Prices are Slashed Further at DVF Sample Sale

Some of you have been waiting for the day to arrive and it's here -- further reductions at the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale at 260 Fifth Ave in the Flatiron District.  Call me crazy since I stopped by this afternoon just to take a look at what they had.  I still wanted that classic DVF.  Luckily, there was a short line outside that moved quickly.  Surpris[...]

DVF Sample Sale:  A Sea of Shoppers Looking for Deals

It appears that the Diane von Furstenberg preview sale on Monday just wasn't enough for NYC women. Even before the doors opened today (the official start of the sale), there was a line around the block.  Luckily, it moved quickly once they let people inside.  But what a nightmare inside.  The racks were so close together and there were so many women crammed between[...]
