[This is the second post for Office Styling Guide.] I absolutely adore my life in Williamsburg. I could never imagine that one day I would say this when I was an Upper East Sider Girl. One day we decided to have a 1 bedroom apartment with a washing machine, and we ended up with our high-rise waterfront building. Since then, I love our neighborhood. And I love shopping in this area. You can find so many great boutiques and vintage stores. So here: 10 Best Williamsburg Boutiques.
Before I start my list, I need to add that I love the curve through Greenpoint. I rarely go to Manhattan anymore. So I am gonna add boutiques also From Greenpoint. (Do I miss my Upper East Side years, of course!! I want to jog in Central Park so bad, guys)
Where to Shop in Williamsburg
When I say the vintage store, the first store in my mind is here. They have the best brand in great conditions. I am not a huge vintage shopper, but here is a heaven for people like me. I swear, sometimes I feel the items in here are not like used before. They are so clean and delicately taken care of. I can’t forget this lace dress that the most delicate one I’ve ever seen. And they did a great job of taking care of that dress. In honor of that beautiful lace dress that I don’t own, I style this lace top. (I don’t know why I didn’t buy that dress, still dreaming about it.)
The Vale Boutique
I love this boutique so much, so I ended up in one of my Coffee Talks Newest Yorkers videos in this boutique’s backyard. They used to have a coffee shop on the front side, but I shut down that part. I love versatile shopping experiences. This is why this store is one of my fav ones. It’s a shame that there are no coffee shops anymore. But they do have great brands like “Moon River,” “Yaz Bukey,” “Quay Australia,” and so many others. 113 N 7th St Brooklyn, NY 11249
Meg is one of my favorite independent designer brands based in Brooklyn. I think she has a great sense of trends. Very minimalistic and very up-to-date designs. And the prices are excellent when you think that every piece has only 3-4 more items. It’s not like wearing from Zara that another girl has the same blouse from that season.54 N 6th St Brooklyn, NY 11211
Myths of Creation
This place is one of the most fun-to-go stores in the Williamsburg area. The owner is my friend. Shame that we never met in person, but she is one of my favorite internet personalities. I follow her Instagram religiously because she has the most interesting stuff to share. I mean not only images but her long captions. 421 Graham Ave Brooklyn, NY 11211 @shopmyths
So, like every other fashion blogger, I love designer brands. But I generally keep looking and checking them online. Bird is the best location to check all the alternative designer brands. They are not the brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton etc. More like Masur Gavriel, Robert Clergerie etc. 203 Grand St Brooklyn, NY 11211
I love Mirth Vintage of the nice best on in the neighborhood. But they actually located in Greenpoint but definitely worth have a walk to Greenpoint to take a look at their items. 606 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
I love Oak because I can check around with Fatih. So while I am digging stuff myself, he actually enjoys checking men’s clothing for himself as well. But sometimes clothing items can be expensive, but I love their unique accessories. Especially sunglasses. 55 Nassau Ave Brooklyn, NY 11222
Scotch and Soda
Ok, I’ll admit. It’s not a boutique, but I still love to shop here. I think they have the friendliest staff in this location. I forgot my favorite guys’ name, but when I am there next time. I ask his name again. He is the best. I always find the stuff I like the most for me even though they don’t have them in that store.
If you live in Brooklyn enough, you will see this fashion style, minimalistic, easy, comfortable and gender-free. Pas mal is one of those brands that represent this style perfectly. I especially love the shoes and jumpsuits in this place. 99 Franklin St, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Phenix Luxury Consignment + Vintage Collectibles
I bought my very first straw box bag from this store. The best thing about this store is you can actually find items that are not breaking the bank. So many items from accessories to jewelry, clothing to bags. 130 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY 11249
I hope you enjoy this series as well. Please comment if you have other boutiques in your mind to add those to my 10 Best Williamsburg Boutiques list.
