Forty Five Ten
When you want flashy labels that prove you’re a country club member, visit any department store. When you’re a die-hard fashion lover, looking for tougher-to-find lines and a highly edited mix, head to this McKinney Avenue jewel, which even stocks some exclusive lines. Even heavy-hitting designers love the shop. Forty Five Ten's 10th anniversary party included guests Thakoon, Narciso Rodriguez, and Ippolita. If the big-ticket prices are too off-the-charts for you—and they often can be—you can still be a part of the club by having lunch at The T Room, which is hands-down the most chic watering hole in the city. This little café buzzes daily with Birkin bag-carrying women and their polished friends.
