Visiting New York This September


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


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


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.

Travel In Style


Shop Gotham has long been about providing eager shoppers with ‘Insider’ information – just check out our Garment Center Tours. We wanted to take that one step further for all of our visitors out there, so we are introducing to you *drumroll please* our new Guest Blogger series. We’ve delved deep into the world of fashion to find you New York’s top bloggers who are armed with travel and style advice for you as you plan ahead your trip to the fashion capital of the world. This week we speak to the wonderful Brittni Joy Shalit, a style savvy New Yorker who runs her own fashion company, In All Honesty. She’ll have you ready for your travels in no time!

SG: Hi, tell us a little bit about In All Honesty?

BJS: In All Honesty is a women’s fashion brand derived on having versatile and easy pieces that can be worn a million different ways, dressed up or down – with a slight edge to it. After a few months of having the online shop open, I decided to take it a step further and make In All Honesty a blog as well to help show all the different ways in which the pieces can be worn. An inspiration of sorts. From there the blog kind of took off and I started to add in Personal Style as well.

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

BJS:

1. Layers – it changes from hot to cold and gets chilly in-between the buildings

2. A cute backpack – whether it be a fjallraven or a vintage designer one you stole for your mom, it’s perfect to run around the city with and works for day to night.

3. Suede. Really into suede skirts, tops, jackets & bags too! REALLY into suede bags. (suede backpack – DUH!)

4. Fashion sweatshirt. My favorite look hands down is an oversized cute sweatshirt with vintage cutoff denim shorts.

5. Comfortable shoes. You will be walking a lot, and if you’re not, you didn’t do NYC justice. Converse hi tops are always my go-to’s, or my black ankle boots.

SG: Biggest trend this season?

BJS: Truthfully this is a tougher question than “tell me about yourself.” I don’t really follow trends, I kind of just think of things I want to wear and then the hunt begins to find them. Some key things I’m looking forward to wearing this summer are: Co-ords, denim cut-offs with sheer tops or bodysuits (one-piece swimsuits work too), sneakers (think stan smith or Converse), flatforms, and leather. ALWAYS leather.

SG: What is your secret NYC hotspot?

BJS: Whether it’s a secret or not, my favorite place that I drag all my friends to is Macondo in the LES. THE best sangria, tacos, and guacamole, EVER.

SG: Best travel advice given?

BJS: Plan your outfits (versatility is key) and pack light, you can always go shopping for what you didn’t bring.

The famed Plaza Hotel Tea Room re-opens today


Want to feel transported for a couple hours? The Plaza Hotel tea hour in the Palm Court reopens today after a a full renovation. In addition to the typical tea fare of scones and mini crustless cucumber sandwhiches, lobster rolls and other delightful items have been added. $50- $65 for the service, but this is a treat worth trying.

A Shop Gotham shopping tour will most certainly cap off this most decadently delightful day

You lucky traveler, the weather in NYC this summer has been nothing less than SPECTACULAR. Thus Far, days are in the low 80’s F, eves are a warm comfortable low 70’s.

Cool and Casual reigns here. Some quick “Do’s (and we hope you don’t mind “Dont’s”)

DONT Wear: your maxi skirt with stilettos!

DO Wear: patterned leggings with a chic cropped tank or tee

DO NOT wear: your patterned leggings with a midriff

Do Wear: Daytime: Above the knee shift- like dresses in cotton or silk, with wedges or flats

DO NOT wear: Daytime: Above the knee spandex forming fitting dresses with heels!

Do Wear: loose Genie pants with a cute graphic tee and strappy flats

DO NOT wear: Genie pants with a tailored jacket – unless you have such the cool style and just the right cut, that you know how to pull this off

DO CARRY: your handbag

DO NOT WEAR: a fanny pack (this is never chic and screams “Look at me. I am a tourist”)

DO wear to the Theater: white jeans with a stylish top or a casual blazer (carry a cardigan or wrap to combat the AC)
