SPARKLY STYLE: THE CATBIRD NEW YORK
Even if sequins and glitter are not your thing, adding sparkly style accents generally help you add a little ‘something special’ to your outfit. So we did the research and found you a top hotspot in New York City. Check out their website or pop in for a little girly, pretty, cute or fancy. It’s worth it. Even if they don’t stock jewelled sandals (yet). In the meantime take a sneak peek at Catbird’s Instagram page and start obsessing. In addition to their own in-house jewel line, Catbird founder Rony Vardi and GM Leigh Plessner stock gems from unique designers.
Catbird’s small storefront right in the center of Williamsburg can get very crowded. But the collection of sparkly pieces, boutique jewelry designers they carry guarantees that, no matter how packed the store gets, you won’t see that bracelet on fifty other girls the week after you bought it (a constant New York problem). And believe me, you will be buying something. It’s impossible to walk in without seeing a hundred sparkly things you have to at least try on for a second. Whether it’s the fun, distinctive jewelled pieces, sparkly nail polish and beauty products, chic candles, or quirky home decor, I always find something that I simply can’t live without. Since it’s located in the hipster capital of the East coast, the store does cater to its clientele, but it manages to do so while maintaining a level of simplicity and beauty that keeps their offerings appealing to everyone who wanders in. That combined with price points to suite any budget makes the Catbird a store that’s always on my top ten list to checkout anytime I’m in Brooklyn. Even if I don’t happen to find any accessories that suit my taste that day, there is always a big selection of beauty products, fragrances, cards, and other random oddities (think a spider web trapped in glass!) that make great sparkly style gifts for friends or an even better – gift to yourself!
