httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9BIG_vPYpw I was a bit skeptical about Target's collaboration with Liberty of London, a British brand known for its expensive fabrics of prints and mini-florals.

Escada Sample Sale: Uber deals?

I was skeptical about this week's Escada sample sale after disappointing finds at the German brand's previous sample sales.  But when a friend tipped me off on her finds ($20 for a jacket that was originally $1,700, $20 for a dress that was $1,600 and $20 for a blouse that retailed at $210), I thought I should check it out.  I stopped in Tuesday night.

Any More Discounts at Barneys Warehouse Sale???
