If you're planning to hit DSW this week, take a tip from Madison Avenue Spy and go straight to the clearance racks. Gucci, Sergio Rossi and Bottega Veneta shoes are all 30% off, making them around $300 less than the store's newest designer shipment. And, for $210, you can get that white heeled rainboot, which will be perfect for taking your frenzied, wind-whipped look up a notch in case New York gets another hailstorm any time soon.
