The near empty showroom of the Be & D Sample Sale allowed shoppers to aimlessly browse edgy bags and comfortably try on funky flats. The showroom also provides a birds eye view of employees manufacturing new merchandise and/or prototypes, a sneak peek at up and coming designs.
Being unfamiliar with the brand prior to today, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of shoes and their cool embellishments. The Camouflage Joe Flats ($100, orig. $350) had studded detail in the back – a signature of Be & D’s – the perfect signature weapon for a fashionista superhero. Variations of this studded nickel embellishment appeared also on the Black Hadleigh Heel ($70, orig. $385) as well as on the Christie Ballet Shoe ($100, $298), which comes in a wide variety of colors including black, cream, camouflage and cobalt blue, and my favorite of the sale, the Savile Black Buckle Shoes ($50, pictured). Cute Greenpoint Sandals ($50, orig. $365, pictured) are available in black and ivory, and their counterpart, the Greenpoint Sneaker, is only $25.
Stacks of Sample Shoes can be found in the back of the room. There were not many worth a second glance, but given their price ($25) perhaps you can make do with a pair or two.
An attached room holds the bright and studded leather purses, pleasantly arranged with a full-length mirror allowing you to model your hot new bag. The Amanda Bag ($300, orig. $998) caught my eye, as did the Brady Bag in Sand ($375, orig. $998), the Dallas Green Ostrich Bag ($625, orig. $1698), the Pippa Python Shoulder Bag in Dark Mint ($175, orig. $338) and lastly the Nigarbo S Porio Bag in Aqua ($250, orig. $975, pictured).
I was pleasantly surprised by the bag samples that were on sale. They all were unique and in great condition, namely a funky orange and black leather sample with snakeskin like detail ($200, pictured), and a rust color leather bag in two different sizes ($200).
Overall the Be & D Sample Sale is nothing to get yourself in a tizzy over, but the fair prices and quality deals on shoes and bags that will spice up your outfit is definitely worth a look see if you happen to work or live in the midtown area.
