On my bedside table
NYC = my favourite place in the whole world.
Sibella Court = fabulous Aussie stylist who lived in NYC for 10ish years.
'The Stylist's Guide to NYC'= her address book of amazing shops, places to eat/drink, museums, suppliers and inspirations.
From the super-embossed cover, the Moleskine-esque pockets, the elastic bookmark, the divine earthy paper and that quintessential good book smell, not to mention all of the gobsmacking places to visit, it's official, I'm in love.
Listed in sections such as Scents and Flower Merchants, Haberdashery and Handmade, Art and Objets, Sibella has a map and an itinerary which includes coffee and sustenance along the way. She includes handy tips for visiting NYC, (carry flats and heels), phone numbers and zip codes, a big pull-out map, and great photos and descriptions.
I'm planning my next holiday there based around this book.
Hurrah for the current exchange rate!
