There are those who go to New York to do nothing but shop.
And then there’s me.
As I mentioned, I had a hard time getting my shopping groove on in Manhattan; however, on Saturday afternoon I came close to simply handing over my credit card and walking away, arms laden with large paper bags, in a couple of little shops on 7th Avenue in Park Slope. Here is what I came home with:
Red Nino Bossi leather zip top handbag. I also bought a scarf at this shop that I cannot find a photo of. It’s white with a lot of red and green; it’s very funky and looks cute with this bag.
Dark brown leather Palladium flats that feel like wearing slippers.
Dansko Daphne sandals in light green (finally, some summer colors in these comfy shoes!) – these are really pretty on – the photo doesn’t capture them well.
Bliss pore-perfecting facial polish, purchased at Bigelow Pharmacy in the West Village, a wonderful shop where you will find all of your favorite “vain shit“. (I did manage to buy one item in Manhattan!) I snuck a little of this from the selection of produit in my cousin’s shower in San Francisco back in February and have been dreaming about it ever since. Oh, the clean and shiny.
So? How’d I do?
