La Boutique Upscale Resale houses new and gently used clothes from brands such as Coach and White House Black Market. Distract a building inspector from your tenement’s lack of traditional “ceiling” with stylish jeans ($18 or less) or a smart strapless dress ($15), each neatly paired with bold footwear such as apple-green stilettos ($14) or brown-fringe boots ($15). Money-savvy fashionistas can add flare to their new ensembles with sets of Newell’s Jewels accessories ($8–$28) or a pair of gem-drop earrings from La Boutique's exclusive line of jewelry ($7). The shop’s artful array of shoes, bags, and jewelry contrast with funky antique clocks, tall candles, and orchid plants, creating the most eye-pleasing place to shop outside of a strip mall designed by M.C. Escher.
