When I first arrived, I found Stella McCartney's sale well underway with bargain shoppers crowding around the goods. About 5 rows of clothing racks were the first thing I noticed when I entered the sale. From precision-cut blazers to paillette details from her Fall 2011 collection, there were a plethora of stylish pieces to browse through. As for prices, RTW was divided into 2 groups. Price tags ending in a 9 were discounted 50% while tags ending in a 5 or 0 were 80% off. To give you a few specifics, a coral pink blazer was $399 (originally $799 & 2nd photo below), a lightweight buckled jacket was $319.50 (originally $639 & 5th photo below), a mirror dress was $299.50 (originally $2,159 & 4th photo below), a rosette fitted top was $379.50 (originally $759 & 6th photo below), a pair of printed black & white pants were $149.50 (originally $299 & 7th photo below), and cuffed shorts in oatmeal were $119.50 (originally $239 & 9th photo below). Denims were available in various styles and they were $59.50~$74.50.
The shoe section wasn't alluring at all. Markdowns were only 50% and sizes were extremely limited. A pair of glittery flats were $109.50 (15th photo below) while black strappy sandals were $129.50 (16th photo below). The handbag section could charitably called disappointing. McCartney's Falabella bags were nowhere to be seen and only a few seasonal styles of embellished mini shoulder bags ($279 & last photo below) and an oversized glossy tote (239 & 18th photo below) were available.
In the lingerie section, I spotted one rack of chemises and satin slips standing next to another rack of bras & briefs. Prices on lace bras were roughly $33~$42 while lacy briefs were under $20. Adidas by Stella McCartney merchandise was situated near the lingerie area and was comprised of parkas, hooded tops, and other sportswear items. Markdowns were 70% off.
The best deal at today's sale, I have to say, were the fragrances. Perfumes and shower gels were super affordable. Stella shower gels were $10.50 while perfume bottles were $18.90~$28.50. Tomorrow is the last day of the sale, and sadly, there will not be any restocking. If you plan on going, the door closes at 7pm today and 6pm tomorrow.
