The folks over at J.Crew continue to tweak their retail format; last week, they opened a 500-square-foot accessories boutique within their Soho store at 99 Prince Street. "Among the bestsellers so far: strappy snakeskin and suede sandals, priced $298; leather ballet flats with neon trim, $148; chandelier-style earrings, $75, and antique bracelets with grosgrain bows, $95."
