We've just been to the sample sale of Versace in central Milan. We had to stand one hour in the queue outside and then another hour of queue to pay. However they did have some nice things to good prices. I just bought a belt and a silk scarf but the handbags, wallets and shoes were also very tempting.... Torri instead got himself a half new wardrobe with jeans, t-shirt and shoes.
In London I always used to go to the Burberry sample sale and I don't know why I haven't even thought of finding the sample sales since I came to Italy. It's all about contacts. My next mission is to find a way to get invited to the Gucci sample sale!
