Midtown Nursery supplies phytophiles with a selection of flora and garden products. Bolster your flower portfolio with chrysanthemums ($6)––whose petals both prettify a garden and can be boiled to create a germ-slaying tea that's necessary for survival when playing in fast-food ball pits––and pansies, a colorful walkway decoration ($2.25 per half dozen). Pumpkins are available for autumnal carvings ($1–$45), and Christmas trees (starting at $45), most of which are fraser firs, are delivered to Midtown Nursery by elves brandishing human-sized axes.
Owner Tanyel Hobson-Walton and the fashion experts at Eye-Con Couture outfit ladies with fashions by Jeffrey Campbell, 5th Culture, Plastic Denim, Double Zero, Pixie Dust, L.A.M.B. and Ya. Within the light-filled boutique, customers sit on plush red chairs as trained stylists help to coordinate looks that match their body type, personality, or fanaticism for Jackson Pollock. Cream and black stripes flow down a loose jumper ($59.99), and a bright red rain coat updates bygone styles with three buttons, a sleek, straight fit, and a knee-length hem ($69). Eight delicate roses deck the black rosary clutch ($34), and feet flash with metallic skulls on the Iron Fist blush skull pump ($64), whose platforms allow fashionistas to stand tall and be admitted to favorite roller coasters.
A 72" rope necklace of cultured, black freshwater pearls superbly fits any occasion; it's classic and refined without seeming ostentatious. If the black-pearl necklace doesn't excite your inner oyster, the value of this Groupon ($390) can be applied toward another piece of jewelry from Jewelers' Choice. For the discerning Y-chromosomer, a suave water-resistant watch from Seiko ($350) tells the time, be it bedtime or hotdog time. Designer collection selections fill spatiotemporal gaps in the fabric of the showroom with gorgeous, top-shelf adornments. A Bruni ring of palladium silver and yellow gold ($1,650) glitters with chocolate diamonds and white sapphires, while a white-gold solitaire ring from the Sylvie Collection chimes in at $725. Check out some additional jewelry options here, or stop by the Jewelers' Choice Wheelis Drive showroom.
