Last week I wandered around Williamsburg to explore some of the stores and boutiques there. I like the look and feel of Williamsburg. I’ve had two fantastic brunches there (Juliette’s and Walter Foods) and the buildings always strike me as being a little Hopper-esque in the right light, which is delightful (and which reminds me, you have just a few more days to catch this excellent Hopper exhibition at the Whitney museum in NYC!)
I’d heard good things about Pop and Sodafine in Williamsburg and my informants were not wrong: Pop had a delightful collection of Summer dresses and bags and the vintage jewellery at Sodafine was colourfully cute – I’ve posted my favourite items from both boutiques, below. My sought after item in Pop was the Seagull dress, but top marks to a store that names their floral jumpsuit the “Romper Stomper” as I might just have to add that to my wish list too:
At some stage in my travels I took the wrong turn which prevented me from finding the Love Brigade co-op I was keen to explore. However there is often no “right” path through life and I found myself on the doorstep of the fabulous lingerie boutique Brooklyn Fox instead. We must have been like two magnets attracting each other – I happily wiled away time here…. I loved the layout of the boutique and the fact that so much of the lingerie was on display. They stock a range of lingerie and shapewear including Huit, Mimi Holliday, Only Hearts, Andres Sarda (a new find) and Betsey Johnson. I was very tempted by the Huit cupcake bra in red, but red lingerie? Blog Reader I need your advice on this. Yay or nay to red?
Overall I found some gorgeous boutiques in Williamsburg – I’d recommend Brooklyn Fox, Pop and Sodafine to anyone out shopping in the area and as for Love Brigade? Next time… is there anything else in this area I missed?
