If you're craving a new outfit but don't want to break the bank, the end of summer is basically your month-long moment of zen. Why? Because most of our favorite local shops offer mega discounts in order to move end-of-season merchandise, which means you can scoop gorg pieces for a song. So, mark your calendar for this Saturday's annual Old Town Alexandria Sidewalk Sale, where irresistible deals include 50-80% off at The Shoe Hive, Diva Designer Consignment, and Periwinkle, just to name a few.
