At first glance, this bright, airy shop looks like a standard Brooklyn boutique catering to the stylish, stay-at-brownstone mom. But past the pastel cardigans, Vanessa Bruno totes, and Robert Clergerie boots in the window, there's fashion for fancy moms who don't stay at home at all: A bevy of chic cocktail dresses and sexy evening pieces from designers like Catherine Malandrino and Diane von Furstenberg line the walls. A Madison Avenue-style scrutiny at the door determines the type of service you'll receive, so leave the Sunday sweats at home (unless they're Juicy, or you'd prefer to shop ignored). Patrons who pass muster enjoy personalized service that rivals Bergdorf's: A tour through the latest arrivals, a pair of Pedro Garcías to try-on with each outfit, and even a bowl of water and treats for canine companions. Shoppers can also seek contentment sifting through the large selection of sale items (usually 50%-75% off) displayed in the back of the store.
