Who doesn't want to be in on a secret? Right now, all sample-sale-aholics want to know where Rodarte will hold its June 26th sale. This one-day event requires you to RSVP; in return you will receive a (most likely last-minute) confirmation with the location. The whole process may seem a bit burdensome, but the short line and organized stock of previous years may make it worth the extra effort.
While shoes may be rare and pricey—pairs were over $1000 at past sales—clothing and accessories will be more affordable, with past prices ranging from $50 for sunglasses, to $200 for handbags, and $100-$500 for clothing, including casual tops, cocktail dresses, and jackets. The options are usually arranged neatly and with care and have little damage—unlike other sample sale madhouses.
Are you dying to go now? RSVP to email@example.com and cross your fingers for an email back with the location.—Madeline Berg
