New York Loot

As I mentioned last Friday, I went on a little jaunt to the Big Apple and saw the city in its autumn splendor. It was a great trip...I got to see some good friends (we met up at the Ace Hotel which I blogged about recently), eat great food, see Wicked, go to the MoMA, and do a little shopping.

I happily went to ABC Carpet and Home and the Conran Shop (in ABC Home). I swear, I could spend hours in there...especially after discovering the stash of close-out priced Madeline Weinrib rugs and pillows in the basement. Also, I wish I hadn't eaten lunch right before I went because their restaurant, ABC Kitchen, looked awesome. Despite loving lots of things I saw in the store, I responsibly came out without any purchases.

Then I scooted over to Fish's Eddy and bought a set of aqua dish towels and gray and blue striped straws. Random, I know, but both were irresistibly cute and I was definitely itching to buy something.







I also got to pop into CB2, which was fun because I've never been into one of their stores before. While there, I bought an acrylic tray that I've been lusting over for a while. To me it's a needless necessity, but my husband could not wrap his head around why I purchased yet another tray for our house. I explained that I was really being thrifty by getting this tray instead of the more expensive Dabney Lee beauty that I really want! In any case, I like my new tray. Here it is keeping some magazines and books from getting out of hand...



I wish I'd had more time in the city, because I have looong list of stores to hit up. I need to get up there again soon and dedicate more time to shopping!
Do you have any favorite stores in New York?

  3. I just love your style (and not just because we have similar taste). The milk glass, navy accents, and the adorable lamps. I can't wait to put the final touches on my home...hope that it is just as lovely.

  4. Hi Kyle!

    Just stumbled upon your blog via a High Gloss magazine announcement. I'm a DFW lifestyle blogger too and was excited to see that you are close by. Were you at Nest last week for Beth & Kelly's Post Blogger Social? Maybe I just missed you. :-(

    Love the blog!

  7. I'm so glad you had a good trip here!

    Fishs Eddy is such a gem - I love that place! Next time you'll have to check out ABC Kitchen - it's really fun.

    One of my favorite stores here in NYC is this little antique decor shop in the East Village called the Upper Rust. The last time I was there, they had the large tin numbers from an old filling station's price display. We snagged a 3 and I can't wait to include it in the wall grouping I'm working on.

  9. HilaryInspired - unfortunately I had to miss the blogger social because I was in New York...I was so sad to see the date when I got the invite because I knew I had a conflict. Hopefully I can make it to the next one!
