If ever there was a sale to pounce at Third Street Habit, this is it. The Old City boutique, which houses contemporary RTW for Philly's fantastically nonchalant, is celebrating its shiny new website with a flash sale, the likes of which the shop has never seen before.
From Friday, June 6, through Sunday, June 8, boutique owner January Bartle is offering 25% off her entire inventory, including items already on sale. You can shop the sale in-store, or snag the discount on TSH's newly-revamped (and stocked!) e-commerce site with code NEWHABIT. (Insider's factoid: The store has added Ulla Johnson, Ancient Greek Sandals, and Claire V. to its designer roster, and pieces from Vanessa Bruno, Smythe, and Mara Hoffman are slated to arrive in July.)
As for what to scoop up first, Bartle recommends Love Sam's beaded blouse ($242), which is "going fast," and pretty much anything by French designer Isabel Marant, "always a favorite" at Bartle's North Third Street boutique.
