Shop a Hot New York Neighborhood—From Home!

In our Fall/Winter 2008 issue, Girlfriend Getaways shot fall's hottest fashion trend—Western wear—in New York's coolest neighborhood: The Meatpacking District. But you don't have to travel to get the best it has to offer. Below, five shops with online boutiques.

Auto
803-805 Washington St., 212/229-2292, thisisauto.com
A nester's dream, this online boutique specializes in drool-worthy homewares, like a vintage-crystal chandelier by Justin Giunta, luxe Missoni bedding, and an assortment of equally delicious jewelry, wallets, clothing, and children's gifts.

The Earnest Sewn Co.
821 Washington St., 212/242-3414, earnestsewn.com
The "it" stop for discerning denim lovers, this high-end emporium's focus is cult jeans in cuts ranging from the "low rise super skinny" to the "cigarette leg" to the flowing "trouser."

Diane von Furstenberg
874 Washington St., 646/486-4800, dvf.com
Headquarters for scoring the signature wrap dress that has turned heads since the '70s, here you can shop the fall 2008 DVF collection, swimwear, and jewelry—or scour the online sale for chic threads at tempting prices.

Shelly Steffee
34 Gansevoort St., 917/408-0409, shellysteffee.com
Sculptural dresses and tops that seem as though they'd hang just so are the calling card of this Pennsylvania native. The names alone—like the Low Oval Armhole Dress With Slip—make it sound as if you're describing fine art, and, fittingly, these are masterpieces.

T Salon
459 W. 15th St., 212/243-2259, tsalon.com
This environmentally sustainable tea shop in Manhattan's Chelsea Market peddles high-end blends—like its Japanese Gen Mai Cha, sencha green tea with toasted rice and roasted barley—to celebrity fans like Heidi Klum.
