Local Jaunt : Flying A

January 27, 2012

I know you guys were expecting a “Week in Review” for today, but let’s mix things up shall we?

Ok. Here we go!

The first store on my Mastercard Priceless New York shopping tour list is Flying A, where affordable casual chic jeans, jackets, and jumpers hangout with 1960s boho dresses and romper boots. I admittedly had never heard of this store before but now have it wedged into my hefty list of must-stop Soho shops. I must have tried on over eight pairs of their colorful denim this past weekend and am still cursing myself for not buying a pair of Pour la Victoire chestnut brown boots. Another item on my “curse myself for not buying” list are some ridiculously cute necklaces with teeny tiny animal charms (and when I say teeny tiny I mean it – a little piggy’s tail was less than a centimeter long!). As much as I try to convince myself that my style is sophistication at it’s finest, I have a serious weakness for cute animal accessories. Luckily, now that Flying A is on my radar I’ll have plenty of other opportunities to buy the aforementioned boots and necklaces and all those other pieces I deem as “necessities.”

Priceless Excursions

January 18, 2012

As I mentioned before, I’ve teamed up with Glamour and MasterCard to take Mastercard cardholders on a shopping excursion throughout Soho. This past weekend was the official kickoff and it did not disappoint! Starting at Ground Support, a Soho coffee shop which boasts some seriously good coffee and homemade peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I can’t stop craving, I met my first few shoppers for a brief style consultation before we hit the frosty pavements to get our shop on. With a total of three stores on our itinerary – Flying A, Patina, and AvaMaria, all of which I will highlight in the next couple of days – my shoppers and I turned into serious scavengers as we scoured the racks trying on colorful trousers, vintage statement jewelry, and discounted designer shoes that make my toes wiggle with delight.

I’ll be doing this for the next few weekends and can’t wait to meet my next set of shoppers!

Is this something you guys would be interested in? I feel like I should do it again once it’s warmer…
