100 Stanton St., New York, NY (Stanton & East Houston Sts.)
Showing up to a party wearing the same outfit as another girl? This faux pas never happens to those who shop at Pixie Market. In the heart of NYC’s newest retail hotspot, the Lower East Side, lays this treasure trove of unusual goodies wherein young owners Gaelle Drevet and Magda Pietrobelli have been known to discover obscure designers by trolling MySpace pages. Their retail result is a unique blend of barely-known brands like Orphan Age, Finders Keep, Liquorish, Maria Bonita Extra and Farahbella, all showcased in a cozy Stanton Street boutique. Calling cards include foreign-made apparel, hand-made jewelry, and their own private shoe line called Maud. Sequined hot pants, button-down capes, fringe trimmed-t-shirt dresses are the kind of things you’ll add to your wardrobe here, as well as unquantifiable confidence in your one-of-a-kind identity.
