’cause i’m pretty certain this place is on HIT.
Okay, so Lacadia Olsen is just about the cutest thing ever. Have you met her? If not, you really should. You all know how much I love a fashionista with an urban/hippie vibe. Lacadia is that girl. Best news ever… she owns the most fabulous little shop in midtown called CUFFS and it fulfills this stylist’s fashion covet quotient (say that five times fast).
I’m hopeful that many of you peruse there often, but for those of you who do not, what the hell?! Seriously, this place is so awesome. For those that don’t dwell in the city permits, Cuffs has a thorough and well stocked online presence. Check it.
Lacadia knows what’s up. She carries designs that are unusual and edgy and high-fashion, but that are priced reasonably. Great news, too, she carries both mens and womenswear. Hello?! When I went in recently to pay a little visit, I found the most perfect lace illusion dress. Sleeveless, tulled-out and see through. Um, perfection. I’ll wear it to a fancy art event and everyone will ask if it’s Gaultier because it’s avant garde and gothic and amazing. It’s not, it’s better. And guess what? It was $48. Swear. That’s how Cuffs rolls– no imitations, just beautifully original hipster wear, both vintage and new for the stylista/o who likes to look haute for a price that will make you beg for more. Don’t believe me, go see for yourself.
How about a pair of teensy tiny navy and white striped shorts with gold buttons? A long graffiti maxi or a floral A-line dress with ruffle applique upon the shoulder? A bright orange feathered necklace with copper accents? She’s got it going on…
Shop ’till you drop and tell her S|B sent you. You’ll want to get cuffed, too. ;-)
