amour vert and tina feyTHE DEAL:

Tina Frey Designs and Amour Vert are joining forces for a fun and fabulous sample sale.

Tina Frey Designs’ warehouse sale is a great opportunity to purchase one of her ethereal hand-sculpted resin useful everyday objects (e.g. tableware) and jewelry at a discounted price. Her pieces are unique and beautiful. The sale prices are 40 to 70% off retail on first-quality over-runs, discontinued colors and seconds. Expect to pay from $5 to $175 for vases, tableware and furniture and $10 to $200 for jewelry.

Amour Vert brings you high quality fashion ranging from casual to elegant styles made from natural and organic fabrics. 80% off the retail price, the samples are priced to move. Think Barneys New York quality at H&M prices. Deals worth tracking.

MY TAKE:

Tina Frey Designs designs are modern and her color pallet is striking — think jelly beans. The collection is dishwasher-safe and shatter resistant. You will treasure whatever you buy. Bonus: You can visit with Tina Frey’s adorable dog Zoe!

Amour Vert has beautifully designed fashion with an eco-conscience (e.g. every time they sell a shirt, they plant a tree.) I love the looks, the fabrics, and the ethos. Plus all their garments are manufactured in San Francisco. Fashionistas, this sale is for you.

MY TAKE:

This is not shopping for the faint of heart. This is real fashionista-warrior-style shopping. Prepare yourself for some aggressive shoppers and over-worked sales people. Keep your eye on the prize – great stuff at great discounts. You have to work for it. Sorry.

Tips:

  • Wear a tank top. You can try on a shirt without waiting for the crowded dressing room.
  • Bring a trusted friend to keep you from making any major fashion faux pas – no returns.
  • Above all, just because it is a great price does not mean it is a great deal. It is only a great deal if you are going to wear it. Remember, ill-fitting means kicked to the curb in a year. Or three years if you are a bit of hoarder, like me.
