Shopping Trip: Hudson

I stopped off at Hudson yesterday to pick up a Lynzarium (that’d be a terrarium by local lovely Lyndsay Maver) for a magazine holiday gift guide. Unbelievably, it was the first time I had been into the new space. (Hudson moved around the corner last year into the former photo studio space most recently occupied by clothing boutique Looc.) Owner/designer Jill Goldberg happened to be there, so we had a nice visit catching up on things. And, in the interest of efficiency and multi-tasking, I took lots of Instagram shots for a blog post. If you’re in Boston, Hudson’s got many wonderful gifts, plus plenty of wonderful furniture and home accessories. Definitely stop in.

Shopping Trip: Lekker

Yesterday I headed over to Boston’s South End to meet Seema Krish at her studio (and then The Buttery for a carrot cupcake—the best, best, best carrot cupcakes). Then I popped an extra quarter into the meter (yeah, I drove; lame) and ducked into  Lekker, one of Boston’s best design shops. Lines include David Trubridge, Eleanor Pritchard, Marie’s Corner, Blomus, Menu, Oak Pure, John Derian Furniture, Mud Australia, MEPRA, and tons more. I had a nice chat with Natalie, who owns the shop, and took plenty of photos. I will certainly post a peek at what’s Seema’s been up to (her newest collection debuts in April), but in the meantime, here’s what’s in store at Lekker.

Shopping Trip: Good Boutique

Good is the best boutique in Boston for jewelry and gifts. It is absolutely the most beautiful and well-curated; owner Paul Niski has impeccable—impeccable—taste. Some of my own favorites come from there (and Barneys, and The Tiny Jewel Box in D.C., and, ok, Tiffany’s too.)  When my best college friend, Jessica Biales, showed me her jewelry, I knew it belonged at Good. I stopped in yesterday to see it in situ, and also to check out the new store (they moved across the street, to a larger space this fall). I hope you love Jessica’s work; I suspect you will love most everything here. (And sorry, I didn’t actually take as many photos of other jewelry as I would have liked. Next time!)

Shop Alert: J. Crew Mens Shop Opens in Copley; Women’s Expands

The J.Crew Mens Shop opened at Copley Place in Boston this week. This is the company’s first dedicated all mens store outside New York City. The original J. Crew store across the way is now entirely devoted to women. A definite improvement, but first, a look at the new Mens Shop.

Looks a lot like Brooks Brothers to me, from the dark paneling to the scripty gold logo. Hmm. Guess the women’s collection is not the only aspect going all fancy.  (You DID notice the $600 items in the fall catalog, didn’t you?)

Same clothing that was across the way last week, and I suppose the cabinetry isn’t dissimilar, but the vibe feels stuffier.

Table of ties. Could do without the tartan.

Chambray and gingham hankies.

Love the hunk of slag glass.

Retro fans and other objects behind the register.

Heading across the way to the original space . . .

The women’s store is now wide open.

A shoe department was added in the back. Love the picture wall.

And more jewelry cases are scattered around the store.

No complaints here.
