Wolfbait & B-girls is not only where Chicago shops, but where Chicago sells. Showcasing the wares of more than 250 local artisans as well as Chicago-based fair-trade companies, Wolfbait highlights our city’s local talent.
Wolfbait & B-girls is a female-owned and operated independent business, fashioned by two native designers, Shirley Kienitz and Jenny Stadler. Their respective collections, Bruiser and Brazen judy, are executed in-house from concept to consumer, creating an intimate environment for a unique shopping experience. Wolfbait just so happens to be a one-stop shop for unique and practical clothing, playful accessories, and one-of-a-kind handcrafted treasures. See something you like?

The name Wolfbait & B-girls is a nod to historic Chicago. The 1950’s guidebook Chicago Confidential defines wolfbait as girls who moved to the city looking for success, and b-girls as what they sometimes turn into. Think B-movie, B-side, bad girl, Bruiser and Brazen judy. Wolfbait is not only for the shopper, but also for the artisan.
