A self-described “accidental consultant,” she helped Bliss Spa, Gilt Groupe and Toms Shoes with strategic marketing before opening Story, an unconventional boutique in West Chelsea. Designed to be like a magazine, Story’s theme changes every four to eight weeks, with the interior and merchandise getting a complete overhaul.

The Web sites Cool Hunting and New York Mouth are among the sponsors for New York Story. Cool Hunting also helped curate the selection.
