Sigerson Morrison sale

Sigerson Morrison sale

Sigerson Morrison shoes are de rigueur for style-conscious New Yorkers.  I'm a big fan of FIT grads Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison's simple, clean and modern designs.  When I use to live in Nolita, I would stop by the chic little shop on Prince Street to check out the season's new styles. For months, I've been waiting for this sale to finally take place.  So [...]

Furla Handbag Sale

Furla Handbag Sale

The Italian handbag maker Furla was taking up to 70 percent off handbags, shoes, and accessories on April 22-23rd.  There were a lot of 80's inspired bags - an ongoing trend that won't go away.  Not a lot of stuff at the sale caught my eye, except for a red hobo with silver straps - the $395 price tag was a bit costly for what it was.  

Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

I bought my first Francesco Biasia handbag in Rome before they were available in New York.  Back then, I didn't know what I had.  I just knew that it was a chic Italian-made handbag of exquisite leather.  When I travel abroad, I try to look for interesting unique things that can't be found here.  Of course, when I learned about this week's Francesco Biasia sale, I h[...]

Brooklyn Flea is back...

A sure sign that spring has sprung... On this perfect Saturday after such a long winter, Brownstoner's Brooklyn flea in Ft.

Kooba Handbag Sale

Kooba Handbag Sale

  The Kooba sale is worth it if you're a fan of the handbags.  The place was crowded when I stopped in after work with evidence of a buying frenzy.   Women were digging into boxes - some of them clutching at least five bags.   A long line had formed at the cash register.  Most items were marked under $200; large handbags between $150-$225 and small ones priced[...]

J.Crew Sample Sale - get the scoop...

  A line had formed outside the J.Crew sample sale when I arrived around 6pm tonight. Inside, it was crammed with women going through racks of sweaters ($30-60), shirts ($30) and dresses ($60).  I went to see if I could score a cashmere sweater.  I wasn't in the mood for looking through the racks of mostly samples.  SAMPLE written in black marker inside the [...]
