Originally opened by owner Hillary Dutcher in Columbus, Ohio, Ivy Hill Boutique packs its cozy shop with women’s jewelry, apparel, and accessories from both well-known and emerging designers. Shoppers of every primping preference can adorn themselves in Idylle novelty tees ($48), fend off winged monkeys with a Tolani scarf ($78), and store their valuable Confederate scrip in Delux wallets ($26). Otherwise, wrap yourself in finery from Trina Turk and Susana Monaco (both starting at $70) to draw admiring stares from every passerby and envious stares from every naked passerby. Jewelry lovers, meanwhile, can bedazzle themselves with agate rings ($28), Viv and Ingrid birthstone stud earrings ($18), and David Aubrey initial necklaces ($48). One quick wallop from a Big Buddha handbag ($70 and up) is enough to dispatch up to seven shoplifters at a time, after which you can wash your hands of the whole affair with Gianna Rose soaps ($12 and up) and light a sage candle ($26 and up) in memory of your favorite Star Wars stormtrooper.
