Even so, it's not every day (if ever) that we can go on a buying binge at this pricey district of dreamy retail — a girl's got to pay the bills, after all.

The Oak Street Council is holding its annual Let It Snow sale now through the end of January, which means participating stores (sorry, the new Christian Louboutin store is out) are offering goods at a deep discount of up to 75% off (hello, lunch break pit stop!). We're talking about up to 60% off designer clothing, shoes, and accessories for men, women, and children at Barneys New York and The Denim Lounge, up to 40% off select merch at Scoop NYC, and many more ways to spend your money.
