Benetton Provocative Pop Up!

United Colors of Benetton has a provocative pop up shop in Soho, NYC.  It is dedicated to the craftsmanship of knits.  It is a swirl of colorful yarn and odd shapes.  It must be seen to be believed. Check out the website for some awesome details about this crazy shop!

Nolan- Boutique NYC- hidden gem

A Shopahillic finds Soho to be her therapeutic refuge.  When the stress and nerves get too intense, there's nothing like a Sunday stroll to set the world back on track.

This past Sunday, I went in search of greatness.  I walked through expensive boutiques with lackluster merchandise, bargain shops with the same old same old, and after much diligence, when I thought all was overpriced or lost, I ventured into NOLAN, on Prince St btwn Bowery and Elizabeth (NYC).

This cute boutique is NOT cheesy at all.  It has chic designs with a twist, in limited runs, by up and coming designers.  I smiled involuntarily as I studied the clever seam placements on a knit dress.  I tried on a supple knit cardigan-sweater hybrid that was extremely flattering.  I also was really into their bracelet selection.  Just goth enough, good quality beads, interesting marbled colors, and a very fair price.

The staff was friendly and chill, not pushy or obnoxious in any way.  The shopping bag has a ziplock closure- what a sleek space saver! 

This store does not have a website, but if you don't take my word for it, check out what Yelpers have to say!

Yosi Samra Flats = MUST HAVE

Yosi Samra flats are super comfy, fit perfectly, don't scratch, cut or abuse your feet in any way, and they are surprisingly affordable.  Leather flats of "Tori Burch" quality for 1/4 of the price!

I got a pair at LF Stores today and can't wait to get more!  Perfect to fold up an throw in your purse.

Smokin... Slippers?! Hot new trend!

Anything that involves wearing pj's during the day is my kind of trend. 

Now, slippers have become socially acceptable to wear to work!

The Smoking Slipper is a glam silhouette that is a throwback to a more glamorous time.  Find this funky new shape a great alternative to flats!

Comes in so many colors and patterns. Go nuts! Here are my top picks:
