As businesses keep moving in, removing the real estate signs from the window, Rittenhouse Row defines a new style of luxury for Philadelphians. 2012 was the year of rehabilitation for a part of town that has been pushing to be more than a walk through of random stores, but a place to past time and indulge. Many stores like Intermix and Athleta cater to the young career-oriented philadelphian, as well as new spas and shoe stores for the leisurely. Bring in the new year right by spicing up your outfit with something fun, costumeish, or elegant. Whether you’re heading to a gala, bar-hopping, or relaxing at a loft party.
