The saddest thing ever? My very dear friend’s wedding shower is this weekend.
No, no, no, I’m not a bad maid of honor — but I will be out of town, and, therefore, absent at the sale the city waits for all year (seriously). The sale when two of our fave Old City boutiques — Third Street Habit and Sugarcube — band together for the awesomest, fabulousest warehouse sale ever, appropriately named SugarHabit.
Only this Saturday, August 9th, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at 213 New Street (a new location this year), apparel, accessories and shoes from these two lovely shops — styles from A.P.C., Isabel Marant, Dolce Vita, Twelfth Street, Sass & Bide, Splendid, and so, so very much more — will be marked down between 50 and 90 percent. There will be bins of scarves and tees and other wondrous things between $10 and $20. If you pay cash, you get another 5-percent off — and, whatever you buy, you’ll receive a promo card from both boutiques offering you 20-percent off one fall item at each shop.
Sigh. Sarah, you are lucky I love you.
