Shopping Around: Looking Good

News From The Gold Coast



Luxe Basics

Jean Genius

No matter how many you own, chances are you keep reaching for that same pair of jeans—the ones that fit perfectly. Where can you find your dream denim? blues jean bar on East Elm stocks all the top brands, and its staff is dedicated to finding the most flattering pairs. “This is not just a retail store,” says manager Liz McKay. “We’re offering a service. Customers tell us size, fit and wash and we pull the jeans that will be best for them. We make sure everything fits perfectly.” If you need your jeans shortened or tailored, they’ll handle that too. Popular lines include Fidelity, Joe’s, Paige, Hudson and a new jean called Asbury Park, with the straight-leg look continuing to be hot for fall, along with skinnies and colored jeans in richer, darker hues. In addition to jeans, BJB carries its own line of tops as well as brands like Blue Pearl by Allen Schwartz and Julie Brown, and philanthropic lines such as TOMS, which donates a pair of shoes or glasses for each pair purchased, and Pact, a line of underwear, tanks, leggings and socks that donates to different charities every season. No time to shop? Try BJB Express. You e-mail what you’re looking for and you’ll be sent a package with options; keep what you like and send the rest back in the prepaid shipping box. 19 East Elm Street, (203) 340-2945; thebluesjeanbar.com

Luxe Basics

Searching for timeless clothes that are also modern and up-to-date? Fashion veteran steven alan is a newcomer to Greenwich Avenue—joining the ranks of top designers moving in—whose shops feature men’s and women’s classics with a twist and a selection of home goods. For fall the new lines include basics like luxe knits, well-fitted shirts and pieces that play with proportion as well as layering, such as turtlenecks with shirttails peeking out or dresses styled over pants. Comfort is key, as seen in pieces such as the City Sweatshirt Dress. His overall aesthetic tends toward the neutral but with pops of color for autumn in wine, mustard and seafoam and mixed textures—velvet with leather, for instance. Understated looks are completed with the American-made footwear, with ankle boots and wedge oxfords being shown for fall. In the home collection, Alan sources from up-and-coming designers with a range of accessories such as pillows, blankets and baskets as well as handmade ceramics, imported linens, and essentials for the table. 82 Greenwich Avenue, (203) 714-8062; stevenalan.com

Skin Boutique

Think you need to travel to the city to get elite-level skin care? That’s the gripe that dermatologist Kim Nichols heard from so many friends and family members in the suburbs that she decided to open her own office in town, nicholsmd, also known as “The Boutique.” This Harvard- and NYU-educated doctor who practiced in New York for six years now offers cosmetic and medical dermatology in a sleek, modern, spa-like space on the Post Road. “I’m known for making people look beautiful but not done or overdone,” says Dr. Nichols. In her arsenal: the latest laser technology for removing brown spots and smoothing away wrinkles, as well as Botox and fillers. Dr. Nichols is also offering a noninvasive fat-reduction procedure called Liposonix that can target specific areas, such as the stomach, back of arms, back of thighs or knees, in one or two sessions. She includes a full-body skin exam as part of her consultations, so her busy clients get their annual skin screenings covered while they’re also getting advice on beauty concerns. For those who are truly time pressed, there’s the Boutique at Home concierge service, where Dr. Nichols performs aesthetic procedures in your home. Yes, she makes house calls. 469 West Putnam Avenue, (203) 862-4000; kimnicholsmd.com
