Spend That Paycheck On These Badass Baubles And Designer Duds

With all the, er, moist weather we've been having lately, the fact that it's supposed to be in the high 70s and sunny tomorrow sounds almost like it's too good to be true. May showers bring June flowers? Either way, you'll understandably want to get out and start enjoying the good weather, and we want to make sure you're outfitted for the occasion, with two killer sales that'll get your closet well-stocked for summer.
First up, make some time this weekend to check out the K/LLER Jewelry Trunk Show at the Cynthia Vincent Boutique. Up for grabs are a selection of new pieces and hand-cast baubles made out of porcupine quills, like this amazing statement necklace that would look totally sharp (heh) with a sleeveless button-up, or even with a simple T-shirt and a big, floppy hat. Prices are a little steep between $100 and $300, but that's what tax returns are for, right?

When: Now through Sunday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: Cynthia Vincent Boutique, 253 Elizabeth Street (between Houston and Prince streets); 646-707-3830.

After you've refreshed your jewelry box, hit up the Tibi Sample Sale next week for up to 70% off the flirty, floaty staples you need to keep your cool when the temps really begin to skyrocket. With shift-dresses in summer-ready hues, weightless tanks, cute skirts, printed pants, and more to chose from, you'll be sartorially set for the rest of the season. Plus, the sale is taking place from Tuesday through Thursday next week, so you can always keep going back for more...if we don't buy up the whole store first, that is.

When: Tuesday, May 15, from noon to 7 p.m.; Wednesday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Thursday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where: Tibi Sample Sale at Happy Monkey Studio, 348 West 36th Street, Ground Floor (between 8th and 9th avenues); 212-290-5306.
