The time has come ... helloooooo, New York!
My NYC trip wishlist:
1. A faux fur vest.
I know I'm late to join the party on this one, but all of the versions I've tried on seem so bulky and huge. I'm still on the hunt for a slim, trim, non-Sasquatch-spotting fur vest.
2. Cheap, trendy jewelry.
I absolutely love those cheap, trendy jewelry stores in NYC with the jewelry that goes on for miles and miles. My favorite store there is called So Good. On my last trip there, I bought two pairs of earrings that are some of my very favorites! They always get compliments. You can often find good knock-off versions of Amrita Singh and Kendra Scott earrings there.
3. Bubble tea.
We used to have a kiosk here in Charlotte that is now kaput. But I can always rely on a good bubble tea fix in Chinatown!
Because it would be a tragedy to go to New York during the winter holidays and NOT walk around with the traditional red cup. We obviously have Starbucks on every corner here in Charlotte, but it all takes on a new meaning in chilly New York.
5. A street vendor pashmina.
My pashmina collection is truly out of control, and I attribute that to all of my former New York trips where you can score them for $5 after a little bit of haggling and doing the walk-away. I think I'd like a purple one, or maybe a pretty minty one.
What else should be on my New York wishlist?
