I don’t know about you, but it’s been really tough trying to keep up with all the sample sales this week.   Another one worth checking out this weekend is the VPL sample sale where designer Victoria Bartlett’s coveted underthings and luxe RTW are discounted up to 75 percent off.

I made a quick stop earlier today to check out the offerings.  They include a couple of racks of actual samples such as slouchy open-back knits for under $100, skirts and athletics-inspired bottoms for under $100, dresses at $70, breaker tanks for $50 and more.  Special bins offer $10 to $30 undies and bras.  There are also swimwear (starting at $30 for bottoms and $54 for the top). A few runway shoes are tagged at $125.   Current season pieces are 50 percent of the ticketed price. The Opposites Poncho (sweater) is now $106 (was $265) and the DBP Skirt is $ 118 (was $295).

Where/When: VPL Showroom, 5 Mercer Street (at Howard Street); 646-912-6141.  May 20 to 21.  Daily (10-7p).
