Calling all fashionistas. Now that we've got your attention, it’s time to let you know that the spending forecast for this weekend looks rather high. That’s because the Gilt City Warehouse Sale is coming back to Miami for the first time since November 2013, and so do the savings since designer everything will be up to 80 percent off.
Think of this like a two-day shopping party. One filled with gratis cocktails and on-site makeup applications, as well as racks upon racks upon racks of clothing and accessories from Gilt’s top brands.
If you’ve been thinking about redoing your wardrobe for spring: a) good thinking b) this is the way to do it. Gilt has teamed up with Zyrtec to showcase this season’s fashion and beauty trends, all of which are suitable for the outdoors (because Miami).
Attendees will indulge in complimentary makeup applications (perfect for continuing your evening) and secrets on how to eliminate watery eyes, red nose, and puffiness (otherwise known as allergy face), all whilst sipping on cocktails from Palm Breeze.
But let’s get to the important stuff: the brands. Hundreds of the biggest names in fashion, as well as up and coming designers will be at your disposal. Zac Posen? Yep. Carolina Herrera? Of course. Vera Wang? Duh. Oscar de la Renta? Check. Badgley Mischka? Double Check. We could continue but you get the idea. Guys, there’s stuff for you too. Expect Paul Smith, John Varvatos, and GANT to name a few. Home décor and children's clothing will also be offered.
The fun starts tomorrow with a late-night shopping party from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. And while there’s an admission fee ($20), you’ll easily make that up with two drinks and one single item you buy at virtually nothing. Happen to be a Gilt City member? Good girl. For your continued support, you can get in to the early access media session tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. for which a limited number of tickets (priced at $25) have been set-aside for members. What that means? You’ll get first dibs on everything prior to anyone else. About those Friday night plans. Now might be a good time to cancel them.
Can’t make it tomorrow? The festivities continue Saturday with $10, two-hour sessions starting at 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. Consider it a Saturday well-spent.
Tickets for the Gilt City Warehouse Sale are still available through giltcity.com.
