Cutie Room

Brooklyn Denim Co. Finding the perfect pair of jeans can take hours, which is why we prefer to do all of our trying-on in one shop. This new Williamsburg boutique carries men’s and women’s staples, including Hudson, James Jeans, Habitual and lesser-known American-made brands like Simon Miller and Kill City. BDC is also one of the few stores in the country to stock LVC, a line that replicates Levi’s jeans from the 1960s--80s ($250--$395). As an added bonus, an in-house tailor will hem your jeans pro bono. Oh, and while you’re there, don’t forget to dress up your dungarees with ML Brown leather belts ($110) and vintage flannel shirts ($68). 85 North 3rd St at Wythe Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-782-2600, Mon--Fri 11am--8pm; Sat 11am--7pm; Sun noon--6pm.

Cutie Room Sachiko Nagata wanted to take advantage of the burgeoning Bowery scene, so she transplanted her five-year-old Nolita shop to the middle of the action. The new boutique boasts the same shabby-chic feel as the old one, but it’s the prices we come here for—few items in the store cost more than $200. We’re especially digging Arc and Co’s breezy draped tunics ($128), designer pal Amanda Uprichard’s adorable star-printed jumpsuits ($260), and Flying Tomato’s hippie-chic embroidered dresses ($78). Mention TONY to recieve 20 percent off headbands and vintage purses through April 30. 5 Rivington St between Bowery and Chrystie St (212-925-2557, Mon--Fri noon--7pm; Sat, Sun noon--8pm.

Foravi This newbie is bringing a downtown edge to the UES, offering an assortment of avant-garde designers and limited-edition pieces. Trendsetters can get their mitts on flirty Alexia Admor sequin-embellished shift dresses ($325) and Vivienne Westwood for Anglomania and Melissa ankle-boot wellies ($155). Shop the boutique’s house line for splash-making garments, including Sohung Designs for Foravi voluminous ruffled organza skirts ($975). And don’t miss out on owner Devora Avikzer Goltry’s private vintage jewelry collection, including a multi-strand bracelet in antique brass ($225). Mention TONY to receive 15 percent off through May 28. 1067 Madison Ave between 80th and 81st Sts (212-288-1773, Mon-Sat 11am--7pm, Sun 11am--6pm.

Jrme Dreyfuss You’ll be preening like a Parisian model after you snag some droolworthy arm candy at this Soho shop. The handbag designer and husband of Isabel Marant displays his superluxe creations on a rustic wooden hutch and fills his studio-showroom with flat-screen TVs playing French music videos. Our fantasy shopping spree includes slouchy leather shoulder bags with zippered pockets ($905), cross-body messengers with buckle closures ($610) and zebra-printed totes with braided detailing ($2,335). Ooh la la! 473 Broome St between Greene and Wooster Sts (212-334-6920, Mon--Sat 11am--7pm; Sun noon--7pm.

Housing Works Thrift Shops Hell’s Kitchen Looking like a rock star won’t cost you a week’s pay if you know where to shop—like the newest addition to the Housing Works thrifty family. Gently used designer threads (Dior, BCBG Max Azria, etc.) fill this 2,500-square-foot space, which’ll serve as the flagship location for men’s haberdashery. We’re crushing on a floral-print Milly dress ($85), summery Christian Louboutin cork wedges ($85) and an Ermenegildo Zegna men’s leather jacket ($145). The owners also plan to partner with Broadway and Off Broadway theaters to provide discounted tickets and special performances for Housing Works customers. Mention TONY to receive 20 percent off through April 30. 730--732 Ninth Ave between 49th and 50th Sts (646-963-2665, Mon--Sat 11am--8pm; Sun 11am--6pm.
