Pop Up For Dreamers

We’re so excited to be working with Abbi and Jo again for their next Pop-Up for Dreamers event. We got a chance to interview the Abbi and get a little insight on what makes them tick and how this event came to be. Read on for more info!

Rima: Tell us a little about how Pop-Up for Dreamers came to be. How did the two of you meet and what inspired the idea?

Abbi: We met in 2011 when Jo began carrying Abbi’s jewelry line (Brooklyn Heavy Metal) in her Nolita boutique Alibi NYC. Soon we were participating in lots of holiday markets together. After doing shows for a few years and never feeling like they were the right fit for our lines, we decided we should just do it ourselves! We wanted to create a higher end holiday shop that catered more specifically to our clientele that felt more like a boutique than a holiday market or pop-up. The holidays can be crazy so we wanted something smaller and low-key with just a few other emerging designers who we loved and felt shared a similar aesthetic as well as a shared level of importance to being made in NYC. We had such a positive experience meeting new designers and collaborating/working with other businesses after our holiday pop-up that we decided we should keep up the momentum!

Rima: We at bkstyled love your commitment to local designers. Can you tell us a bit about your selection process for your pop-up events? How can other Brooklyn designers get involved?

Abbi: At first we reached out to friends and friends of friends and ended up with a pretty amazing group of women who make everything from lip balm, cards, and candles to hats, bags, and clothes. Since we both have our own jewelry lines (Jo with Alibi NYC and Abbi with Brooklyn Heavy Metal), we haven’t been taking on jewelry designers as of yet since we want to keep an even mix of clothing and accessories with a bit of beauty and home. After our first pop-up we realized just how many other amazing designers were out there and began getting contacted by designers who wanted to be involved via Facebook and Instagram. We did a lot more scouting this round and discovered even more designers who we had either heard of, but didn’t realize were local, or who we hadn’t heard of and absolutely loved! If we had to break down the criteria of what we’re looking for, we want designers and companies that are handmade in NYC. We are looking for higher-end products with a medium-to-high price point. Aesthetically we are drawn to things that have a level of elegant simplicity, but as they say the devil is in the details, which is why we also like a little edge as well. The shop is not driven by labels or trends but by the wish to create a space where our customers can discover something new, unique, and hand-made. Any designers interested in participating in future pop-ups can email us at popupfordreamers@gmail.com with a link to their website, social media links, and a line sheet/lookbook. We’re always looking for new Dreamers!

Rima: Which designers are you working with this round?

Abbi: We have an amazing group of designers that we are really excited about. Alessandra Rivera makes beautiful hand-made hats and can do custom pieces as well. BrooklynThread, a line of hand-made home jewels. Many pieces are one-of-a-kind since many of the pieces are hand-crafted from stones, crystals, and vintage pieces. H Fredriksson, a line of amazing sustainably-produced clothing out of original fabric prints created from the designer’s photographs and drawings. Karie Laks‘ collection is vintage-inspired and feminine with a sexy edge. Mad Brooklyn, a line of sculptural, handmade candles that reflect the designer’s somewhat surprising inner cryptic fascinations. Stewart & Claire‘s lip balms and scrubs were created by a former editor at Food & Wine who combines her passion for food and natural beauty products into a wonderful collection of lip products. Last but not least we will be carrying a small selection of sunglasses from Selima Optique. Selima is an exception to the rule since her frames are made in France. However, Selima is definitely a New York celebrity in her own right and Selima Optique is based in New York and has been for many years. Then, of course, we will be carrying our jewelry lines Alibi NYC and Brooklyn Heavy Metal as well.

Rima: What can our readers look forward to at your May pop-up event? Any special events planned?

Abbi: We officially open May 2nd with a launch party from 6-10 p.m. featuring small bites by El Rey, photo booth by bkstyled, gift bags for our first 35 guests with goodies from Manic Panic, MonicaHues, and Suite 303. May 3rd is “Sunday Bloody Sunday” with Santa Muerte Hot Sauce and Industry Standard Vodka. May 8th is “Freaky Friday” with special guests Las Brujas and palm readings by the founder of the Tarot Society. May 10th is “Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea” featuring a tasting and custom blending session with Té NYC. May 12th is “Tiki Tuesday” with Fort Defiance and Tirado Rum, May 14th is “Blow Me!” with a stylist from Suite 303 Salon doing blow outs and styling. May 16th and 17th is “Manicures and Mimosas” with Lady Fancy Nails, who will be booking appointments ahead of time, and nail decals by MonicaHues.

