Tucked away on the corner on 18th and Sansom sits one of my favorite stores in all of Rittenhouse Square. Leehe Fai is a must-stop for local fashionistas and visiting celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez!
Part of the allure of this beautifully-edited boutique is the owner herself, Leehe Fai Goldfarb. Although she doesn’t come from a traditional fashion background, she quickly mastered the art of buying and merchandising, “I have always had an eye for fashion and fine things,” says Goldfarb and her style is evident in every part of the store. From the beautifully-appointed jewelry case, to her extensive selection of designer denim and the perfect mix of casual and dressier items, you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for!
Fai's store caters to it’s shop-a-holic clientele by offering selective and unique brands, but it also caters to their partners, “our store is totally ‘boyfriend friendly’…we provide comfortable seating, magazines and we even have Game Boys for the guys!” jokes Fai.
And you won’t find any fashion victims in her store! Leehe is careful to stay on top of the latest fashions, but she’s not a slave to trends. This season, Fai says it’s all about the dress, “whether you opt for a maxi style, an asymmetrical one or something sexy and tailored, this summer you can’t go wrong in one!”
And if you’re wondering what NOT to wear, Fai says to pass on anything Tie-Dye and Uggs!
Next time you stop in, don’t forget to mention “CheapChicas” to save 20% on jeans by the hottest names in denim like Rock and Republic, True Religion and James Jeans…and why not pick up a great accessory while you’re at it? Those are now 20% off too!
