I'm a huge fan of French designer Barbara Bui.  For that reason, I try to hit her sample sales when I can.  The designer is holding her fall/winter sample sale this weekend, Sunday is the last day. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxSxHCgqSJ8 I popped in on Saturday to find out that I was a day too late.  I love her jackets and trousers (perfect fit and fabulous[...]

I was going to wait until Friday to go to the Staff USA sale.  But after getting details from a Sally source and Racked, I thought I'd check out the merchandise Thursday night.  Martin Margiela, DSquared, and Victor & Rolf have pooled their garments, offering at least 60% off clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories for both men and women. At first, I was conf[...]

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3c05qbPXnE After hitting so many mobbed sample sales lately, the serene scene at Roberto Cavalli's sample sale Wednesday night seemed strange.  There were half a dozen shoppers there looking through the racks, two of them men.  I expected more customers.  But this was the preview sale.  Maybe it was just the calm before Thursday[...]

Sale Flash:  Gunmetal Delivers to size 37...

Word from a Sally source on the Gunmetal shoe sale in Chelsea... it's not as highly trafficked as the Thomas Pink give-away.  If you're a size 37, you reportedly will do well.  Here's what she writes: Great sale if you are a size 37 (90% of shoes) Shoes seem a few years old. Only $75 for shoes and $150 for boots and handbags. No line... Gunmetal is selling h[...]

Real Deals at Elie Tahari...

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4a-P_jC2yFg I was surprised to find a line outside the Elie Tahari sample sale Tuesday night.  According to one of the security guards, at least 1,000 customers had walked through the doors on this first day of the sale.  Inside, it was bustling with shoppers looking through the racks.  An abundance of clothing is on offer, mostly[...]
