Surrounded by beautiful buys from 9 to 5, the everyday life of a Philly boutique owner is a practice in self-restraint. In Gimme Gimme, we ask a shopkeep: Which currently-in-stock item are you seriously tempted to buy for yourself?
One of Philly's top luxury retailers, Adresse is no stranger to designer labels, so it's a wonder that Stefanie Lutzo resists turning her Locust Street boutique into her own, personal walk-in closet. Kudos aside, Lutzo confides that it's new pieces from American designer Lela Rose that are really testing her willpower, and a leather handbag by Proenza Schouler is whispering, "Stefffannnieeeeee..." See what's tempting Lutzo, after the jump.
