Usually, we are very cautious when shopping sample sales. There are just too many shopping days in the year to justify big purchases. Today, was a exception. The Charlotte Olympia sale offers pricing so good that it’s even worth fighting the UN traffic to get to midtown.
We all love Charlotte Olympia for her quirky shoes, but if you’re going to want to head directly to the bag section. The designer’s clear box clutches usually retail for between $1200 and $1600 but are priced starting at just $150. Smaller clutches or pouches were only $100 from over $700. There are also lots of cute little accessories and pouches that are priced between $50 and $100.
Moving on to the shoes, most styles are priced at just $150. That includes Kitty Flats, Dolly platforms and several style ornate shoes. Shoe styles that are much more popular are priced at $200 but we don’t see many priced even that high.
A lot of the same items we saw are also listed at Saks Off 5th. Like this wallet at the sale is just $50. The prices aren’t as good but perhaps you can experience a bit of the thrill while shopping from afar. Pictures from the sale are posted in the jump. We suggest you hurry over fast because we are sure there will be nothing left by the time the sale closes at at 7pm on Wednesday.
