Youâ€™re starting to get a little bored of the same shopping in the same stores over and over again. Plus, you and the girl who sits behind you at work have been wearing the same outfits for the past two weeks. Itâ€™s about time to up your wardrobe game and check out some of NYCâ€™s coolest boutiques for the trendiest clothes, bags, and shoes. Boutiques are great because they outsource from brands you might have never seen before. Who knows, you might find a whole new style youâ€™ll fall in love with.
Down in Chelsea youâ€™ll find Anthom, a bright and open space that actually used to be an art gallery. This space now holds the â€˜artâ€™ of fashion labels like Dyanna Lynnyk, Ksenia Schnaider, and Przhonskaya. Itâ€™s the only place in the United States where you can find their products.
