I'm off to New York City again and this time I have my trusty travel companion with me - my daughter Bella. It's a girls' week and we could not be more excited to hit some of New York's most well known boutiques. Yes...Bella likes to shop just as much as I do, if not more!
For those of you who have been to New York, I am sure you already have your favorite spots. However, for those of you who are planning a trip there soon, be sure to check out some of my favorites...and a few new places I can't wait to visit!
At the top of my must-go-to-list is my favorite Spanish born shop, Zara International.
For those trendy and inexpensive pieces, I love to stop in at H & M. Although it may take a little patience to sift through the options, it's worth a small part of the day to visit this Swedish retailer.
I have never visited the Alexis Bittar boutique in New York, so I am making a point to do so this trip. He started his career in 1988 selling his wares on the streets in Soho and now he has a storefront in West Village, Madison and Soho. Lucite, crystals and gold...oh my!
While I have frequented this British retailer, TopShop, many times on the internet, I have never visited the storefront. I plan to change that on this trip.
First, the name alone took me back to one of my favorite places in the Caribbean, St. Barthelemy. Then, after looking at the website, I longed for the sandy beaches and salty air! I can't wait to look through the plethora of maxi dresses and tunics!
And finally, I can not resist stopping at A Second Chance Designer Resale Boutique. It'll be like my own personal little treasure hunt!
So, blog readers, what are your favorite boutiques in New York City? Are there any I should add to my list of must-go-to places?
