Cold weather accessories! I always see Portolano on Bluefly, so I suppose it is 'designer'. Whatever. Who can argue with highly discounted leather gloves lined in silk and cashmere? Or a new Nepalese pashmina to replace the one from the Jennifer Aniston Friends days. They will also have hat/glove/scarf sets, which will be really cute gifts, although for your more trendy friends, I'd still hit up the Marc Jacobs accessories store on Bleeker St. for those cheap cashmere gloves/hats that are appropriately branded.
Expect some random miscellany as well: handbags, leather goods, silk ties, hosiery, cashmere sweaters and god knows what else. No refunds or exchanges.
