I seem to spend quite a bit of time driving on Route 1. Whether its meeting with a client, buying some vegetables or grabbing a quick mocha, my errands have me gravitating towards this stretch of roadway.
Most times I take a direct path to my destination without taking notice of too many places or happenings on the way.
But today was different…
I made a concerted effort to stop at a store that I’ve been meaning to check out since it opened 6 months ago.
Located at 126 Boston Post Road (Rt 1) in Darien, this new addition to the block is the accomplishment of Lindsay Westbrook, a local woman with a long standing desire to start her own store.
The space is simple and effortless as are many of the styles she offers. You’ll find premium denims by DL196, color filled dresses by Francis and from Plenty by Tracey Reese, as well as soft, silk blouses from Madison Marcus. Scarves, bags, belts and jewelry are merchandised between wonderful watercolors on canvas throughout the store.
I get the feeling I’ll soon be making a direct path towards this new destination…
next time I’m on Route 1.
