A Busy Day at the Barneys Warehouse Sale in Chelsea...

One of the major shopping events of the year, the Barneys Warehouse sale, which happens only twice a year, started Thursday and runs through Labor Day.  At 8:30 am on the first day, the place was already packed. A line had formed outside before the doors opened.  Inside, shoppers were already rummaging through the racks, grabbing at shoes and, in one corner, peeling[...]

Looking Forward to Fall at the R.E.D Valentino Sale...

This week's  R.E.D. Valentino sale started today where clothing for both men and women are marked down up to 90 percent off.  I found plenty of items for fall and winter, mostly R.E.D Valention but also some other European designers were mixed in.  Maybe it was because of the summer temperatures we've been experiencing lately but I really wasn't in the mood to [...]

A Whole Lotta Shoe Candy at Sergio Rossi...

You'll find plenty of fun, fabulous and sexy shoes at the Sergio Rossi sample sale this week where items are marked down 50 to 75 percent off.  At around 5:30pm today, there were some great finds in all sorts of styles and colors.

Chic and Colorful Lauren Merkin Clutches and More...

I found a whole lotta clutches and more at the Lauren Merkin sample sale Tuesday.  You won't be wanting here where there were stacks and stacks of clutches in a range of colors and materials (metallics, patten croc, lambskin, fabric or just plain leather).  Also on offer were handbags, large and small.  The merchandise was marked down 40 to 70 percent. Today was the[...]

70 Percent off Bargains at Barbara Bui...

I've been a fan of Barbara Bui for years.  I love her clean, classic and timeless pieces.  A friend turned me onto the Paris-born designer a few years back when that friend managed the brand's boutique in Soho.  Since then, I've always tried to hit her sales.  Of course, I had to stop by Bui's Wooster St. boutique to check out the first day of the sale on Thur[...]

Great Deals at the Alexander McQueen Sample Sale...

You'll find plenty of deals, especially on accessories, at the Alexander McQueen sample sale which started Tuesday. I found a fairly calm scene at Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion when I stopped in around 9:30am.  Surprisingly, there was no line.  Although, at first, I did think that the extremely long wait for the Sex & the City casting call next door was th[...]

Delightfully Sexy Dresses at the Jill Stuart Summer Sale in SoHo...

The Jill Stuart boutique in SoHo was very subdued when I stopped in late Thursday to check out the two-day sale there. Although a number of racks had 40% off signs, one of the sales people came over to inform me that sale items were actually all 60% off.  Shoes are at 40% off.  If you've been searching for a special dress or just something lovely to wear, you'll[...]
