Whether you're preparing for the Oscars or a gala or a ball around town, Mary Norton's got the perfect accessories to make your ensemble sparkle. The local designer started making handbags for friends on her dining room table, but these days they're being clutched by stars like Paris Hilton, Sharon Stone, and Halle Berry. And the brand just keeps getting bigger. With shops in Melrose and Manhattan, among other places, fashionistas can have their pick of the sophisticated yet whimsical bags, priced between $400 and $1,800. Now she's adding shoes to the mix, with jewelry and fragrances on the radar as well. Stop by her flagship store on King Street to see what all the fuss is about, and maybe even catch a glimpse of this style icon in the making.
