*SAMPLE SALE* Hip-Hip Herrera!!

The Carolina Herrera sample sale was such a delightful and pleasurable experience. Not only because it made me feel like a Park Ave. princess, but also because it was surprisingly affordable!!

Beautiful evening gowns and cocktail dresses were aplenty. They grabbed my attention right away. Since these were Carolina's creations, I felt a little hesitant when checking the price tags. But I was totally shocked to see that even the intricately beaded $6,590 evening wear (pictured above) discounted down to $1,650. According to the sales associate, most pieces were 85%~90% off retail.

Carolina Herrera's dreamy bridal gowns, although limited in selection, were priced $1,000~$1,250 for simpler designs and $1,500~$2,000 for pieces with decorations. If you are only interested in more day–to–day RTWs, you will easily find tweed dresses and jackets for $500 and $725. Pants, skirts, and tops were at the lowest end around $100--down from $990. In addition, many colorfully elegant dresses were under $500. Oh! I also found a few Manolos in the corner with a few sizes available. But clearly, the dresses were the attraction at this sale.
