Brief sojourn in Brooklyn

 While we were in NYC, we spent a day in Brooklyn, mainly to see a wonderful Kiki Smith exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The show featured her drawings and sculpture.





I was really taken by her delicate yet powerful drawings.

We also visited a store I've been dying to see for a long, long time.

Pip-Squeak Chapeau are famous for their incredible knitwear, but they have beautiful clothes too.

I spent a lot of time trying everything on, and walked away with several linen dresses. I had read about the owner and designer, Sveta Dresher, in Selvedge magazine, so it was a treat to meet her in person. She was as lovely as her clothes!

If you find yourself hungry in Greenpoint, may I suggest a lovely pizza place? Paulie Gee's serves up Neapolitan-style pizza with amazing combinations of fresh local ingredients. Great food, service and surroundings.
