Pink Elephant Blog guest post - Top places to shop in NYC!

Today's guest post comes courtesy of Alex and Becky of Pink Elephant Blog!  These award winning ladies (don't ya know they won the Best Lifestyle Blog at the Image Blog Awards) have an amazing blog full of beauty, lifestyle and fashion and are two classy bridies if I do say so myself.  Their photos are always gorgeous and in the past two years, these two lovely ladies have built a blog completely worthy of that award and then some.

As they are a deadly duo, they've gone and given me two New York inspired blog posts and have me even more excited than I already am if that's possible!  Up first we have the ladies' top places to shop in NYC and you can bet your bottom dollar that I've taken down all of the addressed below so Joanne and I won't forget where we have to go!  Thanks ladies!

Our Top Places to Shop in NYC

Having recently returned from the beautiful NYC, there are few places better I'd rather indulge in a little retail therapy. New York truly is the city that never sleeps, and there no better place for your wallet to take a pounding. Whatever you're after, you'll find it here!  Here's a few of our favourites…

T2 / 67 Prince St, New York, NY

Having first discovered T2 when living in Australia, I developed an unhealthy obsession with vintage style teacups and beautiful teas. So when my eyes fell on the T2 logo on a rainy Soho day in New York earlier this month having no idea they'd expanded their stores stateside, I made a beeline for it! There's a lovely quirky, hipster vibe to this store with exotic teas and Moroccan style teacups stacked to the ceiling. Don't judge me on the fact I had a teacup gift wrapped…for myself.

Kate Spade / 135 5th Ave, New York, NY

Kate Spade has always been on my radar although it's never been a brand readily available in Ireland. Well, NYC is the home of Kate Spade in all her loveliness and her stores are well worth a visit. I picked up a gorgeous leather crossbody bag and a ridiculously pretty gold bow bangle and necklace. Don't even get me started on her stationary, yes it is the definition of insanity to spend $20 on gold paper clips…just wait until you're holding them in your hands and I dare to try resist!

Magnolia Bakery / 401 Bleecker Street, W. 11th Street, New York, NY ‎

Okay so not technically a 'shopping stop' although they do stock some of the cutest aprons, cookbooks, vintage straws etc. which I almost bought them out of! This New York institution of Sex and the City fame is worth a sugar pit stop if ever there was an excuse. I'd highly recommend the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing by way of fueling your retail adventures!
