Barneys Warehouse Sale: Women’s Designer Clothing

Barneys-Warehouse-Sale_womens designer clothing at up to 75% off

For me, the Barneys Warehouse Sale has been a bust so far! I stopped into the Chelsea space again last night after a friend wanted me to accompany her. We headed first to the women’s designer section since I already surveyed and reviewed shoes on the first day. Just two days into the sale… and already the selection was seriously depleted and lacking. We spent a few minutes digging through and saw nothing really special. I’m not surprised since my findings on the first day were pretty disappointing.

POSH Sale: Couture Bargains for Charity, plus High Society

For four decades, the POSH sale has kicked off every spring.  This time, New York City’s top fashion fundraiser is taking place at a new location… The Plaza Hotel. The sale is a treasure trove of new and gently worn designer clothing, accessories and footwear for women, men and children at 50 to 80 percent off the retail price. Designers include Alexander McQueen, Asprey, Bill Blass, Burberry, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Christian Dior, Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Prada and the list goes on…

We attended last night’s preview.   As with previous sales, the merchandise is well organized in separate sections/rooms in the lower level of the Plaza (vintage, contemporary and designer for the well-dressed lady and the dapper gent). Many of the shoppers have been coming to this sale for years and so they knew what they were looking for.  A room towards the back that contained all the high-end designer merchandise (including furs) is where we spent most of our time.  That’s also where I spotted the fashion icon, Iris Apfel, looking through the racks of designer wares (just like everyone else there) and hoping to find something that catches her eye.

Dispatch from Hawaii: Discount Designer Handbags in Honolulu…

While on Holiday in O’ahu, I stumbled on a discount designer handbag shop.  It wasn’t much to look at on the outside but when I walked in, I couldn’t believe the finds.  Lots of Louis Vuitton and Gucci – a few Chanels, some Prada and much more.  We were on the way to the airport with only a few minutes to look… but I got a good idea of what was on offer.

The shop is called Paris Station and they specialize in buying and reselling pre-owned high-end designer handbags and accessories.  As far as I can tell, the goods were authentic.  Since I stopped by the day after Thanksgiving, they were having a blowout sale, offering 50 to 70 percent off the ticketed price.  The shop has a website (worth checking out) where you can buy their merchandise.
