Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: We're not sure who originated the phrase "She'd look good in a potato sack," but some days we wish we were so lucky. If only everyone could sport a shapeless garment without worry that she would, instead, look like a sack of potatoes. Thankfully, local designer Joy Li has a flair for molding flowing pieces into ones that also flatter, as exemplified by her flora- and fauna-adorned Geisha top with bell sleeves and a scoop back.

Where: Studio Joy Li

Cost: $268
