The San Antonio climate can be tough on fashionistas. Wearing tank tops and flip-flops to Thanksgiving dinner is downright disorienting. But every once in a while, the unpredictable weather can work in your favor. For example, when the winter weather arrives just in time to take advantage of the winter season sales. We’re getting a few freezes this month and fortunately sweaters, wool pants, and jackets are on clearance throughout the city. This is especially the best time of year to buy winter-weight accessories: shoes and handbags in dark colors and sturdy materials can still work well into March, and if you invest in classics, you’ll be thrilled to see them again next fall.

LeeLee Loves Shoes, on Broadway in Alamo Heights, is offering 40 percent off all winter shoes, boots, and handbags while supplies last. If you’re not the type to splurge, but you recognize a really good piece of leather, this is the sale for you. A very ladylike black pebble-patent handbag by Brooklyn hipster ne plus ultra designers Hayden Harnett is only $219 (down from $365) and you’ll carry it forever. If you don’t already have a closet full of knee-high boots, get to LeeLee for options in black or brown, flat or high-heeled, by designers including Ted Baker, Butter, and Belle by Sigerson Morrison.
