Shoppers were treated to first dibs on a staggering roster of designer names at sample sale prices -- from Vena Cava to Rag & Bone -- though the sale will run through next week (and will be replenished daily!) for those looking to score a great deal.
This weeklong pop-up devoted to fabulous indie labels will have stock replenished daily and spectacular deals: Confirmed labels include Vena Cava (blouses discounted from $300-$75), Rag & Bone (asymmetrical dresses marked down from $125 to $55), Built By Wendy (wool jackets were $326, now $163), Sunshine & Shadow and Shelly Steffee. The roster will grow to close to 30 labels, however, including Sophomore, Filippa K, and Wren. Get a sneak peek at the opening night party here! INVEN.TORY, 237 Lafayette Street, Friday November 13, 7AM-9PM; Saturday November 14-Saturday November 21, 10AM-9PM; Sunday November 22, 10AM-5PM
Sample Sally scored herself a peaceful preview of the well-stocked Roberto Cavalli sample sale. She was courteous enough to post a video of her finds -- from strappy heels to printed dresses. The final verdict seems to be that the majority of the goods are still quite pricy (prices start at $100 but are mostly closer to the $700 range), but if you've got money to burn, we'd suggest you stop by -- the sale's continuing through Saturday. 110 West 19th Street: Thursday-Friday, 8AM-8PM; Saturday 9AM-6PM
The chic, wearable merchandise at this semi-annual sale starts at just $20 -- and in fact, none of the current sample and past seasons' stock will cost more than $95. Thursday-Friday, 11AM-8PM; Friday, 11AM-7PM; 226 West 36th Street
