What to Expect From the Rachel Zoe Sample Sale

Yesterday afternoon, we got a preview of Rachel Zoe's very first sample sale. Besides the actual merchandise, what's bananas about the event is how well the space is organized: Racks are arranged by size and style, with the most heavily stocked being a size six and below. Denim gets its own roomy back corner, and shoes are arranged by size on a table (for now, you can ask for different sizes to try on, but we heard one sales associate say that, once the crowds get heavy, they might not have enough staffers to accommodate requests). The sale is mostly made up of work and party attire, ranging from shift dresses, silk blouses, and dress pants to leopard-print tops, sequined blazers, and leather jackets. There's also a number of Zoe's trademark maxi dresses, skirts, and jumpsuits in different styles and colors. In addition to the sequined blazers, shifts, and long-sleeved dresses scattered throughout, there's an array of sequined tops hanging on its own quarantined sparkle rack.

Another civilized factor: There's a dressing room! In the very back, a small area is curtained off and will inevitably overflow into a long line. Luckily, a lot of the items can be slipped on over clothes if you don't mind asking your neighbor what she thinks instead of looking in a mirror. All in all, if you're a devoted Zoe fan or are planning a very sparkly Vegas trip in the near future, this sale won't disappoint, but if you're just looking for a great deal on a party dress, the prices are still pretty steep.
