Designer Stacey Bendet strikes again with a third location for her whimsical womenswear line (the others are on the Upper East Side and in Midtown West). This 2,000-square-foot boutique packs the same high-energy punch of the other locales, with quirky retro influences and graphic-print furniture. Since starting the collection in 2002 with a line of pants, Bendet has expanded the label to include ladylike separates. Amp up your daytime duds with paisley-print tailored pants ($242), cap-sleeve peplum tops ($330) and metallic blazers ($495). Items such as printed A-line dresses ($698) and belted frocks ($440) will have you party-ready in an instant. • 646-747-1232, Mon–Wed, Sun 11am–7pm; Thu–Sat 11am–8pm.
