Smart Vera Wang fans will certainly have a busy week hunting down the designer's discounted pieces. Shoppers can find the label at two very different sample sales that are starting on the same day — a bridal sale uptown, and a ready-to-wear one downtown.
Beginning Wednesday June 1st is the Vera Wang sample sale, where womenswear will be sold alongside Giles & Brother jewelry at 150 Wooster Street through Saturday. The invite specifically calls out ready-to-wear and only ready-to-wear, so this isn't where to go if you're walking down the aisle. But hopefully the deals will be just a great as the last time, when discounts up to 80% off put everything between $50 and $600.
If you have your heart set on saying yes to a Vera Wang bridal dress, then head to the Saks Fifth Avenue bridal salon between tomorrow and Friday to shop wedding gowns up to 70% off from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuiller, Reem Acra, and — you guessed it — Vera Wang.
Check out our master sample sales list for more details on when and where these are taking place. And let us know how you fare in the comments should you visit either (or both!) sales this week.
