While Los Angeles fed my fashion appetite during my decade-long stint, let’s be honest, there’s no place like New York City when it comes to shopping. Equipped with everything from fashion houses and high-end designers to quaint boutiques hiding down charming alleys, there’s fashion lingering everywhere. Can you say heaven?

In this month’s installment of NYC & Me, I’m taking you along to my most adored stores in the Concrete Jungle. From shops you’ve likely heard of before, to some you may not have, I can’t recommend these locations enough. Bookmark this list for your next trip to NYC, or for all my fellow New Yorkers, you know where to head on your next spree!

Mainstream Fashion

I think it goes without saying that Soho is a tourist favorite which is why most locals tend to stay away. But more often than not, I find myself perusing the streets in search of something to wear. From Intermix to Zara, Topshop to Mango, Chanel and Tibi, it truly is a one-stop shop if you’re a woman on a shopping mission.

DONT MISS: The Real Real opened a storefront and the space is seriously beautiful. It’s packed wall-to-wall with heavily discounted, previously loved luxury goodies. I can’t get enough.

Vintage Fashion

Little vintage gems are sprinkled all over the city but the best place to hop from store to store is just a little north of Washington Square Park. Along the tree-lined, brownstone streets lay some of my favorite spots from StarStruck and Beacon’s Closet.

DONT MISS: Screaming Mimi’s!

Unique Boutiques

The East Village is littered with some of my favorite kinds of shopping…boutique shopping! Best part is that everything is SO well priced; the owners did a really good job at knowing the demographic of the Village. Every piece seems to bring back that cool factor of boutique shopping we all know and love. I’m almost hesitant to give up the name of my favorite spot, The Frankie Shop, but I can’t help but share. Anything east of Allen, South of Houston, west of Norfolk and north of Grand will have a handful of spots for you to shop around at.

DONT MISS: Assembly New York beautifully blends vintage with house brand names for a unique shopping experience.

Any stores to add to my list of best places to shop in New York City?

You HAVE to check out Baby Blue Line. The owner is incredibly kind and the small boutique is stocked with timeless, one-of-a-kind pieces. It’s a must every time I visit the city.

OOOOO!!! Will do! Thank you so much for sharing, xx

this blue coat is insane ! thanks for sharing all these good spots xx

Gotta bookmark this post for when I travel to NYC.


Ooooh! I must admit, being a New Yorker I expected to know all of these places, but I’ve never thought of visiting the East Village! What an excellent idea! Now we all know how I’ll be spending my summer 🙂 What are your thoughts on Fifth Avenue? I know it’s like the Champs Élysées of New York and scattered with every high end designer but I’d love to know what you thing?! Have a nice weekend Jenny!


P.S. LOVE the outfit – the colours are great: blue coat, burgundy shoes, white Prada bag, YES!

Aw yay, so glad I could still bring you something new! I love Fifth Ave every so often, but not on my regular rotation. What’s your favorite place in the city?!

oooh! My favorite place?! That’s so hard to choose. I have different ones for different reasons. Soho or Greenwich Village if I want a beautiful location that has tons of great cafes and shops and is perfect for strolling. Fifth Ave if I want to get inspired by some of the designers, and Lincoln Center for all the culture and entertainment they have!

I’m hoping to spend my summer in NYC so I’ll be sure to check these out!

Yessss! You will not be disappointed!
