Whenever I visit NYC, I always visit the Upper East Side Marimekko store (one of my absolute favourites!). Naturally the first real day of being in town, we did a few chores such as getting our phones switched over to USA sim cards. Once that t-mobile 'E' symbol showed up on my iphone, I checked my emails only to find a notification from Marimekko saying "20% off sale items from today". Needless to say, I was on a subway and heading uptown!
Unfortunately I don't have any photos from the loot that I picked up at the Upper East Side store as I had them ship my items to my next destination to save on NYC tax (ah, yeah, I'm a professional shopper!) so you will need to wait for those. I did go and visit the new 'flagship store' on 5th avenue where I did make some serious savings too! I think when I added up everything from ticket price to the sale price, I saved over $700! You really don't get those type of sales back in Australia.

One of the cute dresses I picked up has these very bold horses on it. We went out for bingo last night and the black lights certainly made a crazy sight out of my dress! I had to take a photo of the glowing horses!
