Following the Markdowns Final Sales

January 25, 2011 by Lila Delilah

At the start of the season we decided to take a look at the most talked about items and watch to see how low the markdowns would go. Click here to see the markdown history for our reader’s most wanted items.

Some of the items we spotted in September are gone from the racks but below are an assortment of great finds that can still be purchased if you have the fortitude to track them down.

Chanel Boots

When we found these boots we knew they would be a consumer looser, which means they are a bank account winner. The price tag started at $1850 and today we spotted these darlings at Bloomies at double markdown. The final price is about $685, which isn’t too far off our $500 target. Now we just have to worry about keeping our toes warm. (Boomies also has a good selection of Chanel clogs that now come out to about $500.)

Givenchy Nightingale

Okay, the Nightingale never had a significant markdown. That doesn’t mean that you can’t snag a great deal on a Givenchy bag. Right now, Barneys has reduced the Givenchy Melancholia from $1,315 to $529 and the large Antigona Duffle is marked down to $799 from $2,330. Our favorite is the Neo Carry All, which is about $840 from $1567 on

Badgley Mischka Dress

This Badgley Mischka dress was a bridesmaid’s dream at $880. It was quickly reduced to $528 but luck shoppers were able to grab this purchase for under $310.

Oscar de la Renta Bib Necklace

This stunner started out at $490 and was reduced 30% after Christmas. The item is currently sold out online but if you can spot one in the store it could be yours for just $196.

Alexander Wang Darcy

The Darcy was love at first sight but a moment on the shoulder and we realized that the weight from the gurmmets would just be too much. This season’s “it” bag started off at $850 but could be currently found at Saks for just under $340, if you’re lucky.
