I made myself a strict budget for this summer, and I have done a good job sticking to it so far – a fact I’m pretty proud of, given how expensive New York is. My budget means that shopping for non-essential items is strictly forbidden, which is a real shame as there’s plenty of awesome shopping to be had in NYC. But even though I can’t buy, I still have been browsing shops around the city (a girl can dream, right?), and I’ve found several great spots. Several of these stores are so visually inspiring that I couldn’t help but snap a few photos. And with that, here are a few of the shops that have caught my eye recently.
First up, Marimekko. My best friend and I have an ongoing joke: she always wears neutral clothing and jewelry, and she mocks me for favoring bright colors and prints in my dressing. So, naturally, Marimekko, with its bold, graphic designs is right up my alley. I love everything in the store, but if I had to choose a favorite, I would pick the pillows – one day (far from now, probably), a few of these babies will be on my couch:
Next up, Fishs Eddy, a store that sells a variety of dinnerware and glassware. Fishs Eddy is packed, top to bottom, with beautiful goods. There’s so much to take in and, much like my beloved Marimekko pillows, I hope that one day some of this dinnerware will be mine.
Even though I’ve stumbled upon some really inspiring places, I know that I’ve only scratched the surface (and barely even that) of all the wonderful shopping options in NYC. What are your favorite spots?