Rima: New York has become very saturated by pop-up shops over the last couple of years. What is Pop-Up for Dreamers doing to differentiate itself from all the others?

Abbi: “Pop-up” has definitely become a buzzword, especially in New York. Pop-Up for Dreamers is more than just a pop-up for us though. Besides being a means of supporting, promoting, and exhibiting locally-based emerging designers and companies, we are working to build connections and relationships with each pop-up to help one another succeed. New York is thriving with talented and driven creative people. Sadly with areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn becoming increasingly expensive and rents going through the roof for apartments and retail spaces alike, neighborhoods that were once full of small independent boutiques are being taken over by large chain stores now resembling high-end outdoor strip malls. As a small designer/business it is nearly impossible to stand up against large franchises with huge budgets and Pop-Up for Dreamers is trying to create a remedy for just that! We want to create a space that feels like a boutique, not a pop-up.

Rima: Any plans to host an event in Brooklyn this summer?

Abbi: Since we’re still “emerging” ourselves, one of our main criteria when searching for a venue is a good window and foot traffic! We have worked primarily with miLES when it comes to finding locations and had a great experience working with them. However their main territory is the LES. It would be amazing to do an event in Brooklyn soon, especially since many of our designers are based there.


It’s finally time to start making that transition from puffy coats to spring-friendly layers. As excited as we are about breaking out our open-toe shoes and summer dresses, let’s be smart this year and dress for the weather we actually have in Brooklyn this time of year–chilly, windy, rainy, and sometimes, a bit of very welcome sunshine. Let these illustrations by Dena Cooper lead the way and don’t worry, it won’t be long until we’re complaining about the heat and wishing for April breezes again.

Hope to see you all there!


ZOETIK first came up on bkstyled’s radar during a cocktail party hosted by the New York Distilling Co. back in May. The stylish Vivienne So was behind me in line for the crêpe truck and we decided to do a little write-up on her metallic look for the blog. It turned out she was wearing jewelry from her own line, a collaborative project called ZOETIK she works on with jewelry designer Jason Choi. Since then, our guest style writer Aileen Olmedo was spotted wearing ZOETIK at New York Fashion Week and it seemed like it was time for us to get to know them a little better. Read on for Aileen’s interview with Vivienne and Jason.

Fashion Week White Zoetik

Aileen Olmedo: Zoetik is still fairly new. For you and your partner, what was the tipping point in creating the brand?

Jason Choi: For me it was realizing that I had a chance to make a difference with all the relationships I built throughout my years on the manufacturing/business side of the industry.

Vivienne So: Knowing about the crazy markups and middlemen involved in the industry, we knew we could offer something better than what was available in the market. I have sensitive skin and have always had problems with costume jewelry. So being hypoallergenic, as well as stylish and affordable, became an important pillar for us.

Aileen Olmedo New York Fashion Week

AO: The name has a great zing to it, what’s the meaning behind the name?

JC/VS: ZOETIK comes from the greek root “zoe” which means “pertaining to life.” We believe that our jewelry can go with every part of your life. The ZOETIK woman leads an active lifestyle!

AO: I love the “Jewelry for a Cause” collection for Restore NYC. For those who don’t know about their organization, would you like to explain your collaboration with the nonprofit?

JC/VS: Restore NYC is an amazing organization here in New York that helps rebuild the lives of sex trafficking victims. They create safe houses for these women whose lives have been destroyed by modern-day slavery and help them get back on their feet through different programs. We knew immediately that this was something we needed to support, since most people don’t realize that sex trafficking is happening right here in New York. The collection we created for Restore NYC reflects their message but also holds special meaning for anyone going through a tough time. The Lionness stands for empowerment/strength, Pearl for rebirth, Cactus Flower for perseverance, and the Hamsa Hand for protection. A percentage of proceeds from every piece sold goes to Restore NYC.

Zoetik Rings

AO: Let’s play favorites. What pieces have you been wearing over and over from ZOETIK?

JC: Not gonna lie, the cubic zirconia ring. Many people have walked in on me wearing it and admiring it.

