Carolina ladies flock to Capi­tol when it’s time to gear up for any note­wor­thy event or fancy soirée. With ex­quis­ite de­signs by Lan­vin, Os­car de la Renta and Dries Van Noten, who can blame them? Open M-Sa 10 am-6 pm. www.capi­tolchar­lotte.com 4010 Sharon Road, 704.366.0388. Map 1, D9


The charm­ing bou­tique is packed with de­light­ful de­signs, an up­beat at­mos­phere and an un­beat­able ex­pe­ri­ence thanks to the many stylists on hand ready to help cus­tomers find per­fect at­tire to suit their per­son­al­ity. www.claird­eluneshop.com 1820 South Blvd., 704.582.3313.


The place to pick up cute dresses, skirts, and tops at in­ex­pen­sive prices (most are less than $100) also stocks graphic tees and denim from Rock & Repub­lic and True Re­li­gion. But it’s K-La’s ac­ces­sory se­lec­tion— ban­gles, bracelets, cock­tail rings, and sun­glasses—and fab­u­lous de­signer knock­offs (Ba­len­ci­aga, any­one?) that makes this a great place to stock up on wardrobe sta­ples. Open M-Sa 10 am-7 pm, Su noon-6 pm. www.shop­kla.com 4123 Park Road, 704.523.2017; 9816B Rea Road, 704.752.3834.


If you’re look­ing for the lat­est “in” item, then Mon­kee’s is the place to find it, as they pride them­selves on stock­ing the new­est got­ta­have cloth­ing, shoes, and ac­ces­sories. Find dresses from BCBG, and cloth­ing from Pucci, La­coste, and Marc Ja­cobs or try on a pair of Steve Mad­den or Stu­art Weitz­man stilet­tos.
