Located in the heart of Old Town, Handle With Care is stocked with chic and hip labels such as Shoshanna, Trina Turk and Halston Heritage. Stylish cashmere sweaters by Autumn Cashmere and Minnie Rose Cashmere are must-haves for the winter. For casual weekends, pair a Michael Stars t-shirt with J Brand jeans. And the jewelry – OH MY – there are lots and lots of options that will leave you dizzy. Still looking for that unique and sexy dress for New Year’s Eve? The decision will be a difficult one if you shop here. There are too many dresses and not enough time. The boutique caters mostly to women age 20-40 and offers tasteful selections. Owner Brinton Coxe always looks like she stepped out of a magazine with her eye for fashion.
