Those who know me will not be surprised that I’ve made many lists in relation to my forthcoming trip to the US.
I am genetically programmed to do so .
And now that those lists can be made electronically … well, somebody stop me.
I’m having way too much fun. Particularly with THIS list.
My NYC SHOPPING list.
See, I’m applying the same prep work I apply (and advise others to apply) to when planning for a new-season wardrobe.
By creating a shopping wishlist, I’m creating a shopping vision board, of sorts. I’m putting it out there that the
ridiculously high priced designer items that my beer budget never allows into the equation, will suddenly appear before my eyes with a significantly reduced price tag attached.
Yep, I’m a dreamer.
Seriously, though, what’s wrong with a little dreaming?
I don’t doubt that I will see clothes that I like and decide I must immediately have but it’s accessories that always carry the greatest shopping seduction power for me.
Maybe that’s because it won’t matter how many gluten-free New York bagels that I eat, accessories will still fit when I get home …
There are also key stores I’m keen to experience for the first time … Athropologie for all round lustworthyness, Kate Spade to up my geekery collection and Sephora to fill the imaginary makeup void I don’t really have but will invent just to take advantage of ridiculous US prices.
I’ll also be on the lookout for some completely impractical, yet bargainista, statement designer shoes, some additions to my NYDJ jean collection, at least one pair of new sunnies and a new wallet to replace my
falling apart well-loved Mimco one.
Part of the list making process involves me spending A LOT of time researching online and checking out the “normal” price – both here (if available) and in the US.
Knowledge is power, Stylers.
This kind of knowledge helps you to be armed, prepared and importantly quickly able to make a bargain judgement call when in the midst of a New York buying frenzy.

Thoughts re my list? If you’ve been to New York, what else should I have as a must-see-spend shopping destination list?
