Happy Birthday America. What better excuse to be patriotic than by dropping the Benjamens on a gift for yourself in honor of our great country's birthday.
Particularly when the great Italian fashion house Gucci is having a sale. Yes, that's right...you read it here. The top o' the line luxury line is parting with its beautiful bags, shoes and accessories.

If you live in the Los Angeles area, you have a chance to score some vintage Chanel. The LA-based vintage boutique What Goes Around Comes Around (located at 159 La Brea Ave., Los Angeles) is having its annual Chanel event. Not necessarily a major price break, but some beautiful bags, shoes, jewelery are pretty just to look at and muse about Chanel days gone by.
Barneys New York http://www.barneys.com/Sale/sale,default,sc.html and Saks Fifth Avenue http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/search/SearchSale.jsp?bmUID=jpoFcPO&tre=salenav2 are having sales right now. However, I checked on the Saks Sale shoe selection and its pretty righteous with B Brian Atwood, Jimmy Choo, Manola Blahniks, Miu Miu among many others offered at a fraction of full price.
Lastly, Zara, the International fashion company, is having a huge sale in stores and on-line.
