So I overheard a conversation at the gym a few weeks back, about clothes that were flying out of a store and how customers couldn’t get enough of them. Needless to say, I had to know...
Turns out that I was listening to Nikki DeConza talking about her Locust Valley boutique Silhouette and a line of clothes from Britain called Charli London.
Nikki says her shop is the only distributor of Charli in the Northeast and that her customers love the super soft jersey basics because they can be paired up for a city feel during the week, yet can be relaxed and sophisticated for weekend wear.
The Charli spring catalog bears that out, with some beautifully draped jersey dresses, a lovely ruffled vest, and this fab zip cardigan that is the perfect vacation cover-up. Prices run from $105 to $130 for pants, $70 to $115 for tanks, $180 to $220 for dresses.
You can check it all out at Silhouette, 22 Forest Ave., Locust Valley (the lower level of G. Willikers).
Or, starting next Monday, July 12, there will be a series of trunk shows in all three Long Island Equinox shops (which are open to the public even if you don’t belong to the gym). Here’s the schedule:
July 12 to 13: Great Neck, 90 E. Shore Rd.
July 14 to 15: Woodbury, 7550 Jericho Tpke.
July 19 to 20: Roslyn, 90 Northern Blvd.
