Following the Markdowns Update

Earlier this season, we took stock of our readers' most wanted items. As sale season heats up, we thought it would be a good idea to check in on the objects of our obsession and their markdown status.

1. Chloe Elsie Large Satchel $1395

Follow Up: The Elsie has not made it on sale in department stores or the boutique. A great alternative is the Abby, which is 40% off at Chloe boutiques. The sale price for the large Abby is about $1115 from $1875.

2. Givenchy Nightingale $1900-$2300

Follow Up: As expected, this puppy is going to be difficult to find on sale. Not may stores carry Givenchy bags, which makes the task even tougher. Bluefly has a host of Givenchy bags, which are about 30% off and the Melancholia is on sale at Barneys for $839 from $1405.

Follow Up: This coat was reduced to 50% off at Missoni boutiques, in mid-November, but is currently all sold out.

4. Cesare Paciotti heels $500-$600

Follow up: Almost anyone will admit that Louboutins are a bit overplayed. We thought it would be fun to expand our shoe horizons. Most shoes are now 30% off at the Cesare Paciotti boutique and a limited styles and bags are 50% off.

Follow Up: We guessed that you would be able to snag this little number for at least 30% off but it's now 40% off or $474.

Follow Up: When we first posted about this dress it was already reduced to $528. There have been no further reductions.

Follow up: We first predicted that this necklace should go to 50% off but it's still just 30% off or $342. We still think it will get reduced further. If you're looking for a better deal now, browse through the selection on Oscar's website. This exact piece is exclusive to Saks but there is still a great selection and it's all 40% off.

Follow up: This it bag is now $499 at Barneys but the Alexander Wang sample sale is next week. We bet a few early insiders can snag this style bag for under $400.

Follow Up: As previously reported, Alexander Wang's online store marked these beauties down 40%. Unfortunately, they are now all sold out. At Barneys they are now $539 but finding them may be difficult, unless you are a size 11. The bright side is that they do run very small.

Follow Up: The bad news is that this exact style did not make it markdown. However, the more sporty version, with a shearling lining is now 50% off or $490 from $980.
