Williamsburg Treasures

Wedding Favor Inspiration

This past weekend, my fiance and I decided we were in much need of a Brooklyn day trip.  We had just read NY Mag's "Best Of" issue, which featured Williamsburg's Parish Hall as the best brunch in NYC.  Since that made the decision of where to go in Brooklyn easy, we just had to get over the fact that a minor blizzard started as soon as we walked out the door.  When we arrived in Williamsburg, we were welcomed with my favorite combination of real estate: boutiques and bars.  While I had been to the area many times before, I was always in a rush with no time to explore.  But, on this particularly snowy Saturday, we had no immediate plans, giving me plenty of time to do some damage. While I loved all of the shops on Bedford street, my absolute favorite was the now quite famous Catbird boutique.  Catbird is known for gorgeous delicate jewelry (think knuckle rings and finger bracelets), but in the boutique I was drawn to the accessories outside of the glass cabinets.  Since the shop carried such a well-curated selection of unique pieces, I decided to share a few of my favorites.  See descriptions below each pic.  Which one do you like best? xx
