IMG_0069As the girls and I shopped along Worth Avenue we happened upon a charming little alcove, where we fell in love with ALL that was inside. D. Dream Altalier, tucked neatly behind Worth on Via Minzer is a treasure trove of fabulous finds. Ozan Ozdemir meets us at the door of his charming shop where he sells designs by his lovely wife Duygu.IMG_0048

Enthusiastic about his wife’s creations, Ozan offered that anything in the shop could be made to order.  So, I indulged by ordering two tunics made especially for summer cocktails by the pool.

Of course, all three of us purchased copious amounts of the lovely jewelry. Now that I am home, I am tempted to buy more online!
