The Gilt City New York Warehouse Sale was back this weekend, with a kickoff VIP shopping party last night at The Altman Building.
Guests enjoyed a night of shopping with up to 90 percent off retail on clothing, shoes, accessories and home decor. The 2-hour shopping event included complimentary signature cocktails from New Amsterdam Vodka and a selection of Dark Horse wines, sparkling water from Perrier, chilled espresso beverages from Illy Issimo, KIND Bars, Farmer's Crate Mango Thins, Mini Makeuppers and brow waxing by Benefit Cosmetics, Costume-style jewelry by greenbeads by Emily & Ashley available for purchase and Music by DJ Jow Lopez of SounDecisions.
There were a few notable changes this time around, like upon entering we were handed a card that listed further color coded discounts for an additional 10-40% off. We also received a tote to put all items in, which is so much better then having to carry everything around. Also, I noticed that the racks were organized by dresses, tops and pants, making it easier to sort through merchandise. I did, however, notice that there were more irregular and damaged merchandise and unfortunately there was a lack of size 5 shoes.
None of the items I purchased had the additional % off, but I did get a few noteworthy pieces at great prices, including a Boy by Band of Outsiders Macrame Crewneck Pullover for $79 (MSRP: $535), Design History V-Neck for $45 (MSRP: $127.60), Yummie Tummie Angela Micro Slip for $9 (MSRP: $68) and Marc by Marc Jacobs iPad cases for $5 each (MSRP: $42).
