La Perla Sample Sale: From Bustiers to Teddies, Everything For Your Boudoir
There was a line to get in with an average wait time of 20 minutes at the La Perla Sample Sale. And you can expect a similar line to pay. This is definitely one of the more crowded sales I have been to and it takes a bit of maneuvering to avoid constantly bumping into others while ensuring that you get your pick of the inventory.
There were at least 3 price lists namely; swimwear, accessories and sleepwear. However, I didn’t notice any of the items on the accessories list. The lowest priced items were; thongs, hosiery, jewellery and leggings for $20.
This sale has everything has everything for your boudoir, from bustiers to teddies and robes to babydolls. It was simply a lace, and satin affair. Bras and panties were in separate bins marked by size and one had to really dig in and sift through. I didn’t notice any bra and panty sets.
If you’re considering a new swimsuit for this summer then do stop by this sale. There are many two piece options and very few one piece swimsuits including monokinis. I saw a navy blue one piece which was from the Spring 2011 collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier.
What else can I say about La Perla which has not already been said? Its sexy and feminine, which translates into a feeling good factor just by looking at it. Dare to wear?
