Bloomingsales Season Ending Sale

Bloomingdales is closing out the season like Lindsay Lohan at a bar. Bottoms up!

Shoes that have already been discounted 50% to 60% are an additional 50% off. We saw Chloe wedges, YSL heels and a scattering of other non memorable brands on the super sale rack.

Making our way across the fourth floor, we found the best deals in what we like to consider the young designer boutique. A rack of Brayen Reyes winter merchandise is an extra 50% off already reduced price for a total savings of about 80% off. A black and white reptile print dress is $379 from $1895 and lime silk dress is $300 from $1495.

Over on the additional 40% off rack, we found Lisa Perry black and white wool dresses with a final price of $386 from $1595, a Lela Rose top was $395 and now $98 and a Jean Paul Gaultier frock now $200 from $795. There are even Herve Leger dresses mixed in for under $440.

Further across the floor, the more established designers are heavily discounted as well. Marc Jacobs is a further 40% off already reduced prices. A black and white floral print silk dress was $995 and is now $360 and a gorgeous turquoise wool coat is about $600 from $1800.

The pinnacle of our shopping afternoo, however, was found in the Chanel boutique. A long cashmere cardigan with gold tirm and double-C buttons was $1,000 from $3,000.

On second thought we may have been more amused by the Agent Provocateur "accessories," which are now 2/3s off. A leather and brass "Ruxandra Cuff" was $290 and is now "just" $100. Sweetheart, Valentines day is about a month away. It's never too early to think ahead!

I just went to the one in NYC - and it was horrible - the selection was weak - and the discounts weren't good. You really don't even need to waste your time. Most of the stuff is just an additional 30% off - when it's an additional 50% off maybe then it'd be worthy.
