Chelsey shopping

Day one of my younger sister, Chelsey & my shopping excursion in the fashion capital of the world & it was a success! (Haha obviously based on the plethora of shopping bags Chelsey & I accumulated shown in the picture above).  Here are my favorite shopping haunts when I have the pleasure of escorting friends & family around NYC:

1. Bleeker Street (West Village)-Marc by Marc Jacobs, Intermix, Steven by Steve Madden, Ralph Lauren

2. Bond Street & Bowery Street (NOHO)- Billy Reid, Oak, Patricia Field, Blue & Cream

3. Lower East Side– In God We Trust, TG-170, Yumi Kim, Reed Space, Foley & Corinna, Szeki

4. Upper Fifth Avenue-Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendels, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue

5. SOHO– TopShop, Barneys CO-OP, H&M, Zara, Flying A

Today we covered Bleeker, Bond & Bowery Streets.…..One day down two more to go!  Check out our favorite purchases from today:

Rory Beca dress

‘Effortless Girly Girl’: Achieve this look with a flowy frock by Rory Beca from Intermix, black suede & patent leather thongs by Matt Bernson from Oak & either a mix of long, layered necklaces or one statement necklace.

Matt Bernson for Oak thong sandals

Chelsey’s new black leather thongs by Matt Bernson exclusively for Oak

Maeve dress & Billy Reid belt

Summer Bohemian Chic– Achieve this look with a brightly patterned tunic that can be worn solo or with a pair of leggings (the IT item for fall!).  Chelsey’s wearing her new tunic dress by Maeve from Anthropologie, a worn leather belt by Billy Reid & adorble jellie thongs from Old Navy.

Pour la Victoire Sandals

Lastly my favorite purchase of the day– a studded pair of leather open toe flats by Pour la Victoire from Intermix.  Super pumped!  Can be worn with pretty much anything from a casual sundress to a pair of relaxed trousers & t-shirt.

The day would not have been complete without delicious food to energize us on our shopping adventure!  Shopping + delectable NYC food = puuuuuuuuuure heaven!

Crumbs polaroid

Snack: polaroid (cool new application on my iPhone, love it!) of the ‘Elvis’ & the ‘Brownie’ cupcake from Crumbs Bakery–to DIE for if you’re an icing fan like moi!

Trio of Noodles at HanGawi

Chelsey’s dinner: Trio of Noodles (acorn, butternut & brown rice) with wasabi soy sauce from Korean restaurant HanGawi.  Not only did we have delicious & healthy cuisinary delights (haha we needed it after our Crumbs cupcake snack!) but the atmosphere of this Murray Hill restaurant is quite ‘zen-like’ complete with leave your shoes at the door & sit on the floor (don’t worry you get a comfy cushion).  All in all a terrific experience!

Organic Avocado Bibimbap with Brown Rice at HanGawi

My dish of choice-organic avocado bibimbap with brown rice & miso sauce-so fresh & flavorful!
