Elegant Tightwad Shopping Excursions has garnered press from media outlets such as CNN for its tours behind the scenes in Manhattan’s Garment District featuring designer fashions at wholesale and less. In showrooms so private they blush at the sight of strangers, up to 12 participants at a time browse in-season clothes by in-demand designers and sometimes even ones such as Gucci and Prada. Personal shoppers lead small tour groups for up to four hours depending on the size of the group, helping participants cull the most flattering and budget-friendly pieces from a parade of silver-tongued styles, selling for at least half off retail price. Customers also get a detailed list of sales going on throughout the city, allowing them to continue their own bargain hunts after the tour is over.

Elegant Tightwad Tasting Excursions

When it came time to name her business, Pamela Parisi looked to her own nickname: The Elegant Tightwad. She earned the moniker during 20 years spent in the fashion industry as a clothing designer, manufacturer, and mannequin guidance counselor. Parisi developed a reputation for her conflicting loves for designer clothes and fiscal responsibility. Always a problem solver, she quickly learned to marry her two passions by developing extensive knowledge of designer showrooms and the wholesale prices they charge. Today, she uses her nose for bargains to guide tour groups to the best deals on designer clothes and accessories. Her cash-saving tours have even garnered the attention of CNN and Elle magazine. In addition to her Garment District Diva tours, Parisi has also extended her expertise into the world of food. Her tasting excursions explore some of the most tempting eats in Hell's Kitchen, from Italian and Greek specialties to sweet treats from bakeries and ice cream shops.
