Tweet That...

I remember when BIRD first opened in my "hood" and I was so super excited, I have been wanting to post about it ever since. First off the space itself is just so pleasant to be in. Open and airy, organic, yet modern. It's packed with beautiful things yet because of the expert merchandising you never feel overwhelmed. Another key component is the incredible people that work there. Every time I have come in whether is as a customer or when I came in to take pictures I have been treated with such earnest kindness. I really adore visiting and shopping here @

I frequent the location on Grand street between Bedford


It really is a beautiful shop

but let's get down to the nitty gritty. Here are a couple of things I may have to smack someone down for....

Leather leg warmers... say what?

Get yourself in one of these dressing rooms immediately and try on some of these killer threads!
