Over at the Ports 1961 sale on the blustery far west side, prices are "insanely cheap," according to a Madison Avenue Spy tipster. But she's talking about the sample rack, where all the size 2 bounty is going for between $15 and $70—and, from what our commenters have said, going fast. If you're not a size 2, it's a lot less enticing. Reports a commenter:
Lots of racks full of clothing (organized by size: 2 to 12) with dramatic discounts, but I'd still consider it a bit pricey ($100 dresses, $60 skirts). Lots of bizarre styles: Drapey dresses, oddly cut blazers and swim cover-up type skirts.And a few others have chimed in with variants on "don't waste your time." Unless you really enjoy wind tunnels, this might be one to skip.
