Soaring ceilings, girly dressing rooms and clothing racks made from vintage doors make boutique Emily Grace feel like a hip loft apartment in Paris or Brooklyn. The work-to-weekend stock by names such as Vince, Rory Beca and Parker is edgy cool and includes a tightly curated selection of LBDs and colorful dresses: On a recent visit we found a black lace dress by Rebecca Taylor for $425. Need advice on what to wear on a hot date? Co-owner Morgan Feldman is an ace stylist.
