Welcome Back Beautiful

Welcome Back Beautiful

The Rose Reading Room in the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue has finally reopened its huge ornate doors after being closed for restorations the past couple years. Though this room reminds me of an overly romanticizing new "New Yorker", fresh faced, wide eyed, and completely lonely version of ...

Book Club: Our Favorites' Favorites

Book Club: Our Favorites' Favorites

During the waning days of summer, I start to ponder on my fall reading list. Imagery of myself cozy on the couch with some hot tea, wearing cashmere shorts, burning a favorite fall scent and a heavy musky hard cover fill in my head. (Reality- I'm probably on the bus, covered in cat hair and coffee s ...

Book Club: Goodbye to All That

Book Club: Goodbye to All That

Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York was a perfect beginning of Fall read. I dare say anything that uses Joan Didion as a muse would be. I want to make it clear that none of us have the intention of leaving our cozy nook of Williamsburg anytime soon (or like ever), but reading ...

Moonsong by our Songbird

Moonsong by our Songbird

One of the amazing things about working at Catbird is being around beautiful, talented, and inspiring women. One of them being Ms. Victoria Reed. Her new music video for "Moonsong" just graced us with its presence and I'll tell you a secret... more than a couple Birdettes are in it. Her sultry ...

Desert Sharks

Our very own, Stephanie, along with her stone cold fox bandmates just released a super bad ass EP today. While we embarrass her by blaring it in the store (and on our iPods on the train), you should give it a listen as well. Template Hair, released via Manimal Records, is available here&nb ...

Nice to Meet You

Nice to Meet You

Our tiny neighborhood seems to be different everyday. New coffee shops, clothing stores, movie sets, you name it. We love it, but are reading this book just in case.
