Anatomy of a trip to New York City - Laduree, Levi's, Baggus and Milk Bar ...
 / / / www.h& or


I returned from a business trip to New York City yesterday and as I unpacked I realized that I was able to capture the essence of the city and the world with some of the items I purchased ( so typical of a trip to NYC) . I am so excited with my purchases, here is a quick recap of what I bought, in no particular order.

Happy Shopping! My apologies for the pictures, I hope to have a new camera very soon!

Levi's - Boyfriend Skinny    - close on the lower leg, slightly baggy on top, slight slouch as seen from Haider Ackerman - Look 5 Spring 2013.  Must be tried on for proper size and fit Macy's H Square NYC , I tried three sizes before settling on the 27, but I think the 28 would slouch some more so.......  If you cannot find them in stores buy a couple of pairs Levi's Selvedge Boyfriend Skinny Jeans - Resin Rinse try them at home, get the right fit and return the ones which do not work.

Laduree  - The best macarons in the world I requested delivery to my hotel and they arrived before I left my hotel to go to the airport. Rose is my favorite flavor. Deliveries only in New York City NY Link - Madison Ave. Their customer service is impeccable.

Nine West Black Suede booties - I have not been able to find these on line to attach a link.  They may have been exclusive to the new  Macy's Herald World's Largest Shoe Floor Square Shoe Floor New Shoe Floor Image - Macy's Herald Square in NYC ( I am feeling lucky now). These are similar Nine West Booties in gray.

Milk Bar Cookies - I had make a special trip to the east side to get some of the best cookies in NYC They also deliver within NYC, but we stopped and ate at first ( try the Ginger Scallion Noodles ). At Milk Bar try to Compost Cookie, The Cornflake Cookie and the Birthday Cake truffle. The Compost cookie is otherwordly.

Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara - Just hitting stores now, this Macy's In stores or On line , this is truly high impact. Tons of lashes and lots of glam, love it!

Joe Fresh ( the company which brought us the venerable Club Monoco) Pleather A Line Skirt in Burgundy -  ( color trending forward) - Joe Fresh has a mammoth store on 5th ave in NYC and I was giddy for a 30 minutes before I settled down and bought two items including this skirt in Burgundy. I will be wearing this fab classic foreverJoe Fresh Skirt- Black online but Forest and Burgundy in stores. ( no weight gain please!). At $39.00 well worth it! Wear with black booties and a turtleneck this year, next year....the following year... Store Locator - NYC only

H & M - Jeweled Collar available at H and M locations Freshen up and dress up a black or white tee and jeans. Perfect!  About 25 dollars.


just before boarding the plane at La Guardia.  They have revamped the retail stores near to the boarding area, dangerous is the only word I can use to describe the new stores.

Baggu - I was always to lazy to get these on line but there they were staring at me in the travel store so....I love these colors, these were my picks!  Baggu bags are super light and they are perfect for holding toiletries, books ( depending on size), pens, pencils, chargers and anything else. They are made with super durable ripstop nylon and best part is that they are machine washable! . The address for a store is NY

242 Wythe Avenue  Brooklyn, NY 11249
(800) 605-0759
Delfonics - Delfonics is a Japanese designer stationary company which started back in 1987 with a date book and they have been at it ever since. Their products are very hard to locate outside of the US and now they are at La Guardia airport!  The streamlined pens now come in beautiful pop colors and you can also purchase them online by the purveyors of all things cool, why J Crew of course!  Delfonic Pens at J Crew!  . I knew that my daughter would ask me if I brought anything back for Dad so this was the perfect gift!

The Brooklyn Bag by Maptote - The Maptote Story . My daughter needed a bag for her music lessons and this was a bag - We have family in Brooklyn and souvenir rolled into one. Made with 100% cotton, cut and sewn in Brooklyn NY! Love it!

Think I spent enough? :)

Happy Shopping!
