One Short Day In New York City, New York
Manhattan known to many as the center of the world happens to play host to the best known Fashion Week – “Olympus New York Fashion Week.” With such standards in place, it is no wonder that some of the best shopping experiences of my life took place in New York.
Century 21 – A Girls Shopping Dream
I was shocked and surprised that many of my New York friends had no clue this palace of discount designers existed. The shoe department alone carries over 100,00 pairs at any given time! Trying making an outing of it, gather up the girls and have at it. As I discovered they carry everything from clothes, cosmetics to lingerie all in designer labels with deep discounts running from 25 – 60%.
