Introducing Silver Moon- our stockist in Chicago
Posted on November 21 2019
Earlier in the week we answered a few of the commonly asked questions we receive from brides to be over in the US, such as how to convert European shoe sizes to US shoe sizes, and which shoes are best for wider feet- click here if you missed it. Another question we hear a lot is where can you get Rachel Simpson shoes in the US? Well one of those stockists is the fabulous Silver Moon in Chicago and today the spotlight is on them, as we find out a little bit more.
So who are Silver Moon?
Celebrating over fifteen years of style, owner and designer Liz Meyer has brought her experienced eye for fashion and design to Silver Moon. Liz has spent almost twenty years dressing & designing for rock n roll's elite and is constantly inspired by her travels, picking up unique, one off vintage pieces from across the globe. Together with husband Andreas, the couple now dress brides, entertainers & fashionistas from their beautiful Wicker Park boutique in Chicago, and have modernized the luxurious design and details of eras past in faux fur, beaded and woven, wraps and separates.
What do they do?
There are two main parts to the Silver Moon boutique. The first sees them as Chicago’s premiere vintage stockist, with the cities largest collection of original vintage pieces which has been carefully curated, and includes some truly unique bridal gowns. We particularly love their ‘Heirloom Reimagined’ service, where they can rework an old dress of yours to work perfectly for you, whether that’s simply fitting it to perfection or completely redesigning it to suit your individual style.
The boutique also houses the signature One & Only Collection, designed by Liz. This stunning range of handmade gowns combines vintage textiles and trimmings with modern silhouettes. Each one can be individually customized to create your dream bespoke dress, whether you want glamorous, romantic, classic- or a mixture of all three! You can even create a headpiece to complete your look.
Tell us about Circa?
Circa was created for brides in search of classic key pieces to beautifully accompany their gown, while offering enough versatility to be worn for years to come. It was developed by Liz and Andreas to celebrate their 15th anniversary in the bridal industry, and includes stunning beaded cover ups, faux fur wraps, lace toppers and a to-die-for ivory vintage wedding cape. In their debut collection, this formidable couple have truly redefined vintage for the present day, giving brides stylish options for the most important day of their lives.
How long have Silver Moon worked with Rachel Simpson?
We’ve been working together for several years now- when we first heard from this super stylish, vintage inspired duo we knew it was a brand match made in heaven! Their collection works so beautifully with our shoes- almost like they were made for each other and we love seeing photos of their brides’ incredible wedding style.
Do they stock the whole collection of shoes?
Whilst Silver Moon don’t hold the whole collection in stock at the shop, you can order from the full range on their website. They offer free US shipping too which is amazing! Their customer service is second to none too, so if you’re unsure on sizing or need help deciding on your perfect style just give them a shout!
