There was no line to get into day two of the Christian Siriano sample sale when we arrived this morning at 10:30. The sale is being held at 519 Eighth Avenue,, which is the same venue as the Adrienne Landau sample sale. For those looking for fur coats and cocktail dresses, this could be a one-stop shop.
There are four racks total of pieces by Christian Siriano—not a whole lot—and the clothing is discounted up to 70% off. On the first two racks are blouses, blazers, coats, casual dresses, and pants that are now buy one, get one half off. Every piece is marked with its price, and nothing has been further reduced since yesterday. Expect to pay $60 for a blouse, and $300 to $400 for a casual dress.
The two other racks are made up of cocktail dresses and gowns that are more ornate and embellished. The prices for these dresses really vary from piece to piece. There was a strapless fuchsia cocktail dress on sale for $750, a black lacey dress for $400, and an incredible tulle gown known as the Watercolor Gown for $4,000.
Beware: some of the dresses have labels that say Fall 2013 and Resort 2014, but we're told that these labels are incorrect, and the merchandise is mostly from fall and spring 2012. If you're wondering why the clothing was mislabeled, so are we.
Sizes range from 2 to 14, and there will be no restocking. The sale ends on Wednesday; check the dealfeed below for details, and the gallery for photos.—Claudia Saide
