One of the bigger happenings this week is slightly less frivolous on the stateside, as we had just completed the midterm elections, and to some's dismay and some's joy, the US House is now largely dominated by the Republicans, with the Republicans controlling 239 seats, and the Democrats with 188 seats. In New York, Paladino lost the Governor seat to Cuomo. Politics aside, New York City has been taken over by the Kardashian sisters, who had just opened the New York store of their boutique, DASH. On the same night as the DASH opening, Dr. Martens finally gets its stand-alone store in SoHo, with Burberry and Chanel as its chic neighbors. The weather continues to drop, but on Halloween night, the streets were taken over by NY Bridge Runners who are determined to celebrate the big party occasion with a little cardio instead of alcohol. adidas Originals released new winter-ready shoes for the colder weather, and NBA heats up with spotlight on new blood like John Wall, who had his NYC debut at the Madison Square Garden this past week, and of course, the man of insane assists, Rajon Rondo. Catch up on key things not to be missed before the week is over after the jump.
