Stopped by the Alice + Olivia Sale on my way from home from work and I was less than thrilled. There was still plenty of merch but much of it didn't look fresh or exciting. The prices while not horrible, are still pretty steep for this brand in comparision to other sample sales with a similar brand aesthetic.
The best deals by far were on the leggings and body suits at $9 a pop, but there was not really selection. They were thrown between 2 boxes. Leggings available mostly in neon pink nylon, tube top cut body suits in mostly yellow or brown, saw a random black version but it felt like it fit weird when I tried it on.
Only shoes I saw were Payless and there were 3 boxes containing 3 styles thrown together of neon trimmed flats or leopard or spotted crazy high platforms.
There was 1 rack of children's clothing it was really cute but $59 seems pretty steep for something that they will outgrow so quickly.
There was 1 rack of Maxi dresses, but not too interesting. I guess to note the sequins dresses would be a good buy but only a handful of them are left in black, and a few pink sequin or white striped sequined dresses remain.
One style that was a plenty? Polka dotted jersey halter dresses and swimsuits took up 2 racks.
I wouldn't go out of my way to check this one out unless they slash prices.
