This week we’re zoning in on the best and brightest places to check out in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. BEAUTIFUL DREAMERS is one of the most delicious shops we’ve ever found and totally worth hopping the L train to Brooklyn to check it out.
Owned by two succesful fashion stylists, April Hughes and Marina Burini the store sells their beautiful finds from trekking the world on fashion shoots. The store feels very bohemian and global.
We literally spent hours in there looking over everything as they sell such an eclectic selection of goods. Be warned, if you’re not careful you might miss something amazing. We fell in love with the glass and bead bracelets that they make themselves, we plan on buying a bunch of them to stack for a cool summer look. We were super excited to discover that they sell the cult papaya lip balm Lukas’ Pawpaw ointment, which if you’re from Australia or New Zealand you use religiously.
There is a unisex perfume they have which might be the most dreamy scent we’ve ever found. It’s called Shigenobu Twilight and is made by a Brooklyn perfumer. The architect designed bottle is made of raw cedar wood. The cedar wood scent along with unusual top notes of yuzu fruit, shiso leaf and black pepper as well as hinoki and violet leaf makes it one of those extraordinary smells that people would constantly ask you what you’re wearing.
Gorgeous hand-made blankets, one of a kind jewelery, divine smelling soy candles made by local Brooklyn artisans, a unique selection of stunning pottery, clothes from around the world, a black clutch bag with a tiny face for a clasp were just a few of the items we fell head over heels for. We were also wildly impressed with the interesting selection of books they sold.
Unlike so many stores in New York where the staff are a little too cool for school, the people working here are so friendly and chatty, it just makes you want to hang around in the store longer. Beautiful Dreamers is the perfect place to buy a gift for a hard to shop for friend or family member or that perfect little something you didn’t realize you needed. There’s literally something here for everyone here.
