Like the lifespan of a butterfly or the sleekness of a blowout in this humidity, the magic of today's excellent Proenza Schouler sale was fleeting. Guerilla Shopper's Nancy Brenner just emailed to let us know that the place has been utterly ravaged. Her report: "Friends & Family cleaned up yesterday according to sales staff. Shoes gone. Anything iconic gone. Those cool tie-dye shirts gone. Some small black bags at $330. If you haven't been there already, skip this sample sale as many others dragged downtown in the sweltering heat and turned on their heels once they saw the selections and price tags of the plain Jane leftovers."
