Authenticity is key at E-Collectique Runway Boutique, where every previously owned dress, necklace, and satin pump is marked with a verified designer or vintage label. Pristine white walls surround high-fashion women’s wares that range from items from current lines to vintage pieces that date back more than a century. Shoppers can peruse clothing and accessories from couture designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, and Gucci, as well as ready-to-wear styles from makers such as American Apparel and Ralph Lauren.
Helmed by a professional duo of seamstresses, Fabric Shapers steers apprentices of all skill levels through two-hour private sewing lessons tailored to their individual goals and projects. Amateur stitchers can absorb basic threading techniques as those with prior knowhow learn to tackle more advanced subjects, such as linebackers made from yarn or fashion-design concepts. Acquire the skills to hem your own pants, or study the art of alteration for snugger, more flattering duds. Instructors can also guide students as they chart schematics for a custom garment styled from preexisting apparel, transforming an obsolete dress into a chic blazer or several hundred blindfolds for an upcoming consortium of piñata aficionados.

Owner Anna Zuckerman's late husband opened Sydney b. A Children's Boutique to make a mark on the world with "Sydney", their daughter's name, on it. Today, Anna and her staff keep the boutique stocked with hard-to-find, high-quality children's clothes from brands such as Zutano and Deux par Deux. They travel to New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and elsewhere to keep the shop filled with dresses, tutus, and charm bracelets, and there are plenty of toys, outfits for boys, and baby gifts as well. The team has a rule of thumb that customers shouldn't be able to find anything in the shop at a big-box store—they exclusively seek out unique finds that are well worth the expense.
As customers admire rows of Primigi shoes or Hello Kitty–themed goodies, tykes can watch kid-friendly shows or assemble puzzles. The staff also offers ear piercing to help little ladies pair their couture finds with a pair of pearls or their grandmother's heirloom gauges.
Vero's menu silences the chatters of sweet teeth with sugar-laced treats such as Venetian-style fried dough, decadent hot and cold specialty drinks, and more than 60 flavors of homemade gelato and sorbet. Dessert definitions are challenged with bowls of frosty spaghetti and meatballs ($4.99), which feature noodle-shaped vanilla gelato festooned with coconut shavings, a strawberry topping, and two spherical scoops of chocolate ice cream. Mouths can celebrate the union of divergent temperatures as they nibble through the warm fried-dough base and unwarm gelato ceiling of the hot-and-cold sundae dough ($5.99), or revel wholly in frozen flavors with a fresh-squeezed lemon shaky ($2.49), both refreshing and sweet, like a school teacher who dispenses discipline with a super soaker. Pep-deficient steps might opt for one of Vero’s coffee-based libations, such as a black eye ($2.49 for a single) that slugs exhaustion with a one-two punch of fresh coffee and two espresso shots.
