The Stylist’s Suitcase: New York
I will soon hit the pavement of my former perlieu, New York City & no doubt return home with a suitcase full of objects which capture the characteristics of the most vibrant & energetic city in the world!
I must disclosure that on my last trip to NYC I returned home with twice the amount of hand luggage & always recommend to bring a second suitcase to shop shop shop! New York will provide some of the most unique shopping experiences you will find. If you run out of space on your own ventures through the city, duffle bags can easily be purchased on 14th Street!
Take a peek inside my suitcase...
If you are shopping up a storm and you are staying at a hotel & apartment with a doorman, you can have any store ship your goods to you so you do not have to lug around bags.
I’m a Downtown girl but there are many beautiful places to stay in NYC and the boom in fabulous hotels in the last 8 years has made it a cornucopia of choice.
In my suitcase you will find:
BOND No 9 | NEW YORK FLING- A high energy cork-popping scent perfect for late night escapades through the city! Notes of jasmine absolute, clementine, basil & bergamont to remind you of the big apple in days gone by.
