This afternoon I took my new Assistant along to shop the market with me. We hit a bunch of the big names (Prada, Furla etc)and then took a walk through Takashimaya. If you come to NYC or live here and don't visit Takashimaya- it's a pity. It's the only branch of this Japanese Department store in the USA. Everything there is, well, special. Even the bags are special!
Make sure to take time for afternoon tea too! This photo is of my Assistant enjoying the afternoon tea set we stopped for a few minutes to enjoy and rev up with! The tea set doesn't break the bank. Shown left is the East-West set --- Not bad for $18 (plus tip!)
The staff makes you feel well taken care of too.
