Fourth of July #2, Independence, Missouri, Mike Sinclair
NOLITA—Perhaps you prefer to budget most of your disposable income for clothes, but please don't leave your apartment neglected: Every home needs some art. Today only, in the spirit of the holiday weekend, you can buy an especially patriotic portrait at a discount. Prints of Mike Sinclair's stunning Fourth of July #2, Independence, Missouri—currently on exhibition in Claremont, CA—are $20 off today ($30 for the print, $155 framed). Find it at
Jen Bekman's Nolita gallery, 20x200, or at 20x200.com. [Racked Inbox]
WEST VILLAGE—We love summer sales. Everybody loves summer sales. What's even better than a great summer sale, though, is a great summer sale with cool window displays—especially when they're holiday-themed. That's why we're headed down to the West Village for the Lulu Guinness summer sale at 394 Bleecker Street for 30% to 50% off select merchandise, and, of course, to check out their patriotic window display, featuring some of the most expensively cool lips we have seen in a while. (Yes, the Stars & Stripes Snakeskin Lips Clutch is in the window.) The sale is also online, but sans window display, of course, and where's the fun in that? [Racked Inbox]
NEW YORK CITY—Speaking of both summer sales and fireworks, Dolce Vita is having a Summer Celebration Sale online through July 4th. That's 25% off Dolce Vita. 'Nuff said. [Racked Inbox]—Lauren Budorick
