Stephanie's, Luxury Fashion & Home Boutique, Last-Minute Gift Picks

It began as a small design studio and retail concept in 1999, and since then has evolved into a premier lifestyle boutique, offering a luxury shopping experience that combines both fashion and home design — an experience not usually found outside New York or L.A.

Ladies, meet Stephanie’s.

Here, you’ll find exclusive designer labels, including Rag & Bone, Majestic T’s, Del Toro Shoes, NSF, Raquel Allegra, Equipment, Current Elliot, Chaser, Mother Denim and Designer’s Guild — a collection shoppers would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the Valley.

“I found myself doing most of my shopping while I was out of town because there really wasn’t a place here to go for advanced, contemporary women’s clothing,” says Owner Stephanie Inzalaco. “Stephanie’s fills the void in the Scottsdale market by providing the types of fashion lines previously only found in New York and L.A.”

One of the exclusive lines Stephanie’s carries is IRO, a Paris-based designer — and Inzalaco’s personal favorite.

“The brand merges an edgy street vibe with classic French style for a look that is laid-back and feminine,” she says. “Their boyish blazers are always one of the most coveted and favorite pieces in my closet. IRO is almost impossible to find anywhere else in the Valley.”

Inzalaco says the boutique caters to women who want unique pieces, high-quality basics and transitional clothing that can easily go from day to night and can work with every season. “Our clients enjoy cutting-edge fashion but don’t want to be too trendy.”

As for Inzalaco’s style?

“I definitely have more of a street style,” she says. “It’s a little edgy but put together, casual with a wear-anywhere appeal.”

“This pajama set includes an oversized top and wide-legged drawstring pants. As an extra touch of luxury, the set comes packaged in a matching silk envelope. Anyone who knows Equipment will know that this is a three-for-one — the top can be worn day or night paired with denim, and the pants go great with a t-shirt and flats.”
