Charlie & Sam

Brooklyn, New York

Last week we visited the Charlie and Sam trunk show, a charming Williamsburg boutique named after the two owner’s dogs which are immortalized in gilded frames behind the register. They sell unique treasures by handmade designers such as Alexandra Grecco who was there with her staple “sexy pink polaroid” and Telesca’s Meagan Camp with her signature poppy red lips. Oh so retro Hannah made the room a more beautiful place and Marco Argiro of The Mood filled the room with music and let me do a mini-photo shoot!


Last night Future Friends, a Brooklyn based design company, opened up it’s garage door for a summertime BBQ in Williamsburg with all the High Life & hot dogs a girl could ask for. Having a converted auto-body garage for offices makes for a very functional modern work space and I can imagine a great work environment. Ok.. I’m slightly jealous. Bonus, finally met the man behind scanwiches.. nice guy and surprisingly trim.
