Persa Street fashion boutiques Cakewalk Style Shop and Pomp and Circumstance are growing up: the stylish neighbors, who became fast friends on Persa Street, have moved to larger digs at the corner of Persa and Westheimer. Owners Jennifer Grigsby and Gina Cartwright (Cakewalk) and Marie Earthman (Pomp and Circumstance) complement one another without competing: Cakewalk carries coveted higher-end contemporary collections such as DVF, Haute Hippie, Elizabeth and James, Pam & Gela, Joie and Tibi, while Pomp and Circumstance offers fun fashion must-haves by the likes of Gentle Fawn, Everly and Southward Apparel, priced under $200.

And if they didn’t already have enough in common, Earthman sells her own handmade jewelry designs in her store, while Cartwright’s costume jewelry line, Charmed Circle (as seen at Henri Bendel and Bloomingdale’s) keeps company with designs by Chan Luu and Presmer next door adding a little hometown sparkle to the mix on both sides.
