While in Manhattan, John and I made a little pilgrimage to J.Crew’s latest venture, the “Liquor Store.” The brain child of Andy Spade in collaboration with the people over at J.Crew, the store inhabits a landmark Tribeca townhouse that dates back to 1825. The original wood bar now boasts everything from vintage watches to John Derian paperweights. John picked up a handsome wool driving cap and I drooled over the vintage books. In one window display sits Andy Spade’s personal straw hat collection. I tell you, the man is a genius. The mix of J.Crew’s modern collection with the historic surrounding was flawless—no detail was overlooked. I even wanted to buy the rugs off the floor!
I love your blog. I almost wish i was a man so i could wear those awesome finds in your post! (almost).
as for margaret atwood, dont read the blind assassin. not my fav and i think its not her best. read The handmaid’s tale — her best by far. and then oryx and crake. she writes amazing post-apocalyptic type literature. oh i could go on and on. but i wont haha.
have a great day!
I pretty much want everything J. Crew makes. This store looks amazing – I can’t wait to visit when I get out to that side of the country!
I picked up a pair of those suede MacAlister desert boots in August (from the first pic, atop the luggage), and I love them!
Oh I love all of these manly things!! I think I should take my boyfriend on a dress-up trip to the liquor store! btw- I love the bowties from your previous post!!

This is amazing! It’s like a man-thropologie or something. I just e-mailed it to my boyfriend. SO COOL. I love how they used the old sign for the outside.
Thanks so much for sharing!

I’m glad you’ve all enjoyed this post! I can’t gush about the shop enough. It was just so unique—a completely new, hip retail experience. Go!
@Rachel: As someone who has long wished for a men’s section in Anthropologie, the word ‘man-thropologie’ just completely made my day!
