When I think of JLo designing clothing, I immediately picture that infamous green Versace gown that she wore for the 2000 Grammys. You know the one that I’m talking about. If you don’t know, click here. But, I have a soft spot for Jenny from the block (and who am I to judge?). Anyhow, I couldn’t resist the lure of the sample sale.
So here’s the dealio:
There was a good assortment of dresses, tops, and jeans and a small selection of shoes (most 9.5’s) and a few bags. Prices ranged from $5 for JLO/Just Sweet tanks to $80 for leather goods. There were no dressing rooms, so women were trying on clothes toward the back of the room where there was a full length mirror. It got a bit crowded around 6:30. The sales girls were very helpful in giving suggestions and bringing sizes.
Dresses for JLO/Just Sweet were $20 but they were mostly polyester. There were some rayon halter maxis for $20 as well. A lot of sequins and ruffles, and similar to items you would find at F21. Silk Sweetface dresses were $40 and brightly colored silk tops were $20. They also had blazers $25-35.
I tried on a pair of size 28 skinny grey jeans which I could not squeeze into, so I gave up on jeans. Then I found a Justsweet cropped white leather jacket and at $40 (marked down from $238). After pawing through mounds of polyester, I unearthed a pair of suede black shorts for $20 in one of the sample bins. Score!
I didn’t find my green dress with a plunging neckline down to my navel, but I did walk away from the sale with some wardrobe staples at an excellent price.
