A tipster writes in about her own experience at the Tucker sale, and her story is full of thrilling twists and turns: "I went around 12:30 yesterday and everything was definitely on the pricey end of things. Most dresses I saw were at least $140 (there was one cami dress for $85) and all shirts were around $125+ (except for a long sleeve wool shirt, cheap but itchy!). The crowd was actually pretty competitive. 'Are you taking the purple??' 'What size is that blue printed dress you're trying on?' etc. BUT I did find a ROMPER for $125 that was discarded on the floor. They apparently had two. I wore it to an event last night and unfortunately discovered too late that it majorly smelled like BO, like 'a model was sweating in it all day for a shoot' smell, not 'someone just tried it on' smell. I don't go to many sample sales but this was kinda overthetop! and not that cheap. But I love my romper." [Racked Inbox; Previously]
