Cloak & Dagger, 441 East 9th Street (between 1st Street and Avenue A); 212-673-0500.
"The East Village is the first neighborhood I really came to know when I moved to the city. The people here are so crazy; I never feel out of place. Plus, it's filled with all these little streets, each with something to discover. Cloak & Dagger was one of my prouder, more personal finds. I was walking around one day in the neighborhood after getting a pedicure with my aunt, and was drawn in by how cute the storefront was. From that point, I’ve been a frequent customer and they remain a favorite because it's edited beautifully and really sells a full lifestyle. Not many stores I go into have that effect. Some of the pieces I'm wearing are from there, which I paired with these Timberland Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boots. I love that they're sleek and stylish, minus the pain of heels."
Timberland EARTHKEEPERS® Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boot, $210, available at Timberland.
