I met up with Wendy, a dear friend of mine, last week at 1020 Post in Darien. After some good food and lots of laughs, we walked out onto the Post Road and spotted Wendy’s Closet.
Slightly different than my friend Wendy’s closet, this store was filled with bright, new spring merchandise just waiting to be purchased and hung in someone else’s closet.
Owner, Wendy Hopkins, opened her Darien shop, also at 1020 Post Rd, about 2 months ago.
(She also owns 2 other stores by the same name – one in Greenwich and the other in Bedford, NY.)
A native of New Orleans, this Rowayton resident has added more style to downtown Darien with collections of contemporary clothing, jewelry, belts and scarves from Lilla P, Tyler Boe, Christopher Fischer cashmere, Island Company resort wear, Red Engine and GOLDSIGN jeans by Adriano Goldschmied (formerly of AG Jeans) and many more.
So next time you’re grabbing a bite at Panera Bread or seeing a movie at the Darien Playhouse, stop by to find a special piece or two for your closet from Wendy’s Closet.
