One thing I love about living in NYC is having access to tons of J.Crews, Gaps, Zaras, etc. This is particularly useful when it is sale season. Today, I stopped by the Midtown East J.Crew to do a huge return and saw that there is an additional 30% off sale items in stores. This location hasn’t impressed me for a while; I was not impressed with the selection. Talking to the cashier, he mentioned that the newly renovated lower Fifth Avenue location, which I visited in early June, surprisingly only has a rush around 6pm and doesn’t have as much foot traffic as one would think. So, I scurried over after a few errands and sure enough, I easily found what I was looking for in my size. And then some.
I took a breather in the kids department, Crewcuts, and admired all the small details.
If you need a baby sailor stripe baggu, look no further than J.Crew!
Then, I saw a stylish European woman in line with Crewcuts necklaces (girls’ jewelry is currently 25% off) so I had to investigate. I ended up picking up a blue bead necklace with pink ribbon and a braided/beaded concoction. Both are not online. They were around $10 after discount. The nice thing about the tie closure is that you could use them as belts! I also found the coveted leopard print calf hair belt, on sale!!!
In other J.Crew news, I am a fan of the perfect shirt in amory floral. I call it my “getting in touch with the English countryside” shirt, and it matches perfectly with my current wallet and notebook.
For the Longchamp fans, the Soho boutique is having a huge sale. There are tons of apparel marked to 70% off (still $200+ after discount) as well as leather items that are discounted 50%. Their Le Pliage colors from last season are around 20% off. Meh. If you were at the 2007 Sample Sale, you would understand why I walked out emptyhanded.
I also stopped by the Tucker and Clare Vivier sale yesterday afternoon. The CV was mostly cleaned out. Not that I needed another one! None of the Tucker prints interested me.
Thursday and Friday were too productive.
