bird is the word

my dear friend karen (bonjourbruxelles)
called me the other day from the streets of brooklyn. she was on a hall pass from her family. her call was to wish me a splendid new year, and when i asked her of her whereabouts, she explained, that for a few hours, while in new york, she was out sourcing cool new shops.
we sat on the phone, she on the corner of some street in cobble hill, i on the computer in l.a., we googled her way to 'bird'. i had never heard of this boutique. but leave it to karen to source out the best-est places to peruse. check this shop out. so wonderful.
adorable hand created masterpieces. if you've read this blog for any amount of time: you know how anti-bratz i am. this is what childrens' toys should be.
love these shirts. reminiscent of hand tooled, prints. fabo. (and what an inspiration for those of us who can 'totally make that' )
i just love this photo. i don't know, do i love the fabric more than i love the globe more than i love the stool? it's all so wonderful and swirling and chocolately and bright pink....
and then there's the jewelry. the jewelry on the twig with that vintage wallpaper. i haven't been to this store, but god love the creative director. you're making anthro look like a pack of corporate wannabes.
so of course, i click onto the 'jewelry' ( i have an impending wedding) i think , oh dear. these are perfect. i'll buy these for my gals as bride's maids gifts.
um. god i love you girls, at 890.00 it's just not happening. but they're beautiful eh? so about now, i'm sounding 'cheap ass' ok, well look at the sale items. i love this top/dress? great with jeans or a black tight and super strippy shoes. you call it:
and check out these hot,sigerson morrison boots:
i mean , seriously, this is what you want in a boot. business on the up swing,
party on the down-fold. it's the mullet of boots for god's sake.
karen is my go-to girl for all things cool and boutique-y. check out's so 'the word'

Love your "Bird" gig/scoop! ! !

That is none other than an untouchable Josef Frank/Svenskt Tenn fabric. ("Hawaii" in brown linen, also comes in white)

Cheers, Alison

Megan, nothing like the sweet bi-coastal internet to make all good things happen. I scored some Wendy Mink earrings and a couple of Stewart+Brown frocks at Bird. I think you're good karma was with me all the way.
