News You Can Use (if you need some sweet new jeans)


For fashionistas on a budget, boutiques like Legacy Village’s Lush and the Warehouse District’s Clothing Brigade are a nightmare: Tons of well-fitting designer labels that you can’t afford, unless you give up eating for a month. But four times a year, the two clothing stores have (very short) sample sales, where these same upscale items – including stuff from Nanette Lepore, Juicy Couture, Diane Von Furstenberg, and lots of other really-expensive-sounding designers -- are 50 to 90 percent off. This is not one of those garage-sale type things either; the pieces they reduce are totally cute and totally wearable. And there are lots of them. (We just scored a pair of Joe’s Jeans, originally priced at $168, for $69.) The combined sale – Lush lugged their stuff downtown – runs until 9 tonight at Brigade (1300 West 9th Street). – Rebecca Meiser
