One of the best places in the world to buy clothes is in New York City, and here, we have hundreds of small, medium, and large boutique clothing stores to choose from. A lot of these places prove really good, depending on your style, sex, age, and so on. With that, since I am a young professional woman, here are three boutique-clothing stores that are I think are worth the visit.
Blessed Peacemakers: With a bohemian vibe, a Moroccan-themed décor (all for sale), and clothes and accessories curated by Yumi Kim designer Kim Phan, this shop exudes an exotic feel right in the heart of the Lower East Side. It’s not pretentious or fancy, but that doesn’t mean the goods aren’t on the high-end side. You can pick up frocks by Champagne and Strawberries, shoes by Dolce Vita, and soon, a house-brand label by Yumi Kim.
Legacy: If you are looking for something old, something new, and everything stylish, check out the clothes Rita Brookoff has curated at her shop in SoHo. Here you can find vintage Bill Blass and Hermes dresses, and new creations Brookoff has made using antique fabrics. It’s a unique place to get that outfit that no one at the party could possibly have, and since she makes the pieces to order, you know it will fit like a glove.
Dalaga: When this sleek boutique opened in 2006, sister-owners Mary and Michelle Mangiliman brought stylish, yet utilitarian threads to their Greenpoint neighborhood in Brooklyn. That means it’s easy to find a light cotton frock by Lace Trails, or an airy skirt by Ark & Co. They also sell jewelry, bath products and accessories, so you can truly deck yourself out Brooklyn style, ala Girl’s.
