La Bella Shoes

The profusion of on-trend clothing is a big enough draw, but the killer emerging-designer shoe selection (DusicaDusica, Loeffler Randall, Eileen Shields, Pedro García) only sweetens the deal. La Bella Shoes also carries handbags from designers such as Andrea Brueckner, DusicaDusica, Calleen Cordero, and Kooba.

Kate Daniels

The selection here is so stunningly ahead of the curve that it could easily rival that of any insider-favored big-city boutique. The proof: Lines like Nili Lotan and Hanii Y. are currently in-store; look for swimsuits from D&G and Hermès, plus pieces from Alexander Wang.
