what I learned on my winter vacation

it's 11:30pm on saturday night. saturday night live is on. my mom is asleep next to me on the couch. my bags are packed and I am leaving on a jet plane back to la tomorrow morning at 7am. I have been in ny for a month now!?! that's a looong freeking time to be away from my west coast home. I'm taking this time to wrap up and share with ya'll what I learned on my winter vacation..................

I'm a serious bargain shopper. this does not mean I dont rock designer. my faves stores to shop are the outlets. specifically, off 5th, the saks outlet. while I was here, I picked up a pair of awesome michael kors 5 inch casual heels for spring for $50. reduced from $459.00?!!, a pair of isaac mizrahi red hot heels with a croched flower on the toe. $40. reduced from $220. and the most to die for yves saint laurent electric blue kitten heels for $150. from $695. can you believe??? I have a bit of a shoe fetish. get to an off 5th for killer finds.

on a side note, I think I'm in love with the new kid, andy on SNL. he cute.

meg and I checked out the morningwood show on wednesday. as lead singer chantal says, they're tits! pick up the album available in stores now.

when in new york city and find yourself on the streets on a wednesday night, head over to the baggot inn on w.3rd. there is an AMAZING bluegrass band that jams there every week.

also make sure to head over to soho, preferably broadway btwn. prince and spring for the best in cheap and homemade accessories. I picked up a fresh pair of gold aviator sunglasses for $3. and a glass blown cherry necklace for $10.

while you're at it, pop in to national wholesale liquidators (natty ho) on broadway @ houston for the bestest and cheapest bras and panties. don't mind the weird food section on the second floor. the third floor is where its at.

walk over the brooklyn bridge. its good for you. when you get to brooklyn check out the fancy footwear at dr.jay's at the fulton mall and then follow up fulton to lafayette and grab a bite to eat at olea in the old a table spot. its yummy (and owned by my old pal, chelsea). respect.

don't see sweet charity. do see almost, maine.

alright, this is long and its late. jess has left the building. I'll miss you new york. k.i.t.
