Last Days: Warehouse La Perla Blowout Sale

That the mid-town warehouse sale, featuring La Perla was very, very good but it's about to get extreme.  Like all great affairs, this one must come to an end but not without a grand gesture. Starting Friday morning, all merchandise will be reduced to $40 and under!

Earlier this week, we went to check out the La Perla merchandise ourselves and cannot emphasize enough what a good sale this is. We spotted gorgeous silk patterned sarongs that are now going to be $20, there are caftans marked $200 that are just $30, there are $20 bikinis (top and bottom), sequined or mesh coverups are $30 (the retail prices are several hundred dollars), pajama sets and, of course, bras are $30 each or four for $100. Panties that were marked as high as $220 at retail area all just $18 a pair. There is also a super assortment of La Perla Studio merchandise that's reduced to 10 pairs for just $100 or $12 each.

You can see pictures of all the La Perla items we loved from the sale. Take note, this is a grab and go blowout sale. The fitting rooms will not be available and all sales are final. On the bright side, the sales help are super nice and helpful. The sale is also very well organized and orderly, which can be difficult with underpinnings.

Third Markdown: Bergdorf Goodman 75% Off

You should head straight to Bergdorf Goodman if you're looking to shop truly amazing markdowns. Right now, designer clothing is discounted 75% off and most shoes and bags are reduced by 50%.

We decided to get ahead of the weekend rush and scope out what's treasures are still available. There aren't many handbags left over. We spotted a few Christian Louboutin castaways and a few Valentino styles that were still overpriced.

Moving on to the shoe department, there are still lots of great styles from which to choose. The discount is currently 50% off most shoes and boots. In stores, there are a scattering of Chanel and Louboutin shoes still left. The discount isn't as high on these brands. More reduced finds include Valentino T-Strap Rockstuds that are about $472 from $950, Isabel Marant thong pool slides are $212 from $425, and Paul Andrew sandals are $400 from $800.

Not surprisingly, the very best discounts can be found on the third floor. Designer clothing is now discounted up to 75%. A dramatic Thierry Mugler top is discounted to $577 from $1650, an Off-White cropped hoodie is $327 from $800. (Doesn't that still seem insane? It's a sweatshirt!) A denim skirt with a paisley print from Jonathan Simkhai is $93 from $375. An off-the-shoulder top from Joie is $62 from $250, an Erdem floral print dress is $1300 from $5200 and No. 21 silk dress is $700 from $1400.

This is the last markdown of the season. In mid-July, there will be an extra 20% off promotion but, at that point, it takes a lot of digging to find the treasures.

Neiman Marcus Third Markdown 70% Off

Neiman Marcus just reduced its Summer merchandise to the third markdown. Today, we happened to be in the Jersey Garden's Mall Neiman Marcus as employees started reducing prices. We were a bit excited (and over-spendy) as the price cuts were taken.

You can see pictures here of what we saw at the store. Inside we found lots of Chanel, still only reduced 30% off. If you're looking for higher discounts, we found several styles of Valentino shoes. These high heel white Rock Studs were reduced to $357 from nearly $900. Valentino pool slides are just $217 from $725. Hard to resist, right?

Among the bags, we found a few Balenciaga styles. This market bag is $875 from $1750 and this double B bag is $875 from $1800 too. Among the clothing is this iconic Balmain pencil skirt that's reduced to $1121 from $1495 and a No 21 lace top is $216 from $865.

The sale is already live online but hasn't been announced-- yet. We suggest you start browsing before the official marketing begins. This will be the final markdown of the season but there will be additional promotions in mid-July.  Bergdorf Goodman's third markdown started Wednesday and the discount is up to 75% off. Details to come...

Nordstrom Designer Sale 70% Off

If you haven't browsed Nordstrom's designer sale section, you should. Right now, you can find some really great classic and avant-garde European designer merchandise discounted 70% off.

Inside we found JW Anderson logo espadrille-like shoes for $232 from $775, a sweatshirt from Dilara Findikoglu's first standalone catwalk collection is reduced to $185 from $620, and Adam Lippes wide-leg pants are $386 from nearly $1300. There is also a whole lot of Calvin Klein Collection and Valentino shoes and clothing reduced to 70% off. There's always this Balmain sequin dress or Off-White sweatpants. There are just too many options!

