So a few readers have been clamoring for me to cover Brooklyn Boutique, “Pieces”…
So I of course had to oblige!
Pieces is definitely a boutique that has the ‘urban fashionista’ in mind. It carries top designers like Vivienne Westwood, Tibi, La Rok, Sass & Bide, Anna Sui, and Norma Kamali…
…and stocks a surplus of unique, fashion forward clothes, shoes, and accessories. The owners of Pieces, husband and wife team Colin and Latisha Daring, have an exquisite eye. The name Pieces, according to Colin, came about because they chose ‘pieces’ from different collections to stock their store instead of ordering the whole collection. He says, the goal for the shopper is to find or buy, “One piece in your closet that is always relevant.”
I’ve actually been to Pieces before, but hesitated blogging about it because the prices are up in the ‘clutch your pearls’ category. For example:
This cute Vivienne Westwood top was on sale…
..at 30% off $398. This hot top by Sisa..
…was a cool $198, and this Anna Sui show stopper…
Dresses average $300 and up, tops start at $98, and vintage sunglasses are about $200, so…if you ever want to splurge, this is the place to go!
But take heart: if your pocket can’t permit spending on that level, you can always find a sick sale! Since I’ve started shopping at Pieces, I’ve found a few notable steals like a hot Tibi club dress for $75 (marked down from $280) and a Marie Marie tube dress for $150 (marked down from $357). You’ll never know what treasures you’ll find, so I’d definitely recommend checking them out.
Pieces has two New York locations in Harlem and Brooklyn (228 West 135th Street and 671 Vanderbilt Avenue at Park Place), but if you’re not in the city, Pieces is now online at www.piecesofbklyn.com! Check out a few of their offerings:
Top Row: Julie Haus Yacht Dress, $315; Spitfire Sunglasses, $40.
Bottom Row: Tosha Knit Wallet, $133; Tibi Square Strapless Dress, on sale for $280 (from $400).
