Spice up your everyday basics by bringing them to Ashley Turen, who opened her debut boutique pn the Lower East Side. She'll revamp your favorite pieces by adding antique lace, appliqués, jewelry or buttons by splashing her signature Jackson Pollock--esque splatter paint design ($30--$350). Sound too over-the-top for you? Turen says your input is vital to the process--she sits down with every customer to look through a guidebook packed with a large selection of vintage jewelry, brooches and other appliqués. In addition to her customized pieces, check out her self-designed collection, which offers vintage-inspired clothes reminiscent of the "opulence of the 1920s." Also on hand are other brands including Siwy Denim, Venessa Arizaga jewelry, House of Harlow and various vintage items.
