Wondering about the Candela sample sale in Soho? We stopped by to check it out this afternoon, and here's what we found: major discounts on this season's ready-to-wear and footwear from Gabi Perezutti. Basically, the entire breadth of the spring collection is on sale.
We were so excited to find that the Michael brown leather skirt is $70 (from $395). The bright yellow Jessie dress that was $230, is now $50, along with all other short dresses. Longer dresses, including the Victorian dress in white or navy, are $60 (from $297).
Tees, like the adorable hand-beaded Elephant shirt, are priced at $40. We also spotted the Laila sweater tank with a macrame back for $40 (from) $195. Shorts are marked down to $30, which is where we found the Baker denim cut-offs. As far as outerwear goes, the Elephant beaded anorak is now only $50 (from $325.) If you can even fathom the idea of purchasing a coat right now, we suggest you grab that one.
And now, onto the shoes: Sandals are $50 (from $260), which includes the Lolli wedge. There are also rope wedges and flats, the latter of which included ballet styles for $50. We thought the Metallic Daido shoes that come in silver, blue, red, and copper were a good deal (down from $220). Also, the white Perfo loafers that were $230 are now also $50. Boots are $70 and you'll find a few tall styles to choose from. There are also two $20 bins overflowing with mules and various sandals if you can find your size. We did spot the Fishskin flat in there, originally priced $215.