VS: Haha! It’s a pretty epic ring–it’s cut from solid cubic zirconia. I don’t leave home without my Worn Gold Crystal Bangle, one or two stacking bracelets (like the Gold Chain and the Gold Interlink), and a few rings. I’ve been wearing the Gold Arrow Outline Rings on three fingers for a more ladylike version of brass knuckles.

AO: Show us your Brooklyn pride, what are your top three spots in the borough?

JC: In no particular order: Pies ‘n’ Thighs, Royal Palms Shuffleboard, and the Brooklyn Brewery.

VS: Prospect Park–I love riding around the park in the Fall. Brooklyn Crab–It’s delicious and always fun. Ba’sik–They make great cocktails and it’s the perfect spot to cozy up with friends in the winter.

Thanks for reading!

Trust me, I’m a professional. Your skin’s transition from summer to fall is the single most crucial of the year. Week after week of moisture-zapping heat, sweat, and sun have likely congested your pores and slowed your skin’s ability to repair, rejuvenate, and breathe. This is the best time for a professional facial, especially if you’re intent on rocking the “no-makeup” makeup look. A professional will safely clean out your pores, remove dead skin dullness, and replenish skin with the moisture and minerals it’s thirsty for. Want to bring the spa treatment home? Check out this Brooklyn-centric skin care guide I put together after putting a dozen brands to the test. While there were many fantastic products sent in by many great Brooklyn-makers, I will just be mentioning the best of the best in this post.

Armour V Lip Gloss1. Armour Beauty: Armour V Lip Gloss

Lipgloss with staying power that’s actually good for your lips? Yes, please. After emails back and forth with founder Theo Kogan (in which prancersizing was mentioned), I became “jump up and down” excited for the arrival of her lip glosses. Perfecting the pouts of eco-glammy models and celebs who don’t skimp on glamour but do skip the grody stuff like parabens and animal testing, these glosses are a go-to. When the package arrived, my staff and I dove in like it was Festivus. Amazingly, there was a shade that each one of us felt drawn to and flattered our different skin tones. Oh, and don’t be fooled by the gentle, vegan ingredients, this gloss is rock-n-roll. She’s got staying power. The texture is on the thicker side, think “melted lipstick,” which might explain it’s super-hydrating benefits too. I’ve been wearing “Diana” everyday like it was my job.

Bar Soap Brooklyn2. Brooklyn Bar Soap: The Equilateral: Black Gold

The packaging of these triangular soaps alone made me a bit weak in the knees. The color combinations, perfect.  I used what I thought was the coolest looking of the soaps on my face and body. Turns out it was made using activated charcoal and gold metallic mica. Pardon? After getting over the fact that I had to disrupt the gorgeous packaging, I lathered up, rinsed, and repeated. And repeated. What on earth was that delicious scent wafting through the steam? Soap. It was soap that smelled like soap. It was monumentally satisfying. I mean, when is the last time you used a cleanser or body wash that didn’t smell like an orange or a coconut? Brooklyn Bar Soap smells like soap, in the best way. These Brooklyn bars also rinse nice and clean because seriously? Eff residue, it dulls. I also tried the ” Morning Breeze” body scrub which would be great for those with sensitive skin looking for a less abrasive abrasion. I don’t have to tell you about the smell, right?

jiva-apoha-sundara-handsome-face3. Jiva-Apoha: Body Oil/ Face Oils

I apply Jiva-Apoha oils several times a day, not because I need to but because I love them. Founder Angela Shore is so passionate and meticulous about what goes into her therapeutic blends that she has travelled the world to explore, learn, and source ingredients. The result is truly magical. A healer, using an Ayurvedic base with shamanic techniques, Angela’s clients began to request the healing oils that they were treated with during their sessions. Each one of these sacred blends feels like a special gift, turning your self-care ritual into a true honoring of yourself. Packaged in handmade medicine bags, each amber glass bottle is beautifully adorned with Jiva Apoha’s signature feather and is like liquid love for your skin. I went to dinner at a friend’s home and passed the oils around and let’s just say the neighbors sure heard some moaning that evening. Comments like “It smells like my father’s beautiful home in Switzerland” and “I am going to drink this” were the tip of the iceberg. We marveled at how intrinsically unique each scent was, like each had a story. Every night I have been using Sundara {Handsome} Face Oil on my face, and each morning I am amazed. My skin feels like velvet and I am pretty sure that the aromatherapeutic properties have been responsible for my sweet dreams.

