Hi - I cant say for Dubai as I have never been, but I was in New York and Miami in July and the prices for clothes bags and cosmetics was unreal - and the exchange rate is even better now! Did not look at the jewellry but it is approx 2 dollars to the pound - the best it has been in years. I would chose New York if it was solely for shopping, but Dubai if you wanted to combine a chill out beach holiday aswell.

personally think clothes over here are really rubbish

i prefer the u.s. and then oxford street

rings would be cheaper here though

but seems a waste to come all the way here just for a ring

Probably New York if you just want to go for shopping- wonderful exchange rate for us in UK at the moment too!

My friend thought the clothes shopping in Dubai wasn't all that great, which surprised her. She thought the styles weren't very nice.

For clothes, shoes and other accessories, I'd go for for NY!

I would say the same as others, Dubai for jewellery and New York for everything else, especially as the exchange rate is so good.

Also BA had a sale on for New York but I think it finished at midnight last night, still worth checking the deals out.

The only HUGE difference would be the temperature. Coat, gloves and scarf or bikini ????????? Do you want to go forward in time or backwards ????? Do you want to jump a yellow cab or a smelly white one ???? either way on that one you will be battling traffic !!

So many decisions what is a girl to do?

Let us know your decision xx

Went to New York and Dubai last year within a month of one another. I would recommend NY for shopping especially for clothes as there is more choice, also I didn't really like the gold jewellery in Dubai. NY also good for electronics.....just be careful you wear everything when you come back incase customs check all your bags!!
