Many chic Chicagoans made their way to the Gilt City Warehouse Sale this past weekend. Held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Warehouse, it was the perfect place to score designer pieces at up to 90% off. Designers with items up for grabs included Rebecca Minkoff, Brian Atwood, Nina Ricci, Tabitha Simmons, Vera Wang, BCBG Max Azria, Carolina Herrera, Matthew Williamson, and Derek Lam. In addition to clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories, discounted designer home items were for sale. Men’s and children’s apparel and shoes were also offered.

As a DJ spun upbeat tunes, shoppers sipped La Marca Prosecco, Whitehaven Wine, and vodka tonics from New Amsterdam Vodka. Vita Coco Coconut Water, Coco Café, and AQUAhydrate provided refreshing non-alcoholic beverages as well. There was even a delicious snack and dipping station provided by Pretzel Crisps and Seamless Web was at the event as well.

    I have yet to make it to the sale — I know, I know. It looks like there were a lot of beautiful dresses and handbags. Thanks for the pics. I can’t help but wonder, did you buy anything? They say that you can get designer goods for up to 90% off at the Gilt City Warehouse Sale. As a frugal gal, I’ve gotta ask, did you see anything priced at 90% off???
