We tagged along after our glamorous Jennifer, hitting some of our favorite
downtown boutiques, to give you a look at the kind of thing we like for spring.
Selima Bond 07 in NoHo (that's 7 Bond St. (212) 677-8487). This
shop is a real scene: very hip, very French, very high-energy. The sales help
is eager to assist you, and help you accessorize an outfit. They don't just have
clothes at Bond 07, they have a tremendous selection of bags, jewelry, shoes, hats,
eyewear, and they sell some fragrances and beauty products. It's a lovely space; a
lovely place to be in.
