Been there: Lucky Shops

Just returned from the megawatt Lucky Shops and I must say they put on a quality event. The doors opened at noon and the very large Metropolitan Ballroom was already swarmed with fashettes looking for designer bargains. And, bargains there were. Situated at the entrance and in one of the larger booths was Michael Kors whose bags and shoes were selling at 50% off. Kooba, Botkier and the Lycra Denim bar (where you could have jeans by J Brand, ACNE, Sass & Bide, Serfontaine, Siwy or Levi's Capital E hemmed while you wait gratis) were by far the most crowded - but there was plenty of stock to go around. Marc Jacobs was selling collection bags at $300 and wallets at $50 but the selection wasn't good. H&B picked up (in her esteemed opinion) the very haute Jill Stuart Ali pumps below for a reasonable $150, considering they are currently in stores for $400. All in all, the event was a success. Lucky shops, and so did we.
