Flavors, 100 West 23rd St. NYC

I honestly haven't met yet these crazy sales in New York City. Most of the stuff I bought already are new collection. My friends told me about this impressive outlet village where they sell everything from designer brands to sportswear, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. Apparently it's like a village where all these brands have outlet stores there. My friends told me it's worth the trip to Jersey and I convinced my sister to spend a day there.

After the tough few days, it was time for some luck to come our way. My sister Nella and I were looking forward to sleeping in on that Saturday morning, (well at least for me!

But you can't help it, on fifth avenue, you've got to stop and shop. But what we did mostly was window shopping, we did not have much time if we were to stick to our cultural day plans! 
I shopped around BCBG Max Azria and found really nice items for what I thought was an unbeatable price. After that, I just entered a random shop that was liquidating and got lucky with a black rabbit fur jacket with cropped sleeves, which I thought was lovely to show off your jewellery on your wrists for a night out. The jacket was only for 220$. I left the shop empty-handed because I was rushed by Nella. The sophomore architect major was longing for her visit at the museum. When we arrived at the MoMA, a young man approached us to sell us his tickets. We bought them for less the price with an wntry to see Marisse's exhibition "The Cut-outs". 
The timed ticket suited us very well and ai thought that If it wasn't for that guy, we might have waited a pretty long time not only to buy the ticket but also to be able to enter Mariase's exhibition.
