LaCrasia NYC: Grand Central’s Gem

So, you can imagine how completely thrilled I was this morning when I stumbled upon one of NYC’s hidden gems – LaCrasia. This mini boutique is tucked away in the Lexington Passage of Grand Central Station. LaCrasia is totally tiny, but it’s jam-packed with the most exquisite accessories I have ever seen. Their scarves, handbags and jewelry are all designed with luxurious fabrics and stunning gems.

Oh, by the way – LaCrasia’s past clientele includes Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Whitney Houston and Prince! The boutique also designs the gloves for just about every Broadway show in NYC. They have a great website with all sorts of awesome gloves: If you don’t go check out this shop immediately, you’re crazy!
