Anyone shopping in Soho knows theyre in for a tour of the hottest and finest in designusually with price tags to match. Thats why a stop into Privileged, Jennifer Ondyaks recently opened boutique on Thompson Street, makes you feel just that way. Throughout the chic space, countless gold and silver clutches, bangles and earrings glitter like fireflies above racks of feminine tops and dresses from small and local designers selected by Ondyak for their creativity, wearability and value. Strapless silk cocktail numbers by Wendy Katlen and peacock-print blouses by Julie Brown hang beside soft tees, elegant jersey wraps and sweatshirt dresses by Zoe, Tart and Beautiful People. The contemporary aesthetic carries into the modest shoe selection (which includes some of affordable favorite Dolce Vitas more adventurous designs) and the diverse collection of handbags. Privileged emphasizes classic designs with a bit of of-the-moment playfulnessand the best part is that the razor-thin crocodile evening bags, saddlebag-style hobos with round pockets and dangling tassels, and fun canvas totes wont cost nearly as much as one would expect, since prices average between $100 and $200. Gold and brown python belts, Bark Jacobs shoe-shaped dog toys, vanilla ice-cream bath balls, and jumbo gem hair barrettes quench fashion cravings while leaving enough cash for a pedicure. This Manhattan treasure is truly priceless. And thanks to the online shop, non-Manhattanites can enjoy the gift as well.
