How will this sale will differ from the one 260 Sample Sale hosted just last month? This invite specifically calls out that gowns and formal wear will be available for up to 70% off retail prices — which makes sense, considering Century 21's fancy glass-and-concrete annex usually shills high-end designer goods (think Nicholas Kirkwood, Diptyque, Chloe, and super-luxe items like Birkin bags and Rolexes).
If the dress range from last season's sample sale is any indication, expect to have your choice of everything from party-ready A-line styles to work-appropriate sheaths, as well as a host of gowns adorned with sequins, sparkles, and general shininess. We specifically remember a dark purple floral gown ($299), a wonderfully flow-y gold gown with a deep v-neck ($269), and a black gown with leather-trimmed cutouts at the waist ($279).
