Little girl clothing gets grown-up.. The Scene Like an illustration from "Eloise," Nanette Lepore's charming Soho shop is filled with old New York touches. A cluster of antique enamel chandeliers dangle from the ceiling; playful rhinestone jewelry is displayed in vintage birdcages; and the white walls are dotted with pink-tinged murals of cartoon flowers. The sales staff is as excited about the merchandise as the clientele.
The Goods Remember the dress you dreamed of as a little girl? Maybe it was pink silk, dotted with tiny white flowers, with a nipped waist and a flared skirt? Nanette Lepore makes that dream dress, in a hundred different variations--white eyelet for summer, brilliant orange flapper dresses for winter--for reasonable prices and in sumptuous fabrics. Also covetable: Smartly cut pants, dainty sweaters, Victorian blouses and button-front skirts.
