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!
