Name: Stuart & Wright Hatched: September '06 Where: 85 Lafayette St., Brooklyn Come for... A tidy pile of indie fashion favorites: A.P.C. sundresses, Cheap Monday jeans, and Loeffler Randall shoes to match. Plus, the vintage Eiffel Tower sign in front is a Brooklyn Landmark that's been there for 40 years. Stay for... The easy laid back vibe of owner Celeste Wright, who left her job as a Steven Alan buyer last year to curate her very own boutique with partner Alec Stuart (No, they are not married. Yes, they finish each other's sentences.) Allowance: Jeans for $65, dresses for $150 - $200, flats for $90 and heels for $150 - $250. And we care because...?: It's rare a store has an equally great selection for both men and women - besides Opening Ceremony, this is the boutique that gets it right. Plus, sometimes you want a little adventure with your fashion, and the store is nestled in Brooklyn's Fort Greene, which might be our new favorite neighborhood (so many juice places! so close to Target!).

The jewelry case loves Moby Dick.
