*SAMPLE SALE* I'm ConVinced

Influenced by the warm SoCal way of life, contemporary label Vince has a low maintenance, high impact attitude when it comes to their sartorial direction. The brand's cozy knits, breezy dresses, and other comfortable everyday separates have become must-have closet essentials for any fashionista worth her salt. The company's designs are especially ideal when putting together fabulous warm weather looks for the sun-drenched season. Appropriately enough, things have worked out perfectly because the Californian brand's sample sale has made its way back to NYC just in time for sunny vacays and summer office dressing. The sale organizer gave me an early glimpse of the discounted merchandise earlier today and, after checking it out, I'm conVinced you will find the sale to your liking.

The sale host and employees of Vince were busy getting ready for tomorrow's public opening when I dropped by this afternoon. Everything was organized by category and there were tons of off-duty styles and sleek work-appropriate apparel to browse through. In fact, at this 5-day long Vince sample sale, you'll find more women's RTW than at any of their previous sales. We're talking about nearly the full space! Unfortunately for men, that means their goods are relegated to a little more than ten racks of apparel. Nothing to scoff at but nowhere near the level of womenswear.

To mention a few highlights, I spotted drop shoulder Mélange sweaters, silk long sleeve blouses, soft bouclé jackets, long sleeve jumpsuits, silk cap sleeve blouses, bouclé leather sleeved jackets, black short sleeve leather tops, scarf print maxi dresses, pleated leather skirts, asymmetric leather jackets, feather-weight leather bomber jackets, striped t-shirts, high-quality crewneck t-shirts, white denim vests, jeans in various fits and colors, and soft leather vests. Most, if not all, of the items were from the label's most recent catalogue.

The good news is price points were lower when compared to the last Vince sample sale and that of the brand's current online sale section. The company's high quality and super comfy tops were priced as low as $19 while blouses were marked down to $79. In addition, dresses were $119, skirts were $69, denims were $79, and pants were $89.

Men's sale inventory, as mentioned before, was noticeably lacking when compared to the women's offerings. Nonetheless, the ten or so racks held a decent amount of sweaters, shorts, casual shirts, pants, jeans, and jackets. Prices for menswear ranged from $29 for basic knits to $279 for leather jackets.

Furthermore, a small table of Vince Kids can be found near the checkout registers. A quick browse through revealed a selection of denims, button-down shirts, and leather jackets all priced under $30.

This sale offers nice deals on Vince's signature cozy and comfy wardrobe staples. The only downside is there are no handbags, shoes, or accessories to speak of. I'm told inventory will be replenished throughout the event (additional boxes of new items are expected to arrive tomorrow) so fans of the label might want to stop by a few times throughout this week. Who knows? Maybe handbags and shoes will make a surprise appearance. Fingers crossed!
