Follow up: Barneys Warehouse Sale... the Scoop on Men's Items

There is one reason to hit the Barneys Warehouse sale early:  the men's suits.  In the first few days, you'll find some high-end designer suits.  The really nice suits tend to go fast and by the end of the sale, there's not much left to choose from. I stopped in Friday night with my BF  just to check out the merchandise in the men's section downstairs where[...]

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 [...]

Richard Chai Sample Sale Update...

I checked out the Richard Chai sample sale at the end of the day Tuesday at his showroom on Grand St in Soho.  It was fairly quiet except for two women who were clearly fans of the designer.  They had found success and were purchasing a number of pieces. At this sale, you’ll get 50 to 80 percent off Chai's women's 2008 collection from spring, resort and a h[...]

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[...]
