Think Closet.

I found Think Closet on East 9th Street, Manhattan (number 318) shortly after I moved to NYC.  I was immediately attracted to the pretty range of dresses – all hung according to colour and shade which makes for a delightful and ordered display across the racks.  Yes, I’m a little control freaky about this kind of thing (that’s why I’ve never been a great in-store sales shopper).  Apparently owner Wendy Chun hand picks all the items she sells in the boutique, clothes chosen from designers not just in New York but across Asia – and she clearly has a theme in mind – everything I saw was very feminine and girlie in a ruffles and lace kinda way.  Many of the fabric patterns were striking, too.  I found myself wanting to try on a pile of dresses just to ‘swoosh’ and play around in them in the changing room.  (Ladies, you get me, right?!) The dress I have posted here was my absolute favourite.  The detail on the fabric is very cute and playful and I thought it would be an excellent addition to my summer wardrobe:

What do you think, Blog Reader? Are you a fan of this kind of fabric design?  It is quite different from many of my more classic outfit posts.  If you are in Manhattan please pay a visit to Think Closet, it’s a veritable feast of designs for the senses!

  1. Love this print! I’ve always been a print girl and have only gone to plain colour (and colour blocking) lately. Anything ‘French’ related and I’m also hooked. NHG x

    This is adorable! I normally don’t love these kind of prints, but the small size of this one works. And the belt looks great with it, too.

    • I’m not usually a fan either, but I quite liked it because I thought it was a bit playful. Hopefully get a lot of wear out of it over the summer. Thanks for stopping by Marissa…

    that is such a pretty dress and you look great. It is very Asian/Japanese, i was out shopping for spring clothes and literary all the dresses i saw were variations of the one you are wearing.

    So very girly and fun this print. The belt toughens it up just a smidge – you’ve styled it beautifully!

    Those shoes are divine! And they go quite well with the dress. This – along with the beautiful warm weather in LA this weekend – makes me yearn for Spring!

    • Thanks for visiting Ava I adore those shoes and I agree they suit the dress well. I’m sure they’re going to get lots of wear this Spring Summer – I just tried them with some flares and they work well so great news 😉 Hope you stop by again soon….
