If you're looking for a good alternative to the long lines at Botkier today, we were stunned by the designer selection at the News downtown: Band of Outsiders, $40 Cheap Monday jeans, and tons of Vena Cava (even shoes)!
The real surprise of the sale -- in addition to the $40 Cheap Monday jeans and spectacular Wayne silk dresses for $185 -- was the rack of Vena Cava for Via Spiga shoes in the back, all just $75 (originally $300 and up).
One of two racks of Vena Cava boasted long printed dresses, cocktail frocks, and skirts -- with a few choice silk printed tanks for a mere $45.
The Band of Outsiders and Boy by Band of Outsiders selection was still pretty expensive (a testament to how pricey the line actually is): this trench was $500, while Boy trousers are $100. Shipley & Halmos trousers, however, are just $30.
The massive selection of Clu was just overwhelming, though the wares were helpfully color-coordinated. Clu dresses are $50, while cardigans are $40.
