Among the bustling cafés, organic grocers, and colorful boutiques lining Jackson's hip Fondren district lies The Shoe Bar @ Pieces. Inside, its black-and-white checkered floor and splashy rugs echo the energy fueling the urban neighborhood outside. Shelves stretch from floor to ceiling, tight with shoeboxes from high-end brands such as Coconuts and bebe. Full-size mirrors reflect women draped in duds by Nightcap and Religion as they look for approval from the parrots perched on their shoulders. Along with shoes and clothing, the style-conscious retailers also hawk accessories including jewelry designed by local artists.
