When I first moved to NY from London, I had no idea WHERE some of the best places were to shop. Not the big name stores. We all know those. But those cool boutiques squirreled away across the city that a newcomer like me longed to know about. THOSE were the shopping gems I wanted to discover. The places where stylish local New York girls shopped and loved.
Growing up in London I knew where they were, but not here. Not knowing anyone to help, I set about finding them myself and over the years, I built up a closet based on those hunts (to mix in with what I already brought over from England). To this day, nothing thrills me more in this city, than to stumble on yet another hidden treasure.
Now that I’ve experienced both sides of that big pond, I’ve often been asked where did I get what I’m wearing so I figured I’d start a blog about it since I’m now a mishmash of both cities.
An Englishman in New York as the lovely Sting would put it. That’s definitely me
Since I’ve always loved asking people where did THEY get what they are wearing, I now document that through my street style photography! If I run into you and ask Polar Bear Library, don’t be alarmed, it’s a shopping thing : -)
