“Best $2k I Ever Spent!” Yankees Win World Series ‘09! Go To Party At 1Oak…

we would not, in good faith, be true, chic new yorkers if we didn't make mention of the yankee's world series win last night!

whether you are the yankees’ biggest fan, or you think ARod is a schmuck that gets paid way too much… if you are a new yorker you will excuse the celebratory crowds for the next couple of days and let us enjoy this win. while the crowds were a hot mess with crazy yankee fans burning philly cheese steaks (true story) and wrecking havoc on our city streets for the nypd to clean up, where did the players themselves go to celebrate? 1Oak was where the after party went down. Who was there? continue reading here

look For less: lovely louboutin — the cheapchica's guide to style

our fashion correspondent, liliana vazquez of cheap chica did a fierce job discovering louboutins for less!

i spent last weekend in new york city with my sweet husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the one thing we both love to do while we’re in the city is shop…yes, I am a lucky girl!

While we were at saks I tired on the louboutin feticha (above in black) and fell in love, unfortunately my husband did not agree…he said they looked too “smushy”! I think he was referring to the short toe box which IMO is fantastic b/c it makes your feet look tiny so if you’ve got a big foot, there shoes will give the illusion of a very small foot!

anyway, I left with dreams of all the outfits they would compliment so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw these fawson shoes at Aldo. They come in black leather, grey suede and tan suede and retail for $90 but I suspect they’ll be on sale in a few weeks so hold off… if you can resist!

nonetheless, these shoes are such a great “inspired by” version of the feticha and the perfect pump for work or play!!
