When I think Barneys I think a fantasy land filled with delectable designer duds and shoes that cost more than my net worth. But in the month of August, Barneys got just a wee bit more affordable what with its semiannual sale and a denim trade-in special.

Barneys Warehouse Sale
It’s that time of year again, the ultimate sale you saved up for, or at least wish you saved up for: the Barneys Warehouse Sale at the Santa Monica Airport Barker Hangar. Dig through mountains of designer clothes for men, women and kids, all marked down 30-80% off. The longer you wait, the bigger the discounts but the slimmer the pickings.

  • August 9-19. Santa Monica Airport Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica. (310) 276-4400.

Denim Donation
Don’t know what to do with all those jeans that you loved to death but are now taking up space in your closet and drawers? Bag ’em up and haul them down to the CO-OP at the Grove or the flagship store in Beverly Hills and get 20% off your next pair of jeans from Seven for All Mankind, Helmut Lang, James Jeans, A.P.C., Citizens of Humanity, J Brand, Ksubi, etc. Don’t be embarrassed or afraid to sully the counter with your used goods. Barneys wants your well-worn jeans so they can donate them to your local Big Brothers Big Sisters. Awww and yay!

  • Through August 19. CO-OP at The Grove, Los Angeles, (323) 761-5255 and Barneys New York, 9570 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills.
