Shop the Block: Glendora Village’s Fiorina


Finding Fiorina is a bit like walking into the oversized closet of a friend with
impeccable taste, and hearing her say she doesn’t mind sharing.
It’s a credit to shop proprietress Nikki Vitale, who’s made a point, since openin

g in 2003, to cater to locals looking for their favorite labels.
“So many women were forced to travel outside the city, to the West side, for the
brands that they love,” said Vitale. “I wanted to bring those big labels to this charming
community.”
Vitale stocks the shop’s brick-lined walls with pulled-together weekend wear (sweaters

from Free People, maxi dresses from Michael Stars and Three Dots), premium denim

(Sold Design Lab, AG, Hudson) and work wear (Michael Kors blazers).
In other words, a little something for everyone.
“What we carry is ageless. We have something for mom and daughter,” Vitale
said.
Men aren’t left out, either. The begrudged plus-ones become a little less begrudged

after walking to the back of the space to find a flat screen TV playing football or a

Nascar race, a comfy couch, and a cup of joe.
Also up for offer? Delicate, nature-inspired jewelry by Rawks and Krista Moline

and soy candles from Fiamma Naturals.
