I could be biased, but I believe that of all the things that make our line unique, the ultimate factor is that it is made right here in our Brooklyn studio by an awesome set of local New York women. Did you ever wonder what went into making the elegant heart ring in your ring stack? New York City born and raised musician Jeanette knows because she just so happens to be one of the eighteen jewelers working out of our Williamsburg studio.
Jeanette and I spent Wednesday afternoon on a sunny bench outside of our favorite taco joint, La Superior. She brought along one of her most treasured items, an acoustic Takamine with photos of her mother pasted on the back, where they're close to her heart as she plays.
The phrase “achilles heel” might, by no choice of your own, bring to mind images of Brad Pitt circa 2004 when he had the best beach hair ever (and it’s so perfectly pulled back he’s got to have some butterfly clips in there, right?!) Or maybe it just stuck with me because the ...
If this is a problem for you too, please immediately take yourself to Achilles Heel in Greenpoint. You can swap out a creepy mental association of sweaty dudes covered with fake blood, speaking in terrible British accents (why?! Troy is in Turkey…) for a wood burning fire, Muffuletta, oysters, and a super beautiful bar with the coziest vibes. Full disclosure: the first time I went there, I wore light blue lipstick-- some things don’t change.
The space is gorgeous, tucked away on West Street, and no surprise that it’s another gem in the neighborhood by Andrew Tarlow and Kate Huling. The building itself has a ton of character - the last time it was open pre Achilles Heel was in 1960. All the moldings are original, and there’s a gnarly dagger hanging over the bar that they found taped underneath it when they first moved in - hell yes.
Two things all of the kittens love: jewels and boots! So when Loeffler Randall, the brand behind all of our favorite booties, asked us to style their Frankie Moto Boots while showing them around Catbird we obviously jumped at the opportunity!I gave the LR team a peek into a day at Catbird which ...
I gave the LR team a peek into a day at Catbird which means bouncing around Brooklyn from our storefront to our office on the south side of Williamsburg and everything in between! I was so happy to find out they are the perfect partner for a day of running around. Not only are they comfortable but they layer nicely with almost anything in your fall wardrobe from skinnies to tights or even with a rolled up pair of baggy boyfriend jeans! LR isn't joking around when they say the Frankie's are a go-anywhere, do-anything moto boot!
And an extra special treat from Loeffler Randall, 15% off their amazing shoe selection just for you with the code LRXCATBIRD now through Sunday! Shop Loeffler Randall.
After three consecutive, yearly bowling nights, we are practically professionals. That's right - I said consecutive. A few of us even broke one hundred. Awards were given (Most Mermaid-iest!), cocktails were rapidly inhaled - and dignity was relegated to a pretty low priority. I was a little too inv ...
After three consecutive, yearly bowling nights, we are practically professionals. That's right - I said consecutive. A few of us even broke one hundred. Awards were given (Most Mermaid-iest!), cocktails were rapidly inhaled - and dignity was relegated to a pretty low priority. I was a little too involved with both bowling and cheerleading to remember to take enough pics. Go Team Catbird!!!

It's no wonder that our buyer, Leigh, has some of the fanciest hands in Brooklyn. Her finger real estate is high and she only allows herself to buy and wear pieces with significant meaning, two of which were passed on to her from her mother (seen here, her bracelet and top ring on her center finger) ...
I've always wanted multiple ear piercings and since I've known Ash I've envied her collection of mis-matched stacks of studs that always seem to make perfect sense. Here she is wearing three of my most favorite earrings, a Lauren Wolf Blue Sapphire Stud ($176), Nancy Kraskin Dot Earring in Yell ...
