Health expert Dr. Jennifer Caudle shares her go-to fashion and beauty spots in Philly.
Dr. Jennifer Caudle.
You may recognize Dr. Jennifer Caudle as the telegenic face who has shared her medical knowledge everywhere from The Dr. Oz Show to CNN to CBS Philly. But when the family physician and assistant professor at Rowan University has a rare free moment, she knows exactly where to pamper herself. “I am such a spa girl,” Caudle says. “My favorite is Richel D’Ambra Spa and Salon at the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia (10 Avenue of the Arts, 215-523-8035). They have this lovely relaxation room with yummy treats where you can zone out before your massage.” As for post-spa beauty, M.A.C. (Macy’s, 1300 Market St., 215-241-9000) and Sephora (1714 Chestnut St., 215-563-6112) are her favored spots for lip glosses. “I have about 50 in my purse,” she laughs.
Dr. Jennifer Caudle heads to Duross & Langel for fragrant soaps and mineral-rich bath salts.
Once decompressed, Caudle heads to Nordstrom (King of Prussia Mall, 610-265-6111) for her shopping fix. “My favorite line there is 4 Collective,” she says. “The clothes are fabulous, kind of contemporary, but young-feeling.” Caudle also loves the department store for its footwear. “I have a shoe size that is hard to fit, and Nordstrom has a great selection,” she says.
When shopping for gifts for others, though, Caudle heads to local boutique Duross & Langel (117 S. 13th St., 215-592-7627), which stocks everything from face scrubs to soy candles. “I love their soaps,” she says. “They smell so delightful, and they’re beautiful.”
For exercise, Dr. Jennifer Caudle relishes long walks in Rittenhouse Square.
While on the road at speaking engagements, Caudle ensures her garments are kept safe and stylish with Louis Vuitton (King of Prussia Mall, 610-992-0392) pieces. “I carry the handbags every day and travel with the luggage,” she says. And though her hectic schedule leaves little time for a gym membership, Caudle gets her exercise by taking long walks through Washington Square and Rittenhouse Square. “I always stop when I’m [there] to enjoy the view, the sun, and whatever’s going on.”
