New York Window Shopping!

Fabric district aside, me and the girls couldn't wait to hit the stores! New York City is the ultimate shopper's paradise where east meets west resulting in a population of brand names representing the best of what the world has to offer in fashion. Of course all of the favorites are omnipresent: GAP, H&M, Zara, Dior, Armani, Chanel, etc.... However this is the land of Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren and of course, the larger than life New York department stores. As such, this was our focus as we went in search of the quintessential American style.

My dolls heard a rumor that Coach handbags was selling a Barbie style handbag at Macy's. They knew exactly where to look and made a beeline for the counter selling....keychains. There it was...the tiny tangerine leather satchel complete with a raspberry tassel and  a tiny tag authenticating the brand name....all for the modest price of $40.

Once that purchase was out of the way, we were on our way. Here is the best of what we found.

We thoroughly enjoyed the windows of Lord & Taylor. Foot tall figurines were used cleverly to display jewelry.

Full sized versions of the dolls were then created to show off fashions.


But what would the trip be without a trip to the world famous toy store, "FAO Schwartz." Okay, so it's not as luxurious as it once was, however, it was worth the trip just to see the Tonner dolls on display as well as the Barbie Collector line of dolls.

As fast as our trip began.....everything came to an end. We had a great time in the Big Apple.
We love you, New York!!!!!

  1. Oh WOW what a place to explore and adore fashion! The girls would have loved it and I love the Coach bag they got. Would so love one or two or three of those LOL. Love how the girls are wearing outfits that look like the ones in the store windows... very clever!
