Sample Sale Report: Be & D
While I struck out in my attempt to make it to the Yigal Azrouel sample last night because they closed early, here is a look from the Be & D sample sale. If you are a size 36 or 39 you're in luck because it's sample size and you can pick up some uber tongue-in-cheek sneakers for just $25 a pop! If you're not a sample size, don't fret, I saw shoes ranging from a 36 all the way to a 41 although the greatest concentration of sizes was between a 36 and a 39 1/2. There also were a few size 43 Men's sneakers if you're so inclined to pick up a pair of skeleton printed shoes for the man in your life for $25 as well. Stock sneakers are $45, Other shoes ranged from $60 to about $140. Rainboots all appeared to be a size 8 and samples are $45 a pair. Belts are $30 and come in both small and medium size.
Aside from shoes, the big draw would be purses and they have all shapes and sizes, in a variety of colors from black to neutral to neon.
Small leather goods ranged from lazer cut leather iPad cases for $120 to leather pouchettes and wallets for $40-80.
There were a huge assortment of handbags in faux snake, lazer cut, ruffled and studded variations. Clutches were $200, the snake trapeze bags above $270, $275 for the slouchy bags above.
The heavily studded bag weighs in at $375, the ruffled bag $350, $300 for the lazer cut tote, $100 for the mini purses.
It was $260 for the leather trim tote, $125 for the combo tote beside it, the all leather color block totes are $350 a pop while the fun neon snake number is $270.
If you're looking for some flashy kicks with fun graphic elements or some bag with rock & roll flair, this is your sample sale.
