Bergdorf Goodman and the non-Manhattan Neiman Marcus will be the latest department stores to take their winter merchandise to the third markdown. The discount at Neiman Marcus will be up to 70% off and Bergdorf’s discounts will hit 75% off.
The markdowns will officially go live Friday morning. As usual, I suggest you begin your browsing before the sale battalions take over. I’ve already started sticking items in my cart like these Balenciaga slides that are perfect for vacation. I just don’t know if I should get them for myself or for one of my daughters. These Gianvitto Rossi short boots are classic and NY City walking approved and this Aquazzura embellished d’Orsay is whispering, “Wear me for New Years!” Do you hear it?
I would have thought that all the bags would be sold out by now but I did find a few that I’m considering. I love the understated lines of this Equestrian bag from The Row. I am also considering adding a few brown alternatives to my accessory collection. If you’ve been eyeing a Balenciaga bag, Neiman Marcus still has a few options that are already discounted considerably. What do we think of this Tom Ford Tara bag?
This next markdown will bring our primary focus to clothing. There are still many great options and a 75% off reduction is going to make it hard to choose. Here is a Cinq a Sept ruffled dress that’s perfect for New Years and it’s currently just $155. It comes in red too. This Balmain sequined dress might be a more attention-grabbing option for the countdown to 2019.
A New Year means a new you. I refuse to spend a lot of money on gym clothing. I think it’s because I rarely wear them outside the gym and never subscribed to the athleisure wardrobe movement. That being said, I love leggings that make me look great. I’m a big fan of Koral Activewear and Monroe and love finding big discounts. I’m keeping an eye on this shiny grey sports bra and these basic shiny leggings.
I must admit that the selection and sizing are better at Neiman Marcus but it pays to browse both sites. The companies have become very good at avoiding overlap and the assortments are quite different.
These are the final markdowns at both stores but later this month there will be additional discount promotions. You just never know what merchandise will last that long.
