[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.

Wow. Now that sounds like some kind of experience! Haha How is it that with otherwise well mannered people, you throw them in a room with discounted designer clothing, and all hell breaks loose! Great salvages though! ;)

As amazing as they are, I RARELY go to sample sales because I can't deal with that shit. The DVF sale was a block away from where I live and I couldn't believe (well actually I could) that some women were waiting in that hugeass line in the heat wave!!
