Baubles and bangles and bags…oh my. It’s a British invasion of the most delightful sort at Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, as Accessorize, the groovy UK retailer of all things, well, to accessorize, opens its first New York store…tomorrow!
Find some 2,500 fanciful, fun and get this, affordably priced items to glam up your look at this cheery eclectic bazaar.
Want to know what they’ve got?
Everything from military-inspired to boho looks in loads of categories: handbags, jewelry, belts, hats, shoes, gloves and hairbands…and more. The jewelry selection is off the charts including a hip, embellished cuff ($20), a cool, little watch-ring ($16), and grannyesque pearl bow brooch ($15). In the pocketbook department we love the Union Jack sequin bag ($58) and for girls who like to dress up their hair, find a great assortment of bands, ribbons, clips and even a darling ruffle flower in purple ($10).
The British-born chain was established in 1984 and today has over 750 stores all over the world including in France, Spain and Italy. Clients include Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Bar Refaeli – even big name models love a little cheap chic now and then. Currently, supermodel Lily Aldrige is the face of Accessorize.
The store is located on the second floor near the grand elevator near the food court. You can check out the goods at www.accessorize.com.
