Today, Heather and I scoured downtown for awesome finds. We went to the Barney's Warehouse Sale and  I left with a Theysken's Theory printed tunic (pictures later!) for $19. Already discounted items were given an additional 60% off, but I couldn't find anything of reasonable price even then, although I did see some beautiful iridescent Lanvin, comfy T by Alexander Wangs, and awesome architectural wedges by Ann D. As an added surprise and delight for my first Barney's warehouse sale, I met SUI HE! She's even more stunning in real life... and just a humble model off duty picking up some items on sale :)

After Barney's, we drifted over to Angel Street Thrift Shop, where I met up with the amazing photographer/model KELSEA KOSKO. I also happened upon a beautiful Charlotte Ronson sleeveless dress (that can double as a vest-dress contraption) WITH TAGS for a mere $5! 

However, our deal-searching excursion was HOT, HOT, HOT! With temperatures nearing 90 (if not already 90), it was sweltering. Nonetheless, smart me thought it would be cool to wear two faux leather pieces and one real leather piece on my feet. I recently picked up this amazing leather skirt with pockets at BE for $14 and the gold chain link necklace from a 'flea' store for $2; both great buys in my opinion! 
Accessory-wise, I decided to layer this rhinestone necklace from Claire's to balance with my boot's zippers, while the gold chain matched by ultra versatile Gucci aviators.

You could say today was awesome.

I'm so jealous you went to the Barney's Warehouse Sale. I live in NYC, but I left for college the day it began... urgh :(

Regardless of if you were sweltering, you look damn cute. Sometimes you've gotta suffer to look beautiful ;)
