Today was the first day of the Diane von Fustenberg sample sale. As expected the deals were great but when the air conditioning went out this afternoon, it was truly too hot to stand. One woman was so focused on the deals that she literally shopped until she dropped– an ambulance was called.

Hopefully the air conditioning will begin functioning again on Wednesday and shoppers can focus their strength on sorting through the always outstanding $50 sample sale racks rather than persevering the heat. We suggest hitting this sample sale sooner rather than later. It seems as if there isn’t to much back stock for replenishing.
Prices are the same as the prior season with wrap dresses priced at $150, regular dresses are $125 and skirts and blouses are $80. Take note that much of the merchandise is better suited for fall and winter. There are lots of long dresses and there’s lots of sparkle, sparkle, sparkle. The bags are a bit pricey but are quickly becoming a highlight of the DVF collection. Handbags are $285, clutches are $100 and canvas bags (perfect for the beach) are just $60.
Markdowns are expected later this week but in this instance we would opt for selection over savings. Just be careful not to over do it with the sequins, rhinestones and paillettes. You can click here to see more pictures from our shopping trip.
