This weekend was very exciting for upper westsiders and tourists alike. After a summer of anticipation, everybody's favorite Soho one-stop-shop finally opened its newest flagship in The Shops at Columbus Circle. The grand opening was like a candy-coated carnival, think popcorn and lemonade, photobooth and DJ, raffles and giveaways, a giant gumball machine and an enormous stuffed teddy bear. As you can imagine, it was easy to get distracted from actually shopping with all the fun going on, but I'll be back this week to check out a few pieces of jewelry and a table setting that caught my eye. So happy to have this colorful haven in the neighborhood - shopping here is like instant happiness!
