Jen Firlik sends this photo evidence of prices falling. She writes:

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago at the Barneys Warehouse sale in San Francisco. I literally stopped in my tracks and said "wow," in part because I'd never seen a $28,000 dress in person...and in part because it was yellow and orange paint-splattered (Dolce & Gabbana). This was a steal for someone at the deeply discounted price of... $2499.

Bonus: Jen Firlik's cool photo blog.
