LIKE TO HAVE: ITEMS FROM BIRD NEW YORK

April 15, 2011

Why you should go to Bird when you’re in New York? Well this store is voted Best Fashion Store in New York several times. The former buyer from Barneys decided to open her own boutique in 1999 in Brooklyn. Now fashionista’s gladly leave their Manhattan island to visit that store (or one of the other two stores) in Brooklyn. The collection is fabulous. She sells items from A.P.C., Acne and Alexander Wang among others.

I did some online window shopping and found my favorites:

Leather espadrilles from 3.1 Phillip Lim: 192 euro
Long skirt from Madewell: 110 euro
Striped shirt from Edith A Miller: 45 euro

LIKE TO HAVE: CITY PILLOW

June 20, 2010

My friend and stylist Xaviera Aubri likes to travel – right now she’s in Tokyo – and collects the coolest souvenirs around the world, like this:

A cool embroidered pillow with a map of the city on it. I choose for the one of Brooklyn – a tiny bit better than the one of Manhattan. You buy it for 120 euro at Uncommon Goods.

What do you think?
