Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Philadelphia Style's Kristin Detterline spends most of her time sharing info about the Philly shops she thinks you will like, but the editor-in-chief can't help but be partial to a few personal favorites. This fashion editor has her pre-vacation shopping routine down to a science.

Here, Detterline takes a breather from working on Philadelphia Style's winter issue—hitting newsstands next month—to reveal the seven shops she always hits up before taking off on her next jet-setting adventure.