Nordstrom usually doesn't add another markdown in July. Some more merchandise might be further reduced but you can't count on more than 70% off. The next big sale at Nordies is the 'Anniversary event' and that's essentially pre-fall collections.

Warehouse Sale Spotlight: La Perla 80%+ Off

There are sample sales, real sample sales and then there are the true warehouse clearance sales that offer the true bargains. Right now, shoppers can find a huge (HUGE) assortment of La Perla merchandise all discounted 80% or more. The sale boasts everything you love from La Perla at a price you can afford to really stock up.

This warehouse sale, featuring La Perla, is fully stocked with bodysuits, bikinis, sarongs, shoes, bras, panties and everything you can think of to fill your lingerie drawer plus a large selection of beach and pool items. The best part is that the prices! Bras are $40 each or you can choose three bras for $100 (normally $140 to $500), babydoll negligees are $40 each (normally $600 to $1300), beach sarongs and coverups are priced between $25 and $40 (normally $300 and $1300) bodysuits and shapewear are $40 (normally $300 to $900 retail).

You can head this way to see pictures from inside the sale. Shoppers can take advantage of two downstairs fitting rooms. You will not be disappointed. Take note, the atmosphere isn't very fancy but after shopping, you will still have enough money left over for a fancy romantic dinner. The savings on a negligee can afford you a nice dinner at Stone Barns. Seems like a reasonable (and enjoyable) trade-off to us.

Barneys Extra 25% Off Sale

The markdown at Barneys is holding steady at a price cut of 60% but shoppers can now take advantage of an additional 25% off promotion. We know it's not an official third markdown but it's almost as good. On some items, the total savings tops 70% off.

Some of the sale highlights include a Jimi Roos shirt dress with floral appliques that comes to about $100 from $365, an off-the-shoulder gingham blouse from GF Goldman is $170 from $550, a Faith Connexion chambray skirt is $225 from $745 and this Palm Angels tee is $110 from $365. Let's put it this way, there is enough stuff to put together a really steller Summer waredrobe from a very small expense.

Shoes and bags aren't included in the extra 25% off but we'll be keeping our eyes open. Barneys third markdown usually happens the last weekend of June and the discount is usually up to 75% off. Could you believe June ends this week? We will keep you posted!

Summer Weekend Wearhouse Sale

Summer shopping can be difficult, especially when the weather is nice and the beach is calling. One-stop-shopping is the way to go. Wearhouse, in Great Neck, is the premier destination for fantastic designer merchandise for amazing prices.

Starting Sunday, the boutique is hosting a huge sale where Naeem Khan, M. Missoni, Valentino and Red Valentino will be discounted from 50% to 70% off. The massive retail space is essentially a designer outlet with all the furnishings of a high-end boutique. There are helpful salespeople and even a tailor on premises. This is the place you go to find real couture pieces for elaborate events, a demure cocktail dresses, polished work attire and even some elevated casual wear.

We suggest you take inventory of your upcoming social calendar and plan appropriately. Who wouldn't rather have real Valentino than a designer imposter from Zara? Keep an eye out for a great selection of eye-popping Rockstud shoes and bags, which we find nearly irresistible. (Unfortunately, the closet does not always agree.)

You can click through to see some of the amazing pieces that can be found at Wearhouse. The best part is that phone orders and shipping are available. So, you might not even need to take your feet out of the pool to get the designer items you've been lusting after.

Weekend Shopping: The Best of Sale

It's the first official weekend of Summer and we are just beginning to understand where we left off last year. We are just starting to understand what we truly want versus what we actually need. Third markdowns are still another few weeks away. Now is the perfect time to buy what you need now.

Below are some items we are stalking. One must remember: Nobody can have everything! (Even if you try.)

Chanel Sale Update: Jewelry, Scarves & Bloomies

Chanel's first markdown becomes official on Thursday but lustful shoppers might be out of luck if they didn't take advantage of presale. We are told that availability is already running low at many of our local stores.

Don't worry, we contacted our informants and did some investigating. Over in this link, you can find lots of pictures of additional Chanel sale jewelry, shoes, scarves and even a bag. (There is a little inside secret about buying Chanel necklaces. If you're looking for a great price opt for a belt, they are usually much less expensive and often look great as a when worn around the neck.)

