Sugar Rock Catwalk has a report on the Vivienne Tam sale, which is running till 6pm tomorrow night in the Garment District. Verdict: It's a bonanza for smaller-sized ladies looking for feminine dresses and tops. Simpler past-season dresses are $120, while current-season frocks are $395 (down from $595). Tops generally run under $100 unless they're from spring 2011, in which case they're more like $180. Shoes are $60, and shoppers can pre-order a t-shirt supporting the Japanese Red Cross for $25. There are no dressing rooms, so do layer accordingly. [Sugar Rock Catwalk; Dealfeed]
