Last Day of Fivestory's Bi-Annual Sale

Walking into the Fivestory bi-annual sale is a little like going to a rave in the South Bronx. The Bowery Hotel's basement location feels rather sketchy but there's certainly some appearances from top fashion brands.

Leonard $560 from $2570
Wednesday is the last day of the almost week-long sale and if you haven't taken a peek it may be worth your while. All of their merchandise is either 60% or 80% off, depending on the age of the collection. We just focused on the 80% off merchandise, considering that you can go to almost any store and save more than 60%.

There were many more racks at the start of the sale but today there were only two racks clothing for men, four for children and six with women's clothing. Granted, these racks were all packed but filled so tightly that it was hard to browse. After some tugging and pulling we found a Preen sweater print dress that comes to about $100 from $495, a Veronique Leroy sweater jacket is about $600 from $2180 and a Versace dress is approximately $540 from $2725.

There is still a rather diverse selection of Peter Pilotto dresses that debuted alongside his Target collection. They range in price from $400 to $600 from retail values of $2000 to above $3k. There are also several lovely print pieces from Leonard, which are priced similarly to the Pilotto items. (Both collections were clearly way overpriced to begin with.)

Among the 80% off shoe selection we found Chrissie Morris stingray sandals that come to under $200 from $915, Tania Spinelli booties are about $150 from $765 and Sergio Rossi peep-toe wedges are about $100 from $545. The sale also includes an assortment of jewelry and accessories for 80% off. An Aurelie Biderman bracelet is $130-ish from $660. There are also a few pieces from Dannijo and Alexandra Dodds.

We don't expect you will go home with a huge haul from the Bowery basement sale but you might be able to find a special something. You can click here to see more highlights from our shopping trip.
