Which Victor Osborne Hat is For You?

Victor Osborne

Victor Osborne's Pandalino bowler: dashing.

TOPPER: One of the fun things about shopping at a bona fide millinery – other than getting to use the word “millinery” – is that hats, like few other apparel items, can truly inspire an entire look, if not a whole wardrobe revolution. Pop into the just-opened boutique where Victor Osborne plies his trade (yep, you can even watch him work) to meet the hat (perhaps the Pandalino straw bowler, $249, pictured?) that’ll change your life. 160 Orchard Street between Rivington and Stanton Streets; 212-677-6254.

STOCK UP: If you’re the last woman in NYC without gladiator sandals, score them from MIA at Shoegasm’s sale (they’re $49, down from $70) – and prowl the rest of the designer discounts up to 70% off. Find stores here.

HOMEWARD: Yes, you have to go to the Bronx – but isn’t saving more than $2000 on an exquisite Persian rug worth it? The ABC Carpet & Home Warehouse Sale is finally upon us, with discounts of up to 75% retail on every conceivable gorgeous thing your nest requires. The sale runs through 8/23 (but it’ll be seriously picked over by then); more details (and a coupon that’ll let you shave an extra 15% off the sale price) here.

LIKE BEES TO…: We hear about new arrivals at boutiques all the time; one of the few stores we actually get off the couch to go check out is the excellently curated apparel-and-more stop Honey in the Rough, where you can find goods from Alexandre Herchcovitch, Iggy & Lou Lou, Tsumori Chisato and lots (lots) more. Fall arrivals land Friday; we know where we’ll be on Saturday. 161 Rivington Street, between Suffolk and Clinton Streets; 212-228-6415.

CRAFTY: Discover your new favorite handmade goodies, freom tees to jewelry (and all more than affordable, starting in the $5 range), at Sunday’s Summer Lovin’ Market in Astoria (11AM-7PM) – it’s just like a real-life Etsy! More information here. www.astoriaevents.blogspot.com
