ShopTalk: Brand New at The Fashion Mall
317-569-1431; Saks wing, first floor
If the preppy style and monogram overload remind you of Tory Burch, that’s because C Wonder is owned by the designer’s ex-husband. Jeans run $88 for solid colors, which have names like Tequila and Clementine, and $128 for on-trend prints.
FOR BRUNCH: Reversible leather belt, $38 to $48, with an enamel initial buckle, $38
317-708-0236; Saks wing, first floor
Like a Coach store with more color, this boutique avoids neutral territory. Perfect examples: gumdrop stud earrings in 12 hues and rainbow-glitter stilettos with a bow detail. On the simpler side, dark-wash jeans cost $198.
FOR PARTIES: Popsicle-shaped coin purses, $78
317-379-0938; Saks wing, first floor
The look here is California cowboy: country concert–worthy jeans, belts, and plaid button-downs for men and women, plus colorful board shorts, polos, and graphic tees. The signature denims range from $170 to $375, in every style God created.
FOR WEEKENDS: Glitz & Glam “Becky” jeans with Swarovski crystal buttons, $253
317-249-2170; Nordstrom wing, first floor
Donna Karan’s sexy alter ego would wear this label’s boldly printed dresses, chic aviators, and bright-but-minimalist jewelry. Floral-print skinny jeans ring in at $125, and the spacious dressing rooms are decked out in zebra-print upholstery and portraits of style icons, such as Jackie O.
FOR VACATION: MK-monogrammed neoprene tennis-racquet case, $138
317-218-7560; Saks wing, first floor
These Prada-esque, office-appropriate shoes and handbags are made in Spain. Angelina Jolie and Emma Stone order the leather-and-suede “550” boot ($598) in multiple colors.
FOR WORK: “Gladiator” sandal, $398, seen on Kate Moss
317-218-4985; bridge, second floor
Already home to Lululemon and Athleta, The Fashion Mall hit the yoga-wear trifecta with the addition of Lucy. It offers seven cuts and styles of pants ($79 and up), plus a ridiculously soft racerback tank you could wear around town with skinny jeans and heels.
FOR THE GYM: Suede-like Manduka towels, $19 to $42
