On Friday night I attended the Gilt City New York Warehouse Sale VIP & Media Preview at the Metropolitan Pavilion. I wasn't sure what to expect since it was held in a smaller space this time. Shoppers were in a frenzy as soon as they walked through the door, grabbing at men's, women's and children's clothing, shoes and home accessories.
The sale was jam-packed with shoppers, and my first thought was that since it was in a smaller venue, there was going to be less of a selection. Turns out I ended up spending more and buying more than any of the Gilt City Warehouse sales I have been to! Below are images of what I ended up getting, including a dress, blazer, skirt, black leather boots and two Kate Spade iPad sleeves.
Guests shopped and drank the night away with cocktails by VeeV VitaFrute and Fantinel Prosecco and cookies by Sweetery NYC. Additional drinks and snacks were provided by Vita CoCo, FIJI Water, KIND Bars and Pop Chips. In between shopping, guests enjoyed makeup applications by Benefit Cosmetics, and shoe shines and mini-manicures by John Allan's. The check out line was long and crazy, but it helped being able to have a few cocktails with music by DJ Alex Chassin while waiting! I had a ton of fun shopping the sale and excited about my purchases!
