While in town from NYC to visit boyfriend Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo hit L.A.'s paparazzi superhighway, aka Robertson Blvd., to do a little pre-weekend damage on Friday. A girl needs something to wear to Hyde!

Minnillo, without El Lachey, browsed her way through the hip Madison boutique before paying for her purchase with cash. 'Ness knows interest rates are a bitch!

Vanessa's mini-shopping spree proves that a girl can't live on BONGO jeans alone.
