Any New Yorker who has braved the infamous Barneys New York Warehouse Sale knows what a rollercoaster of emotions it can be: the horror of trying garments on in front of strangers, the agony of getting to those Alaïa boots in your size just seconds after someone else snatched them up, the thrill of scoring that Proenza Schouler you've been lusting after for just a fraction of the price. And for those not in New York, there was only sadness and jealousy that you'd missed out on the insanity.
Which is why we're thrilled to tell you we got the best email ever this morning: Barneys New York is bringing their Warehouse sale online! All you have to do is hop over to this website to register, and if you sign up for Barneys email updates, you'll have exclusive access to the online sale a day before everyone else. Now people across the country will be able to share bragging rights about nabbing a designer piece at nearly 75% off the original price--and you don't even have to wait in line.
For those New Yorkers who need the adrenaline rush of the actual sale, don't fret. It's still happening at the 17th Street Barneys New York location, August 23-September 3. For the rest of us agoraphobes, we'll happily log on and shop from the comfort of home, where no one can judge us by our pajamas.
