barneys sale

As you already know, I've hit up the Barneys sale. Last week, they were more markdowns up to 60% off. Many things were added to the sale while others reached their second markdown. I suggest you run to Barneys and take advantage of what's left to be had.

You're gambling if you decide to order online. Supposedly, the inventory is taken from stores so they are not completely accurate. Once, I made the mistake of ordering something like six pairs of jeans but only one came in the mail. $12 to ship six pairs was okay but not to ship one.

Use the website to pre-shop. Find what you like and make a list of it. Then, call or visit your local Barneys to see if they have those items. The website might say there is one size left but your Barneys might have more. I wouldn't have found my new Chloes if I hadn't done this.

Keep your receipt. If the price goes down further, they will price adjust. I don't know the allowed period but if you have a really nice sales associate, they will bend over backwards for you.

If I could spend more, I would get the things below. They are ridiculously marked down. Why pay full price if you don't have to?
