Hands down, New York is the most amazing place I have ever visited. Whenever I talk, think or reminisce about it, I have a smile on my face. So when Farfetch asked me what essentials I'd pack in my dream New York suitcase; I was more than happy to let them know.
Please note: this is a wishlist and not items that I actually own; yet
And no, I'm not going to be recommending that you go out and purchase a pair of crocs, when in New York; the fashion capital, you're going to be among some of the most polished, well-dressed people in the world, you want to feel the part. I honestly do not believe in comfort over beauty, I believe if you're clever; you can have both. The Givenchy Studded Chelsea Boots are perfect for a trip to NYC, they're flat, stylish and would look great parading down 5th Avenue.
THE PERFECT HANDBAG
Small enough not to be a burden, but big enough to get all your essentials in. When dreaming of the perfect bag for NYC, I knew straight away which bag it would be. It's been the bag of my dreams for as long as I can remember. The Givenchy Antigona is the perfect accessory to give you that Blair Wardorf sass and class. I am obsessed with the studded one, it's black, so perfect for any outfit, and the studs just give it that little extra wow factor.
As amazing as NYC is, when you're out and about all day, your skin knows about it. I made a conscious effort when I was there to keep well on top of my skincare to ensure my skin was hydrated. Dehydrated skin = wrinkles, no thank you. I've heard such great things about Rodial as a brand, and this moisturiser has some fantastic reviews online, so it's for sure on my wishlist.
Nothing say's "I'm working it" better than the Chloé Carlina Sunglasses. I visited New York in the Autumn, and the sun was still gleaming, so I was very grateful I remembered my shades. They also come in handy when you've had one too many cocktails at one of New York's amazing rooftop bars the night before; Guilty.
Last but not least, I think when travelling, eye-shadow pallet really are a girls best friend. It means you can take all your shadows and keep them in one place, without having to take everything away with you. I'm really keen on the BY TERRY Eye Designer Palette, it looks beautiful, and they have a great mixture of shades which you could use for a day time or a night time look. Again, I've read great reviews about BY TERRY, so I think it's something I am going to have to try out in the very near future.
