Don't Miss Sample Sales from Pierre Balmain, Cinzia Rocca, Escada, and By Joy Gryson
The other day I witnessed a funny exchange. Two people, who apparently hadn’t seen each other in quite a while, bumped into each other at the grocery store and had a joyful reunion. As they parted ways, one half-shouted to the other, “Happy new year!” — a testament to the fact that time moves way too quickly for many of us.
Newsflash: We’re already a fourth of the way through the year! Can you believe we’re already diving into April? And can you believe that it’s officially spring?
New York City’s coming to life after one of its longest and most brutal winters in history. What better way to celebrate than with a little big of shopping? We thought you’d like the sound of that.
