And now the latest from Racked Chicago, covering everything you need to know about the city's shopping, style, and retail from the sidewalks up.

LINCOLN PARK—This week just east of Clark, Diversey and Broadway, State Farm Insurance unveiled their new concept named Next Door to select business owners. They open to the public next week but here's a few photos to tie you over.

GOLD COAST—August 19th is fast approaching for the opening of Perchance Boutique at the Elysian Hotel. This week we received some intel on the construction and lines they'll be carrying.

WICKER PARK—Racked's own Girl on the Go, Shelby Steiner, sits down with Chicago-based designer Michelle Dimitris of Dollparts in her Wicker Park studio and picks her brain about thrifting, Fashion Focus 2011, and sustainability.

ATLANTA—Somewhere in a quiet Atlanta zoo an unnamed baby giraffe is rocking back and forth being oogled at by zoo-goers. Groupon and Zoo Atlanta figured they'd give guests of the zoo or really anyone who wants to buy a Groupon the chance to name the baby giraffe.
