Yesterday, we started our Union Square shopping adventure at Filene’s Basement where we found a wonderful assortment of Jil Sander clothing at bold discounts. Naturally, our next stop was DSW.
At first we were underwhelmed by the selection and prices of the discount store’s newest shipment. Jimmy Choo low boots for $900, Giuseppi booties for $500 and high boots for $600? Really, we can do better on Madison. A little bit of patience paid off because if you make your way to the back of the clearance section, you will find a diverse amount of Gucci, Sergio Rossi and Bottega Veneta shoes for an additional 30% off. After the additional discount, most shoe styles are about $160 and boots are $210. Not too bad right?
The best of the Guccis are the round toe wedges that come in a variety of colors. They are still $250 online but are just $160 in the store. Tired of the ubiquitous Hunter rain boot? Go the high heeled white Rossi or the indigo flat. They are both $210 and sure to make a statement.
Considering the markdown, the atmosphere was very calm. Maybe we should keep this markdown our little secret!
