Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Let someone else do all the hard work with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of women’s apparel and accessories at NYLA Kensington Boutique, located in the heart of Kensington’s business district.
NYLA Kensington drapes limbs with up-to-the-minute fashion and stocks hard-to-find labels in styles ranging from the classically wearable to the eclectic. Shoes, accessories, and jewelry made by local artists tuck themselves away next to lines such as Alternative Apparel, 3 Dots, Mondani, and Saint Grace. Toss on a Michelle purple dolman top ($29.95), or quickly don an Alternative Apparel burnout tee ($29.95) when heading out the door to buy flowers for a roommate after accidentally flushing her mattress down the toilet.
Fashion-forward shoppers can appear angelic in the Magazine white baby-doll dress ($32.95), denimize torso pedestals with Suko jeans ($78.95), or dangle a Big Buddha Cozumel bag ($85) from a shoulder that’s been lobbying hard for a new purse. Beautiful hardwood floors, chandeliers, and artistically arranged wares beckon browsers to make little fashion discoveries.
