It's a Rainbow of $75 Dresses at Tracy Reese!

Tracy Reese has been one on my favorite designers for years. I'm obsessed with her colorful prints and whimsical, girly designs. Her sample sale officially opened at 10am yesterday, but I got there a little early and they were already open. Good thing I did because it was mobbed in that first hour. My niece is having a Bat Mitzvah in a couple weeks so I'm on a mission for a new dress. I made a beeline right to the fancy stuff. Unfortunately they only had size 4 samples yesterday morning and right now I'm a 6. I squeezed into a few pieces but nothing was calling to me. The good news is that today they should have received a shipment of stock sizing so as I write this post I'm considering heading back to see if I get lucky. For now, let's take a look inside the sale...

Typically they price their Plenty line cheaper but this year pricing was across the board by category - other than her Black Label dresses which were $125 (somehow not on this price list). Dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, and coats were $75, jackets were $60, pants were $50, skirts, shorts, blouses, and sweaters were $40, tanks, camis and shoes were $30. They also had some runway shoes from SJP that were $75.

Tracy made a brief appearance at the sale - I was going to go and say hello when a clueless shopper stopped her and asked if they had more tops. By the time I stopped laughing she was gone. Sample sale etiquette 101 - google the designer so you know what they look like - and don't bother them with stupid questions. Ask the people working the sale LOL.

Black label dress $125.

Another black label dress.

Coat $75.

Every time I tried to take a picture, someone would stick their hand in and try to grab something from my shot LOL. It was pretty crazy in there.

You know I had to take a closer look at the shoes. Inside the boxes were lots of size 39-41 runway shoes that she must have collaborated with SJP. I loved the floral booties but the heels were a little high for me. This year I need to buy more everyday shoes instead of amazing heels that can only be worn a couple hours at a shot.

I didn't realize until I got home that these plenty sandals may have only been $30 - if I go back I'll have to take a second look. They had more sizing (rather than just 39-41) in these.

I'm linking up a few pieces I spotted at the sale :)

260 W 39th St (between 7&8th), 19th fl

I also ran to Carmen Marc Valvo after Tracy - I didn't share on Insta because it was already pretty picked over by the time I got there (which was only an hour after they opened). Very few pieces had sleeves which is something I always look for in a dress/gown. The sale was mostly samples with a couple racks of stock. Sizing for samples looked like a 4. For samples, separates were $25, short dresses were $50 and gowns were $100. For stock, it was $300 for gowns, $200 for short dresses and $50 for separates. It was a one day sale (too late, sorry) so I'm only giving you a peek so you can decide if you want to go next year.

If you're headed to Tracy Reese, I would recommend going today for more sizing and the last day for possible markdowns. If you see me come say hello!




  1. love that long printed maxi in silk. you're so lucky!! good luck! can't wait to see what you got

    1. I didn't get anything :( I'm gonna wait until there next sale when I'm hopefully a 4 again.

  2. The dresses look amazing but I hate the lack of a fuller size range. So disappointing.

    1. Yeah - that stunk. i didn't go back so no Tracy for me this round :(

  3. So many colors! I'm starting to embrace the rainbow and move away from my black tshirt and jeans look :-)

  4. The colors are beautiful, not that I would have anywhere to wear those, haha, fun to see though :)


  5. Oh, and that fashion girl tote would have come home with me ;-)
