I’ve written twice about EmphaticNYC.com. I just think the prices are so right and the merchandise is high-quality. And for a second time, the online retailer is opening the doors to its showroom for a spring sample sale. So for those of us who can’t get into the Christian Louboutin sample sale, you can find some solace in the inventory at EmphaticNYC (like Azzedine Alaïa shoes for $239 in excellent condition). And you can get an additional 15% off items ordered online during the sale. Plus, there are some great finds under $50. EmphaticNYC, 262 West 38th Street, Suite 201, Manhattan, (212) 239-6762; through May 21, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
I’m a journalist who likes to live well, but will never pay full price. In this new world of the Groupon et al., how can we get a bargain on the things we actually use? That is where I come in. I’m a single girl on a budget with a penchant for fashion, good food, and travel who likes to take care of herself in the process. So, I decided to blog about the everyday ways I save money while still living pretty well. Hopefully it can help you live life fully without paying full price!
