It was a rainy morning today and I’d been wanting to buy this Houston Canvas bag I’d seen on Instagram for a while now. So, I decided it would be a good day for shopping. I headed over to Brooke Feather on West Gray Street in Houston.
When I arrived I was greeted by the owner of the boutique, Brook. She and her team were so gracious and attentive. They even helped me photograph the store. I absolutely love the clothing line. It’s a very upscale sort of “SoHo” collection of comfortable clothing and accessories for women. The decor was relaxing, yet sophisticated. Located in a somewhat unassuming strip mall of stores in the heart of River Oaks. Oh and it is conveniently next to Talbots (my favorite). I’ll save that story for another time. This shopping area has a collection of wonderful boutiques as well as high-end chain retailers. So, let’s get back to the reason I went there. The tote! Yes that
Houston tote bag that had been calling my name since I arrived here in December. I’d seen it in a newcomers guide to Houston and knew I had to have it. Several months went by and then I spotted it on Instagram. I knew it was meant to be! Brooke Feather is the only place in all of Houston where you can buy this. Although they don’t have an online shop, you can call them and they’ll be happy to ship one, or two, for you. Their number is 713.520.0211. You can also email Brooke, INFO@BROOKEFEATHER.COM.
Being the shopper that I am, I couldn’t just leave with that one item.
I spent time browsing the racks and found an adorable tee by Amo that said “Tomboy.” It made me think of my nineteen year-old daughter. I may have to send that to her at college.
It’s a slouchy AMO tee with shredded holes and printed ‘Tomboy’ lettering. 100% cotton and the best part is that it’s Made in the USA.
When I was at the checkout chatting with Brooke, I noticed this amazing perfume by Maison Louis Marie. It’s called Cassis. The high notes are, of course, Cassis, Bergamot and black pepper. The mid note is white rose and the base is Oakmoss, Musk and Tonka. It is such a refreshing, crisp, clean smell. I couldn’t help myself. I had to buy it. It was conveniently at the cash-wrap. I’m always picking something extra when I checkout. Smart upselling!
The next time you’re in Houston, it is completely worth the trip over to Brooke Feather located at 2020 West Gray Street in Houston. What a wonderful morning.
