FIFTH AVENUE—Don't blow your entire shopping budget this week. Diane von Furstenberg just announced the dates of their biannual sample sale at 260 Fifth. As always, discounts run up to 75% off, with the chance to pick up both new and vintage wrap dresses as long as you can withstand the ferocious crowd. The sale begins next Tuesday, December 13 at 9am and runs through the following Saturday. [Garment District Diva]
NEW YORK CITY—Barneys just began its long warm-up towards those awesome post-Christmas sales where we always end up buying all of our sweaters. Right now, the discount is just 40% off, which means you have two options depending on budget: 1) If you're feeling spendy, grab the stuff you love now before it disappears. 2) If you're a little more frugal, pick out what you like on the site and start stalking it.
