Lucky Magazine Salutes Philadelphia

Lucky Magazine rated Philadelphia as one of the best places in the country to shop in its November annual Shopping Awards issue. Yes, you shopping elitists, it's true; so the next time you even think about taking the bus north for a shopping spree, think about perusing your own backyard first. But I digress. Our up-and-coming fashion city is in the same company as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston and of course, New York. The editors at Lucky picked Petulia's Folly, located at 1710-12 Sansom Street, as one of best boutiques in the country. Writer, Carrie Denny hailed the store's impressive collection of contemporary designers including : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Hanii Y and Nicholas K. Congratulations! Are there any Petulia's Folly fans out there?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
