Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
We really hate goodbyes. Especially when we're saying so long to one of our favorite shopping haunts, and a perennial member of our Top 38. Sometimes, though, you just have to put on your Big Girl jeans and do the right thing.
OK, here goes... goodbye, La Boutique. Goodbye, storeowner Carole Harari. After six years as our go-to spot for très chic Swiss fashions (and super-cool parties), you'll be sorely missed.
The shop closed earlier this month. No word yet on what, or who, will be moving into the beautiful gallery-like space at 414 Jackson Street, in Jackson Square.
