Nestled on the eastern edge of Highland Park's bustling Central Avenue among other trendy boutiques is Ooh-La-La, a small shop that's big on style and service. Located in the historic Highland Park Movie Theatre Building, in a space previously dedicated to a millinery shop during the 30's and 40's, proprietor and designer Lisa Farrell interprets the art of millinery with a modern eye. This tres chic boutique feels like a Parisian millinery salon complete with draped velvet curtains, an elegant chaise lounge and an ornate vintage mirror. By far the most dramatic element of the salon is the wall lined with old hat blocks – a true mark of craftsmanship seldom seen in department stores. Beautifully handcrafted women's hats are displayed in small vignettes throughout the intimate salon. These one-of-a-kind couture creations are wonderfully detailed with frothy feathers, sumptuous fabrics, vintage beading or another well-crafted trim.