moon-bloom-energetic-skincare4. Moon and Bloom: Energetic Skincare

Using flower essence blends to compliment her clinical training, Heidi created Illumine Face Oil and practices what she calls “Integrative and Flower Essence Therapy.” Taken internally or applied topically, flower essences are said to provide healing using the patients subtle energy field, as acupuncture and homeopathy do. Using this essential oil/flower essence blend made me feel like I’d just fallen into a fresh garden of flowers. I not only applied the serum to my skin, I used it as aromatherapy in the morning. It’s rich density and absorbability did wonders on my extra dry spots.

SkinnySkinny Organic Anti Acne Treament5. SkinnySkinny

I was very excited to have SkinnySkinny arrive and to see the care that went into the presentation. Someone is proud of their product, and rightly so. A certified aromatherapist and esthetician, founder Clara Williams started by making her first soap for her mom. A sufferer of chronic acne, nothing was working to clear up her skin so she created her own line packed with healing ingredients. My package was an A-Z acne clearing protocol from cleanser to serum. Not an acne sufferer myself, I asked my esthetician to incorporate the products into her acne prescription facials. Many products contained rosemary (a powerful anti-bacterial) and soothing essentials, a winning combination. The feedback from the facial room was a rave. The products were superbly blended for maximum penetration and left skin “squeaky clean” and yet, not stripped bare. Our acneic clients felt extra pampered during facials that are often very clinical.

Soapwalla Deodorant Cream6. Soapwalla: Deodorant Cream

In a sentence: This cream is the first and only natural deodorant that I’ve used that works for me.

SW Basics Toner7. S.W. Basics: Toner

I could talk to you about the importance of toning all day. Not only does it pick-up what your cleanser left behind, it rebalances your skin’s PH (the balance of acids and alkalines in your skins barrier). Too much acid can lead to breakouts. Too much alkaline can lead to dry skin, even eczema. S.W. Basics Toner stinks, unless you find the scent of apple cider vinegar to be pleasing. It’s five simple ingredients will make you think “I could make this” but guess what? You didn’t. This blend of ACV and essential oils is hands down the best toner I have ever used. My pores are minuscule, and for a person plagued with blackheads, I can see them a bit less these days. This stinky stuff should be a skincare staple for anyone.

The next time you shop, remember that shopping local means keeping money within your local economy and saves energy. Spa-ing local will save you 20% when you book a Clarifying Facial at Tres Belle Spa now through October 31st.

Happy Fall, Brooklynites!

    Great post as always, Allison! I went out and bought the SkinnySkinny serum as soon as I finished reading this! XOXOReplyCancel


Summer is winding down and for many of us (myself included) it’s time to get back to school. I’ve put together a list of essentials for making the transition a little easier. First on the list is Tattly‘s New York Set. All of Tattly‘s temporary tattoos are fun but this set is my personal favorite. Sending your little one off to kindergarten this year? These are great for kids too!

Second is Knot & Bow‘s Me & You Pencil Set. These are the kind of pencil nubs you won’t want to throw away after having used them all semester. And they help to solve the mystery of who stole your pencil…

Third is bkstyled‘s Recycled Fabric Notebook. I love carrying around small notebooks throughout the school year. I can throw them into my purse, backpack, or even pockets! It just makes it easier for me to write any ideas that come to mind or to keep track of all of my homework.

Fourth on the list is BAGGU‘s backpack. These bags come in so many colors and with summer coming to an end I feel like having a nice bright bag to remind me of sunnier days. I picked one up in poppy for myself (see picture below by Rima Brindamour) and am loving the way it effortlessly works with just about everything I wear.

Fifth on this back to school list is BAGGU‘s Small 3D Zip. While this can be used for so many things, I see this being a perfect pencil-case to keep all of your school supplies tidy.

