I stopped by Century21 in the Financial District for the Diesel Sample Sale on opening day. C21 is known to host private sample sales every 2-3 weeks and this sample sale was honoring discounts of 75% off original prices. The main attraction was women’s denim which was arranged on racks by sizes and prices began at $55.00. While I found many of the styles to be outdated with super low rise denim styles their were plenty of styles and sizes to choose from. There are also a few racks of women’s dresses and jumpsuits and prices are beginning in the $75.00 range. There is also a rack of the Diesel Black and Gold collection but a few of the items look damaged. I found the sale to have very low prices but I wasn’t impressed with any of the merchandise and left empty handed. The sale runs throughout Sunday afternoon and as such we should expect further reductions shortly.
I love makeup. M.A.C., Dior, and Urban Decay are some of my go-to and favorite makeup brands. While I love them for many reasons, they can also be pricey at times. I call the Financial District of NYC home and I am lucky to have an E.L.F Cosmetics within walking distance, a place where I go for affordable cosmetic finds. The E.L.F Cosmetics located at 139 Fulton Street is a relatively small store but is well-stocked with a variety of products and an added bonus is that it is always very clean and organized. The store allows customers to sample products before they purchase them. E.L.F, which stands for eyes, lips, and face, caters to all of these makeup needs while also carrying nail polishes, makeup brushes, and makeup bags. With prices starting at just $1.00 it is hard to leave the store empty handed. My all time favorite E.L.F. product is their “Red Carpet” lip stain, which is only $3.00 and lasts all day without smudging.
