Visiting New York City, September 2018. What to DO, What to SEE, What to WEAR, What You will FIND on a Shop Gotham Program

September 9th, 2018

September is one of the MOST beautiful months to visit NYC. Summer is now behind us, but the mild weather offers a bounty of things to do.  Each month we share a few tidbits which are NOT in your typical tour book.

What to DO:
1) Get a ticket to the Tribeca Tv Fest Sept 20 – 23rd.
Love Ray Donovan? sneak peak the first episode of the season and then listen to Liev Shreiber and and Jon Voight discuss the show . Just one example. Run dont walk!

2)if you LOVE fashion, check out 29Rooms (Brooklyn), an interactive exhibition in honor of fashion week featuring 29 rooms designed by retail brands, artists, celebrities and other creative

WHAT to SEE:
2)Take a stroll to Gape at the limestone homes of the upper East Side.  Get out of midtown and walk some of the magnificent streets of the upper east side to see how the “other half lives”.
The blocks of between Lexington and Park are particularly beautiful. Start at East 67th (lex -park) and continue to East 78th (lex to park)

What to WEAR
It’s simple: bring your most stylish dark colored light weight apparel. Be it jeans, dresses or leather jackets: make sure they are well fitted, and in style.

What You will FIND on a Shop Gotham Program

What to WEAR in NYC (New York City) – EARLY- MID SEPT

August 25th, 2018

General Tips: Casual Chic is the New York Style. People no longer dress for the theater or museums, although looking smart is always in style. All black is common for a New Yorker,  but you need not comply with this.

WHAT TO WEAR:

YES – do bring your white jeans and comfortably wear them until mid September. Although its post Labor Day, the rules have changed and the temps can still be in the low 80’s.

Great outfit for warm September day in new york city

 

DO

  • Pair your white, blue or black jeans with a non- white short sleeve top or off the shoulder to for the daytime shopping, lunching, meandering.
  • For dinner and/or theater, opt for a stylish top with a  light-weight jacket (jean, cloth, light leather, blazer.)  A simple dress with a light leather jacket is always a winner.
  • Feet: Post Labor Day, you may want to leave your very casual sandals and flop flops home. However, open toe boots, closed flats, closed low boots(booties) and cool sneakers are definitely “right” for this season.

NO NO’s:

  •  Stay away from white on white outfits.
  • Leave your summer florals home
  • No need for heavy wool sweaters
  • Do NOT wear fur trimmed or sequin items.
  • Do NOT bring a cocktail dress for dinner out , unless you are invited to a legitimate cocktail party which calls for this.

The ABC’s of New York City Sample Sales

As the peak season approaches each year, we try to enlighten our readers with the What, Why and How of Sample Sales.

Once upon a time, designers sold their handful of sample size items at the end of the year. These are the individual pieces shown to store buyers. Some make it to full production, some do not.  Typically, these are size 2, 4 or 6. That was then, this is now

Now, sample sales are BIG business and one can expect big inventory. All seasonal overstock in ALL sizes as well as those coveted one-off samples, are offered at Massive discount. This is an opportunity to buy often unaffordable clothing and accessories at very affordable prices. Or to chase down the designer names you love. or to simply shop for cool stuff. Essential to know: Must get to Sample Sale on its First day open!

In New York City, the apex of the 2017 sample sale season is November 13 to December 15.

Shop Gotham knows what is what and what is where. Come join us for private access to designer showrooms to shop at wholesale followed by a roster of all the best sample sales in town. Forget the Department Stores. This is oh so much chicer.

Here are but a few names we are excited about. Starting in NOV

SoHo NYC. Tips for a worthwhile Full Day in SoHo

June 15th, 2017

With its cobblestone streets and Cast Iron architecture, the SoHo/NoLita neighborhood is worth a full day’s visit. Yes, like much of NY, its becoming “mallified” – big name brands pushing out indie stores- but there is still plenty of interesting shopping and far more. Our recommendation (including our own “plug”:)

New Museum of Contemporary Art (great architecture in NYC)

A Friday:
1)11am: Pay a visit to THE NEW MUSEUM, for contemporary art in a stunning physical structure. 
2)Noon: Lunch at DELICATESSAN www.delicatessennyc.com (not a deli!) for delicious comfort food options as well as great light fare on the best corner for people watching, inside and out.
3)1:30pm: Join us for a SoHo and NoLita Chic Boutiques Shopping Tour so that we can Bring you to those Indie shops worth knowing about
4)4:00pm: Visit MOCA: www.mocanyc.org (museum of Chinese in America) and learn the story of this important immigrant group in a building designed by the famed Maya Lin (also designed the Vietnam Memorial in DC)
