So you didn't have the patience for the Christian Louboutin sample sale? Don't feel bad, we didn't either. Not to fret, we have received word that the boutique's private sale will take place on December 3. The discount is usually 40% and only includes seasonal styles. We know money could be saved by waiting on a sample sale line for hours but we rather save our sanity.
The Madison Avenue boutique has started presale on their fall and winter collection. The markdown is 30% off and the sale officially starts December 1. If you can, hold off for the second markdown, which is usually 50%.
Madison Avenue newcomer, Reed Krakoff has started their very first presale. We are pleased with the precedent they are marking by starting with a 40% discount on select handbags, ready-to-wear, footwear, small leather goods and accessories. Although the brand's first shoe collection was great, we found it to be a bit expensive. We say buy-pass the overpriced Coach handbags and shoes and take time examining the very well finished and stylish ready-to-wear. The collection was both chic and well priced.
