Susan Bernsen Ostrov grew up in Highland Park, Illinois dreaming of the day she could own her own home and a have store in “uptown” Highland Park selling her favorite things. In 1996 Susan moved back to Highland ParkĀ  to raise two sons, happily sending them to her alma mater, Highland Park High School. Yet as a freelance fashion consultant she continued to pine for a shop to call her own.

It took a few turns in the road, including a career in professional fundraising most recently for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, to make the rest of Susan’s dreams come true. Finally in 2015 Susan purchased Over the Top Boutique from the original owners. Susie is making her dream a reality as she has set-out to make Over the Top the place to go for beautiful clothing and unique accessories. Today you can find Susie buying clothes and accessories from all over the world and happily helping Chicagoland women find their most perfect wardrobe so they can look beautiful and feel wonderful – for isn’t that every woman’s dream!

Over the Top Boutique; beautiful clothing for beautiful women.
