The antithesis of fast fashion, this little indie store in North Center shuns trends. Instead, shopkeeper Leigh Deleonardo supports makers (most of them local) who construct their wares in small batches. As a result, everything feels special: gauzy scarves made from hand-spun linen, comfortable day dresses perfect for hot weather, and vintage-inspired jewelry cast in silver and bronze. Nice touch: A small atelier in back allows the designers to work onsite.
