Happy Birthday Brick Lane

Yes today - the day of "Kiss me I'm Irish" and green beer is also the birthday if your favorite little British clothing source!

Today Brick Lane turns 3 years old and to celebrate I am working late this evening to have new stock in the store photographed so that this week we can upload new merchandise on the online boutique for everyone!

In honor of St. Patricks Day - this weekend I was fortnate enough to be able to attend a cooking exhibition in Culver City of The Healthy Irishman! Wait - Irish food = healthy, you say? Can it be so? I kid you not my friends it is true and possible - so check out the Healthy Irishman's blog (which is always linked on our site under Blogs We Love) for great recipes and fun Irish fare!

So go out and have a cocktail in celebration of St. Patty's and if you think of it - toast Brick Lane for turning 3 today!

Be Green and in Fashion

It's in fashion to be green.....

Did you know that worldwide it is estimated that 500 billion plastic bags are used and discarded!!!

Single use plastic bags made of HDPE remain in the environment for up to approx 1000 years. Over 100,000 birds, whales, seals and turtles are killed by plastic rubbish every year.

Scary thoughts huh? So why not carry a packable tote around with you so you can say NO to plastic bags for small items as you run about your day?

Billy Bag is another company making these fun and fashionable lightweight packable Eco-totes to throw in your purse, gym bag, car, bike basket - you name it! Small pouches that un-zip to these fresh and fun cotton print re-usable totes!

These fun, fashionable and environment friendly bags are available at our shop Brick Lane in Venice, CA and will soon be available to buy in our on-line boutique.

Get yours today and feel good about a purchase that will help minimize your impact on the environment (and it doesn't hurt that you'll look fashionable as well!)

Cheers Luvs

Jodie Kidd at Brick Lane

Today we had a segment of the UK Show Fashion Avenue shot here at Brick Lane. They are doing a whole show on Abbot Kinney - which is lovely as I have been informed it will begin airing in the US this year!

The beautiful model Jodie Kidd is the host of Fashion Avenue and her celebrity co-host is model Lydia Hearst (of the Hearst Family)

They told me that so far my shop was their favorite - the bit of British Fashion made them feel quite at home - enough to shop quite a bit themselves.

I must say that dealing with "celebrities" is not always as much fun as it would seem - but these 2 ladies were so incredibly warm, down-to-earth and pleasant to work with (and I am not just saying that because they loved my shop so). It was a delight to have them in the shop and I can't wait to get the DVD of the show when it is complete!
