Last weekend we stopped by Luigi's in South Slope to order a ton of pies
for a church event for the guys.
And this is what I got to stare at (since I'm gluten-free)... :) Luckily, this guy is super nice and super handsome. He can eat a slice in front of me anytime he wants. xo
More basil was in order for our balcony garden. (We can't get enough of it.)
I love it that all the little hardware joints around here sell plants on the sidewalks.
These basil plants were $4.50 and HUGE compared to most. Best deal we've seen.
The basil even got the attention of these three darling Italian women walking by. All friends. Major cooks. They've lived in the neighborhood 40 years, all 1 block apart.
Come on, Linsey & Angie...think about it!!! :)
And guess what? One of these women lives two doors down from us!! I feel so badly we've never met. We now have big plans involving Italian dinners.
There are a few shops in my neighborhood that I love to stop into if I'm walking by....
Beacon's, Vice Versa, Monk Thrift, and Life Emporium. I've also heard good things about Guvnor's Vintage. (All on 5th Avenue.)
On this day, we stopped by Life Emporium.
Danny spotted the hat in the window. $10.
This jacket is actually SO good. It's from H&M from many years ago. My sister and my friend, Abby, both have it. They both look amazing in it.
Danny loved this silky top/dress.
I think this could be such a cute cover-up for the beach!
And two great dresses...
(FYI, I left all these cute finds behind. Maybe you can hunt them down!)
There are lots of dollar stores down on the south end of 5th Avenue. I seldom go there, but I kind of want to - I bet some good finds are to be had. Apparently, I really liked that bag. oh my.
And there are plenty of Brooklyn residents who dig these flying birds in their stoop gardens. :)
Oh, Brooklyn...we do love you.
And I have to ask, what do you think of when you think of Brooklyn? So many people think it's a dangerous place, which is funny. Just curious what you envision. Of course, if you're from Manhattan, Brooklyn is "so far" away...unless Smorgasborg, Brooklyn Flea, Grimaldi's, or Jane's Carousel are involved. :)
-White oxfords are by Frye. They are SO comfortable and seem to go with anything summery - I just love them.
-Danny's sunglasses - which he wears everywhere - are by Ray Ban. They are the "New" Wayfarer Style in Light Blue Rubber w/ Crystal Gray Gradient Lens (they're a bit cheaper here on Amazon). I actually want a pair myself!
