Fivestory the brainchild of Claire Distenfeld and her father is the realization of my most decadent, fashionable dreams in an Upper East Side townhouse. The boutique is very much high-end and showcases many lesser-known designers. The clothing and accessories are displayed as artistic masterpieces, just as they should be.
Intermix has taken the media by storm recently after being purchased by Gap. The boutique is fun and young and hosts a great number of designers from Joie to Herve Leger to Giuseppe Zanotti. I can't go in without finding something new that I absolutely love.
Opening Ceremony is famous for its quirky, yet very beautiful products. It's the edgier sister to Fivestory, featuring lesser-known designers while upholding a high-end status. The prices are often daunting, but the clothes and accessories are always stunning and fun.
Scoop NYC has been one of my favorites for years. Its products are very similar to those of Intermix. The volume of clothing at times can be overwhelming. But, overwhelming is never a bad thing when it comes to clothes.
