Few sample sales are more fun than the Diane von Furstenberg sale. That is, unless you show up at the wrong time. Today we hit twice and it was a tale of two cities.
Our first visit was early, during the press preview. The sale's atmosphere was relaxed and the crowd was limited. Merchandise was still coming in and our favorite $50 sample rack had not even arrived.
Later in the day we were greeted with a double line of shoppers waiting to get in. Once inside, dresses were flying, hangers were catching and women were crowding. It was not the ideal shopping situation. The line for the dressing room was over an hour. On the bright side, the sample sale rack was well stocked and ripe with great finds.
As one can imagine, over the course of several years we have created a huge personal inventory of DVF clothing. Recently, however, we have been attracted to the brand's bags and accessories. The bags specifically are designed to please even the biggest Celine/Hermes snob but have the added attraction of an affordable price. If you're looking to pick up a gift for a hard to please fashion girl this is absulity the place to go. Prices are below.
Wraps and Vintage $250
Cover Ups $100
Small bags $200
Beach totes $60
