Barney's Warehouse Sale: oh sigh, why don't I live in New York?
Y'all know how I constanly bemoan the lack of certain much-loved shops in these here parts.
Well, this just in from fashionista.com. And sidenote: why oh why oh why don't I live in New York City?
"It's crazy, it's overwhelming, it makes you want to scream...
It's the Barneys Warehouse Sale.
But is it worth braving the insanity?
We did this morning, and you should too, if:
-You really wanted a pair of those satin cap-toe platforms Lindsay wore in the Miu Miu ads. There are lots, and they're marked down to $235.
-You need a pair of pants for work. There are piles of basic black, white, and tan slacks from Jil Sander and Balenciaga in the $130-300 range...
There's also the usual clutch of DVF dresses (some nice Vena Cava, too), mountains of Loomstate hoodies, a lonely feathered Giles gown, tons of Rick Owens tube tops ($50), and lots of great stuff from Balenciaga's capsule collections (Knits, Silk, Pants).
I picked up a Balenciaga shell ($99) and pants ($138)..."
LIKE, WHAT???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I'M DYING INSIDE. I'M DYING. EVERY MOLECULE INSIDE ME IS VIBRATING WITH JEALOUSY.
Maybe I can run away to New York and no one will notice.
