The Ballet Flat Ballet Flat

… plus designer wedding gowns for cheap + a sample sale at Betsey Johnson

CECI N’EST PAS UNE SHOE: Who says a canvas kicker can’t be deconstructionist? These cream ballet flats from local label Slow and Steady Wins the Race are printed with exactly that descriptive -- ballet flat – in stark black. $105 from TenOverSix and at Blueberi, 143A Front Street, DUMBO, Brooklyn; 718-422-7724.

WHITE WASH: Brides, start your engines: the Housing Works Bride on a Buck Wedding Dress Sale kicks off at 10AM today. The labels are choice (Jenny Yoo, Monique Lhuillier, etc.), the discounts are deep (a Lhuillier gown is slashed to $1500 from $6200) and the savings? You can spend those on what really matters on your big day: Champagne. Housing Works Gramercy Thrift Shop, 157 East 23rd Street; 773-454-2865.

THINK PINK: You look like you could use something red. Better: hot pink. Or printed with big, ballsy roses, maybe. All this and more can be yours for pennies at the Betsey Johnson sample sale, starting today at the Millennium Hotel. Prices top out at $75 for cocktail dresses; everything else – tops, sundresses – is less. Millennium Broadway Hotel, 145 West 44th Street, 6th Floor; 212-789-7546.
