Kate Spade

Conservative Cape Cod totes, clutches, and shoulder strap bags done in bold stripes, patterns, and polka dots. Traditional heels ideal for weekend dress-up days and strolling around the office. Stationery and home accoutrements to flaunt Kate Spade lifestyle, reminiscent of ‘50s societal ideals—perfect mother, hostess, wife, woman.

DryBar

California phenom makes a home on the UES, where fashionable chicks can slap down a pair of twenties in exchange for fashion-model-quality locks. DryBar’s secret is that it keeps it simple. No cuts, no coloring, no aromatherapy (we hope), just washes and blowouts and you’re on your way to the bars and restaurants just a few stilettoed steps away. They call it a “Blow Dry Bar,” but there’s no booze, so bring your cosmo-filled thermos and get glam. That you’ll walk out with cash to spare is a fabulous bonus.

Vince

Relaxed and unfussy, Vince has perfected the put-together-without-trying approach to fashion. Denim and blazers in all-neutral tones to complete the look. Gals go for leather leggings and boy-sized T’s, and boys will have to make do with gawking: it’s womens only on the Upper East Side.

Anthropologie

Style hub for the sophisticated young woman. Most mature branch of the Urban Outfitters empire brings rural charm to retro looks. Floral patterns and costume jewelry well-matched to rustic home accents: pick up a frock and comfy sheets to match. Good place for the finishing touches on your first or second post-dorm abode.

Denim Habit

Strives to make shopping for jeans a more civilized experience, ditching the piles and clutter for clean lines and open spaces. Holy order of denim brands, including DL1961, Current/Elliott, Henry & Belle, and Vintage Resolution. Pieces by Halston Heritage, House of Harlow, and Missoni to complete your look. Addicts welcome.

Lululemon

Cult yogawear chain complete with creepy manifesto (“children are the orgasm of life”) and rabid “ambassadors,” willing to drop $100 on pair of roll-top yoga pants. Racerback tanks in eye-popping hues, butt-hugging cropped leggings the day uniform of the unemployed mom with two nannies. Moisture-wicking Lulu socks and “Technithongs.” Stores aim to be more inspirational community center than retail outlet; host free Sunday yoga, often followed by gratis light breakfast. Eat at your own risk.

A dozen chairs for cuts and styles. Waxing, eyebrows and eyelashes, medi/pedi among host of one-stop beauty services. Yes, you’ll pay for the privileges, although nothing’s out of line for this rarefied address.
