Holiday shopping is no easy task and it’s safe to say that most of us complete this chore at the very last minute and heavily rely on perfectly curated gift guides ;). However, if you’re trying to be on top of your shopping, you can turn this Black Friday into a productive one and take advantage of all the pop-ups that New York City has to offer. From beauty to fashion to wellness, there’s a pop up for every occasion.
Part of the infamous Inditex group and sister company to Zara, Bershka is a Spanish retailer that caters to the trendiest demographics. With product assortment similar to Zara, you can bet you’ll get fashion-forward pieces such as a faux fur coat and this incredible blazer for about the same price.
