Husband and wife Rob Magnotta and Winnie Beattie have opened their first boutique, filled with eclectic women’s threads ($97–$2,000), accessories ($41–$2,500) and vintage books ($13–$80) meant to imbue a cozy feeling. The space retains the original hardwood floors from its past life as an olive-oil factory and uses an antique post-office mail sorter for merchandise. Zebra-print rugs and tropical plants give it a nature-inspired vibe. Shoppers can also nab home goods such as Auntie Oti towels ($41) handwoven in India and beach-scented Apothia candles ($55). Embrace your inner romantic with Roseanna lace tops ($212) and Vanessa Bruno Athé chambray dresses ($306). Extra trimmings include Locals flip-flops ($18), which are native to Hawaiian drugstores; Jerome Dreyfuss linen-and-leather handbags ($288); and VK Lillie necklaces ($667) filled with healing crystals.
