The Diane von Furstenberg sample sale is kicking off the post-holiday weekend shopping line-up. This morning the sale opened to an eager crowd of VIP shoppers that were no doubt looking to capture a glimpse into the legend of the DVF sale.
As with most sales, the legend is far gone. There are no sample sale racks and there aren’t many items from the current summer collection. On the bright side, prices are the same besides for a few small exceptions. This season, wrap dresses are $15 more than last season and are priced $115. (Last season, they were $100.) We even found this classic black-and-white wrap dress online for under $100 from nearly $400.
Non-wrap dresses are still $100, tops are $50, gowns are $150 and fur and leather items are $200. (That’s $50 less than last season for the leather items.) Sweaters are $50, which s $10 more than last season. Just take note, that the cover ups are categorized as $100 dresses, which doesn’t seem to make much sense.
A lot of the sale’s inventory is from winter 2016. The best items are the gowns, which are located on the far left of the sales floor. There you will find long kaftans, fabulous laced pieces and embellished gowns what are all well worth the $150 price tag. The clutches are also a good take-away for $50 and there are several nice scarves for $30. Sunglasses are more pricey than necessary at $50 considering they are all online here for $40 and are returnable.
Shoppers weren’t loading up with merchandise, which is a tall-tell sign. We suggest waiting a few days until there are additional discounts. At this point, you can find more seasonal merchandise at similar prices online.
