Take II on Boutique Bucket List, a feature where I choose a few of the stores that I would visit on my dream boutique road trip.
Aside from longstanding favorites like Need Supply Co. and Amelia, there are an endless list of boutiques that I'm desperate to see in person rather than just shop online. Part I of the Boutique Bucket List included Sydney's Girl & Graaf, New York's The Apartment (brick & mortar shop of The Line), LA's Poketo, and Paris's The Broken Arm. Here are the rest of my faves:
WESTERLIND - Nobody but nobody does outdoor gear like New York's Westerlind, which is self-described as a place where "technical gear and apparel meet a style-minded boutique". Dream. Westerlind has curated a collection of cozy sweaters, wool blankets, and snuggly slippers that somehow all make perfect sense sitting next to something like an axe. P.S. - I also profiled Westerlind for KEEP a few months back! At this point, I might be at certified stalker level.
Favorite Westerlind finds: Samuji Kamu Sweater ($299) + Military Wool Blanket ($184.50)
TENOVERSIX - TENOVERSIX is one of the original cool-girl shops and, aside from the killer store decor, offers the must lust-worthy shoes, accessories, and beauty products ever from designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Clare Vivier, Rodin, Want Les Essentiels, and tons more. Also, the owner is the wife of Jason Schwartzman. If that doesn't convince you that TENOVERSIX is the best store ever, nothing will.
BROOK FARM GENERAL STORE - I kick myself on a daily basis for not visiting Brooklyn-based Brook Farm General Store when I lived in Greenpoint. Featuring a well-curated selection of home, cooking, and lifestyle goods, BFGS (we're that close) is basically a small town country store right smack in the middle of NYC's trendiest neighborhood. It doesn't get better than that.
