Now Open: Milly Boutique

By: TJ Kennedy

Even the misty rain couldn’t keep us away from checking out the new Milly boutique on Madison Avenue at 73rd Street. Michelle "Milly" Smith has officially stocked the former Sharper Image store with her feminine-chic frocks, which just gives us another good reason to never leave Madison Avenue.

This entices shoppers with a bright and colorful window display. Indise, vibrant vintage-inspired print maxi dresses line the walls and bold statement jewelry cover the surfaces. The handbags were mostly orange and black and are perfect weekend getaway styles. Signature Milly mini dresses were in full supply. There were only a few styles in the limited swimwear section, but these select pieces were simple and unique, following the bold colors of the rest of the collection.

Adjacent to swimwear, is an adorable kids corner full of printed dresses and striped tops. Now Upper East Side moms and their chic toddlers can perfectly coordinate.

This new addition is just what the Madison Avenue retail scene ordered-- there's always room for Sharper Image in the anywhere USA subruban mall.
