»· Local Jaunt : Pixie Market ·«

August 9, 2011

Living around the corner from Pixie Market is possibly the best and worst thing about my apartment. While it’s filled with some of the most innovative and interesting pieces I’ve seen, a walk to the gym can be easily put off by a new pair of shoes staring at me from the window or a quick coffee run can easily turn into a much larger expense than a two dollar cappuccino. But boy oh boy do I love a good jaunt in Pixie Market. Its racks are filled with colorful clothing in all kinds of interesting shapes and silhouettes and the shoes and accessories are unique and total statement pieces. Seriously, if you’re looking for totally one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your wardrobe, look no further than this little Lower East Side boutique!

Now, I understand how frustrating it can be to hear about an amazing store in NYC if you don’t live here. But good news for all you non New York folk! Pixie Market has an awesome online shop (here) with perhaps even more pieces than there are in the store. So go get your shop on!!

Thomas Sires

December 13, 2010

Last Thursday I was invited to the opening of a brand new Nolita boutique called Thomas Sires, co-owned by Fiona Thomas (who I’ve actually known since I was a wee tot!) and Allison Sires. The store is tucked away on the quiet Elizabeth Street but is impossible to miss thanks to its inviting interior and neon pink sign that practically pulls you in through its glass doors. The inside feels like an emptied out living room from the 1950s that’s now filled with downtown-chic clothing, sexy little intimates and all kinds of wonderful bric-á-brac that one might find in stores like Colette.

I arrived about thirty minutes after the party officially started and the shop was already so packed I could barely get my hands on a glass of champagne! But once I had a few sips and munched on a delicious macaron, I sifted through the racks placed around the store and fell head-over-heels in love with practically every item. Among my favorites was a chunky knit vest lined in faux fur, a houndstooth-like skirt, and the most adorable children’s pieces that I wish they had in adult sizes.  Although too crowded to try anything on at the opening, I can hardly wait to go back and get my hands on a few pieces and it’s probably both a good and bad thing that the boutique is only a few blocks from my apartment…
