*SAMPLE SALE* Viewing Vince

SoCal-based apparel brand Vince makes must-have casual staples that many fashion followers appreciate. The label will be hosting their first-ever sample sale in NYC starting tomorrow and I had a chance to preview the merchandise earlier today. As expected, the sale venue inside Chelsea Market was filled with the label's casually chic clothing. Let's have a look!

So, I have good news and bad news. First, the bad news. The sale will open to the public tomorrow morning with most of its current inventory focused on apparel. Other than 1 style of canvas belt, there are no other accessories to speak of. Now, the good news. I'm told that there will be additional shipments of merchandise arriving later this week. Therefore, it might be a good idea to drop by this sale more than once. That being said, let's talk about women's RTW.

From stylish denims to edgy leather jackets to cozy knits, everything was neatly organized and well stocked. For everyone heading to the sale, the women's section is located on the left side of the venue. Among the racks, I found skinny ankle jeans in pastel mint priced $85. This is $34 less than the online price of $119. This striped cashmere sweater was $105 at today's sale compared to the $119 online price. This long-sleeve marl sweater was also $105. The online store has it marked at $149. Finally, basic tees and tanks were $25. They're going for $39 online.

Surprisingly, the men's section, on the right side of the venue, had more inventory and a significantly better selection to choose from. Here, I found lots of button-down shirts in various colors and prints. In addition, there were stylish leather jackets, countless racks of denims, a plethora of knits, and a mountain of t-shirts.

This week's Vince sample sale starts tomorrow at 10am. It will run through Sunday, June 2nd. If and when there are any further reductions or additional restocking, I will make sure to update all of you via Twitter. Happy Shopping!!

  2. There is no Nordstrom in the city only Nordstrom Rack. This is the only choice if you don't want to shop online and actually see the product.
