Oh, New York City. There isn't much that I miss about life in a real city, but I do miss the shopping. It isn't that you can't buy things here, but I miss walking from one store to the next and being able to wander all day into cute boutiques with breaks for delicious pastries and coffee. On Saturday, I spent a wonderful afternoon in SoHo with my dear friend B. We always carve out time for a shopping excursion when we see each other and this time I was determined to hit a few spots that were new to me in New York. I will confess that I even created a Google Map of places to visit (embarrassing, I know).
One stop was at a store that just opened in SoHo called C. Wonder. There online boutique is not yet up and running, but if you find yourself in SoHo (72 Spring Street @ Crosby) you should definitely check out this brightly-decorated, reasonably-priced new store. In my opinion, it is a little bit Tory Burch, Kate Spade and J.Crew all rolled into one -- and less expensive (miraculous). They have fun accessories, great classic pieces (I emerged with a nice black cardigan) and fun housewares. Soon all of their products will be available online!
