Your lifestyle, your quirk
What could possibly be better than shopping at the famous Barneys warehouse sale? The answer is shopping at the famous Barneys warehouse sale from the comfort of your own home.
Bargain hunters, fashionistas, and loyal fans of Barneys, hold onto your mouse, because for the first time in its history, the legendary Barneys warehouse sale is going online. Rather than standing in line and fighting off your fellow fashionistas for bargains, you will be able to shop in the comfort of your own home. Most folks usually dress for easy access to do a striptease when they hit the sale, and now people won’t have to get dressed at all!
For those of you who are not familiar with this legendary event, each year the tony retailer Barneys has a warehouse sale where, according to refinery29.com and several other very excited web sources, “You can get up to 75% off of designer clothing, shoes, and accessories.”
I am actually surprised at myself, since I have never witnessed one of these events first hand. I have only heard breathless recounts from coworkers at several jobs. It’s been tempting, and I would not mind watching from a safe distance. It all just sounds too exhausting to actually participate and even a bit dangerous. If you want to a rundown, check out what nymag.com had to say.
I love a bargain like the next person, but after reading phrases like “lined up and down the street” and “frenzied, crazy look in their eyes,” I am cool with my decision to pass going to one of these sales.
Although I never made the event a tradition of mine it still seems a little sad that this sale is now going to be online. I am all for keeping up with the times and I do my share of late night shopping in my jammies, but it just seems like an old tradition is being done away with. But I will confess my curiosity may get the better of me and I may check it out online.
According to most of the sites that covered this blessed event like refinery29.com and nymag.com you sign up for the site now, and you'll get access to a day of preview shopping before the sale officially starts. Just go to www.barneyswarehouse.com.
For those of you brave souls who want to shop old school, as the saying goes, “the show will go on” Barneys will hold the physical sale from August 23-September 3 at their 17th street location.
