*She Shops* J. Mendel Private Sale

J Mendel has returned this week with another amazing luxury private sale.

The furs are stealing the show at this sale. Among the stars I spotted a navy mink coat for $5,500, a fox fur hooded parka for $3,750, a mounted coat for $8,700, a black mink long vest for $6,000, a mink jacket for $4,950, and an afghan, lamb, and cashmere coat for $8,400.

Gowns and cocktail dresses take up 1/3 of the space. I heard a lot of patrons discussing upcoming events like bar mitzvahs and shows that they need dresses for. Cocktail dresses range from $350-$700.  There are also separates, tops and skirts. There's  lots of gorgeous  and intricate pieces to choose from. 

Manolo Blahnik footwear is available again for $200. Handbags and fur accessories like key chains ($99), belts, and scarves are laid out on tables near the checkout.

Appointments are all booked for tomorrow. Walk ins are welcomed on Thursday and you can expect markdowns then too.

*She Shops* Elizabeth and James

 After skipping their fall sample sale, who else was excited to hear about this week's Elizabeth and James sample sale? This sale is hosted by Prive at Chelsea Market. Another difference is that there is no jewelry or sunglasses, but for the first time handbags are on offer! The organizer informed me that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the twin designer, have taken the Elizabeth and James brand in house recently and all merchandise at this sale are from the fall 16, resort, and spring 17 new collection that the girls designed themselves; not through licensed parties!

Handbags are lined up on tables along the left wall and they are under $200! Hobos, Satchels, and backpacks are $179. Cross bodies and small satchels are $129. Small leather goods are $29. Styles available include the Finley courier, Zoe hobo, Cynie shopper, Cynie bucket bag, Zoe carryall, Cynnie sling, James cross body hobo, Scott mini moon, Andie satchel,Trapeze cross body, Zoe saddle bag, Cynnie shoulder bag, Micro cross body, Scott clutch, Scott moon, Daily tote, Pouch, and the zip card case. 

Apparel is on racks in the rest of the space on both levels. Sizing range from 00-12. I counted over 14 racks of dresses ($119)! Gowns are $199. Denim jackets and blazers are $139; Leather jackets are $299;all other outerwear is $249. Tops are $79, vests are $109, sweaters are $99, skirts are $89, shorts are $79. Leather pants are $279; denim pants are $79; all other pants are $89. Fur vests are $319; Fur tops $339 Fur jackets $479.

Gone are the days of sample fur jackets for $100. I did not see any sample furs. The only samples I saw were tops, pants,and dresses. Samples are only available in size 4 and small. They are mixed in with the stock since they are in good condition they are priced as stock. There is back stock on both the apparal and handbags.
