At Whim our goal is simple: to see our customers take pleasure from their purchases. We strive to make our customers feel stylish, confident, beautiful and unique. We truly care how our clothes and accessories make you feel. We understand our customers’ lifestyles, we listen to our customers’ needs and cater to what our customers crave. We offer guidance and support for a painless, seamless and enjoyable shopping experience.

We have a very extensive, but well-edited assortment of apparel, jewelry, handbags, accessories and shoes. We love curating of the moment, on-trend, unique, comfortable, playful, and affordable items-and receive new pieces daily.

We give our customers a reason to shop. We love being a local store. It is an honor to be part of the communities where our stores live, and we encourage those near and far to visit. Our online store is an extension of this philosophy — we pride ourselves on our local roots while offering the means to visit us online & wherever you may be. Everything at Whim is under $100 except for a few exceptions. Whim started with one location in 2017 in Mount Kisco, Darien is our 5th store after Bronxville, Stamford and Ridgefield.
