Sure, you can book a table at Sunda or Underground in hopes of catching a glimpse of the rich and famous, but why go to the trouble when you can shop alongside them? Everyone from Nicole Richie to Carey Mulligan has signed the dressing-room wall of this haute shop on Oak Street and famous faces such as Winona Ryder have been known to wander in off the street at a moment’s notice. Leighton Meester chose a head-to-toe ensemble from Sofia for her Chicago performance at Underground this January and the guys like it, too: rockers Cisco Adler and Joe Perry have also worked with Sofia.
