If you want to look and smell fresh for a new year of classes, better get your butt in gear: Back-to-school essentials at Pine Street's Omoi Zakka Shop are already flying out the door, probably because us olds are similarly powerless against the allure of leopard print. Here, Omoi owner Liz Sieber weighs in on her store's top sellers:
We love the feeling of a fresh start that back-to-school season brings. Maybe it's just an excuse to cop a few new accessories to deal with the change in weather, but we love how these three small treats can have a big impact on our day. Things Ahead from our best-selling fragrance collection by West Third Brand pairs notes of oakmoss and amber with citrus and sage, while Palomino's Blackwing pencil collection is an inexpensive way to inspire a bit of creativity at your desk. Carry it all in Baggu's new-for-fall leopard print backpack that adds some personality to an otherwise simple design. They're going quick though; we sold three before they even made it onto the display!
