The Barney's New York Warehouse Sale has come to LA, and they've brought all of their most stylish friends with them-Christian Louboutin, Lanvin, Manolo Blahnik, Givenchy, and Prada, to name a few-at prices sure to make any fashion lover weep.
Covering 60,000 square feet of the Los Angeles Convention Center, The Barney's New York Warehouse Sale offers both stylish male and female Angelenos killer designer deals as far as the eye can see. Everything is at least 50% off of original retail prices, with additional markdowns happening each day of the event.
The endless racks of women's designer duds are packed with treasures, like a lavender Narciso Rodriguez shift originally priced at $1,650, but that you, savvy shopper, can bring home for $340.
And then there are the shoes. Oh, the shoes. Seven six-foot tall racks are filled with the best and brightest in the shoe world, at prices sure to turn any plain Jane into a Manolo Blahnik shod Carrie Bradshaw-they're all a minimum of 60% off retail. Answer the siren call of Christian Louboutin's red-soled heels for around $300, or snag a pair of Prada pumps for $350.
Male shoppers will find themselves in designer suit heaven, with tables and tables of shirts and ties to match.
But, why should you have all the fun? Give your pad a little love, and pick up a bright and beautiful Armand Diradourian throw pillow for $38, marked down from $150. Or perk up your coffee table with one of the many thick, shiny coffee table books for just $25.
Since relocating this year to the Los Angeles Convention Center, from the Santa Monica Barker Hanger, the event has been able to fill in all of the extra shopping space with 30% more inventory, and offer shoppers fitting rooms-no more public nudity required. Parking is also a breeze, with the event adjacent underground Los Angeles Convention Center garage ($12). Or, die-hard bargain shoppers can sniff out cheaper parking in surrounding lots for $5 - $8.
This weekend marks the last few days of the event, which began on February 4th and ends Monday, February 15th at 7pm. Designer discount lovers familiar with the sale know that these last few days are the best time to come-prices get lower and lower as time runs out. So, throw on your most comfortable pair of ballet flats, and make your way to The Barney's New York Warehouse Sale. Your wardrobe and wallet will thank you.
