It was a small space but I was the only customer browsing the racks. There were only 2 racks altogether and they held a multitude of styles in sizes XS-L. The color palette was very sophisticated and predominantly neutrals: heather grey; charcoal; black; white; putty and nude. As for styles there were several sheer jersey leggings for $50 a pop as well as black, nude and charcoal seamed knee length leggings with fun zipper details. Also sheer jersey tees & dresses with panel details or cut outs ran from $75-125. Most affordable item I spotted was a lone pair of sheer fingerless gloves at just $20. There were also interesting textured knits at $125-200. In addition there were a few random inspiration samples included retro patterned sweaters, a shirt collar and a vintage cable knit.
If you are into that downtown cool NYC aesthetic that is slightly reminiscent of the style of Jen Kao/Katie Gallagher this is a sale that I’m sure you’ll love to check out. While the prices are not rock bottom, it is still very affordable for the type and quality of the merch available. A very easy going relaxed shopping experience with not much competition. Sale runs til 8pm tonight!
