Sales, Continued

I heart January. It's typically a slow month for retailers, but there are real deals to be found, as they're practically giving winter wares away for free in a mad scramble to make room for spring shipments. True, you'll probably be sifting through a lot of stuff nobody wanted, but sometimes there's just overstock, or there's just one left of something and it happens to be in your size. I'm still enjoying the spoils from last January's treasure hunt at Saks.

If you don't make it to the stores, here are some noteworthy online sales to help you empty out any loose change that's still floating around in your wallet.

Oak's 30-40-50 Sale has just begun. The sale starts this weekend at 30% off, and every Monday, they take another 10% off of any remaining merchandise. This is an especially good one for the menfolk. Check out discounted B.Son, Hyden Yoo, and Nicole Farhi sweaters, Corpus coats, Filippa K shirts and skinny ties, button-downs from Henrik Vibskov and Shades of Greige, Nudie jeans, and Maxx & Unicorn wallets. Oak will be opening up a Manhattan Location soon at 28 Bond St (bet. Lafayette and Bowery), and the Park Slope store will re-open as a shoe store.

60% off sale at Jake. Be sure to check out the ladies shoes. Though some of them reek of leftovers, I spied some chic styles from the likes of Barbara Bui, Loeffler Randall, Carmen Ho, and Pedro Garcia. They also have some swoon-worthy pre-spring merchandise in, which will be featured in an upcoming post.

If you can navigate through their website, Queen Bee has some great finds for up to 70% off. Again, pickings are slim, but there's a great Milly or T-Bags dress in there somewhere, as well as some nice DvF coats.

Don't forget that the above also applies to home furnishings, as they too are seasonal. Last year, my roomie and I furnished our entire apartment within a day or two for shockingly little (and none of it came from IKEA). West Elm is currently having its Dash for Design sale. Shop for sectionals, textured metal coffee tables, or a modular nesting table I've had my eye on.
