The latest crop of clothing and accessories to invade the city is set to excite shoppers across the board. For day, there's Charlie Jade, now available at Blush. According to owner Sarah King, the playful, whimsical line is composed of "darling dresses, blouses and rompers for the girl who loves prints" (110 N. Clay Ave., Kirkwood, 314.965.4411).

Sleek frocks with plunging necklines are among the brand's signatures (9660 Clayton Road, Clayton, 314.997.0124).
For the weekend, browse 10denza's recently introduced Shakuhachi pieces; thanks to exquisite tailoring and standout motifs, any of the girly-Bohemian separates would be perfect for a day of shopping or dinner with friends (44 Maryland Plaza, Central West End, 314.361.1010). Shoppers will also want to check out Splash's shoe display; the Clayton-based boutique has stocked up on "jelly"-like wedges by iconic Melissa that will look perfect poolside (8811 Ladue Road, Ladue, 314.721.6442).
