I’m writing to you fresh off a buying trip from NYC, my favorite city to explore and gather encouragement and stimulus.
My afternoons were spent perusing and editing the best lines for Spring/Summer and Fall to bring them to the Luxe Wagon. The spirit of Spring was definitely in the air and it looked amazing!
The Lower East Side is a rich neighborhood culture all its own. Full of quaint shops, several fabulous restaurants, street-inspired art and graffiti at every turn. Self expression in all forms were visually on display.
A few of my NYC highlights are below.
Shops That Inspired:
ArtFashion (Patricia Fields)
Dirty French. 3 times in one trip, it's that great!
Peter Lugers. 125 year-old institution in Brooklyn.
Clinton Street Baking Company. Brunch!
Lower East Side. A true NYC neighborhood and exploring it.
Seeing John Lithgow on Broadway!
Walking across the Williamsborough Bridge to and from dinner.
Steve Martin was at our show!
Ruth Wilson from The Affair hailing a Taxi, my favorite TV guilty pleasure since it aired in 2014.
In fashion, the overall vibe in NY and the feeling at home is
a very, "Wear what you want, everything goes in fashion."
I’m keeping with the “you do you” expression in all art forms.
