I was devastated when Jimmy Choo didn't have their sample sale this year. All I can say is screw you Jimmy Choo, the Tamara Mellon sale is SPECTACULAR. If you haven't heard of her she is the former Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Jimmy Choo. I've loved her eponymous line and I've had my eye on her for a while (love her fringed bags!) but her goods were out of my price range. Today, they were not :)
The sale started yesterday and somehow I missed it. I can only imagine what I missed out on yesterday. Ugh. I took pictures after I finished shopping but my camera is on the fritz so they're all blurry. If you've read the Racked sale report you have an idea of what's inside. This sale is the best sample sale I've been to in years...and I've been sample saling for over 20 years now. It's like the good ole days when they actually sold samples (all gone today) and stock was sold for rock bottom prices. Again, write down the address (260 5th Ave., between 28th and 29th), stand up and go already!
This morning they got another shipment in - and who knows, there may be more tomorrow.
I went in looking for these Submission studded patent leather sandals (which are online for $995 right now!) and just as I was about to leave they found a pair hiding in the wrong box. They were a whopping $55 - no tax! It's a 41 but they must have been mis-sized because they fit. In all the other shoes I took a 40 other than the pointy heels which are 39.5. Typically I wear a 40 in a Jimmy Choo and Louboutin and a US 9.
Here is my entire shoe haul - they were all $50 or $55 a pair. The materials are so luxe - snakeskin, ponyhair, buttery leather, patent leather - they are all such beautiful shoes. When prices are this low you do NOT hesitate. You grab and let your friends buy your extras later :) My husband complained they all look so similar but in my defense, some heels are higher than others and I'll probably let a pair of two go. We'll see...
The dresses were $50 so I grabbed this beautiful winter white stretch wool sheath. They had a black too but I own 100 LBDs so I was looking for something different.
All I can say is Tamara, you are amazing! Thank you for sharing these spectacular deals with the public. I loved you at Jimmy Choo and right now I love you even more. Thank you!
Now go. The sale in on today until 8 pm, tomorrow 10-7 and Sunday 10-4. This is going to be the sale that we're going to be talking about for years!
