Wandered in while doing some birthday shopping for my sister. Found a great pair of shoes for my sister and myself. The girls were incredibly lovely and when it turned out I got the wrong size for my sister exchanging them was very easy.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to

popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
