Last month, award-winning Beacon Hill boutique Vira (a Racked 38 member) shuttered its Charles Street spot to make the complete switch to e-commerce. It's a bummer to see the store close up shop, as its lofty white-walled space was a fresh canvas for colorful clothes from off-the-radar, international designers. But as one door closes, another virtual one opens, and owners Vivek and Radhika have already relaunched their website. Though the selection isn't necessarily expansive, there are fun pieces available to shop including a faux leather fit-and-flare party dress ($105) and a floral lace maxi dress ($79).
