Affordable Fashions

Whim Boutique

Bronxville/Mount Kisco; www.whimlove.com
In a sea of luxury shopping experiences, Whim Boutique is a breath of fresh air for shoppers who enjoy trend-driven looks without having to empty their pockets. Owner Vivian Hoffman curates the store’s offerings to give shoppers Insta-worthy clothing, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. It’s easy to shop the store’s casual-yet-stylish items through their website, from their Instagram feed, or at either of their two Westchester locations.


New Women’s Fashion Boutique

Love Bella

Rye
Located on Rye’s main drag, this new entry has Westchester fashionistas buzzing. The second Love Bella location in the county (the other is in Larchmont; there’s also a Charleston, SC, outpost) — offers the same fun mix of casual styles: flowy, brightly colored tops and dresses, along with perfect-for-summer accessories. With an always-on-point storefront display, Love Bella served its fans smartly during lockdown, with appointment-only sessions, curbside pickup, free delivery, and even FaceTime shopping.

Handcrafted Jewelry/Accessories

Blue & May

Scarsdale; www.blueandmay.com
It can be hard to find something unique in the crowded jewelry market. Enter Blue & May’s handcrafted designs and accessories, which showcase natural fibers, silver, stones, and raw leather, for a chic yet earthy look. The online shop also features textile art, including shawls, scarves, and wraps.


NYC-Style Wedding Dresses

Jessica Haley Bridal

Rye; www.jessicahaleybridal.com
Trendy brands that brides typically head to Manhattan for — including Reem Acra, Adam Zohar, and Alon Livne — would be reason enough to shop at this Rye newbie. But sisters Jessica Ulrich (who’s also a wedding photographer) and Haley Visk aren’t just obsessed with weddings and fashion; they’re also gurus of providing personalized attention, whether you’re shopping in-store or social distancing with a virtual-styling service.


Foodie Gifts

Phat Olive

Katonah; www.phatoliveoil.com
If you’re looking to impress a foodie, this is the place to select your gift. At this chef-inspired shop/taproom, you can choose from a variety of ultra-premium extra-virgin olive oils and imported-from-Modena balsamics, as well as Hudson Valley-made goodies, like artisan jams, syrups, granolas, and organic doggie treats. Phat Olive also offers fun experiences, like food demos, nutritional lectures, and knife-skills workshops.

Cashmere

Palmer & Purchase

Larchmont and Rye; www.palmerandpurchase.com
This apparel-and-accessories shop offers a luxe yet affordable cashmere collection, including everything from boxy pullovers, simple dusters, and sweatshirts to travel-friendly toppers, wraps, and scarfs — available in both earth tones and rich hues. Buttery soft and warm, every piece is 100% cashmere, in 3-7-gauge knits, serving as a thoughtful and lavish gift for another or yourself.


Party Favors

Cake Pops at The Poppery

Mount Kisco; www.the-poppery.com
The Poppery really puts the pop in cake pops. Lots of places trot out run-of-the-mill sticks sporting multicolored sprinkles and icings, but founder Alexa Esposito produces outside-the-box custom designs, including everything from Star Wars-themed, mermaid, and SpongeBob pops to taco pops, tuxedo pops (great for weddings), and even Trinidadian cigar pops.

Luxury Car-Buying Experience

Pepe Auto Group

White Plains; www.pepeautogroup.com
When it’s time to turn heads with a new Porsche, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, or Cadillac, this trusted auto dealer with seven regional locations is widely regarded as the local standard-bearer. With a knowledgeable sales staff who easily walk buyers through the ins and outs of marquee brands, Pepe continues to earn its spot as the local go-to for luxury rides.


Contemporary Brands Selection

Fado

Katonah; www.shopfado.com
Seeking stylish, contemporary brands that are on-trend but don’t want to make it look like you’re trying too hard? Then chill-vibe Fado is your go-to spot. You’ll find a to-die-for denim bar (AGOLDE, Citizens of Humanity, Jbrand, Levi’s), plus a wide selection of relaxed and well-priced separates, including dresses, tees, sweaters, outerwear, intimates, and loungewear from cultish lines like James Perse, Sanctuary, and Free People, among others.


Customer Service

Landsberg Jewelers

Rye Brook; www.landsbergjewelers.com
Serving the community since 1948, Landsberg Jewelers purveys superior service to patrons at every budget level, proferring a carefully curated product line, which includes such illustrious designers as Gurhan, Mattoli, Jane Taylor, and Roberto Demeglio. Swiss expert watch repair, too.


Personalized Gift

Custom Sneakers at Skinz Time

West Harrison; www.skinztime.com
Upgrade this year’s hottest footwear trend — sneakers in all forms (dad sneaker, anyone?) — with a custom design. Give West Harrison IT specialist John Visconti a pair of blank sneaks, and he’ll return them intricately hand-painted with any design of your choosing (think floral, pop-culture, or local landmark). From bachelorette-party gift to a Valentine’s Day surprise, these bespoke kicks are one-of-a-kind.

Urban-Chic Attire

Siren Boutique

Mamaroneck; www.sirenboutique.net
Looking for a trendy (yet reasonably priced) outfit that you don’t have to worry about seeing on your neighbor at the next gathering? Siren is your destination for one-of-a-kind urban-chic clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Warning: This cozy shop is hard to leave, but when you do, you’ll be giddy with your unique find.


Pearl Selection

R&M Woodrow Jewelers

Rye; www.woodrowjewelers.com
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but pearls are a woman’s. This Rye mainstay of 35 years boasts a refined selection of pearls for its ever-elegant Westchester clientele: everything from simple stud earrings to single strand necklaces and multicolored freshwater pearl bracelets to white South Sea pearl rings, from an impressive roster of designers, including the legendary Mikimoto, Honora, and Buccellati.

Leggings

J’aime

Scarsdale; www.jaime.store
This Scarsdale-founded activewear brand from sister and brother Jamie and Vijay Karia boasts leggings for adults and children in colorful, creative patterns and handcrafted designs inspired by street and contemporary art. Plus, the socially conscious brand partners with foundations like Books for Kids and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and creates custom collections, so customers can show their support in style.


Special-OccasionDress Shopping

Lord & Taylor

Scarsdale; www.lordandtaylor.com
For a gala, wedding, or any event in between, this major retailer offers a robust and elegant selection of eveningwear, from brands like Vince Camuto, Betsy & Adam, and Basix. Designs including fit-for-a-princess organza ball gowns, sexy sequined dresses, conservative illusion A-line gowns, and slim-fit suits and sportscoats will affordably outfit anyone from the prom-bound high schooler to the mother-of-the-bride.


Classic Wine Shop

Rochambeau Wines & Liquors

Dobbs Ferry; www.rochambeauwines.com
What exactly makes Rochambeau a classic? Maybe it’s the pedigree that comes with having been in business for more than 85 years. It could be the shelves full of famous French Bordeaux and Italian Brunello, as well as New World bottles of South African Chenin Blanc and dry Riesling from the Finger Lakes region. But likely, it’s due in great part to the expertise of Jeff Wooddy, who provides thoughtful pairings and recommendations to help you ace Wine Wednesday (and any other day of the week).
