Sample Sale Report: Doo.Ri

Stopped by the Doo.Ri Sample sale at lunch today and it was tiny but still pretty well stocked and relatively quiet and orderly. Sorry I missed some of the prices as I was in a super rush today with only 10 min to spare.

The space was clean and well lit but no changing area that I noticed only a sizable mirror that women were using for try ons.

Prices mostly under $400 for most part. Pretty pastels, signature draping and high quality merch made this sale a fun visit.

The most expensive pieces were the more formal clothing or newest clothing.
Dresses $350
Jackets $300
Tops/Pants $250

Spring 2009 was available in a plethora of bright pink shades but I wasn't able to grab the prices I think it was under $400 for most?

Fall Dresses were $275
Gowns $385

Current season shoes $200. Past season shoes $100. An assortment of boxes looked mostly untouched but sizes were mostly 37 and 38. There were also some 39-40. Unfortunately for me size 35 did not exist! Display shoes were not out.

Belts were also pretty affordable with Crystalized Belts $50 and Plain Belts $25.

There was a table of sweaters that I didn't really pay much attention to that included some chunky sweater vests. Bargain item to note? Knitted bra top $25

Pants were priced by color and material. Black being the most expensive because I suppose it's the most in demand?
Shorts or plaid pants $125
Draped or jersey pants $175
Black pants $195

There was a small amount of outerwear.

Samples were by far the cheapest and there was one rack all for under $100. Samples run between size 2-4.Spotted some woven and knit dresses, jersey pants, a cute canvas zip jacket. The shortest but super cute drapey skirt in the history of humanity! I mean it was really micro! And some uber plain tank tops.
Unfinished dress/jackets $75
Finished showroom samples $100
Bottoms $50
Tops $25

For stock, I noticed that size 6 seemed to be the most available size. Had I not already blown my budget for the month I definitely would be tempted to take a closer look at some of the samples and some of the beautiful blouses. Generally not dirt cheap but great value for many of the pieces.

You forgot to mention the Nicholas Kirkwood sample shoes at the sale for $150. Found out through Racked. I managed to snag two pairs at the last hour for $25 each!
