Bedazzled Boutique If you haven’t yet discovered Bedazzled Boutique, you’re in for a treat. With an eclectic mix of funky rocker apparel, eveningwear and tons of jeans, it’s a place where moms and daughters can shop together. This fun, offbeat store’s girlier items aren’t for the fashion-shy—which is exactly why the place is so cool. For the ladies, Bedazzled features gowns and cocktail dresses from Kablan, Badgley Mischka and Marc Bouwer. 206 S. Newtown Square Road, Newtown Square; (610) 359-1707, bedazzledboutique.com.
Seven Stones This “cowboys and Indians” store has found a niche peddling authentic Native American jewelry and western apparel. Who cares what the fashionistas say: Every girl needs a pair of rockin’ cowboy boots—and this is definitely the place to find a pair with flair. If you’re into Native American music, Seven Stones has the largest collection on the East Coast, along with semiprecious stones and jewelry. Moccasins are another draw, as well as leather jackets (with or without fringes), belts, wallets and embellished, textured handbags. 212 W. State St., Media; (610) 627-1177, sevenstonesgallery.com.
Sorella Boutique With Delaware County blood running through their veins, sisters Charlene Mulholland and Jeanine Sherry have a pretty good grasp of what their clientele want in their closets—and where a boutique owner has to go to get it. Most of their finds come from the West Coast, a favorite shopping destination of these sibs, who stock their popular boutique with clothes that are less conservative than what you typically find on the Main Line. Along with big names, Sorella stocks newer lines like Sworn Virgins, eco-friendly clothing made from bamboo. Stay ahead of jewelry trends with gorgeous, colorful necklaces in delicate and chunky designs from Robert Rose, Charles Albert and Smart Glass. Also check out the unique handmade jewelry embellished with pearls and semiprecious stones. 23 E. State St., Media; (610) 566-2393, sorellashop.com.
Maria Fe’s and Mommie’s Upscale Consignment This Malvern mainstay offers unique, contemporary designer clothing—much of it priced at less than half of what it would cost new, and all of it in mint condition. Browsing is a treat when you’re rewarded with discounts this deep on brands like 7 for All Mankind, Cambio, Diesel, Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Coach, Burberry, Dooney & Bourke and Louis Vuitton. The boutique’s ever-changing inventory ranges from luxe furs and cocktail dresses to hats, scarves, accessories and more. 117 E. King St., (610) 407-4570.
Posh Collections There’s a lot of fun stuff packed into this petite boutique, from casual tees to stylish suits for the working gal. Hot this season: plush, long sweaters with cropped sleeves, layered with long-sleeve tees and turtlenecks. Shin Choi and Whim are among those leading this trend, with soft yarns spun into styles that transform Saturday-afternoon street wear into Saturday-night chic—and business attire into something far more hip. And don’t be shocked by the sudden inundation of knit pants from the likes of Vince; their clean lines are designed to complement all those cozy car sweaters they’ll be layered under. White is still a great look for fall—and if you want to make a statement, A.B.S. has an ivory “pea” dress that looks fabulous paired with a black turtleneck and tall boots. 103 E. King St., (610) 644-7220, poshcollections.com.
