It's day bajillion for the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue, and finally they have broken down and discounted further. Oh, and they're also handing out free lipstick at the door.
Whether or not you've bought something, you can claim a free stick of DVF's "Foreign Affair" color, a deep deep autumnal red. As for the discounts, swimwear is still abundant and has come down to $40 from $50, and samples are faring better at $30 from $50. No discounts on the bulk of the stock yet, but we've got our fingers crossed that the vintage wrap dresses will hit $100 on or before Saturday (the last day).
Looking to the racks, the restocking is obvious as we totally didn't spy some of these dresses earlier in the week? notably more summer fare and the white sequined dress that Amy Poehler wore less than a month ago to the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
If you haven't yet had a chance to stop by the sale, there was no line today at 3pm when we stomped through, but we're sure that won't be the case during rush hour. On the other hand, if you haven't yet stopped by then we highly recommend holding out until Friday?when there should be more discounts, but nowhere near the craziness that Saturday will bring.
