*SAMPLE SALE* Bodega Veneta

It's been nearly a month since I've been to a good designer sample sale. Fortunately, today's Bottega Veneta sale satisfied my luxury needs. As I first reported, Bottega Veneta tried to keep their event as discreet as possible but there was no way I was going to let it slip away. Not for my fellow Mizhattanites!

The 4th floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion was occupied with the Italian fashion house's past season merchandise. Though the inventory was limited--especially for shoes & handbags--I was definitely impressed with their selection. The gist of it all: Low quantity. High quality. Great prices.

I started my bargain search in the handbag section. Prices for Bottega's seasonal bags ranged from $250-$2000. Clutches and pouches in different styles and colors were $250, while exotic skins like python and eel were $2,000. If you are looking for something more daytime-appropriate, there were shoulder bags and hobos for $350-600. I couldn't help but notice how beautiful Bottega bags were at today's sale. From bold hues to the label's signature intrecciato weave detailing, these bags were absolutely drool-worthy. The only downside was that each person was allowed to purchase a maximum of 2 bags. Boo~.

Women's and men's shoes were located on the right side of the venue. Footwear was mostly comprised of black T-strap flat sandals, bow-detailed pumps in soft pastel hues, black leather ballet flats, snake skin sandals, and these Fisherman T-strap sandals. Prices on shoes were divided into 3 groups: $100, $150, and $250. The black T-strap sandals were $150 (originally $640 & 11th photo below), gorgeous strappy sandals were also $150 (originally $880 & 12th photo below), and black ballet flats were $100. Prices were definitely marked to sell.

I know RTW isn't as sought after when it comes to Bottega Veneta, but today's sample sale proved that it was certainly worth a look. Inventory on clothing (spring through winter, they had it all) was plentiful. I spotted lots of beautiful pieces such as leather-collared blazers in black, colorful tweed skirts from their Fall '11 collection, floor length gowns, white office blazers, and delicate silk crepe dresses. Prices were as amazing as the clothes. Dresses were $200, bottoms were $50, coats were $400, tops were $50, and jackets were $150.

On my way out, I spotted a small selection of accessories which consisted of leather belts, keychains, and wallets. The biggest steals were the $25 sunglasses and $25 swimwear.

Yes, the inventory at this sale was very limited. No, they won't be restocking for tomorrow. But, all things considered, I found the sale worth the visit. The selection of stylish items at amazing prices was too hard to resist! I usually don't recommend a sale that's low in stock but I really thought this 2-day long Bottega Veneta event was a fantastic sale.

    1. Bow pumps were only available in large sizes yesterday. I don't think they will have extra markdowns today. If they do, I will make sure to keep you updated.
