Riding on the preppy-girly concept, this Division Street shop carries all the usual suspects: Steven Alan, Cynthia Vincent, Mackage, Twinkle, Vince and Joie. Think “cute dresses layered with boyfriend cardigans,” says owner Erica Cook, who got her start at Shopbop’s brick and mortar, Bop, and most recently worked as a buyer and manager at Bucktown’s Tangerine. The shop offers a small selection for men, too: Alternative Apparel shirts, cardigan sweaters and, in the future, denim. Accessories such as J.W. Hulme handmade leather goods ($60–$600), dainty charm necklaces by AF House ($200–$300), Loquita scarves ($200–$500) and Cynthia Vincent shoes round out the selection, but for the most part, it’s all about the high-end basics (cardigans range from $150–$300 and dresses anywhere from $100–$500).
