I just got back in town, and the first thing on my list to do? Visit the Cincinnati Boutique Sale. But before I do, I want to share a little write-up my friend Jenn wrote about her experience at the first day of the sale (which was actually their VIP preview event to fundraise for their philanthropy). Read more about Jenn’s fab experience at the sale below! And get your frugalista self to the best sale of the year! Thanks Jenn for sharing your experience with us!
When I was reminded about the annual Cincinnati Boutique Sale in Rookwood Commons (old Anthropologie space) on Facebook, I knew I had to be one of the first to check it out so, I made plans to stop by the Preview Cocktail Party this past Thursday! Shoes, Clothing & accessories OH MY! & a Cash Bar! Over 10 local boutiques lined the interior of the old Anthropolgie space in Rookwood Commons. I found all my favorite local boutiques; Soho, Fetish, Sara Benjamin and Morrison & Me under one roof- during a summer sale nonetheless!
What I tried on: With a glass of wine in hand, I slipped into a pair of stylish studded black pumps (Diego Di Lucca Black Studded Pumps only $92) at the Morisson & Me Sale section. You can also find UGG flip flops (sale price: $21) and Franco Sarto Metallic Silver Sandals (sale price: $42).
With a special occasion in my near future, I walked over to Soho’s booth to find a last minute designer dress. Soho sale is amazing with over 40-60% off Shoshanna dresses, 30% off Matt Benson sandals and pumps, and vintage sequin dresses by Beyond Vintage for over 50% off! I bought a stunning Beyond Vintage Black-Sequined Cocktail Dress for a wedding I will be attending in Los Angeles the end of the month.
Next, I walked next door to Soho to find, Sara Benjamin’s booth. Instantly, I fell in love with a casual, cute Joie dress (original price: $289 with 65% off). You love MISSONI???? Then, stop by The Wardrobe for Missoni knits shirts and skirts for over 50% off. Off to Arte Nouvelle to drool over a to-die-for Vivienne Westwood Plaid Handbag (sale price: $485) perfect for traveling! Looking to get sparkly?? Head directly to the heart of it all, With Love From Orazu, you can find dazzling, sparkling jewelry to wear for any occasion.
I suggest stopping by this lovely sale this weekend! Especially if you are running out of fresh, new summer items in your wardrobe!
