10 Local Boutiques To Shop Online

Magdalena Becker | June 22, 2020 | Style & Beauty


1. Boyds Philadelphia

You can still shop till you drop at Boyds with its giveback initiative. The family retailer is donating 10% of all sales to Jefferson’s COVID-19 Better Together Fund, which provides resources to employees and students on the front lines of the pandemic. Customers will also receive 10% off their online order and gift card purchases, as well as complimentary shipping and returns. 1818 Chestnut St., 215.564.9000

2. NINObrand

Owner Bela Shehu’s cool-girl vibe is prevalent throughout all of her NINObrand pieces—our favorite is the Liam double-breasted black dress ($620). While you can’t schedule a personal styling appointment or stop into the Rittenhouse brick-and-mortar, Shehu is offering a special sale for all things stylish: Buy a $1,000 gift card for only $500 and get your closet ready for your post-social distancing debut. 333 S. 20th St., 267.761.9388


From blue palm-patterned skirts to woven sandals, DFTI is stocked with all of your summer essentials. New favorites include the Waikiki romper ($65) and Jalapeno jumpsuit ($70), along with a plethora of sunning hats to keep you shaded. The boutique stocks new items weekly both in store and online, so you’ll never see the same piece twice. 2032 Chestnut St., 267.758.6790


LAGOS Caviar pieces are the perfect complement to any occasion—even working from home. Browse the website and add a bit of sparkle to your new daily routine, whether it be from the classic collection or new blue and gold accessories; or stock up on layerworthy essentials for the warmer months. 1735 Walnut St., 215.567.0770

5. Tesoro Design

Founder and owner Brit Reed is dedicated to doing whatever she can to assist those in need.

Ethan Nguyen’s South Street boutique knows what it means to do good: In fact, it’s its mission as 5% of the store’s annual profits are donated toward those fighting for children’s rights, hunger relief and more.
