The doors to the Tibi sample sale opened early to their friends and family. With a large assortment of the brand's past collections, shoppers went in primed and ready to pick through the goods. After a mandatory coat check, I made a beeline to the sample section where shoppers were digging (rather aggressively) through 12 cardboard boxes of $25 samples and damaged goods. Amongst the crowd, I found people hoarding to the extreme with lots of pushing and shoving going on. As the saying goes: No pain, No gain.
The overstock apparel section was much calmer than the sample section. Notable items included Panda moto-jackets, Bosworth boyfriend blazers, Tropical wool jumpsuits, Katia faille sleeveless dresses, Simona jacquard full skirts, Simona peplum tops, Katia faille pleated skirts, Boutis embroidered tops, paneled bouclé coats, green plaid culottes, and Tibi's signature silk camis in various prints & colors. As for prices, tops were $65, shorts/skirts were $75, pants were $75, day dresses are $75, knits/sweaters were $80, cocktail dresses were $125, leathers were $150, jackets were $150, and coats were $195. There was also specially priced items from their Fall '14 collection with $250 price tags.
The shoe section was comprised of strappy sandals, peep toe mules, buckled booties, gladiator sandals, and pointy toe oxfords. Flats & sandals were $75, heels were $125, and boots were $150. In addition to the footwear placed on tables, there were 6 cardboard boxes of $25 sample/damaged shoes.
