We know that nothing comes close to the values found at the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale but we can still appreciate a good promotion when we spot it. Right now, DVF is offering 30% almost all full price items. The discount runs through Tuesday, October 8 and can be accessed online using the code FRIENDS30.
We have to preface our picks by saying this isn't our favorite DVF collection. The prints seem drab, there don't seem to be many interesting shapes and the items we do love happen to be priced too high. Take the tricolor Quilted Leather Moto Jacket. It feels like a Celine Trapeze bag but for $1600 (after the discount) there are better options. The same goes with the awesome Liberty leather leggings ($1000).
That doesn't mean, however, we can't find pieces that are worth the splurge. For example, his Flirty Lip Leather clutch ($365) reminds us of Salvador Dali and almost never goes on sale. The Sidra Wing Cutout Dress ($375) appears to be sultry and not sleazy, which is sometimes hard to do with bodycon dresses. We can also see getting a lot of use out of this Leopard Print Tee ($245), which will pair well with jeans or black cigarette pants for a night out.
Keep in mind that most department stores only give a 25% discount during friends and family. So, this is a better option if you have your eye on DVF.
