Before I started packing for the big weekend I stopped by Prada to see if there were any further reductions. Why do laundry and pack old clothing if you can pick up something new? Turns out that there will be no more reductions at Prada. As a matter of fact all Spring/Summer merchandise is being sent away Monday. To where, nobody knows. I always imagine it to be some sort of clothing heaven where racks of clothing peacefully rest for eternity. It's more likely an outlet.
As a mere formality I ran into Miu Miu too. The sales people were less assured of the supreme plan but Judith was forthcoming about Barneys having a great selection, which is highly reduced. Even on the Barneys site there are some great buys. This Prada double ring flat started off at $530 and is now 50% or $265. I'm almost sure that the gladiator look will only be bigger next Spring. Just beware when shopping online at Barneys. They frequently oversell their inventory and several days later cancel orders. Don't be surprised if what you see is not what you get.
PS Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
