Above the Fray details the goings on at some of the city's biggest sample sales. Had a fantastic (or less-than-fantastic) experience at a sale? Do let us know.
Dolce & Gabbana's sexy, form-fitting threads are usually prohibitively expensive, and even their diffusion line D&G is in the hundreds, but thrifty shoppers can grab clothes from the high-end label for almost reasonable prices at the Dolce & Gabbana sample sale, on now. A Racked correspondent, who hit the sale this morning when it began, checked in to let us know that it was, in her words, "fucking awesome." The report:
I was almost freaked out by the sheer volume and great selection of merchandise. There were shelves of shoes ($150 to $300), belts ($74 to $150) and dresses and sweaters (priced around $225). They also had an underwear and bra section and a kids' section. All the shoes seem to be size 39. The space where the sale is being held is big and very organized. The one drawback: there was a long wait for the dressing room, and once I got there, it sucked. It was really small, there was only one mirror, no racks to hang anything on and it was packed with people. The dressing room was like a war zone.If you're in desperate need of a bustier dress, the sale runs through this Sunday.
