Best Women’s Accessories

  Critics, upstate: The reason Pat Halfpenny always looks so good is because, in addition to getting her hair done at Michael Christopher Salon and Spa, she also scores fabulous jewelry at its boutique. “It’s a fun atmosphere,” she says, “and Michael Christopher has the best selection of reasonably priced jewelry and purses in the area.” (2006 Pennsylvania Ave., Wilmington, 658-0842)
  Critics, downstate: Smith gushes about Maxine’s New York Fashions for two reasons: the stylish clothes and one-of-a-kind accessories. “If you dare to be different, this is where you go,” says S. Renee Smith, a motivational speaker from Dover. “If you want big, gaudy jewelry because you’re a tall woman, you can go there and get big, gaudy jewelry.” Among other items, Smith touts Maxine’s selection of hats, shawls and handbags. “As an image consultant, I ask people, ‘Who are you? What is your style?’ At Maxine’s, you can go in, ask that and find the answer.” (125A W. Loockerman St., Dover, 678-9958)
