  1. Yes! Alexis Bittar. This totally makes up for missing Anna Sui this month. Do you know which sales you're covering? I might run into you there without knowing it. :)

    1. I haven't decided yet. There are so many great sales in December!

  2. SO many sales...MUST RESIST!

  3. December is going to be Too. Much. Fun. Don't know if anyone cares about Lulu Frost or not, but her sale is Dec 4-6, 12 East 20th. I went last year. She'd turned her showroom into a magical wonderland, and of course the designer herself is so sweet--creative, smart and down to earth.

    Mizhattan--hast thou any news of Diane von Furstenberg?

    1. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but DVF won't be hosting a sale this winter.

  4. Can't wait.. Calendar has been updated!

    1. Mine as well! I hope you find a ton of goodies!!

  5. This list makes me nostalgic. I remember going to Alice and Olivia when they made pants out of unholstery like fabric, and sold them at Clothingline. Escada was my first ever sample sale. Thank you, Mizhattan, for this list and editing it down so nicely.

    1. I hope you get a chance to shop at a few of these sales. I'll be making more lists throughout the month, so keep an eye out.

  6. Anybody heard anything about how Escada sale is going?

    1. Long line outside about an hour as of noon.

  7. Does anyone know about DvF Winter sale?! Have not seen anything yet. :-(

    1. There will not be a DVF sample sale this winter.

  8. What are pricing and merchandise like at escada?

  9. how is the line today??

  10. Escada sale – there is a lot of merchandise some 90% off but most is 75% + 10% - only a hand full of gowns. A lot of jackets, skirts, sweaters, pants and dresses. Shoes are nice but almost no 5s some 5.5s and a lot of other sizes. Belts – not that many – I think I have seen only few bags and no wallets… No line - i went around lunch time.

  11. Mizhattan!

    Any news frm the friends and family of Stella McCartney sale!

    pls let us know!


  12. hey Miz- in the past Eberjey has sent VIPs an invite a day earlier than the public... any word on this? Thanks for everything!

    1. Hmm... I haven't heard anything but I doubt it'll be different this year.

  13. Dear dear dearest,
    If anyone reading this bought this poncho ( from Haute Hippie this week and are having any sorts of second thoughts. PLEASE reach out to me and I'd gladly take it off your hands (for the price you paid of course) and thank you forever!

    Reeeeeally hoping someone here answers.


  14. we are doing Warehouse Sample Sale - Over 75 Brands -Upto 85% Off Have a look at our Facebook links for more info and pictures.

    Warehouse sample sale:
    we ope u can send the word out

  15. Will the vera wang sample sale have bridesmaid dresses as well or only bridal gowns?

    1. The sale is focused only on wedding gowns and bridal accessories. No mention of bridesmaid dresses.

    2. I went today. I was surprised by the assortment of gown for the bride, mother of the bride and bridesmaids. You should definitely go check it out. Not sure how the pricing is, but they had 2 full racks of bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dresses.

      I went there for a veil and the selection was meager and expensive. But you should be able to find something within the gowns section. There had to be at least 12 racks worth of dresses.

    3. Thank you for the update Alexandra!

      I apologize for the misinformation mushkie.

    4. I don't think you need to apologize Miz! You gave us the scoop. It's up to us to discover it...and besides, sample sales are not always exactly what those companies advertise.
