Riding high on the Girls publicity frenzy while taking a page from GOOP, Vogue has compiled a list of the "best of the best" of Brooklyn shopping, where you can find "truly superlative souvenirs" to bring back from your long journey across the East River.
Naturally, the trip starts at perennial favorite Bird and the DUMBO outpost Zoë, but it takes a few unexpected turns with its loungewear suggestions. Such as: a Two New York caftan, most likely chosen for breezy Park Slope moms, and a futuristic cami by The Lake and Stars for a slightly hipper crowd. With twee boutiques and the underwear of the locals covered, the next step is beauty. Recommended are Tommy Guns and Woodley & Bunny—both located within blocks of each other in Williamsburg. —Cambrey Thomas
