The best time for bargains is almost always an end-of-season sale. Take January and February, when winter stuff is usually marked waaaaaaaaaaaaay down even though you still have plenty of time in the season to wear it. I just bought this Theory coat for 20 dollars at Housing Works! And with the Siberian winter we’re having, I actually haven’t had many opportunities to wear it. So I’m saving this for March. Sure the wine color is rather wintery, but it stands out nicely amidst the mostly black and grey apparel I see on the Manhattan streets.
