My Eight Favorite Boutiques Anywhere, Shoppable at Home

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, 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.

Some people visit museums when they travel to other cities; some hit the streets for a run or hop on a bike; still others sample the local cuisine. Me, I shop. Not just because of a pressing desire to acquire more stuff—although I can not lie, there's certainly that—but because I always find it inspiring to see how women in different places interpret style for themselves. What follows is a rundown of stores I've been to in other cities, and continue to romance from afar via ecommerce; there are a couple thrown in that I've only ever visited digitally, but my affection for them burns just as strong. —Kim France
