It's that time of year again! We don't usually post on New York City sample sales because there are so many, and, well frankly, there are other sites that do it better than we can. But when two of our favorite designers host sample sales, we can't help but dish the deets.
Diane Von Furstenberg was one of the first sample sales we've ever hit--and spoiled us for everything else. The selection is amazing, the prices are fab (if memory serves, dresses are $150) and we did once meet DVF while she was shopping her own sale! The prices usually drop on Friday, but your first choice dress or skirt may be sold out by then. Here's hoping the frothy creation above will be one of the picks.
Diane Von Furstenberg Sample Sale: 260 5th Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets. Tues: 9-6:30; W 10-8; Thurs 10-7 and Fri 9-3
We're also partial to L.A.M.B's handbags that start at $150 at the L.A.M.B. sample sale, including the Cambridge Satchel ($150, above) and the Moneague tote ($195, below). The L.A.M.B. Sample sale is at 145 W. 18th Street between 6th and 7th Aves. from 10-8.
