Stranded Island Fashion Games: The Mango Edition

Let's say you're stranded on a not-so-deserted island, like Manhattan, and you can only wear one single line of clothing (and look fabulous in all of it, of course). Well, I've got the line for you, and it's now on 34th Street.

Mango's Premium collection. It's flawless. It's island-ready (if that island is Manhattan) and it won't break your bank.  
Kimono $129.99, palazzo trouser and kimono-style gilet $69.99.

Cropped top $49.99, boxy sweatshirt $59.99.

Kimono-belt trousers $79.99.

And there's more: great cropped sweaters and trousers and a perfect chunky knit sweater, among several other perfect items. Can you tell I adore this collection? I tried on several pieces last week and I want it all for fall. Yes, I could joyfully get by this autumn in New York with just this collection!

Now Open: Pandora Herald Square

Congratulations to Adam Gindi of Diamonds & Dials, who just opened a new Pandora concept store in Herald Square. It's a gorgeous new addition to this block just south of 34th Street on Broadway, next door to Gap Herald Square.

Adam is one of the last independent owner/operators on 34th Street. He recently closed Diamonds & Dials Herald Square, but is still entrenched in the 34th Street district with Diamonds & Dials Greeley Square and this new Pandora store. I highly recommend visiting Adam in one of his locations (they are practically in shouting distance from each other), as his ebullient personality and flawless customer service will keep you coming back for more.

Updated to add: We visited Adam Gindi today in Pandora, and the boutique is looking great!

Pandora Herald Square
Now open at 1284 Broadway just south of 34th Street
