Ever since I started adding style photos to this blog, I’ve found myself much more willing to try new stores.  Whereas at one point I had a rotation of 5 or 6 stores where I bought 90% of my clothes, for the last few months I’ve stopped in anywhere with a good window.  Not surprisingly, I’ve had some great finds that totally wouldn’t have made it onto my radar a year or two ago.

One of those finds is Brooklyn Industries.  I used to think that their clothes are too grungy and hipster-ish for me, but when I actually went inside a few weeks ago, I found some very cute, relaxed, elegant pieces.  This dress fits like pajamas and it’s polished enough for work — does it get any better than that?

Oh, wait.  Yes, it does.  It’s also on sale for $50!  And still available in almost every size.  See, it’s a good thing to venture off the beaten path every once in a while!

Brooklyn Industries dress, Jimmy Choo heels, vintage bracelet, Ferragamo sunglasses.

    Ooh cute!  That looks comfy & chic.  The best of both worlds!

    Btw, I never got to thank you for your NY recs!  It was a washout when we got there, but we made the best of it!  Anyway, thanks for your insight! :)

    I’ve looked, but I haven’t found a place to subscribe to the food posts only.  Is there such a feed?  How do I find it?

    Sara — It’s actually my grandmother’s — so vintage.  It’s just a plain gold bracelet with a little detail, not sure you can see much in the photos.

    CC — Yes!  You can subscribe to the food-only feed here: http://www.sugarlaws.com/category/food/feed
