Opening Ceremony's post-holiday sale is in full swing, and we stopped by this afternoon to check it out. The bullet points? Precious few people were there, so it's likely that you'll have the place all to yourself. And while most items are still well into the triple-digits, there's a handful of clothes and accessories under the elusive $200 mark.

Though staff says the sale is sprinkled throughout the entire store, the best of it is located in the basement level alongside the shoes. (We were only able to snap a couple photos before we were promptly informed that photography was strictly prohibited inside the store.)

The sale is generally organized by designer: To your immediate left, you'll find an entire rack of Moschino couture discounted well over half-off, though in most cases there was only one of each item—we spotted the lace bralette blouse ($420), the cow-print coat ($1,358), a red sleeveless dress ($340), and McDonald's-print pumps ($238).

Elsewhere in the room, there were ample T by Alexander Wang tops and skirts in the $200 range, a fuzzy, sea-foam green Rachel Comey coat for $598, Avalon high-waisted skinnies for $144, a Miguel Fifth Avenue sweater for $172, a teal Risto miniskirt for $174, a Layla Racy plaid top for $126, and Jacquemus skirts for $228. Other brands that were well-represented: Christopher Kane, Sen Wye, Acne Studios, and Proenza Schouler. Umbrellas are around $48, while sunglasses are $150.

Towards the back, you'll find Opening Ceremony collab items, including Mickey Mouse button downs for $50, Magritte sweatshirts ($125), dresses ($155), and umbrella-printed skirts ($119) and tops ($109). There's also plenty of spring-y (and cheap!) Thierry Boutemy for OC items, like $80 flower-printed hoodies and a $155 organza jacket.

Shoes are mostly from Opening Ceremony's house line, and include cold weather-friendly pairs like checkered platform slip-ons ($96), heeled Chelsea boots ($166-$186), and chunky-heeled oxfords ($130). Notable elsewhere were a pair of gorgeous Robert Clegerie oxfords for $260, and Low Classic oxfords with furry platforms for $267.

The bottom line: Prices seem to be the same in the store and online (we noticed no discrepancies), so to get a better idea of what you can expect to pay, check the sale page.
