Walking into Clothingline’s Roberto Cavalli sample sale made me feel like I was on set at Animal Planet. Wow! Is the only way I can describe it. (I don’t mean that in a good way.) The clothing was absolutely horrendous! Gowns were lined up against the wall with bright colors, intense beading, and crazy patterns. The racks in the center contained more dresses with beading and beaded fringe. We also found a variety of snakeskin clothing. Vests, dresses, jackets, and skirts contained this reptilian print. We understand animal print is coming back this fall, but I don’t think you really want a snakeskin fringe jacket with matching skirt.
Men’s was no picnic either. The animal theme continued. We now step into the southern Sahara desert to find a men’s suit with lion heads printed on the jacket and pants. You can also shop tops and bottoms of various bright colors, animal prints, and rhinestones among others. Men are actually in better shape at the Roberto Cavalli sale. Men can score undershirts and briefs in all sizes for $15. Additionally, men can pick up leather dress shoes and sneakers for $149.
We rated the Roberto Cavalli sample sale a 3 out of 10. Honestly, the sale lost the majority of its points because of the hideous clothing. Major deductions also came from the pricing. All items were 85% off the MSRP. However, prices were mostly still in the $1,000 range. We didn’t find any women’s items for less than $500. Unless you want to grab some men’s shoes or baics, the Roberto Cavalli sample sale is a hard pass. Stay home on this rainy Tuesday, and save your money for another time. Happy shopping!
This post is dedicated to all the snakes that gave their lives to make this awful sample sale possible… RIP
