Happy Saturday readers! The weekend is finally here. How relieved are we? The working week, is well, just so much work. I’m so over it. Although we heard from several sources that the Recession is waning this week, including the venerable Warren Buffet, I don’t think we are all out of the woods yet. Why do I say that? Well, here in California unemployment is at an all time high, and the sales signs are up just about everywhere I turn. So, if you are still shopping, and trying to put some of your hard-earned money back into the economy to give us all the requisite “stimulus”, then I feel it’s my duty to tell you where some of the best sales are. Here is what is on the Recessionista Radar system for this weekend:
Barney’s New York annual warehouse sales are in flight. Here in Los Angeles, this is the final weekend of the sale. That means the lowest prices will be available. In the past this is when I have cruised into the sale and made my selections on the 80% off rack. My shopping trophies include my Marc Jacobs little black dress purchased for $40.00. In LA, the sale is downtown at the convention center. In NY, the sale just started and you can find it at their Chelsea Co-op: Barneys Warehouse Sale, 255 West 17th Street, (between 7th and 8th avenues); 212-450-8400
Rachel Pally is having a sample sale in downtown Los Angeles. As readers know, I am a Rachel Pally fan. Her designs are stylish and comfortable. On sale will be Spring & Summer 09 plus previous collections including White Label. Prices will be 60-80% off of the retail prices. SATURDAY, AUG. 22… 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., SUNDAY, AUG. 23… 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Here’s the address Rachel Pally, 2301 E. 7TH ST. SUITE C100 , LOS ANGELES, CA 90023
Accessible to everyone are the Macy’s One day sale and the Kohl’s sales going on now. I have to give it up to Kohl’s for their new fashions for fall. I’ll be blogging more on those soon. Meanwhile, check out this Dana Buchman necklace on sale now at Kohl’s . Yes, I bought it, because it reminds me of Coco! It’s very Coco-Less, because it’s only $20.00 US.
If you’re reading from the UK or EMEA, give the New Look sale a look. Many new reductions have been taken. I love New Look. I have to get it a look and see if any of the Giles Deacon stuff is left I do see a few of the Giles Jersey dresses on the sale
Was £20.00 £5.00 for Giles, not to be sneezed at!
