Habit

Tucked in the quaintest, coolest nook in the Bandywood Shops is a little boutique, Habit.

Owned by Shawn & Meg Blackney, Habit's decor alone is drool-worthy. Just based on the brilliant use of space and the furniture (a wonderful mix of West Elm zen and rustic country pieces) they use, it's clear that The Blackney's have great taste in design. The natural lighting from the large, pane window and the almost all-white interior makes the clothes really stand out. The moment you walk through the door, you're enveloped in fashion heaven - there's so much to choose from!

Obviously, the couple knows exactly where it's at (or at least needs to be) when it comes to what's hot right now. On one of their mannequins sits an outfit that was, just yesterday, featured in Shopbop dot com's latest "Lookbook."

The top is by Charlotte Ronson from her Spring '07 line, and I was pleasantly, but not overly, surprised that they had it already sitting out. Can we say "ahead of the game?" I believe we can.

Other designers available include C&C California, pretty under-things from Eberjey, Hudson jeans, loveliness from Lauren Moffatt, Development, Wenlan Chia, Susana Monaco ... just to name a few! And there's plenty more plus their prices certainly are not outrageous! OOH! And, and: Habit is having a massive sale right now (Paper Denim for $50? Mother may I!) to make way for new lines for the new year. I can't wait to see what else they bring in!

Count on their good eye for style and know that the clothes they carry are not freakishly trendy and anything you buy now will last a long time.

Habit is at 2209 Bandywood Drive in Green Hills or online at Habit Boutique dot com!
