Beacon Hill

› Designer Michael Kors once sought out Vintage Taste on a visit to Boston, says owner Heli Labadini — he saw the website and stopped in. That was when it occupied an obscure 10-by-12-foot space in Downtown Crossing. Doubtless Kors would be pleased with the new, bigger Charles Street digs — all the better for showing off the very high-end, mostly consigned pieces. Chanel and Akris jackets, some still with tags, sell for $400 to $1,200; luscious Hermes scarves and Gucci bags go for a fraction of their original prices. There are new pieces as well, including handbags from — you guessed it — Michael Kors. Vintage Taste 103 Charles Street, Boston, 617-367-9191, vintagetasteheli.com



› Men who mourned the loss of Peter Mark in Newburyport last August will be thrilled to find its spirit lives on inside men’s emporium Giblees. Peter Murphy, who owned the shuttered location and is now a Giblees buyer, stocks the store-in-a-store Modern Heritage by Giblees with trend-conscious Stitch’s and Fidelity denim, soft James Perse button-downs, and younger, edgy Stone Rose and Boss Orange sport coats, capturing the casual-yet-classy feel that Peter Mark epitomized. Prices are a bit lower than the rest of the store. Modern Heritage by Giblees 85 Andover Street, Danvers, 978-774-4080, giblees.com

› Impulse by Adamas Fine Jewelry — an offshoot of brother-and-sister team Anto Aboyan and Veronica Sagherian’s Newton store — has a distinct gallery feel. Delicate necklaces adorned with semiprecious stones and horn bangles studded with Swarovski crystals sparkle in gently lighted cases lining the walls. Resin jewelry in mandarin orange, golden yellow, and other bold hues beckons from shelves. Designs from the owners, including chic leather-cord bracelets with gold and diamond accents, round out the selection. Impulse by Adamas Fine Jewelry 180 Linden Street, Wellesley, 781-416-1800, trustyourimpulse.com

Back Bay

› Lou Lou, an East Coast chain with a new shop on Newbury Street, brims with accessories perfect for adding flair: chunky bib necklaces (some priced at just $25) and cocktail rings, brightly colored clutches, floral scarves. Along with the store’s own line, there are pieces from rough-meets-delicate jewelry label Chan Luu, as well as always-fun Orla Kiely and Hobo handbags. Vegetarians and the splurge-averse will appreciate the faux-leather bags, which look more dear than their $45-to-$65 prices. Lou Lou 222A Newbury Street, Boston, 857-265-3952, loulouboutiques.com
