We didn't even realize Williamsburg was lacking in the denim department until this weekend, when Courtshop quietly opened their second-ever location at 218 Bedford Avenue (Mini Mini Market's former home). But the store's '70's-inspired high-waisted shorts, dark rinse overalls, and white skinnies with built-in suspenders are the perfect, stealthily-cool complement to their neighbors' vintage peasant blouses (Amarcord) or Mara Hoffman tunics (Brooklyn Fox).
Store owner Lisa Fuller's in-house jean line makes up the bulk of the merchandise, but we spotted a few Courtshop-branded crop tops, as well as a handful of Mink Pink dresses, and some killer vintage picks (like a Fly Girl romper with gold chain straps).
We're not the only ones excited about the Williamsburg newcomer. Catbird tweeted this belfie to welcome Courtshop to the neighborhood.
A ringing endorsement, if we ever saw one.
