This mother of two dominates in a traditionally male industry. After 25 years, Cohen really understands female investors' strengths (patience, big-picture perspective) and struggles (like, say, supporting children and parents simultaneously) — and uses all of it to plan for their success. One Tower Bridge, 100 Front Street, suite 600, Conshohocken, PA 19428, morganstanleyfa.com/cohensutcliffe.
One look at owner Linda LaRosa, always outfitted in a rocker tee, leather jacket and ripped skinnies, and you'll want to be her — or at least crib her style. Luckily, she provides the building blocks at her boutique, which stocks Rag & Bone jeans, IRO leather jackets, Thomas Wylde tunics, Dannijo jewelry, and everything else you need to look like one of Rittenhouse's most discerning shoppers. 1921 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, shopsixtyfive.com.
You'll find a handful of watches peppered throughout Ruben Luna's shop, but the real cache is his collection of 300-plus hard-to-find timepieces (a rare Jaeger-LeCoultre, perhaps?) and he's willing to part with (some of) them. After an initial consultation, Luna, a former design director for Movado, will set up a private shopping appointment at which he'll show you his finest treasures. 1544 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19146, workshopunderground.com.
It's Holland's best export, with everything you'd expect from a place that offers velvet dinner jackets but none of the intimidation factor. Prices are low ($399 for a two-piece suit), alterations are quick (no more than three days), and the non-suit stock (leather bags, crisp shirts) will help you finally understand what "business casual" actually means. 1601 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, us.suitsupply.com/en_US/home.
Among the aisles of instant noodles and pickled veggies at this Asian supermarket, you'll find a selection of hard-to-find Korean beauty products, like pearl-infused sheet masks, of-the-moment beauty cushions, and hyaluronic acid moisture packs. Sounds weird, but it's magic, we swear. 7320 Old York Road, Elkins Park, PA 19027, hmart.com.
If cold treats with "ice" in their names (ice cream, shaved ice) could have an inferiority complex, they'd all hang their heads in shame when confronted with the water ice from this tiny, cash-only shop in the sleepy borough of Yardley. The flavors are interesting but not "bacon-cilantro" weird (orange creamsicle, cherry bordeaux, cappuccino), the consistency is velvet-smooth, and the end result is that you'll never go to Rita's again. 77 South Main Street, Yardley, Yardley, PA 19067, yardleyicehouse.com.
Carved out of Di Bruno's 9th and Chestnut location, this beer store encourages customers to stop and linger with excellent cheesemonger-approved pairings.

Dodgeball league, fiesta night, food from a former Amis chef: This isn't your father's stodgy club. Founded in 1889, the hideaway is in the midst of a youth movement, attracting new clientele (particularly Wharton MBA students, we hear) with a new fitness center and three additional squash courts. Annual membership averages $2,000. 215 South 16th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102, rcop.com.
A stone's throw from Temple's main campus, this 19th-century museum is often overlooked for seemingly mightier institutions (i.e., the Barnes), but its awe-inspiring architecture and vast array of fossils, taxidermies and skeletons, plus a particularly heebie-jeebies-inducing bug collection, make it worth a visit. Did we mention it's free? 1700 West Montgomery Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19121, wagnerfreeinstitute.org.
If you inquire about a ubiquitous fragrance like Chanel No. 5, a staffer might emit a good-natured chuckle, then direct you to the newly expanded fragrance wall. Lined with impossible-to-find brands like Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Montale and Eight & Bob, it’ll soon have you muttering Coco who? 1811 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, joanshepp.com.
In the age of designer weed (and loose laws), it seems only fitting that this Camden-based e-shop is turning out an artful line of rose-gold grinders, crystal pipes and opal ashtrays. Who knew lighting up could look so chic? Sweetflag.club.
Leaking toilets, flooded basements and clogged disposals always (always!) happen on Sundays.

Service in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery counties. Multiple Locations, goodmanplumbers.com.
Chef Doreen DeMarco takes a Philly pretzel, splits it, crisps it, and stuffs it with Country Time ham, American cheese, mustard and a pickle. Even better: It’s just $5. 1800 Federal Street, Philadelphia, PA 19146, americansardinebar.com.
