Following the Markdowns Update

December 10, 2010 by Lila Delilah
Earlier this season, we took stock of our readers’ most wanted items. As sale season heats up, we thought it would be a good idea to check in on the objects of our obsession and their markdown status.
1. Chloe Elsie Large Satchel $1395

Follow Up: The Elsie has not made it on sale in department stores or the boutique. A great alternative is the Abby, which is 40% off at Chloe boutiques. The sale price for the large Abby is about $1115 from $1875.
2. Givenchy Nightingale $1900-$2300
Follow Up: As expected, this puppy is going to be difficult to find on sale. Not may stores carry Givenchy bags, which makes the task even tougher. Bluefly has a host of Givenchy bags, which are about 30% off and the Melancholia is on sale at Barneys for $839 from $1405.

Follow Up: This coat was reduced to 50% off at Missoni boutiques, in mid-November, but is currently all sold out.
4. Cesare Paciotti heels $500-$600

Follow up: Almost anyone will admit that Louboutins are a bit overplayed. We thought it would be fun to expand our shoe horizons. Most shoes are now 30% off at the Cesare Paciotti boutique and a limited styles and bags are 50% off.
Follow Up: We guessed that you would be able to snag this little number for at least 30% off but it’s now 40% off or $474.

Follow Up: When we first posted about this dress it was already reduced to $528. There have been no further reductions.
Follow up: We first predicted that this necklace should go to 50% off but it’s still just 30% off or $342. We still think it will get reduced further. If you’re looking for a better deal now, browse through the selection on Oscar’s website. This exact piece is exclusive to Saks but there is still a great selection and it’s all 40% off.

Follow up: This it bag is now $499 at Barneys but the Alexander Wang sample sale is next week. We bet a few early insiders can snag this style bag for under $400.
Follow Up: As previously reported, Alexander Wang’s online store marked these beauties down 40%. Unfortunately, they are now all sold out. At Barneys they are now $539 but finding them may be difficult, unless you are a size 11. The bright side is that they do run very small.
Follow Up: The bad news is that this exact style did not make it markdown. However, the more sporty version, with a shearling lining is now 50% off or $490 from $980.
