A Racked correspondent checks in from the Dolce & Gabbana sample sale on now through Friday at Metropolitan Pavilion, where there is currently no line to get in at all. The report: "It's two floors of the Met Pavilion. The fourth floor is all women's clothing, lingerie and swimwear. The fifth floor is shoes, accessories (scarves, belts, bags, small leather goods) and men's clothing. It's the largest sale I've ever seen at Met Pavilion. Prices are still kind of high, but there's stuff from this last season (fall/winter 2008). If anyone's ever dreamt of owning a little Dolce & Gabbana and they have some cash to spend, this is the place to hit." [Racked Inbox]
