I made the shortest trip ever into the city today - a grand total of one and a half hours pretty much entirely spent at Té Casan, a shoe boutique in SoHo made famous by Natalie Portman’s vegan shoe collection sold there. The COO is a member of 85 Broads, a women’s career networking organization, and hosted this shopping/networking party at Té Casan for the women of 85 Broads. I’ve been a member of 85 Broads for a year and decided to go check it out.
Essentially a shopping party for loaded career women means lots of shnazzy pantsuits, champagne, and trying on boxes upon boxes of $400 shoes. As a poor college kid I can’t actually afford limited edition designer boots (although I tried a few pairs on and they’re SO comfortable/cute I almost died). Nor did I have a lot of time to stick around and schmooz. But it definitely brought the store to my attention since I frequent SoHo a lot and for some reason have never gone far enough west to find Té Casan. I was also able to talk to Ayesha D’Souza, the hostess, who is gorgeous and seems like a typical 85 Broads woman - ibanker who went to Wharton and now runs a retail startup business - fabulous and successful and glamorous!
So I encourage ya’ll to check out two things today: Té Casan’s website and the 85 Broads website. The former is best for shoe fanatics and the latter is best for any college or working girls who want to get ahead by networking with women such as Ayesha. Both are fabulous.
I’ll leave off with some pictures of the Té Casan flagship store and an explanation of their name that I stole off their website because I think it’s quite cute:
The name Té Casan (tae-ca-sahn), “A Woman’s Path”, is Gaelic and originates from the inspiration of a global name that represents no specific nation or language and refers to all women. The search for the name was conducted on three different continents. continents. It defines a universal identity with all women but belonging to no one particular country, place or person. The name embraces the legacy and strength of all women; of women, for women.
