Lovely Liberty

While at Looc, we steer clear of prints, classic ones are not only welcomed, but adored. This season's Liberty prints have left us all nostalgic with high hopes for this fabric to stick around for awhile...and with its 1875 stamped birth year, we think it just might.

Nili Lotan Bio

Looc has carried Nili Lotan since its opening in 2007. The line has been a staple and a very important factor in our aesthetic. This is her bio to get you a little obsessed and is taken straight from the website, (definitely worth checking out).

Since 1980, Nili Lotan has worked in New York in Senior Design Director positions at leading fashion companies including Nautica and Ralph Lauren. She has been the creative inspiration and conceptual leader for a diverse range of women's fashion. Prior to her arrival in the United States, she served for two years in the Israeli Air Force and graduated from Shenkar Fashion Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel. Nili Lotan's designs often combine industrial and utilitarian elements. They are clean and classic, cultivating a sensibility that is both, strong and feminine. Her varied life and professional experiences are the foundation for her unique creative approach.

Thank you, Nili, for being both, strong and feminine.

Christina Lehr Spring is here!

Christina Lehr's Spring is here at Looc and I'm not kidding when I say, I had to change my outfit when I opened up the box! I will hopefully get a chance to post some pics in the next day or two, but for now - think quilted sweatshirt cardigans with wooden buttons to throw on over jeans and a tee in these transitional weather months, vintage white cotton lace vests to layer with simple shirt dresses and perfect cloth-covered-buttoned henleys in charcoals, blacks and whites... I'm so happy.

Looc's Itty-Bitty-Mini Guide to NYC

Ok, it's not exactly a guide, but while we're on the topic of 'city must-sees and to-do's', I thought I'd tell you about a few post-worthy stops during my buying trip for Fall 09. Here they are by category:

See. (or Shop)

Matthew Williamson
415 West 14th Street
New York NY 10014

Tel: +1 212 255 9881

Matthew Williamson's brand new store opened last week in the Meatpacking District. It neighbors Stella McCartney (my dream wardrobe) and Jeffrey's (where I spotted Jason Wu) and faces DVF. Anyway, this store is BEYOND beautiful. My jaw literally dropped while walking through it with every new corner, every new piece of clothing being more ridiculously cool than the last. And that is pretty much what he is - ridiculously cool. The back of the store opens up to this glassed-in jungle oasis of greenery where mannequins are almost hiding and lucky enough to be wearing his pieces of lucky! Also, be sure not to miss the ladies' room (my favorite part of the store) where an emerald-green glass chandelier and gorgeous Venetian glass mirror is surrounded by wallpapered iconic fashion images. Here are a couple pics I shot quickly before I was told not to take them. Oops....I really couldn't help myself. They DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, come close to showing its untouched extraordinariness.

(sorry about the flash in that one - I was rushing)


61 Delancey Street
New York, NY 10002

Tel: +1 212.219.7633

This Lower East Side vintage store is such a gem. The tiny space houses a TON of designer and non-designer vintage clothing, bags, jewelry, hats, etc. and I think I would have been happy taking home any one of them. I fell in love with a great Zach Carr black belted-jacket and wound up buying it. There are some rarer pieces that, of course, get a little pricey, but for the most part, a very affordable, and well-edited store. Some pics...


Kingswood Restaurant

121 West 10th Street

New York, NY 10011


This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend so had expected something great, but after actually experiencing it, I wanted to immediately transplant it right up to a South End side street. For now, I will settle for being an irregular there. I went with my husband which lended itself to be a great date place, but it could work for a girls' night out, boys' night out, just drinks, you name it. While our waitress wasn't the friendliest, her attitude was blurred by the perfect wine, meal and atmosphere. The decor is phenom with no detail being overlooked.

This is the only pic I took, (I was too busy enjoying it!)... sorry.
