    Too Hot to Handle

    Handle With Care Boutique on Wells Street in Old Town was already a winner in our eyes.

    Slews of dresses, the perfect assortment of gifts and a come-hither selection of baubles to choose from always had us drooling at the door.  But recently, the boutique has gotten just a little bit hotter, and it has nothing to do with the weather outside. Owner Brinton Coxe has gone to town since taking over the store last summer, bringing in the latest and greatest designers for her chic little boutique.  

    New highlights include House of Harlow jewelry that will come in August (you know the line- chunky, unique pieces created by Nicole Richie herself and named after her baby girl Harlow), Madison Marcus and Current Elliot Denim, to name a few.
    But the news that made us topple over in our Louboutins was the addition of one-of-a-kind pieces by designer Mara Hoffman and some oh-so-coveted Tibi dresses . Both lines have a huge celebrity following at the moment, and we can see why.  Meagan Fox was recently seen sporting a Mara Hoffman dress at a premiere, Kim Kardashian has frolicked around in her frocks as well. Nicki Hilton has been a long-time fan of Tibi's line, but that's only the beginning; the list goes on and on.
