When you live in New York, you tend to get recommendations of what’s new, hot and fabulous from your friend, coworkers, colleagues or from the magazines and blogs we rely upon regularly. I thought it might be fun to ask designers, stylists and other tastemakers where they hang out in NYC. You saw the interview a couple of weeks ago with Alice + Olivia designer, Stacey Bendet. Here, the designer gives us her picks on what to do, see, eat and experience in her New York City. Hey Stacey, what are your favorite places to:
Eat? Sushi, or vegan food from Blossom.
Have a cocktail? Kenmare (in Nolita) or random LES margarita spots.
Shop? Online, vintage, DEAR on the LES
Do yoga/workout? Ashtanga yoga with Eddie Stern
Relax and unwind? My apartment!
Have a day of beauty? Omg, who has time?!? I get a facial from Eloise’s banana-covered palms.
Have a little peace and quiet? Malibu!
Party until dawn? Kenmare followed by Boom Boom Room at The Standard.
Spend time with your daughter? She is my buddy! I take her everywhere! We love to go to Sundaes and Cones for ice cream for a treat!
Get out there and check out some of Stacey’s picks from the city! And, of course, keep it tuned here for more fabulous NYC picks from amazing talent from around the worlds of fashion, style and beauty!
