My Latest Comments

I just went. Got a cute shirt for my husband, a skirt and a pair of Joseph kitten heel pumps for $247. Prices will probably be better tomorrow but I am sure the skirt (there aren't many) and shoes will be gone. LOTS of pants, some leather, most of the dresses and shirts are, in my opinion, fug and/or dull and mainly bigger sizes.
Haven't read the rest of the comments, but I went the first day and was unimpressed with the Dr. Jart choices. They had the Ceramidin cream and lotion (I got the lotion, but the cream is still too expensive) that had none of the Cicapair line (though they had it listed on the poster, maybe sold out in the morning), they didn't even have the sunscreen I like or the lip balms I get. I got a tocca candle and the lotion and that was about it. Last time I bought some stila stuff because I had the SampleSaleStupid High and I've never used any of it, so I avoided that stuff all together. This one was a fizzle.
Feels like most of the sales featured in Chicmi are at 260 5th and I agree with you, I'm over it. The lines, the mobs, the season before yesterday selection and the prices are generally pretty underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I still go if I love the designer, but usually the last day or two so that if I happen to score something, it truly is a bargain. Why don't they cover more showroom sample sales? That's usually where the real juice is. Chicmi, listen up! We want to know about the secret sales.
I went to this once before at a (rich) friend's recommendations. Ridiculously overpriced stuff from labels I had never heard of. Seriously, they all had normal price tags on them, I thought maybe they were 50% off or something but nope. That scarf costs $250. Maybe I'm clueless about secret fancy designers, but to me this wasn't a sample sale at all, it was walking into an overpriced boutique which was actually located on the second floor of a rapey building.
Denim jackets were $100 so it was $80 after discount. I really wish they had had cuter blazers. Such a signature piece and most of the styles were meh to ugly and even on the first day mainly larger sizes. Big disappointment. But I have been happily rocking my jean jacket all day, so I shouldn't complain.
