Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

(But seriously, did you try Little Wayla?!?)

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings. (J.W.v.Goethe)
Forgive me if I sound like a preaching super mom, however I think this wonderful quote applies not only to parents but to life itself. Hopefully you had a chance to connect to your roots this summer, and maybe spread your wings to a new destination as well. What made me think about roots was that moment we found out that we were selected one of America's coolest stores again. It feels like a lifetime ago that our first location made the podium...we spread our wings and opened a bigger store, without having to leave our roots. So here we are still in the LES, witnessing growth all over the place. Read on for more info about a new organic rooftop farm, my new fav. lunch spot, a cool new dive bar (not an oxymoron in my book!) and brand new adornments from yours, truly ;)
Essex Crossing opens its own organic farm
A new farm, now among the largest in the borough, just launched at the Essex Crossing megaproject right around the corner in the Lower East Side. Located on the sixth floor of The Essex at 125 Essex Street, the quarter-acre farm will be run by Project EATS—a nonprofit that operates farms across the city—and will grow organic carrots, radishes, beets, turnips, and baby greens, such as kale, mustards, and arugula. Find out more at curbed NY.
Julie Vos, Luna earrings - $68
Julie Vos' creations can't deny the influence architecture has on the designs. These hoops are sporting sleek lines and a glossy finish - minimal weight at a maximum impact. Designed and handcrafted to the standards of fine jewelry.
Justin Theroux adds a dive bar to the Lower East Side nightscape
A dive bar can't be made - it is a title that has to be earned, some say. Justin Theroux spread his own big wings on his mission to proof the naysayers wrong, and while it might be true that this bar won't qualify for the deepest of watering holes in the Western hemisphere, we are still happy to welcome a new addition to NYC's finest nightlife scene. Read on here.
Yaf Sparkle, Lapis Lazuli bracelet - $245
Dingling and dangling like a happy clam, this Lapis Lazuli gemstone bracelet was made for a lightweight experience of gemstone abundance.
Wayla's has a small sister AND IT's SO GOOOOOD!
When Erika Chou and Tom Naumsuwan opened Wayla, a Thai restaurant with a garden on Forsyth Street three months ago, they spread their wings twofold, preparing a second storefront upstairs for a takeout shop. Little Wayla is now open and I am in love!!!! First of all, the hospitality stands out and that already opens the door to my heart. The food?! Addictive!!! Oh and this is not me praising my find, as several customers came in and said YOU NEED TO GO! Glad I did ;)  Find Little Wayla's NYTimes article here and be warned they close at 4pm sharp!
"Coolest Store" competition 2019
After coming in third with our first location in 2016, we are so grateful to find ourselves in the rankings again, this time honoring our new location. Thank YOU for all the inspiration, encouragement and joy you bring to our oasis of adornment and all the support that means for the ASB Foundation!! Here's to you and your impeccable taste ;) Live in pleasure!
Julie Vos, Crescent Statement earrings - $155
Lightly hammered interlocking circles with small Pearl, Zirkon or Turquoise accents. Gentle motion in a harmonic female design.
Julie Vos, Byzantine Ring - $165
Designed in New York, while daydreaming of the abundance and beauty of wayyy back Constantinople. Oval rose cut end caps accented with teardrop faceted top Stone and tiny Pearls. Love the choice of colors!
Let's not forget that men need adornments too ;) How about a rock solid Sterling Silver bracelet with tons of character, fresh off John Varvatos' drawing board.
Thank you all who came to our Manhattanhenge party...here's a quick recap of this wonderful evening - let's do it again soon ;)
