As I walked up Greene St. to one of the 260 sample sale location, I was preparing myself for a line around the block and an hour wait in the 90° heat. But lo and behold, there was no line and barely any people inside. For such a hyped sale, this emptiness was a welcome surprise, but was foreshadowing for the steep prices. I ,personally, am a fan of the Herve Leger dresses, but know that finding the perfect venue for these bandage dresses can be tricky. You can’t wear them to weddings or any other formal affair and they are generally too much for a night out. So despite all the colors and shapes, the $200 price tag seems too high. But the last Herve Leger sample sale did have lower prices and saw price reductions within two days.
The sale also featured pieces from BCBG runway which were beautiful and less expensive. Both brands had dresses, tops, bottoms, jackets, and furs represented at the sale. The BCBG dresses and tops were very summery and would have to be put away until 2019.
We rated the Herve Leger and BCBG runway sample sale an 8 out of 10 for the beautiful inventory and steep prices.
What: Herve Leger and BCBG runway sample sale at 260.
