Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale
With just 30 employees but a kick-ass selection of bags (MAJOR), shoes, accessories and ready-to-wear, Rebecca Minkoff rocks the funk. At her sample sale this Saturday, I purchased the large Morning After Clutch in red. It’s The Business. I’ve been coveting it since Dina scored one a couple months ago.
One of my favorite niche beauty haunts, Thompson Chemists and nearby Thompson Alchemists boast an impressive array of international beauty delights. It’s also the only place I know of in NYC that sells famous French moisturizer Embryolisse, which I adore for colder weather. Save yourself a FLIGHT and score one there. I also scored some Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads and one of their house-brand soaps in the eucalyptus scent. Amaze.
New London Pharmacy
This pharmacy is enormous and does what Thompson Chemists does on a larger scale. The bent is toward organic/natural beauty brands, but you’ll also find a full makeup counter featuring Becca and Kevyn Aucoin Beauty confections, in addition to amazing brands like John Masters Organics, Nuxe and fabulous fragrance finds like Etat Libre d’Orange. I picked up a brand new bottle of It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-in Plus Keratin here.
