On paper, the Cynthia Steffe sale going on until 5pm today at 550 Seventh Avenue sounds great. They've got a lot of stock, and everything is priced under $50. In person, though, we found the sale a bit lacking. There was plenty of spring and fall merchandise—all sorts of jackets, coats, skirts, pants, dresses, sweaters and tops—and the most expensive thing were the coats, at $50 (pants, skirts and tops are $15; sweaters are $20; dresses are $25; and jackets are $35). But the clothing is very safe and basic, to the point of being boring, and a lot of it was trendy a year, two or three ago. Of course, for someone building an office-friendly wardrobe where safe and boring is paramount, this sale is probably a goldmine.
