“It totally peeves us when we show up to a friend’s birthday party sporting the same damn Zara dress as every other
chick. Once we stumbled into Babel Fair (260 Elizabeth St between E Houston and Prince Sts; 646-360-3685, babelfair.com), we found the answer to our problem: Owner Erica Kiang sources appropriately priced, one-of-a-kind threads ($50-$400) from around the globe. On a recent trip, we lusted after a plaid shift dress from Denmark ($149), a colorful pair of structural strappy heels from Taiwan ($269), and an embroidered tunic from Mexico ($149)–perfect for throwing over bathing suits when frying our bods in Central Park.”
