Every Wednesday, The FADER Style team asks employees and employers at our favorite shops around the world what their most cherished in-store item is at that exact moment. This week, we talked with smart staffers at New York City's Opening Ceremony and Aloha Rag.

Before we could even process these Alexander Wang shoes into our POS they were nearly all sold. I am not one for heels, but these are just so much more; the stripper platform, the fringe and piercings, your man won't mind you putting down your card and paying your half of the rent late. They're the perfect pieces to add to your collection and hold on to forever. In the seasons when they're not in style you can use them as door stops. Fashion and function!

My favorite item in the store this week is from a new line from Japan that we started carrying this season called Aula Aila. We just received their S/S 09 line two days ago and I already know this one piece black jumper is going to be MINE! They way the stretch jersey top blends with the polyester shorts is amazing. It's a perfect match, and an even more perfect match for summer!
