As month’s end approaches, price tags start getting slashed.  If you’re looking to stock your closet before September try this on for size:

Fashion is Compassion Trunk Sale–Tonight Only!:   Shop for a good cause and dress to impress at this trunk sale–.  Imani Alexander and iStylist.com are hosting this elite shopping event.  Prices on these high-end designers are better than they would be in a boutique, but not exactly “cheap” as the proceeds are going to the National Kidney Society.  This is totally a see-and-be-seen shopping event, worth getting dolled up for the people watching.  Nikki Lounge: 151 E 50th St., NYC. 212-753-1144. Thursday, August 26th 6-9pm.

On to the more practical sales, Shoe Market NYC is having its summer clearance sale with up to 70% off footwear. Sale lasts through 8/31. Shoe Market NYC: 160 North 6th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 718-388-8495. Store Hours: Daily 11am–8pm.

Amarcord Vintage Fashion has some amazing designers filling their shelves, and because the clothes were gently used (and/or stuffed in someone’s closet and never worn) they’re actually affordable for us regular folk.  Gucci, Hermes, Chanel…and now they’re even more on sale at this pre-Labor Day Sale.  Sale lasts through 8/31.  Amarcord Vintage Fashion: 233 Bedford Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 718-963-4001. Store Hours: Noon-8pm.
