Every New York City boutique with a laid-back bent has a rack of striped Ace & Jig sundresses, or a mannequin dressed in Creatures of Comforts' pom-pom-topped dirndl skirt right now. But, unlike their contemporaries, Personnel skipped those dresses and went straight for the brand's slouchy jumpsuits. And that skirt? The West Village shop bought it in marigold—not black or white.

"We just try to find stuff that is unique and unique to this neighborhood. I like to think we buy in a special way," store co-owner Kristi Paras says. This season, that translates to prints—think paint-splattered men's button-downs, bamboo-patterned Reality Studio tunics, and tees stamped with jumbo polka dots and ocean waves.

We can't promise that any of these finds will make an appearance at the boutique's first-ever basement sale this week, but we'll keep our fingers crossed.
