Since 1990, Pitaya has fashioned its own line of American-made clothes for ladies looking to stay stylish no matter the season. Fresh merchandise hits the store weekly—stock up on what's hot so you're not forced to design makeshift togas from dead leaves and discarded cornhusks. Annettes can attract admiring passersby with the mesh ballerina skirt ($24), whereas Carols can give their legs a big pair hug with the linen-blend trousers](http://bit.ly/ds6muD) ($39). The abstract satin halter ($34) emits elegance sprinkled with adventure, similar to a cocktail party held on the side of a cliff, and the black slouchy V-tee ($22) gives décolletages the social exposure not allowed by tyrannical turtlenecks or stifling scarves.
Whatever your fashion niche, Pitaya has quality accessories to match, such as the gold-mixed bangle set ($10), sparkling vintage-inspired oversized cocktail ring($15), and silver-circle chandelier earrings ($8). Dress to the nines for your third attempt at auditioning for 42nd Street with the attire of Pitaya.
