We stopped by DSW this morning to peek in on today's 50% off Luxury Event, and it was just what we expected: Gucci-filled. There's not as much merchandise as the store's crazy Gucci smash-and-grab last year, but with three to four racks for most shoe sizes, you'll get a pair of their designer shoes on the cheap, if that's what you came for.
The other three designers featured in the sale —Sergio Rossi, Bottega Veneta and Marc by Marc Jacobs—didn't appear to be as plentiful from our peering, but they're definitely there, and hopefully not in a one-pair-in-size-5 kind of way. Also, if there are accessories for half off, there aren't very many—we spotted what looked to be a Gucci cashmere wrap for $399, but as the only item that didn't have 50% off sprawled across its tag, we doubt it's discounted further.
What the store will be like later today is unsure, but if you're looking for Gucci, don't waste your time waiting for the Barney's Warehouse Sale in this heat. Or, don't even move—DSW.com has all four brands on super sale, right now.
