The week in shopping
I am so upset that I'll be out of town for the entire duration of Opening Ceremony's three-day sale, but for the lucky ladies in town, clothing from British designers Hussein Chalayan, Cloak, and Topshop (!) is a whopping 75%-90% off. Cash only. 1/12-1/14; 11-8, noon-7 Sun.; 35 Howard St. (at Broadway), 5th fl.

Wink NYC's already affordable (well, in NYC terms) accessories and shoes (think Andrea Brueckner, Fornarnia and Felix Rey) are even more so: They're now up to 75% off. Through 2/28; 155 Spring St. (at Wooster) and 188 Columbus Ave. (at 69th St.).

Dress like a Lower East Side lass in Johnson's fall line, now on sale for 20% off. Through 2/25; 1-7 Tues.-Fri., 12:30-8 Sat.; noon-6 Sun.; closed Mon.; 179 Orchard St. (Houston & Stanton Sts.).

Make like a stylish Sloper and hit Diana Kane, where Lewis Cho, Orla Kiely, and Armand Diradourian are up to 50% off. 1/10-1/31; 11-8, 11-7 Sun.; 78-A 7th Ave. (at Union St.), Park Slope, Brooklyn.

I was not the biggest fan of the Bridal Garden (which is, however, a charitable organization), but if dirt and tears don't faze you, find gowns by Vera Wang, Ulla Maija, and other normally pricey designers for 50%-75% off. 11/1-2/5; call 212-252-0661 to make an appointment; 54 W. 21st St. (5th & 6th Aves.).

If you're a classic-white-shirt-lover, hit Anne Fontaine Paris for her signature basic at 30%-50% off. 1/13-1/21; 10-7 weekdays, 11-6 Sat., noon-5 Sun.; 610 5th Avenue (at 49th St.).

Clothingline is back with Milly, Ben Sherman & Evisu (still), Inhabit cashmere, and other Cheryl Shops favorites. Through 1/11; 10-6; 261 W. 36th St. (7th & 8th Aves.), 2nd fl.

Finally, it's time for one of my favorite sales, the semiannual "Me Spree" at Enter code mespree2007 at checkout to receive 20% off everything you order (including sale merchandise). Through 1/19.
