Feeling re-energized thanks to her fan, Bayne hits one final store, Oak (28 Bond Street, 212-677-1293), which carries established designers on the first floor and more-affordable clothing in the basement. She coos over a pair of soft leather gym pants by Preen ($900). "I just want to wrap myself in them," she says, and throws the legs around her shoulders like a cape. But she doesn't dare try them on: "I'm afraid I'll love them too much."
