What happens when you take a gorgeous model and hit the streets of one of the coolest hoods in Brooklyn? Our Fall Lookbook, of course! We took gorgeous Barbara Ferreira (that’s @barbienox on Instagram, if you aren’t following her already!) out for two days of photo fun on the sunny sidewalks of Bushwick, and we have the inside scoop on the shoot. Turns out that it was as delicious as it was cool!
The City Chic “Floating Floral Tunic Dress” is made for a boho-chic stroll down Bogart Street, which is the main strip of the buzziest part of Bushwick. The famous pizzeria Roberta’s
is just around the corner from this shot, and we highly recommend the justly Famous Original pie.
In the mood for something cozier? Get classic French charm at Mominette
. If it’s as lovely outside as it was for us, head for the back garden in the Johnny Was “Domoto Velvet Jacket.” Or just grab a table by the bar and split some oysters and mussels with friends.
Ready for dessert? Stop into is the Raw & Fine chocolate factory
, which produces raw chocolate daily and has a retail area upfront with chocolate bars in unique flavors and chocolate spreads. The T-Bags Los Angeles “Abstract Print Jacquard Dress” added a pop of color to the industrial sleek space.
Time to hit Marie Fernandez park for some biking (our bike was the shoot stylist’s own), watching the local skateboarders practice tricks, and admiring the gorgeous brownstones that line the park. Easy jeans paired with printed tops like the City Chic “Arizona Wrap Top” are perfect for a day in the park.
Go for schoolgirl chic in a plaid BB Dakota “Rainer Dress” while perusing the paper backs at Molasses Books
. As you head back to the L Train stop at Morgan in the Karen Kane “Scuba Dress in Indigo Ink” and City Chic “Quilted Zip Jacket” for a night out, take in the stunning street art as you pass by bodegas bursting with flowers. If you stop at Circo’s Pastry Shop
on the way, you can get a mint gelato just like Barbie enjoyed!
