The 5 Most Stylish Shop Girls And Boys In Miami

Thanks to that little thing we call the world wide web, we can online shop for just about anything we want at any time we want. As even more local boutiques set up e-commerce sites, swiping a credit card for hard-to-find Suno sundresses or Tabitha Simmons sandals doesn't require you to take those PJs off. But no online boutique, no matter how well designed, can compete with the energy of a buzzy brick-and-mortar. Besides standout architecture, crystals glasses of champagne (The Webster, we're talking to you), and, well, the psychical experience of seeing how something fits, it's the store employees that make non-virtual browsing so much better. To get you out of the house, we scouted Miami's five most fashionable, super-helpful, and just downright cool employees. Not only are we telling you where to find these chic kids, we got them to spill the stuff on all their style secrets. Maybe if you're extra nice, they'll let you in on that employee discount.
