One of my favorite hobbies is finding boutiques with perfectly curated selections of my favorite brands. And it is even better when they have online outlets to shop too. About 4 years ago I was introduced to Otte by one of my New York besties and of course, I was instantly hooked. The boutique has actually been opened since 1999 and has continued to evolve and expand over the years. Not only do they carry my favorite brands, but Kay Lee, the founder of Otte created her own line of classic, affordable silk pieces when she realized they were missing from the marketplace. GENIUS.
When I was in New York last month I had the pleasure of meeting Rose at the Otte Nolita store to find out the inside scoop on the brand and the stores’ success. The shop is located in the most darling neighborhood and close to one of my favorite lunch spots, Toast. Brands like Kenzo, Theory, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and A.L.C. filled the racks with tables in the center of the store holding some of Falls lustworthy trends. My absolute favorite was the pale pink and grey filled table, with cool-girl kicks and amazing Lionette NY jewels. The store carries the perfect mix of feminine and rocker-chic pieces, and oh, the amazing collection of dainty gold jewelry. Dana Rebecca, EF Collection, Jennifer Zeuner are amongst some of my favorite pieces I tried on. The shop gals were super sweet and made me feel like a kid in a candy store; letting me try on all of the new fall pieces.
If you are in New York or just visiting, be sure to stop by one of Otte’s multiple locations in the city! Or if not, they have the most amazing collection of brands and easy to navigate online store.
