Daffy's Designer Deals & Apt Steal

For those of you who don't live in New York, Daffy's is a chain discount retailer similar to TJ Maxx or Loehmann's. Their stores have a lot of good deals; you just have to be patient and willing to dig. I don't have too much Daffy's shopping experience, but I heard good things about the pop-up shop so I decided to check it out.
The inventory was stock you could find at a regular Daffy's, but edited to include cocktail and dress pieces from bigger names like Love Moschino, Jean Paul Gaultier and Tracy Reese. Prices were what you would expect from Daffy's, at least 40% percent off retail. Even at deeply discount prices, some pieces were still $1,000+. The dresses that caught my attention were mainly in the $200 range, but not in my size, no luckily no temptation there - though they are updating their inventory every other day, so I will probably be back before the store wraps up.

If I remember correctly, there were about 3-4 racks of women's wear plus two walls of shoes and bags, and there was a rack of apparel and wall of shoes for the men.
My favorite part of the store was the store display in front - Jeffrey Campbell, whad up! There were a couple Chinese Laundry pairs in there, but it was all about the Jeffrey Campbells. I've been following that line for years; I remember when they didn't even have a website.

If you're still looking for a pair of summer sandals or just want a funky pair of flats, the Daffy's pop up store is definitely worth checking out. All the shoes on that table were all $30 or less! I was this close to buying the orange flats, but decided they were just a little too big.

Oh, and one last note, the staff is super friendly and helpful!
