I'm so overwhelmed with all the sales going on, I think my head is starting to spin. Left and right, news of sales are going on. I think with the economy's current state (isn't it crazy that almost every other post goes back to the current state of the economy?), people are taking advantage of sales especially with the holidays coming up. Every website and every email I receive brings news of sales or additional mark downs. I guess it's the only incentive retailers have to keep consumers buying because if you go to the mall these days, it's scary how empty it is.

While I love giving presents, I'm not one who buys presents early (speaking of which I still have your birthday present K, sorry). I usually wait until a week before Christmas to buy presents. I think it's the extra pressure I thrive on. This year, I might have to take advantage of the sales...MIGHT being the operative word. We'll see. If I see a good enough deal, I'll let you know. In the meantime, these are the sales I know of:

Nordstrom - presale ongoing for Thanksgiving (must contact local SAs for info)
Burberry - 30% starting tomorrow
Saks - this weekend, and also early bird specials on Black Friday
NM - presale officially starts tomorrow but if you have an existing relationship with an SA then good for you, also extra 15% off if you use your NM card
YSL - 40% starts Friday (online and in stores although you'll probably have better luck in stores)
Revolveclothing.com - 30% off with code until Friday only (email me if you want the code)

Sample sales: (email me for info)
Marked Showroom - at the Cooper Bldg. this Thursday and Friday
William Rast/People's Liberation - this Saturday and Sunday
Citizens of Humanity - at the OC, this Saturday and Sunday
Seychelles and BC Shoes - warehouse sale this weekend

Enjoy!!! Oh, and make sure you share your finds with me!!!

BNY Private Sale

This week only!!! The selection in stores wasn't that great but that doesn't mean you can't find anything. It just means you have to look extra hard. And if you don't find anything, go next door to Saks! The Saks Designer Sale ends today (supposedly).

Happy Shopping!!!

Holiday Shoes

Now that the holiday season is upon us, it's time to break out the glitzy shoes for all those holiday parties!!! I'm usually not a fan of embellished shoes because most of the time they look too ostentatious for me. However, once in a while, I come by a pair that is embellished but will look so perfect against the holiday backdrop that it makes me weak at the knees.

Take these Manolos, for example. I would have just passed this shoe off as another over-embellished evening sandal but something about it screams elegance. I still can't figure out what I like about this shoe but I can't stop staring.

This Fendi sandal is all about understated elegance. I love the champagne color because it easily goes with black or brown hues. The rhinestones on the strap add just a hint of glitz so that it won't overpower your cocktail dress. And, when the holidays are over, these babies go so well with jeans!

Oh Miu Miu...I'm still not sure about the comfort level of Miu Miu shoes because the pair I own hurt like a MF but these shoes are SO cute! I love the embellished heel. Like the Fendis, this shoe has an understated elegance that is so perfect for the holiday season. The rose copper color also makes the shoe stand out from the sea of silver and gold shoes of the holidays.

Shoes available at Barneys.

Are you ready?

In LA, the collection will only be available at the stores on Sunset Blvd. and in the Beverly Center. If you want a piece, you have to be ready to stand in line before the stores even open. Good luck!!
