So what does a city girl HAVE to absolutely do in New York City? Why go shopping of course 😉
First destination? Soho-where haute couture meets art, this was one of my favourite places in NYC, with towering models and model-esque glamazons strolling the streets in the trendiest outfits, fresh off a runway. This is also where the hyped up ‘D.A.S.H.’ store by the Kardashian sisters was located, where customers had to line up and wait their turn to enter into the store. Rummaging through the various racks of clothes, i did find quite a few eye-catching pieces.A predominant theme amongst many of the stocked designers was leopard print, which i absolutely loved as all my friends are well aware of my obsession with everything leopard print. However, all the items were slightly over my budget, so i was content to simply snap a few shots of the interiors and saunter back out.
Next? Spring Street, home to major American department stores such as Blooming dales and Macy’s, large high street fashion brands such as Forever 21 and Topshop, as well as quirky, individual boutiques stock full of cheap deals and bargain items.
The next day, as a true loyal fashionista, i headed to 5th avenue’s Abercrombie and Fitch, to take polaroids with their infamous store models, as well as to hunt for THE perfect pair of A&F jeans. Considering the fact that i didn’t grow up with A&F, this was a pretty exciting deal for me.
The male models were definitely drop dead gorgeous. The females however, weren’t as impressive as i expected them to be.
Abercrombie has never been one famous for their sense of style and design. However, i couldn’t leave the world’s largest A&F store empty handed. I found the perfect jeggings with the help of a friendly sales girl/model…and voila! I exited the store armed with my new purchase inside a ripped torso printed on a cardboard paper bag.
