Inside the FiveStory Off-Site Sale

Claire Distenfeld, the owner of the multi-brand boutique Fivestory, is one of those rare retailers who specializes in satisfying shoppers who love 'fa-shun'. We always look forward to her bi-annual off-site sample sales because it's a great opportunity to buy something haute and unique at a serious discount.






This season's sale started yesterday and we couldn't wait to see what treasures we could discover. Clothing discounts range up to 80% off, shoes are 75% off and jewelry is discounted 60%. Clearly, the discounts are wonderful but the selection is horribly depleted. Most of the inventory consists of pants and skirts. There are some basic sweaters and a handful of gowns. The best shoe styles are limited to one size.

Despite the limited options, we were able to find some highlights. This Brandan Maxwell mini-dress with pleated sleeves is $580 from $2900, an Adeam asymmetrical cashmere sweater is $230 from $1150 and Nicholas Kirwood Leda pumps are $181 from $725. You can click over this way to see pictures from inside the sale. There is also a great selection of Eugenia Kim hats but they are only discounted 60%.

The sale runs through Saturday but we wouldn't suggest making a special trip to Soho for the sale. There won't be restocking but there might be additional markdowns.
