The sparkly chandelier and plush red couch at ShiShi reveal the girly side of this urbanite oasis before you even begin pawing through the clothes: Flirty summer options like Urban Behavior cotton paper-bag-waist shorts ($55) and Theme black eyelet-edged cotton rompers ($69) are an affordable way to stay on-trend this spring, and the jewelry is equally enticing. Outfit-reviving pieces like graphic black earrings made from antique clock hands are a steal at $25, while Ronimo cameo necklaces ($72--$79) and an oversize leather-and-crystal cocktail ring from Brazilian designer Marly Moretti ($79) look way more expensive than their price tags suggest. Be sure to check out the other accessories, including a selection of Seychelles wedges ($115) in every shape and size. 2488 Broadway between 92nd and 93rd Sts (646-692-4510, shishinyc.com)

The sheer volume and diversity of fashionable items here might tempt you into a shopping spree—and if you choose to indulge, you can spend without draining your bank account. A rack of feminine dresses ($39--$69)—including a blue-and-white striped frock from Hot & Delicious ($46)—is the centerpiece of the space, but other highlights include sterling-silver rose rings ($22--$45) and amber jewelry from the owner's native Poland (from $39). If you're in need of basics, striped silk scarves ($24) and leggings in all colors and textures ($10--$28) are plentiful. 102A Nassau Ave between Eckford and Leonard Sts, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (347-987-3929, fanaberienyc.com).
