The week in shopping
Sale of the week: Unless you're Carmen Electra, shopping for swimsuits positively blows. Thankfully, Malia Mills eases the pain somewhat with her mix-and-match swim separates that fit up to a size 16 and a 38DD (or down to a 30AA) chest. Of course, a Maila Mills swimsuit usually runs you about $200, but at this super-duper sale, the pieces are $5-$75 each (normally $85-$205)--that's 50%-85% off. Through 8/13; 10-7, 10-5 Fri.; 263 W. 38th St., 10th fl.

Going somewhere? Flight 001 has travel accessories from Orla Kiely, Jack Spade, and others for 20%-60% off. 8/12-9/12; 11-8:30, noon-6 Sun.; 96 Greenwich Ave. (12th & Jane Sts.).

Find Outlet, one of my faves, is having a warehouse sale, where you can find Miu Miu, Missoni, Roberto Cavalli, and other fancy-schmancy designers for ridiculously cheap (like up to 85% off). 8/12-8/15; noon-7; 361 W. 17th St. (8th & 9th Aves.).

Drinks and snacks and door prizes will be on hand, and a percentage of the night's sales will be donated to local no-kill animal shelters. 8/12; 6-8; 345 E. 12th St.

For the slim-hipped among us, jeans are on sale at American Eagle; get free shipping when you spend $75.

While I tend not to buy anything at Agnes B, I love her clothes. So considering sale merchandise is now 60% off through 8/15, maybe now is a good time to start.

The cool weather this past weekend made me want to shop for fall (and, uh, I did--more on that tomorrow), and the smart people at Lord & Taylor must've sensed it, because their Think Fall sale starts this week. Click here for bonus coupons. The sale runs 8/11-8/17, but in the meantime, check out this killer (yes, literally and figuratively) fur poncho. It will be mine. Oh, yes. It will be mine.

This week at the Shop at, Ashley Dearborn shoes, Bebe clothes (for those too lazy to go to the actual Bebe website), exclusive Jonathan Adler bags, and indie goodies from 30Vandam.
