Score! 2$ stamp kit from the Super Saver

I love days off where I can roam around my neighborhood and find cool stuff. Like this stamp kit, I have been looking through amazon for weeks trying to get this exact thing. They weren't what I wanted and way too expensive. Thank you super save of Broadway

I think this is awesome, there’s so much stuff I could do with this. If I had a cat I would cover him in this. Just kidding

Smith and Butler, Eva Gentry and other things to do in Cobble Hill

2008_1205_1

I recently went to Smith and Butler in Brooklyn, the entire store was so pretty I wanted to move in. I wish I had gone there when I actually lived in the neighborhood. This picture came from the Sartorialist but im pretty sure you could buy this entire outfit at Smith and Butler. The store is wonderful and the sales guy a doll the owner was a bit icy.

While your there check out all the cool shops on Atlantic, including Eva Gentry

If your lucky Eva might help you pick something out and if your luckier Gentry might compliment you on it. I went to a BBQ at their house this summer, their home is amazing and they are an amazing couple with great taste, trust their opinion

Is there an item you are currently saving up to buy? 
Eva: A 1965 white convertible Mustang.
Gentry: A 1949 Harley Chopper.

Any trends you like this season? 
Eva: We feel most of our designers have a lot of freedom, and we appreciate each label's own aesthetic. 
Gentry: Something sexy and something leather.

What should everyone have in their closet? 
Eva: Every woman needs something that makes her feel sexy. 
Gentry: Every man needs a great pair of boots.

Finish this sentence: I never leave home without …
Eva: Gold, diamonds, and something by Margiela.
Gentry: A lot of jewelry and a motorcycle helmet.