From what we can tell, we would suggest contacting a salesperson at Bloomingdales if you are still on a shoe hunt. You can also contact various out-of-town department store Chanel sales associates. We included some of our contacts below the post. Click back to our previous Chanel presale post and a prior post about how Chanel will proceed with sales at their boutiques.

Over this way, you will find the newest VLTN collection and other rarely discounted Valentino bags reduced by 40%. Here is a VLTN studded black tote discounted to $1995 from nearly $2900.

Chanel Presale Begins Now-- Barneys and Bergdof Pics Added

Details about the Chanel markdown are coming in slowly we are told that Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, and Saks will begin presale on Monday. The Chanel markdown should officially go public on Thursday. Chanel boutiques are not hosting any discounts this season but are instead holding unsold merchandise until next year.


Bloomingdales and Barneys are offering a discount of 40% and the markdown at Saks and Bergdorf Goodman is be 30%.  Below is a selection of Chanel shoes that will be on sale at Saks, Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman. It's safe to assume the sale selection will be about the same at every store.

The markdown, this season, only includes shoes, fashion jewelry, and scarves. For now, we only have information about what shoes will be included in the markdown.

The second price cut usually comes very quickly but it's hard to anticipate exactly when it will occur because of all the changes this season. We will continue to update this post and add pictures as more information becomes available from Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman.

Markdown Sale Cheat Sheet: Online Stores

The weather is finally starting to sync with the calendar date. The forecast for this weekend is beach perfect, which means time is better spent outside than inside stores.

BarneysSaks, and Bergdorf Goodman all took their second markdowns and are offering customers savings up to 60% off. Outside Manhattan, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom are offering similar discounts.

Those shopping online will find much wider pricing disparities. For this reason, we put together a handy cheat sheet that includes Net-A-Porter, Moda Operandi, and MatchesFashion.  Discounts span up to 70% off but you might notice that some of the most highly reduced items are over a year old.  MyTheresa will take another big price cut on Monday-- stay tuned.

For now, please feel free to reference our online discount guide and browse some the best sale items of the season. The discounts we quote below are where you will find the majority of the best sale merchandise, even if markdowns span higher.

It's Official: Net-A-Porter 2nd Markdown 70% Off

It's exactly a week later than last year, but the mystery is over. Net-A-Porter took its second markdown this morning. The sale includes further reductions with discounts up to 70% off.

Bags tend to go very quickly once the markdown tops 50%. This Off-White tote is reduced 60% off and comes to $510 from $1275. This peach Rocksanda tote is $720 from $1820 and this Valentino studded saddle bag reduced to $1187 from $2375. There are also a few Balenciaga styles available for 50% off.

The bulk of the shoe section is reduced to 60% off. We suggest you start browsing immediately. Sizes are disappearing as we scroll through the pages. Take note, that an item isn't held in even if it's placed in your cart.

We know it's crazy but we are in love with these Vetements x Valentino pumps from this past winter. They are still a bit pricey but love knows no value. An interesting heel is the fashion statement of the Summer. You can go with this JW Anderson rolled heel or this Marco de Vincenzo sandal that's reduced 60%. These Prada rubber slides are great for around the pool and come to just $262 from $655.

From the clothing, we spotted this lace top from SEA that's reduced 70% and comes to $88 from nearly $300. This Dodo Bar Or dress is $196 from $490, a ruffled dress from SEA is $194 from almost $500 and a frayed mini-denim skirt from Alexander Wang is $177 from almost $300. We also really love this red mini denim skirt from Alexa Chung and it's only $102 from $205.

We suspect that the discounts will get even better as the month progresses. Just try not to get too greedy. It's not worth waiting save 10% and missing the opportunity to buy something you've wanted.

Best of MatchesFashion 60% Off

Since we've been trolling the same department stores over and over, we thought we would look outside our most frequent haunts. MatchesFashion has discounts up to 60% off and a selection of items that we haven't seen everywhere (or anywhere) in Manhattan.

Some of the interesting items we found that are discounted 60% off are these Balenciaga 'Hotel Slides' that are reduced to $260 from $650. There are also Knife pumps discounted the same amount and still available in almost all sizes. This is the first time we noticed this clamp belt and it's reduced $275 from $550. Check out these Chloe flatform sandals, which are reduced to $260 from $650.

