Savvy likes to think of herself as a “when in Rome” kind of gal, the sort who can move seamlessly between downtown and uptown. How exciting that two of her favorite shops share that sentiment. Both Handbags in the City and Holly G have opened second locations in Mount Washington, giving those who dread crossing Cold Spring Lane the same chance to scoop up to their simply divine stock. Handbags in the City (5614 Newbury St., 410-601-0096) features names like Badgley Mischka, Botkier, Juicy Couture as well as new-to- them Lambertson Truex and Be & D. The uptown store will also sell shoes, outerwear, belts and scarves. Grab your Starbucks then pop next door to Holly G (Mount Washington Mill, The Wheel House, 410-433-3389). Load up on lingerie by Only Hearts, Kasil denim, a great jacket by Dace or a terrific trench from Eva Franco. Savvy picked up a dozen of the wide, flat travel candles by Bluewick, so perfect for packing.
