When designer Marie Gentillon realized she wasn’t keen on going from store to store to get buyers to pick up her line of denim, she solved the problem by opening a boutique of her own, where her jeans will debut this spring. In addition, she’s made Le Bourgeosie a hot spot to find fun, funky and affordable clothes. The cozy space is deep in the heart of Jamaica, Queens, and while the block is a tad dreary, once you’re inside, the eye-popping pink and turquoise walls brighten things up. Girls can pick up Garcia strapless polka-dot party dresses ($38) and Do & Be bustier-top tiered dresses ($50). Edgier fare includes Easel tunics with shoulder cutouts and chain details hanging from the neckline ($36). Accessorize with selects from the array of costume jewelry, including oversize bangles ($2 each), jeweled bib necklaces ($20) and faux-pearl earrings ($5).
