It's a rainy summer day here in New York today- and in fact, it's supposed to be wet most of the weekend. While most people hate the rain, I love it because it reminds me of another great international city...London!

London, England has so much history (Tower of London, Palace of Westminster & Westminster Abbey- to name a just a few), it's completely walkable, has a fantastic metro system to get around called the Underground, and it's so hip and trendy when it comes to fashion.

Now I know some of you may be thinking- to heck with London right now, the U.S. dollar isn't worth anything to the British pound! And in fact you are right so I won't argue with you about that. However, I would say it still may be Smart to Jet Set there now because there are some inexpensive airfares and some good deals on hotel rooms. In fact, I just looked and there are flights for the month of September starting at $180 round trip (not including taxes & fees) on Air Europa.

But, if it's not for you at the moment, you can still shop like you're in London without having to hop on a seven hour flight. TOPSHOP started over in the UK, and now even has a store in New York. It's my new, all-time favorite store because you can get "High Street Fashion" without breaking the bank. The Brittany2 over the knee boots and navy lace blazer are just two of my most desired things from there right now!
