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[...]

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[...]

Slim Pickings at the Anbar Shoes Closeout Sale in TriBeCa...

Anbar Shoes, the designer discount shoe store in TriBeCa, is hosting a closing sale.  I dropped by the shop on 60 Reade Street yesterday to check out the goods and prices.  The place was pretty much picked over.  I did spot a handful of jewels but I really had to look hard.  A pair of Lanvin pumps are $207 (originally $945), Mui Mui stiletto's for $200 (origin[...]

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[...]

Cavalli Sample Sale:  Couture, Color but not a lot of Deals

It's a rare occurrence for Roberto Cavalli to hold a sample sale.  Apparently, the Italian designer's last official sample sale was three years ago.  Monday night, a few shoppers were at the Altman building in Chelsea browsing the racks.  The brand's ready-to-wear and couture collections are discounted at up to 80% off the regular price. But even on sale, most item[...]
