Just might be the best store ever. *
It is truly unique what Maryam Nassir Zadeh and her fiancé, Uday Kak have done with this space.
The objects and clothing are displayed like the works of art they are, yet none of it feels stuffy or pretentious. The atmosphere is welcoming, and it is obvious that Maryam and Uday take pride in and enjoy what they do.
This is the store I ended up taking Judi to (see yesterday's post) and she thoroughly enjoyed it...which made me very happy. It was the one store that I really wanted to see in NYC.
Out of everything in the whole store I ended up purchasing a necklace by Los Angeles based artist and jeweler Lauren Manoogian, as well as a vintage patchwork jacket from the wardrobe department of Universal Studios! (photos to follow soon)
Just goes to show you can take the girl out of L.A. ...
