NEW YORK: Actually one can enjoy shopping in New York on a very low budget. Because just looking at he nicest window shops for example at Bergdorf Goodmann can make you feel happy and satisfied as it stimulates your creativity, like so many things in New York, you just get inspired almost at every corner. This shopping guide is not about the latest shops which opened during New York Fashion week, like for example the Todd`s shop on… or Philip Lim who`s new shop on… which is beautyfully done. This guide is about observing and mind shopping.
New York is the best city for vintage treasures, even most luxury department stores have vintage devisions. Going into any kind of beauty palor or department store to buy perfume makes me always think of George Cukor`s movie Women where a perfume girl made it into the New York high society. Walking along the streets can be an act of mental shopping. Look how people are dressed, how they enjoy wearing whatever they wear and nobody seems to care about it. The street life of New York has a lot to offer , there is always something going on and maybe you are even lucky to be the first to put an eye on a collection which is just about to be taken to the next fashion show. Voila! And at the end oft he day, food shopping is a marvelous thing in the city where everything is available and if you are sitting in the italian restaurant Trattoria on 6th Avenue it can also happen that the waiter comes out with a tray of freshly baked cookies which are still warm.
