14 Chic Shots Of The New 'Tique You Must Hit ASAP — Plus Posh Partygoers!

Don't get it twisted — we've always been big fans of Beckley boutique — the curation is both quirky and classic, and you'll never spot something hanging from its racks that doesn't emanate "upscale." But, now that proprietress Melissa Akkaway's secured some less-isolated real estate (we're not exactly shopping with Jeff Lewis at the PDC or balling at Balenciaga just yet), the store has morphed from an every-now-and-then flyby to our retail rendition of Cheers!
To consecrate the new West Third Street digs, a party of epic proportions was in order, and the shop gals pulled out all the stops with eyebrow touch-ups and bold-lip applications by Kristie Streicher Beauty Bar, HIPPxRGB "Nude Nail Consultations" by Jenna Hipp, and mini-manis by celebrity nail stylist Stephanie Stone. While guests shopped (20% of proceeds were donated to American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief), sipped, and primped, you better believe we were there to capture all the action. Click through for our account of the opening-night festivities, and plan a trip there this weekend — Saturday-outing outfit inspiration included!
