Steven Alan has a pretty little shop on my almost daily walking route through the West Village and every time I pass the storefront I feel a little pang of want for what they've got. When I was in a wardrobe rut, a perfectly well meaning friend suggested I peruse the boutique and pick up some of the super-cute shirtdresses they are known for. That suggestion got me into the store, and the $265 price tags hanging off of the indeed super-cute shirt dresses started my unrequited love affair with the window. I would leave my hot breath on the glass a few days a week and keep walking. But recently, on a masochistic whim I went into the store and discovered that there were deep price cuts on most of the cute stuff. Springy shirtdresses weren't on the menu, but great coats were and they were 70% off.
