Shopaholics Felicia Jackson and Rolanda Hoard have such impeccable taste in gifts that their bosses and friends' husbands were always asking them for shopping help.

Three years ago, they turned the hobby into an on-line accessories boutique:

And in October, they turned the online store into a Park Avenue bricks-and-mortar shop, complete with electric blue walls and a zebra-print dressing room.

Regali Accessories (regali is the Italian word for gifts) features such goodies as cheetah-print leg warmers, python handbags by Clara Kasavina priced at $1,000, crystal-coated belt buckles for $225 and a gorgeous necklace of interlocking hammered rings that sells for $138.

"I don't buy anything unless I love it," says Jackson, a self-proclaimed clothes- and shoe-horse. "Unless I would wear it, I won't buy it."

One other selling point: Just behind the store is the uber-hip Salon RaChe', owned by Jackson's sister, Rachel Thompson. So fashionistas can get the latest accessories, and then get their hair done, all in one happy visit.
