There are stores in the garment district I pass regularly, and have never venture inside. Despite recommendations from STGD friends and others, I had not been specifically moved to visit this store, since I am not a person who uses a multitude of flashy trimmings. The feathers and sparkles in the windows had never lured me in. But then, because I am working out the design details for a bag I am making, I decided to take a look, and found all sorts of fun stuff.
|Of particular interest were these lace neckline decorations (also in black). I can see ways to use them beyond bridal.|
I walked in, with a bit of time to spend, and saw all of the fun, unexpected stuff! There's also an arrow pointing up, inviting you to go upstairs. Follow that arrow. Fun bridal stuff up and more up there.
The store is quite affordable, not high-end, and it looks like it appeals to the costumer/artist types. At least, that's who I saw when I was in there. No pressure or aggressive salespeople while browsing. Just fun.