The site has some Prada merchandise that's also reduced by 60%.  Over this way, are low-heel mules with an oversized buckle for $356 from nearly $900. Some of the other interesting items we found are this gingham sleeveless top with cherry embroidery from Bliss & Mischief for $134 from $335, an Off-White camo parka is $884 from over $2200, a shirtdress from Blouse is $194 from $485 and satin slides from The Row are $312 from $780.

Be careful when shopping Matches, many items are not reduced as low as they are at other retailers. On the flip side, that means that the stuff you want isn't sold out. It's always a worth stalking.

Saks Fifth Avenue 2nd Markdown (Gucci Bags)

Sale season started about a week early this season. Most every other local department store has already taken a second cut on prices. Saks Fifth Avenue was the only neighborhood holdout, well, until today.

Right now, you can save up to 60% off at Saks. The best deals are in the handbag department, where purses are reduced an extra 25% off the first cut, which brings the total discount to 55% on most items. The sale selection is pretty similar as to what you would see most everywhere else. There is a tower of Valentino white Rockstud bags. (We have pictures of the Valentino bags that are for sale at the Saks Flagship here.) This pink metallic Valentino wasn't marked down at every store but can be snagged at Saks for $2677 from $2800.

There is also an assortment of Balenciaga suspects -- buyers seem to have been a bit over enthusiastic about the brand. Here is a link to the Balenciaga City Blackout ($2550 from $3000), which is always one of our favorite styles because it fits a 15" laptop and is very light.  Over this way, we were surprised to find a Gucci Supreme logo hobo style bag reduced to $939 from $1790. There are a few more online. You can check out the whole Gucci sale selection over here.

Upstairs in the shoe department, a lot of the best style shoes are selling out. We saw these Fendi pearl flats in a few sizes reduced to $472 from $900.  Here they are in a heel or a sock-boot. These Gucci espadrilles are under $280 from $630. These Jimmy Choo cork wedge sandals are a steal for $200 from $450 and Manolo Hangisi Berk-style sandals are $500 from $1100. You can see pictures from inside the Saks shoe sale over here but we think that the online selection and prices might even be better than what we found at the store.

The markdown on clothing is a little all-over-the-place. Most of the fanciest European designer clothing is an additional 25% off, which brings the total discount to about 50% off. More contemporary clothing is reduced by an additional 30% off, which brings that savings to about 60% off.  The most attractive items, however, were only reduced by 40%!!??

This floral print maxi silk dress from No.21 is divine but is only available in limited sizes, even in the store. It's reduced to $639 from nearly $1000. This MSGM ruffled dress mini-dress also caught our eye but it needs to be worn with a thick belt or else the exaggerated ruffles will make you look wide. It's just $210 from $525. We even happen to like it in the yellow.

You can click over this way to see pictures of everything (or most everything) we saw at the store today. Last year, the third markdown happened on June 28. We are not sure what to expect considering that Saks seems to be setting its own schedule this year and not minding its neighbors. We. Will. See...

ShopBop VIP Sale Link

The hugely popular Shopbop sale event kicked off today for VIPs. Shoppers can use the code SCORE18 and save an additional 25% off all sale items. The total discount can get as high as 85% depending on the item.

The sale officially kicks off tomorrow but we suggest you dig in right now because merchandise will go quickly once the public is let in. For now, you need to use this link to access the additional Shopbop savings.

This is a great time to grab a new few items for the upcoming Summer weekend. Browsing through the 70% off section, which is final sale, we found a pastel rainbow dress from Tome that comes to $358 from about $1200. (The dress is perfect for daytime with sandals or nighttime with heels.) We also love ruffled Jonathan Simkhai off-the-shoulder dress that comes to $280 from $975. Givenchy round sunglasses are nearly $200 from $500 and this Stella McCartney bathing suit is under $100.

Outside the most reduced items, we love these Aquazzura pool slides that are reduced to $250 from $500, a Caroline Constas maxi dress is $417 from $900 and rainbow hoop earrings are about $29 from $42.

The sale ends Friday at midnight (PT). This is the best deal you can expect, outside of Shopbop's friends and family sale. If you ask us, it seems like a good opportunity to celebrate Summer.

Christian Louboutin Sample Sale Is NOW

Markdown season has turned our attention away from most sample sales but the Christian Louboutin sample sale is too buzzy and legendary to ignore. Before you get too excited, you must remember that this sale is by invitation only.

