When it comes to shopping in New York, you can never have enough expert advice, right? And what better way to discover the hidden gems and best places to shop in a city than with a little help from stylish locals. So let's tap into the very best sources to uncover urban style and fashion trends and ask stylistas, beauty and fashion bloggers to share their city's best kept local secrets, basically their personal shopping guide. 


We've chatted to Grace, writer of the fashion and DIY blog Stripes & Sequins, to share with us her insider tips to shopping in New York. Aside from a soft spot for indie beauty brands, vintage fashion and "all things French...", like she says, Grace actually has a solid background in fashion, so we bet this woman knows a thing or two about where to stop and shop in New York

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU GO SHOPPING?
Things that are different and fun... I don't want to look like everybody else! And I'm always on the prowl for the perfect striped tee!

THE BEST SPOTS FOR SHOPPING IN YOUR CITY
I love shopping on 5th Ave in the Flatiron district - J.Crew, Zara, all of my favorites! I also love the Young Designer's Market in SoHo, Otte, and Poppy


WHICH UNIQUE LOCAL FASHION BRANDS DO YOU FANCY? 
Khepri NYC is a favorite- I love that all of the bags are crafted locally, from 100% recycled and/or vintage materials!
 
DRINK & DINE IN STYLE
I love going out to eat in the West Village. So many great little sidewalk cafes - it feels a bit European!  Some of my personal favorite spots in the city to go out to eat are Morandi, ABC Kitchen, Pastis, Kin Shop, Ilili, and Le Charlot.
