Sample Civilly

Soiffer Haskin is the home to the civilized sample sale. I mean, they have dressing rooms which completely eliminates shamelessly stripping amongst strangers (say that 5 times in a row). Oh, well, you can still get a good deal. And I’m sure if you try hard enough (grab, snatch, push), someone will wrestle you for that sweater you just yanked out of their hands. Otherwise, it’s just too easy. Upcoming sales:

Bonpoint, stylish kid's clothing (newborn to preteen), the summer and winter collection. So you'll stop crying when they spitup on their $100 overalls.
Tuesday, Oct. 23 - Friday, Oct. 26. Tu - Th, 9a - 6:30pm, Friday 9a - 5pm.
No strollers, looks like kids have to be allowed to this one, and credit only. All sales are final.

Hickey Freeman, Bobby Jones, men's clothing, furnishings (manly accessories), & sportswear. Pick up a shirt for yourself while you're fixing up your man. Love a man's shirt. Sunday, Oct. 28 - Thursday, Nov. 1. Sunday 9a - 6pm, M - Wed, 9a - 6:30pm, Thu. 9a - 5pm.
No strollers, and no kids under 12yr. allowed. All sales are final.

It's just barely not in our district, but it's close and a good excuse to visit 34th Street. And I bet they don’t have dressing rooms. Break out that body stocking!
Chaiken, luxury coats, pants and sweaters. Indulge yourself.
Tuesday, Oct. 23 - Friday, Oct. 26. Tu. 10a - 7pm, Wed. 10a - 6pm, Th. 10a - 7pm, Fri. 10a - 6pm. 261 W. 36th St, between 7th & 8th Ave, 2nd floor.



I'm writing this all in purple as
Macy's Herald Square is rolling out the purple carpet for Mariah and her new fragrance, "M" by Mariah Carey. It's purple, it smells purple, and she's going to be appearing (in purple, I'm sure) at Macy's today from 5 - 7pm. The VIP tickets are sold out, but you can buy a $130 gift set and get a ticket for an autograph from the diva herself. I hope you like a "light, sensual" fragrance made with Moroccan incense, Living Tahitia Tiare, and toasted marshmallows. Mmmm, isn't it lunch time?
