A friend of Racked reports on current conditions at the DVF sample sale: "I went today around 1:15pm. Was in a cab at 1:40 with four wrap dresses in tow. That's 25 minutes total, including bag check, trying on, and check out. Just thought it was interesting that on day two the whole experience took less time than the line did yesterday. It was far more organized than in years past, and while the variety wasn't, like, epic, there was a lot of stock." [RackedWire]
