Perfume pendants and East End T-shirts
Brooklyn may be trendy. Brooklyn may be hot. But very few would go so far as to say Brooklyn smells good. But jewelry designer (and Brooklyn native) Katrina LaPenne is looking to change that, joining forces with a Brooklyn perfumer to create Katrina LaPenne X MCMC Fragrances, $325. The line boasts sterling silver lockets that encase solid perfumes (rose, lilac and moonflower, three of the borough's most popular flowers, says LaPenne); at katrinalapenne.com.
East End T's
Looking to snoop around the East End to see where the jet set chillax? Now's the time, when fortresslike shrubs are bare and you can peer in. Or feel like an insider in Local Knit's cotton tees, $24, featuring locals' fave hangouts in towns across the country. The website reads like a travelogue, with info on places like the Montauket Hotel, a Montauk gem with "some of the best sunset views on Long Island"; at localknit.com.
