This week we’re talking about shopping local. DUMBO (Brooklyn), my neighborhood, was hard hit by the storm (click here to see our day after video). Many of our small businesses are still cleaning up and trying to figure out how to move forward. As a community, it’s important to rally around your neighbors in support. One of my favorite retailers in DUMBO is Brooklyn Industries–a small design company based and operated in Brooklyn. This week I went in search of a great fashion feature from Brooklyn Industries and found this top.
Graphic sweaters are so trendy and chic…and a little playful. Boy could most of NYC use a little playful fashion these days. The week has been grim. To lighten things up, I picked the Raccoon Graphic Intarsia Pullover it’s cute and quirky and ideal for this layering-friendly weather. ($88)
I paired it up with my Denizen jean leggings, a Theodora & Callum Scarf and my old (circa 2002) biker jacket from Ralph Lauren. The boots are last year’s Coach boots–and I can walk forever in them. For more of the BI fashions click below.
In addition to highlighting our local retailers, I’m also coordinating diaper drives and trying to help get products and supplies to those in NYC and NJ in need. To read more about what we’re doing head to this Relief Effort Post.
Now I’d love to know what you’ve been up to fashion-wise. This Monday post is part of Monday Mingle. I team up with Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls for a weekly dose of style. We take turns hosting the linky, and this week Jill as the honors. Be sure to stop by here.
