Villa Moda's Seasonal Sale has to be the craziest shopping day of the year. I love the thrill of spreading the word to my close fashionistas about the sale and getting a good deal, but queuing in line for hours and fighting over items is not my thing. My fashionable sources told me that people lined up outside the store around 9:30 AM even though doors open at 10AM. Girls were holding 6-7 Prada bags and 4 pairs of Gucci shoes to buy, it takes 45 minutes to an hour to add an item to your VM's card purchase and pay your bill, some women were extremely rude to staff and fellow shoppers. That is so surreal! I can't stand the attitude, the noise, the general craziness of it all. And that is why I avoid those sales on their first day.
I want to share with you couple of these crazy photos that I received from my lovely readers by e-mail.
Delly was nice enough to send us the above photo which she took before the doors open at 9:40am. I guess the weather was not an issue here.
Another fabulous reader sent us the other 2 photos posted here. One was taken outside Gucci and the other outside Miu Miu. You can clearly see how long and crowded the lines were.
I think Villa Moda needs to be more organized and maybe hire more staff to control the situation and help out with the fitting, sizes, payments... etc.
If you have any photos to share, please do send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
