So I hit up the Tory Burch sample sale this week and was greatly disappointed. The last sale had such a better selection. Granted, TB has much better clothes for spring and summer, I guess I was just expecting cuter sweaters and the like.
The shoe selection wasn’t good either. There were mostly black boots, and I have so many of those, they had one pair of practically flat brown boots (I say practically because the small heel they did have was a squat gold thing no bigger than a quarter of an inch) and a pair of brown mock-croc ankle boots that really weren’t very cute. The only shoes I liked were her canvas converse-y flats and they were asking $75 for them, which I found ridiculous for a pair of glorified sneakers.
Naturally I got the e-mail today that they are dropping the prices (about $20 per item) and got all annoyed because for the 3 shirts I did get, I could have saved $60. The weather is supposed to be terrible all weekend, so who knows if I would have made it in anyway, it’s just irritating. On the other hand, the pants did go down to $45.00 a pair and if I can get into the city over the weekend, I’m going to get a couple of pairs because they fit me really nicely.
So if you’re in the city and you can stop by, the sale is worth it. If you’re not, I’d say that this is one you could go without. Feel free to post any specific questions about what they had when I was there Wednesday and I’ll answer to the best of my ability
