Sale-navigating buddy

Shopping is fun enough on its own, but it's even better when you have a buddy. Nicole Miller's Bellevue and Manayunk stores are holding their semiannual sale, this time with a twist. Not only will you get 50 percent to 75 percent off their regular prices, but you'll also get a personal shopper to help you find what suits you best. They're calling it a "sale with service."

Check out the Hazy Gold Flowers Lurex Gown, which was initially priced at $750 before the sale knocked it down to $375. The floral pattern on this flowy maxi is feminine without approaching cutesy.

With the personal shopper, you don't have to wonder what works and what doesn't. You have someone there who has your back (and can check your backside).

Make sure you book your appointment in advance (email Sabrina Pray at or Samantha Sciolla at to secure your spot.
