End of August Sales
by Kimberly Rae Miller
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.
