Is it just us, or do Miami women spend more time shopping than anywhere else in the world? Ladies in the 305 do more than just embrace the "women be shopping" stereotype -- they abuse the crap out of it. And why not? Whether it's a slammin' party that Diddy, Cavalli, or Usher is throwing, a Sunday Funday on the water with your "boat friends," or a low-key afternoon at Tia's house, there's always something to dress up for.

Naturally, local boutiques have picked up on Miami ladies' spendy ways. Here are the best, where you can let your shopaholic ways run rampant. Hey, at least you'll look good while you're breaking the bank.

5. Alchemist
This luxury boutique embodies everything that Cultist stands for: art, fashion, architecture, and cultural lifestyle. Sure, it sits on the more pricey side of the spectrum, but immortal quality has no cost. Not only did Alchemist win the AIA Honor award from the American Institute of Architecture for Best Interior Space in the Country (designed by architect heavyweight champ Rene Gonzalez), but it's also stocked up with some of the best names in the game such as Kenzo, Thom Browne, Junya Watannabe, and Celine.

Unlike our other candidates on the list, Alchemist has not one but two boutiques boasting minimalism - one on the west side of Lincoln Road, right off of Alton, and the other hovering right above in the The Herzog and Demueron Carpark on the fifth level. Aside from all the floor plan intricacies, the designer boutique also guarantees fancy clientele exclusivity with private appointments (because investing in a $1,990 Saint Laurent top is a big fucking deal, folks). Though Alchemist has already contributed loads to the Miami fashion scene, founder Roma Cohen says the store has more up its sleeve. "There's a new store plan being developed, as well as a SUPER project for Art Basel 2014. But you'll have to stay tuned to learn more." Psh, what a tease.

Price point: Expect to drop them Benjys.

I rarely comment on these articles but I am annoyed by this one. I love the 23 year old who balks at the thought of shopping at TJ Maxx. Talk to me when you are 28 and your store is out of business.

There are dozens of other boutiques in Miami that are Far more reasonably priced yet still provide fashion forward items. Kore, My Best Friend's Closet, Orchid Boutique, Rebel, etc.

The fucking NT USED to be a great alt weekly. Now? Overpriced restaurant reviews, schlock reporting, the most overpriced drinks, ads up the ass, & bullshit such as this??? The NT is just another sofla piece of shit rag. :-(
