Filene’s Basement, however, has been mistakenly overlooked within all this frantic shopping madness. Well, not by us. While in the neighborhood, we decided to check in on our Missoni and Blumarine finds that we spotted almost a month ago. And boy, we were happy we did.
Filenes has reduced all high-end designer merchandise, dubbed “The Vault,” 50% off. So those Missoni sweater sets we spotted are now just $100, knit dresses are $200 and a print tops are $100. An intricately beaded Blumarine coat is $500, an exquisite gold sequined dress is $500 and the full length asymmetrical gown is just $300.
Some of our favorite items were already gone (perhaps because of our own doing) but there’s still lots of racks and treasures to explore.
