Before Tory Burch hits Metropolitan Pavilion next week, Bottega Veneta makes its annual appearance with a two-day sample sale that starts on Thursday, July 23rd. The brand is mum on what we'll find this week, but past experience tells us that even when a bag is marked down to 90% off retail price here, it can still be well over $3,000—because it's made of crocodile skin, after all.
And even if you can afford prices like these—the majority of styles will likely range from $500 to $1,500—you'll likely be limited to purchasing just a single bag, since they tend to run out before the sale's end anyway. In the realm of affordability, last year we found dresses for $300 (excluding runway replicas of a piece worn by Emma Watson), blazers for $250, and a pretty big selection of footwear (in terms of range of style, but not depth of sizes) for $100 to $250.
