Now would be a good time to stock up on waterproof footwear. Happily, a Melissa sample sale began this morning in Chelsea. A commenter reports on the selection and pricing: "Don't remember seeing any [Zaha Hadid shoes], sorry. Did see Vivienne Westwood, Alexandre Herchcovitch and the 'character' shoes including Little Prince and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit styles. Just got back. Nice showroom. I bought three pairs of shoes for $100 total. Prices range from $25-55. Good selection of styles but some are running out of sizes. They said they had more sizes in the back but not sure how long that will last. Very friendly staff. They even offered bottled water to customers. Highly recommended." [Racked Comments]