    I love Baggu. I have baggus tucked into baggus.ReplyCancel


I’d like to introduce the readers of bkstyled to Pamela Tietze, the creator of h0les, which you may have seen worn by Lady Gaga last summer. H0les started as an interesting experiment and the trendy eyewear is now being sold all over the world. I first met Pam when she donated some of her prism glasses to a set I was designing last year. Trying on a pair of her unique glasses was like stepping into a colorful dream world. The room I was standing in was reflected hundreds of times in a range of pastel colors. It’s a pretty fantastic experience.

Pam was kind enough to invite us over for a home tour last month, and I’m excited to share her home with you today. To me, Pam’s apartment isn’t so different from her glasses. It really reflects her creativity and quirky design aesthetic. You definitely leave Brooklyn the second you walk in. There’s a lot of light, but there is still mystery. Every item in her home has a story and while each and every thing is so different from the next, nothing seems out of place.


One item that stands out in her living room is a ceramic bulldog that Pam found abandoned on the side of the road. Since she’s adopted him, people have always had a strange interest in him. For instance, while hosting a party in her home a while back, a group of men decided to pick him up and drop him as if he were a pillow or made of rubber (hence the chipped ear). Perhaps they thought he could bounce?


The focal point of her living room is an enormous poster of Elvis hung above a rainbow-painted futon. Pam painted the futon herself as part of a set design commission for an expo. She painted all sorts of things including furniture, carpets, and decor. In the end, she ended up taking most of the items she colorfully decorated home and each piece has integrated nicely into her space.


Pam acquired her Elvis poster when passing by a grocery store which was going out of business in Chicago. The grocery store manager told her she could take anything she wanted. Inside she found two of these enormous Elvis posters in the grocery’s basement. She grabbed one and carried it home on her back. It has been with her ever since, even surviving the move from Chicago to New York City.


My favorite part of Pam’s apartment is the colors. She has somehow managed to create a colorful space without ever painting a single wall. She gets a good amount of light in her apartment, which creates an upbeat atmosphere and allows for many healthy plants. And while her apartment contains a collection of very different unique objects that Pam has come across over the years, it in no way looks cluttered or out of place.


Before Pam started h0les most of her work was done within the world of film and video. She studied business in school and was a successful art director in Chicago for years. After a while though, she realized that the art director world was not for her so she left behind a world of financial stability for the world of creative freedom.


H0les came into fruition after a breakup. Pam was playing around with the idea of creating a camera lens out of prisms and to get an idea for how it would look, she took a pair of expensive sunglasses her ex had given her and popped the lenses out. She replaced them with circular pieces of chandelier glass which, when held up to the eyes, created an effect that resembled a kaleidoscope.


After creating that first pair of glasses, it was her friends who pushed her to continue with the project. She played around with different frames and one night, while Pam was putting together a new pair, she thought of Lady Gaga and how perfectly they would suit her style. Little did she know that in a few months Gaga’s people would be contacting her for a custom pair. When they first contacted Pam, she thought it was a joke. Even while signing a bunch of legal forms at the Brooklyn Navy Yard she still couldn’t believe what was happening. Before she knew it, h0les was a success.

Pam recommends wearing her glasses while watching fireworks or for just sitting around on a sunny day. She says nothing beats the time she wore them while riding on the back of a motorcycle across the Manhattan Bridge at sunset. Beyond passive experiences like those, they can be pretty disorienting. Moving around in something that reflects everything around you hundreds of times is not easy. Personally, I’m saving up for a pair right now.

Before you jump the big bird to St. Mortiz, consider packing two of my favorite in-flight essentials to keep fresh and hydrated.

KEEP IT CLEAN: Giovanni Towlettes are organic, individually wrapped, anti-bacterial wonders. You never know if “Sal Monella” was the last person to touch that armrest. Jam packed with dreamy aroma-therapeutic oils, you’ll be off on a yummy head-trip before you even land.

KEEP IT SOFT: SkinCeuticals Hydrating Gel B5 is a lightweight gel that sinks deep into the skin and helps it hold water. Just a drip from your dropper will keep your face { kisser included} smooth and plump through-out your flight. You can pick up a bottle at Tres Belle Spa in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.

Allison Tray is the proud owner of Tres Belle Spa. Healthy skin is her personal obsession. Understanding health and skin as a complete package from diet to sun to genes, Allison wants to help everyone (woman, man, and in between) to have the glowing skin they deserve. She personally tests all the products and procedures she promotes in her spa.
