They're pros and cons of working a stone's throw from Broome Street. The soon-to-be opened Alexander Wang store, Isabel Marant's boutique, Temperely London second floor shop...hell, the only cons seem to be how empty our wallets get after a walk 'round the block. Well, insert sad face here—our lunch break just got a little bit less extended after hearing the depressings news—Alice Temperley is shutting down her SoHo store this Friday. The silver lining? The it-Brit designer is having a massive blow-out sale, with everything marked down 60%-75% off, including the current spring '11 collection. Shave some pounds (get it?) off your X-mas list: The pretty, parlor-like space, that also doubles as a showroom, has got dresses, jumpsuits, bags, and even bridal on tap for less. If your budget it not wedding-worthy, stocking stuffers include belts, keychains, and the cutest little candles! So, while we're shedding a tear or three over this Anglo-exit, don't call us Scrooge if we're also a little amped, albeit temporarily. We know Alice will be back in the New Year.
Temperley London Closing Sale, Until December 17, 453 Broome Street, 2nd Floor, 212-219-2929. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
