Today we got a taste of what it's like to be a VIP. The taste is nothing less than delicious. It was like eating an ice pop on a perfect summer day, you know those when the humidity is so low that your ice pop actually stays intact.

Right: SIP Day at 260 Fifth (on DVF day)
On the other hand when it comes to SIP day, that ice pop might be equally as delicious, but you always end up having to deal with the mass amounts of sticky sugar running all over your fingers. Sorta like the way we all have to deal with the throngs of people picking and pulling and pushing and shoving at the opening day of any designer sample sale.
So back to the VIP day, aka the J. Crew press preview day. We went with all of you in mind of course. Now that we have all the inside scoop on merch and pricing, it is time to share it with all of you. We think you will be happy campers. :)
There is an awesome display of jewelry with a ton of stuff. Prices range from $15 for rings and cuffs, to $25 for bracelets, to $35 embellished chains and $60 for statement necklaces. Simple chains will run you $20. Hurry over here first, you know how quick people can be when something sparkly is blinding them...
As for apparel, bathings suits are priced at $40 for one-pieces, and $25 for separates. Sweaters are between $30 and $35, but up to $90 for the cashmere. Dresses range from $30 for simple pieces to about $299 for fancy cocktail frocks. Blazers and simple jackets cost $110, while anything leather costs between $199 for shorts and $399 for a jacket.
Tanks and tees in all materials range from $15 to $30, this includes Madewell. (While we are on the subject, Madewell can be found towards the rear right, and prices are pretty much the same as the J.Crew stuff).
Basic shorts and skirts range from $25 to $40, and there were tons.
If you are in the market for some winter trousers, a pair at this sale will run you $25 for wool and $75 for twill.
Hats and scarves are a cheap $15, and bags range from $20 for canvas totes to $120 for leather pieces. And yes, there were bins upon bins upon bins!
If you plan to bring your little J. Crew pal along, there is enough stuff to supply an entire summer 2012 mini wardrobe. Steer clear of the "makeshift dressing rooms" staged behind the Crew Cuts.
All in all, we deem this sale havoc-worthy. Consider yourselves warned; tomorrow will be complete and utter chaos... who knows, we might even be back for seconds ;)
