Best of Boston

2008 Best Jeans, Women's, South


If it’s true the average American owns 8.3 pairs of jeans, that means the average American woman owns 7.3 pairs that don’t fit. Nicole Vaphiades thinks we can do better. Her boutique stocks labels like James and Chip & Pepper, as well as the requisite Saturday-night tops and tees, but the service/tough love is what sets Envy apart. Vaphiades can tell at a glance if you need the length of a Paige or the stretch of a SkinnyJeans. More important, she gives gentle but honest bottom-line assessments.
