Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale Review 11/14
Ah, it is so refreshing to find a sample sale organizer who actually organizes! This week, CP hosts a sale featuring clothing, shoes, and accessories from Vivienne Westwood, Malo, and Jet Set. The meticulously folded table of cardigans, arranged by colors and sizes, is the first thing you lay eyes on as you enter their 6th floor space. Sizes XS-XXXL are compiled neatly of various Malo cardigans, without a single cashmere sleeve out of place. Marked 70% off, prices for these luxuriously soft sweaters range from $207-$237. A plethora of cashmere winter accessories by Malo are also on hand; gloves, mittens, knit hats, and scarves ranging in price from $215-$585. In addition, continue to get ready for the snow by checking out the Jet Set Bomber Jackets that are hung in a rainbow display (even the fur lining on the jackets is rainbow in color!), all being sold for 70% off.
Five pairs of Vintage Vivienne Westwood heels are tucked quietly away in a corner, far from their newer models as if to not make them feel old, or perhaps a better adjective, “loved.” These funky, colorful shoes are certainly worth mentioning. All five are a size 38. My top three choices of the group, are models Skyscraper Flame Velour in Lido Brandy ($640), Skyscraper Renta Shoe in Capretto Pink ($530 – pictured), and Skyscraper Seditionary in Black Green Lido Salvia ($820 – pictured).
To continue on the topic of cool shoes, Vivienne Westwood’s less expensive shoe brand, Anglomania + Melissa feature plastic shoes in fun styles. The Lady Dragon Turquoise Sling Back (pictured) is a fun accent ($185) and the perfect pairing to Vivienne’s Tippo Pelle Handbag ($290 – pictured) in the color Prodotto – this unique purse is made with buttery leather!
The back room plays home to apparel by Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label, Anglomania, and Lee collections for 60% off. Not a whole lot to sort through, but certainly a few mentionables. My attention was first grabbed by a red and pink infused Plaid Shirt Dress w/ Tie $207 (orig. $518) by Red Label, with the Stretch Black Lee Denim Skinny Jeans ($145) in Clean Black and the Bomber Side Fastening Jacket ($315) by Anglomania tying in a close second.
It sets me at ease when a sample sale is calm in atmosphere, soothing in colors and textures, and price marked fairly! The Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale may not have everything you’re looking for, but it is certainly a sale that could have something unique for your closet this season!
