When I moved to NYC I felt like my wardrobe was drab and lacking the trendy edge I was suddenly surrounded by. Stifled with the daunting task of replacing/upgrading all of my clothes, I asked a clothing designer friend for tips on affordable places to shop in the city. Her words of advice? Keep my clothes and accessorize!

Now when shopping I look for two things: simple, classic clothing items that won’t go out of style and statement pieces to spice up my wardrobe, such as jewelry, jackets and belts. Where do you find accessory steals?
