There's still plenty to be had at the Yves Saint Laurent friends-and-family sale at W. 18th Street.  The after work crowd had gathered outside the Metropolitan Pavilion Wednesday night.  I found a much smaller line than the one early in the morning.  Inside, there were racks of clothing for both men and women.  More items for women than men.  I spotted plenty of [...]

Shoe Heaven for size 37…

If you're shoe size is a 37 (which I am), you should hot foot it to the Gunmetal shoe sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea.  The Italian-made footwear is every bit as gorgeous as Manolo and Jimmy Choo.  And, what a deal!  All shoes are $75 (originally $595-$795), boots are going for $150 (originally $1,200).  The sale offers plenty of sexy and fabulous heel[...]

Bing Bang Bling at Anna Sheffield...

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4OhyANO5II I went to Bing Bang and Bespoke designer Anna Sheffield's jewelry sale hoping to find Holiday gifts and I wasn't disappointed.  I left there buying two mixed metal necklaces (under $50 each) and a sterling silver festive egg bangle set ($43). I really love her designs and her use of metals, especially her rock and roll-y [...]
