Milk and Honey boutique opens in Chinatown

Land of Plenty

Milk & Honey There’s an economic crisis in your wallet.

Plans to send your style stock soaring by investing in key pieces crashed when the bottom fell out of the leather hot pants/designer trucker hat/harem pants market.

You’re staring at two options: tighten last season’s belt for a few more months or troll the discount stores for pieces that are literally a dime a dozen.

Or ease your dry spell with a trip to the land of Milk & Honey.

Milk & Honey Former law firm co-workers and fashion-loving friends Patricia Chang and Christine George opened their dream shop this weekend with racks full of finds for under $100.

Lined up against the colorful orange, grey, and white striped walls you’ll find office appropriate Love Julian dresses with feminine ruched shoulders, jewel-toned October Sky blouses and mm couture dresses.

Add an edge with rings and patterned bangles from Luv Low, a Milk & Honey exclusive in Hawaii, or House of Harlow’s evil eye headdresses, necklaces, and chevron jewelry. Then pack it all up in a JJ Winter’s mini clutch and step out in Report platform sandals. Milk & Honey

Tokyomilk Dark beauty products just arrived (yesterday) and lingerie lines are soon to follow.

Meaning you won’t have to pass the bucks explaining why you're still last season’s snafus.

And that's how you make dollars and sense.
