Aritzia Store Opening
There is nothing more exciting than having your favorite boutiques follow you to new places. As a Canadian transplant, I have long awaited Aritzia’s arrival in Manhattan and today it finally happened.
The boutique shopping experience that is Aritzia, makes a customer feel comfortable, zen and excited about trying everything and anything on. If that weren’t enough, there is even a enormous wood carving of a hand pitted in a base of crystals to give you good luck as you enter the changing rooms. (Maybe it will make those un-wanted areas disappear???)
I pilfered through racks and racks of soft blouses mixed with leather vests, shorts and bodycon dresses, making me wish I could spend my whole paycheck in one place, pondering the idea of whether I’d be evicted should I decide to pay my rent a month late.
Truth be told, I could never be that irrespponsible, but looking at all the gorgeous pieces from “le Fou”, Aritzia’s private label, I was oh-so tempted.
If for no other reason than to glare at the large crystals or to stare and the paw prints of a rabbit as you climb your way to the second floor of retail therapy, make your way to Aritzia’s new Soho location and consider yourself that much closer to shopping zen.
