Because we have had some wacky winter weather, we haven't stashed away our sweaters and coats just yet. However, we have begun to fantasize about filling our closets with fun stuff for spring. Plus you know what they say about spring cleaning and all of that — which is really just code for "make room for new stuff."
This is where we are shopping in March:
Dallas designer Abi Ferrin recently opened her first retail store at West Village. Her collection features sexy and comfortable women's clothing for all ages, and Ferrin uses fair trade buttons from her Freedom Project in many of her designs. Shop by appointment only until the grand opening on March 26.
