Had no problem walking right in a little after 8am today. Not too crowded and everything is very organized and clean. Prices are still a bit high...but I think I read that that's their norm.
Skirts are $79 and a nice selection of cocktail-y dresses (some still on the racks at Barney's) dresses are $159. Large selection in all sizes (up to 32) of their super tight and stretchy denim leggings,some with leather—those were $79. Leather a bit more. Tanks $49, not too many sweaters (I was surprised by that.) Biggest splurge was a great shearling lined black, belted coat. It's $799 but was originally $2800.According to her report, there's only one real drawback: Long, long waits outside the dressing rooms. Many women, including our tipster herself, gave up after 20 minutes.
