Stopping by Norma Kamali on 56th

20150624_183039_resized - Copydievca has spoken about Norma Kamali in the past (click link for post). she really enjoys stopping by the 56th Street store to see what is cooking.  A couple of weeks ago, dievca received an e-mail about a swimsuit sale and thought she should stop by and check out  the  sale, then wander the rest of the store.  A friend joined her in this endeavour and  it ended up being chaos.  People everywhere, downstairs, trying on suits and you weren’t allowed to go upstairs to view the collections.

A bust!

Bandeau Top

dievca was able to snag a navy blue fringe bandeau swim top for $50 off the rack — originally part of the couture line, it sold for $750. Listed as a size large — dievca’s friend is a costume designer and said she can cut it down easily. Bingo!

As always, Norma was in the store – gracious and kind as ever. Happy to see customers.
