Given all the major sales this week, it sounds like you might want to skip the underwhelming Derek Lam. Says Sample Sally: "There were a number of stand-out pieces (dresses and jackets) but the ones that caught my eye were just too pricey, in my opinion, for a sample sale. I wasn’t prepared to pay $500+ for a dress." She thinks they might slash prices today, though, so if you're already in Soho for Alexander Wang and/or Proenza, it can't hurt to stop by.
