on my new york city loves

Although I will always be a Florida girl at heart, I have moved to New York and love every single day of the city life. You can find an incredible bite of food on almost every block, and there is virtually always something to do. After all, the city never sleeps. But, my favorite part about living in New York City is the exposure to fashion. I love the street style and especially the shopping. I am currently obsessing over Fivestory, Intermix, Opening Ceremony, and Scoop NYC because they're all meccas of style.

Fivestory the brainchild of Claire Distenfeld and her father is the realization of my most decadent, fashionable dreams in an Upper East Side townhouse. The boutique is very much high-end and showcases many lesser-known designers. The clothing and accessories are displayed as artistic masterpieces, just as they should be.

Intermix has taken the media by storm recently after being purchased by Gap. The boutique is fun and young and hosts a great number of designers from Joie to Herve Leger to Giuseppe Zanotti. I can't go in without finding something new that I absolutely love.

Opening Ceremony is famous for its quirky, yet very beautiful products. It's the edgier sister to Fivestory, featuring lesser-known designers while upholding a high-end status. The prices are often daunting, but the clothes and accessories are always stunning and fun.

Scoop NYC has been one of my favorites for years. Its products are very similar to those of Intermix. The volume of clothing at times can be overwhelming. But, overwhelming is never a bad thing when it comes to clothes.

A Preen dress from Fivestory, a Zac Posen maxi from Scoop, an M & Guia dress from Intermix, a Missoni caftan from Intermix, a 3.1 Phillip Lim satchel from Scoop, Meli platforms from Intermix, Ash wedge sneakers from Intermix, a Proenza Schouler messenger from Opening Ceremony, and Jeremy Scott sunglasses from Opening Ceremony
