Recap: Gilt City Warehouse Sale VIP Night - May 2013

On Friday, May 3rd, I attended the VIP kick off of the Gilt City Warehouse Sale - one of my favorite shopping events that I make sure I never miss! I got some amazing deals at this season's sale, including the James Jeans Twiggy Legging Jean in Scarlet for $39 (regularly $145), Catherine Malandrino Pleated Boatneck Dress for $79 (regularly $325) and Charlotte Ronson skirt in Military for $69 (regularly $295).

New at the sale was Closets for Causes - celebrity closets for auction, benefiting various charities. For the Gilt City sale, Closet for Causes included clothes from the closets of Sophia Bush and Carmen Electra with proceeds benefitting Pencils of Promise. Lucky for me, since Carmen Electra is petite I knew I'd find a few pieces from her closet, like a pair of Rich & Skinny wax coated jeans for $49.99 (regularly $198) and Another vest for $19.99. Sam also got some great men's deals, including a BLK DNM leather bomber jacket in Camel for $300 (regularly $1190), Fred Perry bag for $49 and New Balance sneakers for $20. There were other great deals that guests were snatching up, like 2 bottles of Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for $10 and Marvis toothpaste for $5. 

While shopping I also enjoyed some La Marca Prosecco and New Amsterdam Vodka mixed with Vita Coco Coconut Water, while snacking on Pretzel Crisps and Nutella.
