There may be inches upon inches of snow on the ground, but the first spring deliveries are hitting our favorite boutiques, complete with some spectacular finds.
STUART & WRIGHT
The first delivery of Isabel Marant's Spring/Summer collection has arrived, including crisp spring jackets, ruffled dresses, and Marant's signature cozy-yet-sexy tanks and tees. (85 Lafayette Avenue)
This expertly-curated Brooklyn chain is just starting to get in goods from APC. Vena Cava, and more, but we're mostly obsessed with Etten Eller's spectacular gold necklaces, like this hammered nail collar piece. (For locations, visit shopbird.com)
THISTLE & CLOVER
The ladies of Thistle & Clover are getting new deliveries every day from indies like Edelweiss, Demy Lee, and Yunhi -- plus there are still a few spectacular sale items left from Holiday 2009 to take advange of. (221 DeKalb Avenue)
This LES eco-boutique boasts a series of lightweight cardigans in gauzy organic cotton that are making great-selling transition pieces for right now. The Melissa collection, as always, is practically selling out -- especially Vivienne Westwood's Anglomania rain boots, which we'd say would make expert snow boots for the weekend! (83 Orchard Street)
