Laurie Solet is named for owner Laurie Solet, who returned to St. Louis after years spent wheeling and dealing in Hollywood—bringing with her a leather-lined wave of fashion plus three ships laden with beaver pelts and exotic spices. Both of Laurie's boutiques offer a wide range of trendy apparel—including items from designers such as Melie Bianco, Black Halo, BB Dakota, La Mer, Amrita Singh, Candace Ang, and more, as well as Laurie's own private label—in an affordable price range. Pick up basics like an Alternative Apparel "Diane" Burnout V-neck for $45, and accessorize it with a statement Avant Garde "Pierre" double ring for $95. If one shoulder is more flammable than the other, keep it cool with an Ella Moss one-shoulder top ($108) and pair it with a Hobo "Lauren" exotic clutch ($108) stuffed with all your favorite toucans, dodo birds, and coral snakes. Otherwise, keep it light for a beach vacation or desert-island stranding in a Splendid stripe racerback tank ($50) and Free People cargo shorts ($68).
