[Broke in the City] Diane von Furstenberg Sample Sale
Diane von Furstenberg Bairly Louche Dress & Ilse Skirt
Today was the first day of the bi-annual Diane von Furstenberg Sample Sale. Unfortunately, the sale was every bit of crazy that I'd been reading about online. Women would push you "out of the way" in order to browse the racks, remove garments from "your area" or your hands if they were particularly bold and let me not forget to mention the women with infants. In the great city of New York, where plenty of new mothers are jobless spendthrifts with foreign nannies, I cannot understand bringing a child into the wilderness of a DVF sample sale. I witnessed children being knocked around like balls in a pinball machine so that their mothers could try on a dozen looks at a time. Fortunately, I went prepared: I wore baggy denim shorts, an oversized t-shirt and flats. I also brought a bottle of water because the space where the sale was being held was hotter than the devil's ass hole. Luckily, I left the sale with the two darling pieces that you see above. I probably won't return until the next sale (sometime later this year) but I do know what to expect in the future: ravenous shoppers.
