Manhattan – Meatpacking District
1 Horatio St at Eighth Ave
Owned by a former costume designer, this cozy shop--just above street level--is primarily devoted to dresses. You'll find simple summer slips along with more cocktail-worthy attire from designers like Alice + Trixie, Deener and Built By Wendy. While some will set you back hundreds of dollars, she offers a slew of more affordable options as well. Upstairs there's a trove of affordable lace-bedecked boyshorts from Mary Green.
