What You'll Get
Shopping, like scaling a mountain, is best done with a professional guide to avoid being left in the cold with nothing but a counterfeit handbag. Prevent sartorial stranding with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a three-hour custom shopping tour in New York City from Stylista Shopping Tours (a $125 value).
Stylista Shopping Tours conduct fashion aficionados on apparel-centric excursions tailored to individual tastes and budgets. The three-hour custom shopping tour hones in on vintage, luxury, home-furnishing, lingerie, or new local designers on the verge of unraveling the macramé wall to the fashion elite. Stylista’s professional, native guides whip up detailed itineraries, organizing stores by neighborhood and price range. Each section of the itinerary contains detailed notes on the neighborhood filled with historical tidbits, anecdotes about famous residents, and coded messages leading to a Masonic jewelry vault.
Guides can also grant access to select show rooms and designers, giving fashion fans a unique look behind the fancy fabric curtain. Tours are led on foot and via public transportation using a transit card provided by the tour. Each custom tour offers a unique opportunity to learn about the city and discover new shopping sites, making it a fun group activity for special occasions, such as bachelorette parties or sweet 16s.
The Fashion Spot featured Stylista Shopping Tours:
- Having a knowledgeable guide can make the difference between having an enjoyable, authentic shopping experience versus being caught in a disappointing sojourn where lots of money is spent, with the bargains few and far between. Eliza Parrilla, founder of Stylista Shopping Tours NYC (Stylista), can give you that winning advantage. – William S. Gooch, Fashion Spot
