If you visit New York and want to shop there is always Barney's, Macy's, Bloomingdale's and the many stores in Soho. If you have money that's the ideal places to go. If you are on a budget like I am, going for a month long travel and all, then there is the less glamorous Jersey Gardens. Less glamorous, but just as amazing, in different ways.
Jersey Gardens is a huge outlet mall. If you have time and want to shop on a budget, do yourself a favor and make your way out there! You can get anything for much, much cheaper. I hardly get anything anywhere else anymore unless there is something specific and amazing that came this season that I absolutely need. They do a lot of Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, GAP, Michael Kors, DKNY, Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Victoria's Secret and so on.
I only have some phone snaps from the trip, we basically spent all day there so I had to settle with gazing at my lovely Manhattan from the car.
