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[...]

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[...]

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[...]
