CHELSEA—The American Apparel warehouse sale has been extended yet again. It was originally supposed to end in December, and then, it was supposed to end in March. Now, we've been told it'll be staying open until the end of June. Since bathing suit season is right around the corner (who are we kidding—to American Apparel, it's always bathing suit season) this gives you plenty of time to stock up on teeny-weeny lamé bikinis.
