|Marimekko, Flatiron NY|
|Bluebottle Coffee, Midtown NY|
I pass this new-ish Marimekko boutique several times a week on my walk to and from work. Each time I feel the pull. My appreciation is more of the gestalt type - once I stop to examine individual pieces, I have less desire to actually purchase anything. (It would help if they made at least some dresses in the fitted/flared style rather than the baggy-bag style.) Still though – every time – I just want to step in, walk around, and soak up the happy vibes. Who knows, maybe one of these days I'll try on one of their dresses. Maybe it'll look smashing on me! The patterns and colors are gorgeous.
