The week in shopping
Hey, skinny girls! Slim-cutter Rebecca Taylor and lovely lingerie-maker Leigh Bantivoglio are having a girly joint sample sale at 336 W. 37th (between 8th and 9th Avenues), 15th floor. Sale is Tuesday and Wednesday, 10-8. Rebecca Taylor tops are $60-$80; skirts and dresses are $90-$100; pants are $90; jackets are $100; shoes are $70. Leigh's dresses are $100; camisoles are $60; boy shorts are $35.

Zero Maria Cornejo is a much-overlooked, very cool downtown label, and her store, at 225 Mott, is having sale. Items are up to 80% off: $40 tops, $99 pants. Hours are Monday-Friday 12:30-7:30; Saturday-Sunday 12:30-6:30.

Portolano, an Italian knitwear company, makes excellent wool and cashmere winter accessories. They're having a sample sale at 15 W. 37th Street (between 5th and 6th), 2nd floor, today through Friday, from 10-6. Last year I got a nice cashmere hat and cute little mittens.

Sometimes Steve Madden has really cute shoes. I have no idea what the sample sale will be like, but it's worth a look: Shoes are $25 (5 for $100); boots are $40 (3 for $100). The sale is at two locations: 247 W. 37th (between 7th and 8th) and 134 5th (between 18th and 19th). Hours are 8-7 weekdays, 10-5 weekends, now through Saturday. The Steve Madden website is also having a 50% off sale.
