Visiting New York This September

September 9th, 2015

Packing for a trip away, especially for a fashion mecca such as New York City can be a challenge. September has arrived, Fashion Week has literally begun yet Fall is not quite in full swing. Use the final few summer days – perhaps even weeks – to rock an array of pastel and nude looks before the new season well and truly kicks in. When choosing what to wear for a September in New York at any age, you have the opportunity to keep it light and bright.

Here at Shop Gotham we recommend packing a lightweight cream sweater which you can pair with white skinnies and beige flats. For smooth day-to-evening transition, add a nude leather jacket. Make the most of accessorising with a large black tote for days out and we cannot help but love a dark burgundy/vamp lip for the right amount of color. The best thing about keeping it neutral is that you can pack a few extra dark items again for the perfect day-to-evening looks. See our moodboard inspiration courtesy of Polyvore below:

 

Travel In Style

June 17th, 2015

We’re back again for another installment of our Guest Blogger Series: Travel in Style. Each week we speak to NYC’s hottest fashionista’s who are armed with style advice for your trip to the fashion capital! This week, we caught up with Annette Marom – a talented designer turned Television stylist for major TV networks. Having started her career in NYC’s Garment Center in the menswear industry, Marom followed her dream and created a womenswear line of her own. After settling down in the concrete jungle, she decided to pursue a career in styling. See below for her guide to New York style.

SG: Tell us a little about what you do?

AM: My name is Annette. I shop and style men and women for network television. News and Sports.

SG: What are your top 5 must have pieces right now for fashionistas preparing for a trip to NYC?

AM: For ALL ages:

  • White jeans
  • Flat espadrilles
  • A day hat
  • Your best handbag (not an evening bag)
  • A day dress (to the knee for you ladies over 40) or a maxi dress

SG: Biggest trend this season?

AM: Espadrilles

SG: What is your secret NYC hotspot?

AM: Not a secret but a new restaurant I recently went to and really like: Dirty French in the Ludlow Hotel on the Lower East Side. Both great ambience and food. It is new and hot, so resies are tough right now – book early!

SG: Best Travel advice?

AM: Plan your outfits before you leave and just pack them!

Travel In Style

June 5th, 2015

We’re back for the second interview of our new Guest Blogger Series: Travel in Style – where you can expect top tips for travel from NYC’s most stylish bloggers! This week, we caught up with the ultra stylish Iyesha Cunningham of Salting Light. A well-travelled, trend savvy photographer, Cunningham dabbles in the fashion marketing world while presenting her photography on her own blog in her spare time. Get ready for a New York summer with her top style tips below.

SG: Hi, tell us a little bit about Salting Light?

SL: Salting light is the name of my blog I started right before I started doing some travelling. I used it to show my adventures and post some other projects I am working on. I got the name from this bible verse I really love in Matthew 5:13 which talks about us being the salt and light of the earth, and I love the concept of lighting in my photography so it all meshed together.

SG: What are your Top 5 recommended ‘must have pieces’ right now, for fashionistas preparing to pack for their NYC trip?

SL: I’d say some classic white sneakers, an oversized t-shirt dress, boyfriend jeans, classic denim jacket, and a good tote or leather bag to get you from day to night.

SG: Biggest trend this season?

SL: I am a sucker for all white and overalls.

SG: What is your secret NYC hotspot?

SL: haha. Secret hotspot? I’d say a best kept secret in New York is Inwood in the Fort Tryon Park and Cloisters area, even the path under the George Washington bridge by the lighthouse. It’s such an escape from the NYC madness but a bit out of the way.
