Three East Village Shops with Coats to Die Faux

Edited by

Inspired by Kate Lanphear lauding the East Village as her shopping stomping grounds, I plucked my bum up off the interwebs and hit the road. I dropped myself off on E. 9th Street and journeyed eastbound and up. What struck my fancy in a few stores in particular were the awesome caliber of faux fur jackets, which usually just strike me as faux pas. In case you don’t have a few thou to spend on a few animals’ worth of jacket, try these real life finds in these fantastic indie boutiques.

Boutique Critique:: AvaMaria: Look 1

Edited by

AvaMaria is tucked away along the cobblestones of Crosby St just So. of Ho.

Store owner, and former professional ballroom dancer, Katherine Virketiene’s buying philosophy lies in that when you buy something one season, you’re going to have it forever. Therefore, she doesn’t always scramble to get the very newest in Ava Maria, much of her energy goes to finding the best never-before-worn pieces from recent seasons past, and sells them a discount.

Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 3

Edited by

There are infinite ways to wind up in Court, but you’ve got to be pretty smart to get out of there guilt-free. Thankfully store owners Lisa and Nicole have stocked the store with highly logical pieces. Including this multi-funktional five-way “skirt”, and a dress I bought from them a while back by Something Else that zips everywhere. Court is brimming with gems like these.

Now you have even more of a reason to go to Court: 15% off when you mention FashionIndie!
