If you have some sort of black tie event to attend in the near future do I have a sale for you! For four days only starting on Thursday, Escada is having their sample sale at the Altman Building (135 W. 18th St btwn. 6th & 7th) Items will be discounted up to 85% off original retail value, and when I say items I mean beautiful pieces from the Escada Collection, Couture, Evening, and the reason that I am wishing I had a gala or somehting to go to: Badgley Mischka gowns, footwear, etc. New merchandise will be restocked daily but make sure you are deeply and madly in love with whatever you pick out because there are no exchanges or returns accepted. I think I could handle that!
