Since 1989, The Carousel Boutique’s clothier Beth Anne Kenna has outfitted ankle biters with homespun and designer children's fashions in boys’ sizes newborn to 4T and girls’ sizes newborn to 10. She crafts matching doll dresses, polka-dot hair bows from grosgrain ribbon, and baby booties by hand. She also personalizes ensembles with custom embroidery or skull and smiley ribbons, which allows parents to distinguish the good twin from the bad one.
Featuring fits for petite frames to plus sizes, In High Cotton festoons its racks and display cases with women's clothing, jewelry and accessories that capture a spectrum of aesthetics, from casual wear to current trends. Tribal tops made from 100% cotton ($28.99) encase skin in earthy softness, and Alley Rose toppers ($18.99) provide stealthy support for chests or hips in a crayon box worth of hues. Sandman Creations' sleep shirts ($28.99) snuggle against snoozers, trapping bad dreams and marauding tooth fairies in combed cotton festooned with lighthearted designs. Earring Plaza earrings dangle from lobes ($8.99), sweeping against shoulders as they support Passion purses ($29.99) whose unzipped mouths wait hungrily to be fed wallets, cell phones, and leftover deli meats.
Within a carpeted storefront flanked with mannequins rocking the latest looks, David's Tuxedos's ace personnel fits clientele with dapper threads, hats, and footwear for formal events and special occasions. Replete with accessories such as bow ties, cummerbunds, and studs, tuxedos embrace bodies with suits and vest styles tailored to wedding ceremonies, proms, or other school functions. A special selection of brightly colored tuxedos in 10 different shades is also available for purchase or rental in sizes up to 2X and in tall varieties.
Skinny Tees' selection of seamless, snug-fitting camisoles, T-shirts, and other one-size-fits-most women's wear hugs curves, slimming down wearers' figures as much as two sizes. Camisoles in more than 50 colors beg to become part of layered outfits and fit snugly without rolling up, keeping bellybuttons from showing off during yoga or long escalator rides. Dresses and leggings, also crafted in a single size, are available in hues and prints including black, bubblegum pink, and leopard turquoise. American factories turn out the items when they are not being used for car weddings, and the threads' stretchy, soft construction is ideal for expectant mothers.
Sportsman's Shop T&T Sports, which has been in service for more than 60 years, preps athletes for myriad playing fields with equipment and apparel from brands such as Adidas, Easton, New Balance, and Nike. Players can wiggle into the flexible fibers of Under Armour duds such as women's comp shorts ($24.99) or the Tech T ($19.99), which affords drying protection against moisture buildups and sneezy fire hydrants. For Canton-bound flankers and soft-handed tire targets, rubber-covered Wilson footballs ($18.99) provide a more pliable catching surface, and Baden basketballs ($27.99) supply hoopsters with bouncy adaptability for indoor or outdoor play. Protect hand branches from a baseball bat's reverberating sting by sliding finger-first into a pair of Easton batting gloves ($12.99). Use the mesh links of a volleyball net ($30.29) to separate spiked shots or finally achieve checkered tan lines.
