What smart women do: vote, read, merge graciously, and dress for the occasion. They also open boutiques in St. Paul’s Highland Park—still redolent of the longtime and long-gone house of Power’s—and they stock the shelves with the latest (hot designers such as Hazel, Anac, and Jelessy) and greatest (little black Nicole Miller cocktail dresses and indispensable Cyrus knitwear that’s getting harder and harder to ï¬nd).

Owner Stephanie Morrissey had her kicks on the East Coast and then was kind enough to migrate back to our neck of the woods. So if your fall shopping trip to NYC fell through, fret not, Sunshine—you can still get your cool on in leather whipstitched into submission by Mackage, or a lush cowl-neck from Autumn Cashmere (Mom will wonder how you afford it; your niece will borrow it when you’re not looking).

Morrissey wisely keeps track of her clients, noting who got what to wear to which party, so there’s no danger of your hot Nougat outfit looking back at you from the hostess. So slip into your in-the-know Paper Denim & Cloth jeans and make the pilgrimage. Because smart women also know that Mecca lies east. Of the Mississippi.
