Bunny Patch clothes infants, toddlers, and older children in a large selection of thoroughly vetted, gently worn, high-quality attire. Available articles rotate constantly, and past baby coverings include summer digs such as a cream-and-teal outfit by Royal Child, ideal for issuing diaper-changing decrees atop sandcastle towers ($22). Older moppets blend into flowerbeds with petal-infused dresses by Lilly Pulitzer ($14), Fancy Threads ($24), and Beaux & Belles ($24). Onesies have ranged from a ruffled lavender number by Little Diamonds ($22) to Petit Ami's sky-blue pleated celebration of farming, depicting tractors and blooming fauna ($14). The boutique's assortment of shoes from designers such as Bon Bebe ($6) and Ralph Lauren ($10) protects tiny toes from harrowing trips to the market and tickle-induced cries of "Wee!"
Wardrobe 360's resident fashionistas curate an ever-changing collection of threads that beg for adoring new owners. The shop's shelves groan beneath a lineup as stylish as a monogrammed unicorn, helmed by designers such as Cole Haan, Steve Madden, and Ralph Lauren. Holdings vary week to week but have recently included such items as a pair of Coach sandals ($18) and a Donald J. Pliner purse ($50). A vibrant pair of Lilly Pulitzer slacks ($15) bestows their wearer with the color and confidence to ask a peacock neighbor to return borrowed tools. The recycling-minded location also houses a sweeping selection of bags and purses, as well as jewelry, watches, and other accessories.
Angie Acosta, founder of Queen City DanceOut, has a simple motto for her students: "If you're moving, you're doing it right." This encouraging, low-pressure attitude attracts people of all ages to her dance-inspired fitness classes, which meet at 18 public locations. Angie and her instructors aim to make exercise feel like a celebration and a refreshing break rather than a dreaded routine. To this end, their classes incorporate intuitive dance moves and invigorating music. DanceOut, the signature course, blends genres as diverse as swing, hip-hop, and reggae into a workout, relying on repetition and basic choreography to keep everyone grooving. Other highlights of the curriculum include the Latin rhythms of Zumba; the Dance Impact class, which fuses dance and kickboxing; and JamStrong, a mixture of core-conditioning, dance, and fun.
Community is a central aspect of every DanceOut class. As pupils practice their twirls, they can follow both the teacher and the Jam Crew—a team of regulars who help make the steps easy to follow and can assist fellow dancers. In addition to group workouts, instructors host skill workshops such as Booty Bootcamp, where attendees learn rump-shaking techniques and how to turn any chair into a rocking chair. They also put on performances and lead private classes for special events and parties.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
