An acclaimed online shop, LittleGifts honors man’s best friend—and a few of his other pals too—with a slew of pet-themed gifts and accessories. Dog lovers can choose their favorite breed—from fluffy shih tzus to honorable great danes—to emblazon on their item of choice, be it something big, such as an umbrella or garden flag, or something discrete, such as a magnet or a baby’s forehead. Beyond canines, the shop carries merchandise modeled after more than 20 other animals including cats, turtles, and even turkeys. Pets can get in on the action themselves, thanks to sparkly charms for their collars and wag tags marked with titles, such as "boss," "flirt," and "best in show."
A woman's shape is always beautiful, but sometimes it needs a little tweak here or there. Colombia Jeans Levantapompis specializes in shapewear for just these situations. Their trademark butt-lifting jeans flatter curvy silhouettes with roomier seats and sturdy, double-button waistbands. They also vend a variety of corsets, which are available in sweet florals and plaids as well as saucier animal prints.
It looks a little like a UPS truck that’s been driven through a glam-rock concert. But the only velvet goldmine patrons will find inside this mobile boutique are those hanging on racks amid other fashionable finds. For owners Danielle Mazzurco and Lisa Dunn, owning a clothing-store stuck inside some mall seemed neither exciting nor convenient for customers. To solve the problem, they drive their signature pink-and-black truck through New York and New Jersey outfitting visitors and their friends with rare brands of clothing, jewelry, and accessories.