This season, invitees were surprised by the low-brow Eventbrite sale notification but the security aspect hasn't budged and it's still hard to get in without an invite. The sale Christian Louboutin officially kicked off today to the most important Louboutin insiders-- Instagram stars and magazine editors. The sale extends all week as the invited guest list expands to allow the general press and "friends and family."

Our snoops say that prices start at $200 but most styles are in the $300-range. The most expensive style shoes are $1000. A majority of the heels and studded variety pumps are priced between $300 and $400. For example, Pigalle black studded heels were $400 from about $1100. This season, we are told that there are more options for men's sneakers and shoes than ever.

We are told that shoppers had piles of shoes that were nearly sky high. Usually, there is a shopping limit of five or six pairs but this season customers can buy up to 12 pairs of shoes. We aren't sure if Louboutin is feeling extra generous or if the Cardi B-effect didn't really have a, well, bottom line. Most shoppers checked out with four pairs of shoes. Men were reported to buy more than most women.

Shoppers reported that there wasn't much of a wait to get into the sale today but the line at the register was more than 45 minutes. To make matters worse, inside the sale was hotter than a sauna. If you intend on attending, we suggest you dress in light clothing and pack a credit card with a high spending limit.

Louboutin fans who don't have an invite can save 60% off at Barneys or 40% off at Louboutin boutiques, including Saks Fifth Avenue. It appears as if all authorized online retailers have removed Louboutin sale styles. Fear not, we found some other-- less obvious-- options to shop for red bottoms online. Use the above scroll to see what we found.

Before heading out, you can browse the Christian Louboutin in-store sale section in this post. Follow along on Instagram to get up-to-the-minute updates.

Christian Louboutin Invite Only Sample Sale
Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15

Neiman Marcus 2nd Markdown

As predicted, Neiman Marcus started their unofficial second markdown today. Customers can now save an extra 25% off, which will bring the total discount to 55% off. The sale won't be live to the public until Monday but you can access the additional Neiman Marcus discount using this link.

We suggest you use this early access opportunity to grab some of the items that most quickly sold out when Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys took their second discount. For example,  this Valentino pink Rockstud spike bag didn't last a day.  It's now $1572 from nearly $2800.  Over this way, is a gorgeous blue Bottega Veneta woven bag that's reduced to $1400 from $2550 and a Fendi ruffled bag is $1260 from $2800. There is still a large variety of bags from Balenciaga and Givenchy.

We suggest you grab something you like right now, while it's available. The good bags usually don't stick around to the third markdown. If you're a frequent in-store shopper you can get lucky and fight a late-season return but it's not an absolute.

Moving on to shoes, the discount, for some reason, doesn't seem as good. Shoppers can still find a big assortment of Valentino. These classic Rockstud spikes are $435 from nearly $900. Those Gucci sale style shoes are not going anywhere fast. There is still a full assortment of styles and even with the additional discount, some styles are still pricey. These Manolo slides are $380 from $679 and Fendi espadrilles with pearls are $500 from $750.

The clothing discounts are about the same as most other retailers. Some items seem reduced more than others. We suggest you do a search before completing any order or you can just wait for the third markdown when it's hard to find something not to buy.

Markdown Sale Cheat Sheet: Round 2

This week, retailers started taking a second cut on sale merchandise. Usually, stores take markdowns at about the same time, but right now, we are heading into the weekend with a wide range of discounts.

Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman are offering customers savings up to 60% off. Keep an eye on Neiman Marcus, which is scheduled to take its second markdown on Monday but it's more likely to break a little early on Sunday afternoon. The second break at Saks is expected at any moment too.

Moda Operandi is leading the pack of online retailers with its reduced prices. Discounts are up to 60% off on assorted items. Net-A-Porter seems to be running a little off schedule and has delayed its second markdowns. We believe the site won't wait past Wednesday to offer additional discounts. MyTheresa is a great alternative if you're looking to save up to 60% off right now.

We know everyone is waiting for more information about the Chanel markdown. We are hoping to have dates and stock sheets ready to post on Monday. Next week is sure to be even busier, We suggest you put anything you like in your shopping cart and let the sales come to you.

Barneys & Bergdorf Goodman Discounts Hit 60%

It seems as if sale season just started but retailers aren't wasting any time. Both Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman started their second round of markdowns today. The discounts at both stores top 60% off.

