Store Opening: Kat Burki

Kat Burki’s Westport shop has all the goods

I dropped by the opening of Kat Burki’s Westport shop last week to check out the offerings. The store is light-filled and luxurious, with everything from cashmere throws to robes to jewelry. But although there were lots of other fabulous things to touch and try on, I was drawn to the wall of lotions, soaps, and candles. With scents like Tuberose (Burki’s favorite), Lavender Lightly and Avocado & Cucumber, I couldn’t help but smell all of them. I can imagine myself in a bubble bath surrounded by any one of these scents, and I believe that is just what Burki (pictured left in her store) wants her customers to do. These are small indulgences—a pretty-smelling soap, a super-soft blanket—but they make you feel pretty and pampered, and who doesn’t want a little bit of that? See the store at 175 Post Road West, Westport, (203) 222-1700, or visit the website at
