As you most likely know by now, the super-secretive Rodarte sample sale is currently happening at the Ace Hotel. However, secrets have a hard time remaining so wherever there's an internet connection, so we now know that the sale is in room 611. Our reporter gave word that your best bet is the Rodarte for Opening Ceremony merchandise, which is considerably less insanely-expensive than regular Rodarte. But if pricey is what you prefer, you can pick up this collection dress for $3,000.
For the Rodarte x OC items, long dresses like this one are going for $250, coats are $175, and shirts are $80. She adds that this hat is the only accessory left and well, lets just say it's pretty clear why. And as we mentioned earlier, all shoes are size 7.
As far as the vibe goes, one commenter referred to it as a "shit show," and another asks the very valid question: why does this sale bother having an RSVP?
I also got a bad vibe from staff this time around. They are usually very friendly and adorable but this time just felt weird. And they should just make this sale without RSVP already. Everyone always gets in without their names on the list, they even post the sale info on their facebook page... so much drama for so little.· Lineblogging [Racked NY]
