This artifact of the old West Village organizes its funky party clothes by color—fuchsia, canary, royal blue—reserving a sizable rack for swirling, checked, and flashy patterns. Packaged thongs and a case of leopard-print necklaces, owl-shaped pendants, and cocktail rings highlight the accessory selection. Although the store is perhaps less refined than its neighbors (Marc Jacobs and James Perse have settled on the same street), designer wares, such as Elie Tahari T-shirts, do make an occasional appearance. And any customer who gazes longer than a few seconds at an item can expect immediate attention from a salesperson—likely already bearing an armload of clothes to try on. Prices reflect the high-end neighborhood, though there’s a standard sale rack where shoppers can often pick up a miniskirt or zippered dress at 70 percent off.
