We're just back from having our mind blown at a special peek at the Barneys New York warehouse sale. (No, don't hate -- we just got to look with our eyes, not with the wallet.) Let us wipe the drool from our chin and calm the shaking fingers: there is a lot of good shit. Starting with the biggest collection of sale bags we've seen in many a sale. Most of these bags are slightly/minimally damaged, which merits and additional 25% discount. Which means someone (hopefully, us!!!) is going to take home a Balenciaga bag in black perforated leather for about $239. We counted at least five Alexander Wang bucket bags -- ranging in price from $239 (less 25%, you know how we feel about math) to $349. At least four Proenza Schouler bags, including black leather (but still pricey). Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Prada?got your attention yet?

There were also some amazing finds in shoes. Plenty of Rodarte (both Nicholas Kirkwood and the Opening Ceremony collab). And all the usual suspects: Rag & Bone, Prada, Loeffler Randall, Barneys Co-Op, and plenty of Loubs. There is a huge stock of "as is"/slightly damaged shoes -- some of them had been worn once then returns, others were missing little doo-dads, and many more we just couldn't tell what the hell was wrong. And at 25% off the sale price, there's a lot we can overlook.

Click through the gallery for full deets. And we'll have another post dedicated to clothing later this afternoon. Don't forget, the sale starts tomorrow at 9am.
