Nightmare Fitting Room Lines Snake Around the DVF Sale

What's changed inside the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale since yesterday's exhaustive report? The fitting room lines, for one thing. After braving the queue outside, shoppers should expect to spend another half hour or so waiting for entry into the communal dressing room. Racked reporter Fawnia Soo Hoo reports that the line extends around the back of the sale. Also: "It just took me five minutes to make it through the size two aisle. Some lady shoved me. It's insane in here."

Other changes: The scarves, which were $40 yesterday, have now been reduced to $30. Almost all of the wallets are gone, and the purple python studded bag ($400) disappeared before our very eyes.

The dress selection, however, hasn't been too badly dented yet. We spotted the ladylike cherry print Paradis dress (it's also available in shirt form), the Taran, the Justin, the chevron pattern wrap, the Kasi sundress in black and plum, the navy draped star dress, and a ton of long silk maxi dresses, all priced at $125. For evening, the gold Chika sequin cocktail minidress is cute and plentiful, as is the silver-beaded black Nadia tunic (both $275). And the shaggy Alusa jackets and skirts ($125 and $80 respectively) are still dotting the racks.

At the moment, the place is packed, with shoppers carrying around an average of five items. Staffers tell us that the sale will restock through tomorrow, then lower prices on Thursday. Stop by earlier for a better selection, or later for better deals.
