Olive & Bette's Sale Report
Just wanted to check in quickly to let you know how disappointed I was with the Olive & Bette's summer sale yesterday. The selection was extremely limited-- there was a random mix of Splendid, Susana Monaco, Plenty by Tracy Reese, a few Rebecca Taylor dresses, and pieces from various other labels mixed in. Prices were 75% off the original retail price, which is pretty good, but not amazing, considering most of these were from past seasons and can be found on sale elsewhere. There was a heap (yes, I mean heap-- just a giant pile of jeans on a table) of jeans also-- from Citizens of Humanity, Paige, AG, etc. Everything was pretty disorganized, and while I was happy to see it wasn't too crowded (for a reason!), I can say that I do not plan on attending future sales like this at Olive & Bette's. However, some people seemed to find stuff they liked, so maybe I'm just especially hard to please. But I don't think so. Take that for what you will. That's it.
