If you adore Banana Republic; you’ve got to go to their shop on Broadway in SOHO. Yes, all the BR shops are having their after holiday sale, but this one has the best selection and the best prices. Saturday, I picked up a pair of pumps originally $182.00 for $19.97. Cashmere, separates, underpinnings, and more were marked down to insanely great prices. Sorry boys, I don’t know what was happening in the BR Men’s shop, being a single woman, I was just spending money on me. I’m sure the sale there is just as good, they wouldn’t want to leave you out in the cold.

Catch Bright Eyes and Tilly and The Wall at the Town Hall, Jan 25- 27th. Tickets are available through ticketmaster.

I just wanted to pass on a great winter skin care tip I learned from the pros at Acqua Beauty Bar (7 E. 14th Street). When you enjoy their manicure, one of the lovely things they do to your mitts is to exfoliate them. This sloughs off dead skin and makes your hands very soft. The next time you’re in the shower, try it. Grab your sugar scrub or favorite exfoliater and massage your hands into softness. They’ll love you for it.