We started over at Bergdorf Goodman today. Markdowns started around noon and still hadn't made it through the entire store. Bags and shoes are now 50% off and clothing is reduced to 60%. If what you want is already sold out online at Bergdorfs you can keep an eye out for the Neiman Marcus markdown, which will happen on June 11. Actually, the Neiman Marcus markdown will technically be an extra 25% off sale, bringing the total savings to 55% off.

If you have your eye on any Balenciaga bags we wouldn't spare a moment. There is a variety of City bags in assorted colors, like blue, beige, white and black. Here is one online that's reduced to $1250 in the store. There are also lots of Bazar bags, here is a polka dot style that's $825 from $1650 and the NYC shopper is $975 from $1950. We love the laid-back look and unpretentious feel of Hayward bags and this style is $425 from $850. There are some JW Anderson Pierce bags for $850 and a whole lot of Valentino. You can click here to see pictures of the sale bag selection at Bergdorf Goodman.

Upstairs the shoe discounts were still in limbo but the racks are full of temptation. Pictures of the shoe selection inside the store are over here. Online you can grab these two-tone Neous shoes with a ball heel for $330 from $665, jeweled Miu Miu sandals are $495 from $990 and Saint Laurent block heel sandals are about $400 from $800. You can see pictures of what's left on sale at Bergdorf Goodman over this way.

Heading uptown to Barneys, you'll find that the shoe and bag departments aren't nearly as well stocked at Bergdorf Goodman. On the bright side, the discount is 60% off most shoes and bags. Among the bags, there are a few Balenciaga styles. If you have had your eye on an Alaia bag, now would be the time to pounce. Here is a bucket bag for $640 from $1600 and this drawstring cord bag is $1640 from $4100. The biggest selection is the Calvin Klein collection bags, which are undeniably pretty nice. Some of them happen to be a bit heavy but it's really an underrated accessories brand.

Between now and the end of the season there are flashes of additional discounts at Bergdorf Goodman. There will be a third markdown at both stores but that won't happen until July. Don't worry, it's not as far away as you think. The days always seem to fly by during Summer.

Dissecting the Nordstrom Discounts

Norstrom took its first markdown not too long ago and most of the store's designer collections are still well stocked. The discount is 40% off and new markdowns should be coming soon. The next price cut usually brings the total discount to 50% off.

What's even better is that Nordstrom is notorious for price matching. If you see an item priced less at another store make sure to contact customer service and Nordstrom will match the price in most situations. Some of the sale's highlights include some great classic luxury brands and edgy designers.

There are lots of sale handbags worth a second look. Among the key highlights is this Gucci Falena that's reduced 33% to $2350 from $3500, a Valentino Rockstud saddle bag is about $1400 from $3775 and a small Balenciaga city bag is $1300 from $2200.

We found a great selection of Fendi, including some of the hard-to-get logo pieces. Here are flip-flops that are reduced to $230 from $560 and a shoulder strap is $683 from $1140. There is also a great selection of Vetements and lots of classic sweatshirts. This Tommy Hilfiger collaboration hoodie is $730 from $1040 and a DHL tee is $462 from $660. This Comme des Garson blouse is major "fashun" and just $266 from $445. A double arm sweater from Isa Arfen is $297 from $495 and our favorite Hellessy asymmetrical top is $552 from $920.

Among the sale shoes, there is a Gucci selection that's about the same as what we've seen at other department stores. The discount is 40% off.  Off-White mules are reduced 30% to $900 from $1300, Balenciaga jeweled encrusted pumps are $835 from $1400, and denim Manolo Hangisi shoes are $580 from $1000.

There is a third discount but Nordstrom doesn't usually drop prices below 60%. If you're shopping in the stores-- that's another story.

Sample Sale Alert: Spikey Heels in a Red Box

Long Summer days provide the perfect opportunity for multiple outfit changes. That means kicking off your heels and, yup, putting on another pair of heels.

Good thing Global Fashions just received a very large shipment of those famous spikey shoes that come in that heavenly lux Red V_______o box. Sample sale shoppers can expect to find a full-size range, from 35 to 42,  of various colors and styles. All shoes are discounted 70% off retail.  You can click over this way to see pictures from the last big sample sale shipment.

Don't hesitate even for a moment if you have your heart set on drinking a tall glass of champagne on a rooftop in your new spikey heels. Sizes get snatched up quickly when new shipments arrive and we would hate the idea of dining alfresco barefoot.
