The weeks after Christmas are always particularly good for deals. Everyone's trying to move fall merchandise to make room for spring deliveries that are already hitting stores. I trolled around Barneys yesterday to look at their markdowns on Dries and Marni, but I ended up walking away with this gorgeous python Lanvin bag. Handbags and shoes. The things I always spend the most money on.
Isn't it beautiful? I'm so excited to own this bag. My first Lanvin, a buttery white leather bag, was ruined during fashion week last year. While I was taking notes during the 3.1 Phillip Lim show, my blue ink pen leaked leaving sticky streaks and fingerprints of permanent ink all over it. I had to have it dyed navy. The python bag was marked down 40 percent, then marked another 33 percent off that. They have a ton of other Lanvin, Givenchy, and Louboutin bags marked down.
