This past Friday night I had the pleasure of going to the Gilt DC Warehouse Sale
at Longview Gallery. It was awesome, of course, I expected nothing less.
First, the ticket was $20 [if I remember correctly] which was more than worth it in the end. There was a private sale first, and ticketed admissions began at 9:30pm. I got there at 8:30pm all ready to be in line, and there was nobody in line yet, I was shocked!
So, I went down the street to the Renaissance Marriott and sat at their beautiful bar…drank some wine, ate some Caesar salad, small talked with the bartender, watched Georgetown lose [hehehe], and headed back at 9:15pm…and there was a line down the block. Ugh.
When I finally got in I didn’t know where I wanted to go to first, but my natural instinct took over and I made a b-line for the bags. There were many to choose from, but I only gave myself a $300 budget, so while the Brian Atwood clutch was screaming my name, I had to pass it up. So sad. It was priced $300, originally $1,250.
Have no fear, I found two fabulous bags I quickly grabbed. They fit perfectly with what I love in a bag, and I just couldn’t pass up the price.
Pour La Victoire ‘Vivien’ Tote in Taupe $378
I paid: $129
Nicholas K [Can’t find the name of the bag] $500
I paid $110
After I found my two new bags I kept walking to…shoes, my second natural instinct, duh. The shoe section was insanity. I mean I was getting claustrophobic as I walked through with my glass of champagne. Scary.
It was difficult sifting through everything, but I eventually was able to find two pairs of shoes I fell in love with. I actually found another pair as well, but one shoe was missing!! THE HORROR. So, I had to leave the other one behind. So sad.
Pour La Victoire Alvery Double Platform Stacked Pump $285
I paid $40
Elizabeth and James ‘Mazi’ Pump $325
I paid $29
So, as you can see, I made out pretty well at the Gilt DC Warehouse Sale. I didn’t even attempt to go through the clothes, it was way too crazy and I def did not want to deal with that.
