Laura Vinroot Poole has done an amazing job bringing more couture labels to town. Sometimes I go there just to enjoy the eye candy. Upstairs is Poole Shop, with more casual offerings. I also go to Sloan, created by two sisters who have a great sense of style. They have trendy shoes, accessories, and clothes. For menswear, there's Tabor, which carries brands for men who like a fashion edge. My husband shops at Taylor Richards & Conger, which does made-to-measure and has European luxury lines such as Zegna and Cucinelli. For interiors, Abode, my friend Mary Miller's shop, is a bevy of fabulous art, furni - ture, and accessories. She carries my favorite perfume and candles, Maison Louis Marie. Circa Interiors & Antiques has an outstand- ing collection of antiques and new collections, all presented so beautifully. At Granville, I shop for Simon Pearce lamps and small Anne Neilson angel paintings. Browsing at Slate Interiors is like a treasure hunt; you never know what you will find, and they have well- priced rugs and art. For gifts and to find finishing touches for a project, B.D. Jeffries is my go-to. I also love the jewelry and leather goods. Charlotte is home to many great galleries. Soco Gallery has a wonderful collection of more avant garde artists. Owner Chandra Johnson is one of the most fashionable CAFÉ MONTE M A R C H /A P R I L 2 0 1 9 | 67 ABODE BECHTLER MUSEUM MINT MUSEUM
