Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We already stopped by for a menswear report at the Barneys Warehouse Sale. Now it's time to take a second look at the shoes and womenswear to see what further markdowns are in store. Much to our relief, despite the extra 50% off blue stamp shoes and a now extra 50% off WHSE-stamped designer wear, the sale was quite quiet and pleasant this morning.

We dropped by shoes first to see what we could find with the extra half-off blue stamp of happiness. To our delight, we immediately came across a trio of similarly hued Pierre Hardy heels: Wide-strap, two-toned blue stacked heel sandals now for $204 (originally $1020), blue and black slingback shooties for $197 (originally $1045), and blue suede and ribbon strappies with gold piping for $194 (originally $965).

More in the blue stamp category: Lanvin 2009 bronze and black oxford platforms for $207 (originally $1040), metallic green sandals for $127 (originally $945) and pointy toed metallic stilettos for $177; Balenciaga suede black platform spiked heel booties for $217 and rose platform gladiator sling back shooties for $260 (originally $1295); lace peep toe and ribbon tie Manolos in black and blue for $183; (originally $367) and Jean-Michel Cazabat patent round-toe stacked heels for $100 (from $495). In the unstamped category, we admired items like a Louboutin espadrille wedge with chain detail ($249 from $625), Jean-Michel Cazabat python mid-calf gladiator heels ($239 from $585), Stella McCartney silver satin and cork heels ($379 from $495) and Lanvin 2010 denim peep-toe sling back clogs ($379 from $950) and red quilted platform Mary Janes ($789 from $1320).

We then made our way to the Designer womenswear section offering an extra 50% off the WHSE stamped goods and the same 25% off red star stamped items. Here's a glimpse of what you'll find: Stella McCartney's electric blue short sleeve silk dress ($159 from $795) and grey shirt dress with silver embroidered diamond patterns ($411 from $1435) and Lanvin's black brocade strapless cocktail frock for $475 and a rough-edge nude and black mini-dress still for $1191.

Still in the land of the mostly unattainable, we drooled over Balenciaga's grey two-toned leather moto pants with the pleated waist for $1281 and a Rodarte nude woven mesh, tulle and slashed leather back tank for $584 (after the 50% discount). Also spotted: The Row's black leather pencil skirt for $582 (from $3885), a Proenza Schouler fuschia sequined mini cheerleader skirt for $202 (not as bad, from $1350), a Zac Posen blood-orange–hued strapless gown with a beaded waist for $463 and Zero + Maria Cornejo leather cropped moto pants for $487.

We felt more flush in the denim section, where everything is now marked to an extra 50% off. Examples include J Brand straight leg medium wash jeans for $40 (from $216), Prps studded back pocket straight legs for $85 (from a crazy $488), and Acne black bell bottoms for $45. In the more relaxed environment, we also came upon the bags. Most weren't noteworthy, but we dug out a couple Leonello Borghi croc totes still for $1959 (from $3915) even though they were tossed into the bin like used gym bags at a garage sale.

In case you're also wondering, the home items are marked an additional 25% off. The little chairs are dunzo, but we felt a tug at the heart strings when we saw a shelf of pink plush bunnies for just $4.50 each (after the additional discount). That's the update, ladies. So per usual, it's your choice—wait for more markdowns or go now for more choice.
