Fashion: Are you looking for a little more rock and roll meets cool casual when it comes to your luxury apparel? Then check out Manhattan's TikaBou, an environmentally aware boutique that carries designer styles.
TikaBou is not for the fashionably fearful, but for the fashionably forward that like to look urban and edgy. TikaBou carries Ed Hardy, the famous luxury line inspired by tattoos and motorcycles, as well as a husband and wife's line, VOOM, which can best be described at classy clubwear for urban-dwellers. TkaBou also has a smattering of outfits for pets, including humorously labeled t-shirts "bitch" and "stud."
If you're one of those that believes accessories can get you further, check out the selection of Onna Erlich's mini-clutches, which the site insists won't be around for long, once they are featured in InSyle Magazine. And the boutique's environmentally friendly policy spills over into their extensive offerings of Envirosax, which negate using plastic or paper at the grocery store or can be used as simple arm decoration.
If you want your little one to stand out and be noticed, look at their selection of baby clothes and accessories, which are an edgier take on the usual, "mommy loves me" onesies seen on infants since the dawn of time.
Rock and roll doesn't stop at apparel at TikaBou, it goes into the dining room on plates decorated with skulls and other uniquely patterned dining sets.
TikaBou's site may not be as luxurious as its products, but the items it carries pack quite a punch.
