NY – While New York City is beautiful all year round, it’s the crisp air and changing leaves of Fall that make a stroll through the city especially magical. The whole of New York state may have their apples and hiking, but we’ve got the downtown shopping mecca of Soho. And a trip to New York doesn’t need to mean your annually salary being spent. As a Shopping Expert and creator of Cheap Chic Shopping Tours, we revel in making you look amazingly Fall fresh for less.
I love to start clients off at a pharmacy like the inconspicuous Duane Reade on Broadway and Houston. It’s what I like to call pharmacy chic. Tights and leggings are a terrific way to take your Summer wardrobe into cooler temps, and in the back of this corner drug store, you’ll find fashionable prints, cool colors and flattering opaque tights to cover all of your hosiery needs. And at $2 – $10 less than the local discount store, Duane Reade is a Cheap Chic Shopping favorite.
There is no easier way to welcome cooler weather in style than with a new pashmina, hat and trendy, new sunglasses from a Soho street vendor, found along Broadway. All priced at $10 or less, you can bring Fall in with a black cat-eye, luxurious Oxblood Red scarf and a knot hat, hip-ly placed just so.
Want to stop for a Cheap Chic treat? Baked by Melissahas a kiosk on Spring St. that serves up delicious $1 mini-cupcakes. So fab.
Looking for a bootie with fringe or those sexy smoking slippers you see on the trendy set? Head to the back wall of shoes, hidden away at Mystique Boutique. They offer any and all of your favorite Fall looks at $30 or less, including a Hunter-inspired boot for $10.
