from top to bottom: Lafayette Street and a burst of white spring flowers and Debut New York's minimalist storefront

Wow. Things are getting really busy these days. But that doesn't mean a girl can't take a time out to do a little windowshopping. Last week, I experienced a little spring fever and hit some cool little shops downtown. Here are some pictures from that glorious day...

above: a Michael Angel dress from Debut New York

One of my first stops: Debut New York, a wonderful showcase for emerging designers. We're going to feature an interview with the boutique's owner and curator, so I won't ruin the surprise... But do check out the store's website here!

from top to bottom: the entrance to Kiosk and a funny sign on the wall inside

Then, I stopped by the tiny curiosity shoppe style boutique, Kiosk, which features design objects from around the world, one country or region of the world at a time. On display this time were objects from America. Check out more here.

and... a peek at Nicholas Kirkwood shoes

I had to stop by Seven to say hello to some orphan shoes. If only I could make like Angelina Jolie and adopt them.

Off to First Lady favorite Zero+Maria Cornejo, which opened a new shop about two months ago. Love love the industrial storefront and the natural, light-filled interiors.

above: threeASFOUR's studio and pieces from Fall 09

Last but not least, I leave you with this dreamy image from my visit to the studio of design collective, threeASFOUR. Their Chinatown studio was dreamy-- silver walls, mirrors everywhere. I interviewed them for a magazine and am really excited to share my guerrilla camerawork.

Hope you're enjoying the start to a productive week!

Those shoes are so amazing. The sunshine always inspires me to get out and do a bit of shopping myself.

Carlotta said...

the first pic is amazing, I'd love to come to NY in spring one day..

These pics really make me miss New York. I lived there for a short 6 months in 2002. Good times. :)

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Oh, helloo Nicholas Kirkwood. I would like to adopt you, too.

Dream Sequins said...

Thanks for your wonderful comments! Looks like a perfect outfit would be the Michael Angel dress and the Kirkwood shoes. I've had an awful time of it at work, and it's nice to read your comments!

Haute-Shopper: Can you tell I was inspired by your awesome guerrilla shop snapping style with this post?

WendyB, you would look awesome in it!

MizzJ: Thanks for visiting! Love your blog...

Wendy: Yay. Thanks for the comment :)

Lisa: It was a super lovely day! I guess I was inspired. My photography skills are kinda meh.

Frankie: Spring is calling me! Thanks for visiting.

Helen: Are blue shoes in your future?

Rachael: It's going to be rainy in New York for a bit before it gets nice again... These pictures are but a reminder of what was and will be to come.

Carlotta: Spring is so brief here. Fall is my favorite season. The beginning of it-- right after the damp humidity of summer.

Turtle: Wow-- what were you doing in New York for six months?

K: "Pick me! Pick me!" (shoes)

There's a Debut uptown--no? I think it's sort of near my apartment, but like an avenue over. I've never been to it but I've always enjoyed their window when I do pass by [usually without my camera because I actually unglue myself from it when I'm running errands around the UES]

alissa said...

ooo those are some amazing shoes - especially that blue pair!

great blog! i love the interviews

The Bridal BFF said...

I am loving those shoes by Kirkwood! Wow...fabulousity!

Dream Sequins said...

Modelizer: That might actually be a different Debut uptown, than the one downtown... Same name, different concepts.

alissa: Thanks so much for visiting! The blue are really fabulous in person. Check em out!

The Bridal BFF: The Kirkwoods are really fabulous. Thanks for stopping by :)
