Barneys Warehouse Sale

I held out as long as I could but yesterday I broke down and went to the Barneys Warehouse Sale. It was definitely slim pickins’ but the markdowns were good — extra 60% off designer pieces, extra 50% off shoes, and extra 25% off contemporary. Lame part was, they closed at 5pm and my crew and I didn’t get there until 3pm. Which meant when 5pm rolled around we weren’t even close to being done but the employees definitely were. So sadly I only walked out with two items; a Jil Sander dress and an Ann Demeulemeester tank. However if time and money had permitted it, I would have left with more because a ton of stuff looked pretty darn amazing on me!! I needed more time to think before plunging into the purchase. You know?

Here is the dress I bought:


Here are some of the items that I almost went home with:

This beaded vest was totally cool but didn’t make the cut

This dress was so beautiful on me, all it needed was a little chop of the hemline. I’m sad I left this at the store

These boots were so weird but so cool. Really pissed I didn’t get these, they were dirt cheap too. Dang it.

There was also a totally HOT Givenchy jacket. It was sooooo amazing but still too expensive even with the extra 60% off the lowest marked price.

I guess its best that I didn’t go crazy at the sale because my trip to NYC is coming up and you know how I feel about Century 21 AND the Barneys Warehouse Sale will be in NYC while I’m there too. Man, I love a good sale.
