📍Soho: Last weekend I found myself back in the city with my friend Amaya (you should follow her on ig @lookingforamaya !!), who knows where to find the city's coolest spots like nobody else.
The first stop we hit was the MILLY Popup in Soho. Its one of the most beautiful stores I’ve ever been in, from the clothes to the lights to the huge arch adorned with flowers. Big plus: everyone in there was so nice and informative. Even bigger plus: Leandra Medine (my hero!) recently visited the shop as well.
Snacks were the next stop: By Chloe. Its all vegan and plant-based, and we were just stopping for ice cream, but I desperately wanted to stay and try more! Since we went right before Halloween, we got the limited-edition version of their famous push-up pops. Don't be fooled by the black color, it was a creamsicle! That definitely freaked out both of our taste buds. They have 7 locations in NY alone (including a sweets shop!) but I went to the one on Lafayette Street.
Next up was the brand-new Bulletin store in Nolita. The cult favorite already has a shop in Williamsburg, but I'm devoted this new one. They'll even give you a free tote bag if you follow them on Instagram!
When I was in LA I visited Junior High, which instantly sucked me in with its feminist approach and adorable merchandise, including bags, pins and patches, stickers, and double life as a community/art space. Bulletin, for me, is the perfect NY alternative. See for yourself below! Visit this store at 27 Prince Street, New York, NY.
School has been insane lately, but I'll be back in the city asap! Until then...
