Really low prices, lots of selection: Now this, friends, is what we like to see at a sale. Charlotte Ronson, on today through Friday in a showroom off Bryant Park, does not disappoint. Racks were hung with summery dresses, tops, rompers and shorts all priced from $15 to $70 (tags boasted stickers that indicated cost). A table full of the designer's coveted 70's-inspired wedge heels in brown, tan and green leather sat by the front door; most of the shoes were priced in the $15 to $30 range, with a few falling above and below. There's bad news, though: The fitting room is practically nonexistent. Shoppers were made to change in a tiny kitchen off the hallway furnished with a cheap, funhouse-style mirror that stretches you out, with no place to hang their items. Best to bring an honest friend to this one.
