and get myself acquainted with the well-edited collection of clothing, jewelry and accessories. I was particularly impressed with the range of sizes that were offered AND the presence of a men’s section. It truly is a one-stop shop.

Here are just a few things I discovered during my walkthrough:

Then is was time for me and owner Emilia Dlugolecka to partake in a bit of styling fun! We pulled together a few looks to showcase the diversity of merchandise she carries.

2-piece set – Calvin Klein | shoes and handbag – Talbots | jewelry – WISH

faux leather pant – Express (v) | earrings – Monet | gold shirt, velvet clutch, ring – vintage
top – Boudoir | skirt – Salvatore Ferragamo (v) | snakeskin handbag and shoes – vintage | earrings – Trifari (v)
top – Boudoir | jeans – Level 99 | blazer – Apostrophe | beret – handmade by Emilia’s mom

See how easy it is to mix vintage with new? Make sure you keep that in mind when you visit the store. Don’t just go there to shop one of the sections. If you spend an equal amount of time in every corner of the store, you’ll also be inspired to mix and match items to create your own vintage/new looks.

Emilia revealed that it took a corporate layoff for her to open Mr. and Mrs. Digz. This drastic life event resulted in her desire to own a boutique that would allow consumers the opportunity to feed their designer addiction at a fraction of the retail price. A real life example of turning lemons into lemonade. And after my experience, I will most certainly be back for another glass!

To shop the goods, visit in person (5668 North Clark St) or on Etsy.

Now, tell me. Which look do you like the most?
