Laura Greenfield gained an adult following on Long Island for her two Emily Sky stores, but she always heard the same feedback: "My customers would tell me, 'You need to open a place like this for our daughters!'" she says. And so she did, right nextdoor to her Commack shop.
Indie, an eclectic spot that caters to girls and young women ages 13 to 28, is organized into zones to target different styles, with most clothing running for less than $100. The bohemian section is stocked with denim, printed maxi-skirts and flowing lace tops, the rocker section with fringe, biker-inspired jackets and studded accessories. There's casual-- cozy sweatpants and embellished sweatshirts, and dressy-- fun tops, polished blazers and mod party dresses. A wall of shoes offers studded and floral-print booties, and another is filled with everyday jewelry.
