Pilar has just got to be the best person to shop with in New York. It was the first time my friend and I had been here and we were so lucky we met Pilar early in the week. She took us to designers that you could never meet on your own, with amazing wholesale prices. Just ask her and... More

My girlfriend and I took our daughters to our annual NYC trip on spring break but it was the first time that we took a shopping tour. We were glad that we did, especially using Shopping Girlfriend NYC. Pilar was great. She was friendly, professional and helpful. She asked for our fashion preferences and scheduled the showrooms accordingly. Granted that... More

We were a bit unlucky there was a fashion show on that weekend but still visited some amazing show rooms. Would like to add a special mention to kal rieman and anni... More

My daughter and I had such a great time with Pilar. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for and had so much finding it. Her knowledge and resources make this the most wonderful shopping expedition we have ever had.

My girlfriend and I have taken 4 shopping trips to NYC, and thought it might be fun to mix it up this time. Pilar made it such a fun & different afternoon! We visited three very different designers, and if we had had time, we could have ended the trip at a fourth place to shop on our own (with... More

For my birthday, my husband surprised me with the best gift ever--a Girlfriend AND a shopping spree with Pilar! She is the best Girlfriend to shop with: honest, bubbly, energetic & fun she has a keen instinct to know what would look best on ANY body without wasting time.

We went to many interesting shops and saw a lot of cool clothes. I would only take 4-5 people. 7 was too many.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
