Style File: Luxury Shopping
Shopaholics, listen up. From a sample sale where you can get a Dolce and Gabbana dress for a hundred bucks, to a fab new store meant for jet-setters and the fashion elite, 7's Belkys Nerey takes us on a shopping spree in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- For those who covet name brands but don't have designer dinero to spend, here's your fashion fix. Hit the designer sample sale next weekend at Voi Salon in Sunny Isles.
Ella Aronov: "It's going to be a great event where people can get great bargains on fabulous designer pieces, up to 90 percent off the retail cost."
Most of the sample items are from some of the best closets in Miami.
Ella Aronov: "Women that just wanted to make room in their closets, never wore these pieces."
Or from local boutiques who are trying to move merchandise.
Ella Aronov: "Most of the merchandise is brand new. It has all the original tags attached."
Flora Garber: "We're giving them the opportunity to be able to afford designer clothes like Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci."
Some of the items we spied during a preview of the sale, these Chloe jeans, a pair of white Chanel shorts and a Dolce and Gabbana dress, all for under $150.
Designer John David is bringing racks of clothes only worn once on the fashion runway or used by celebrities for a photo shoot.
John David, Designer: "Out of the entire sample sale, this is probably the best deal. It retails for $1100 and selling for $150."
Hipsters and jet setters, get your credit cards ready. South Beach's hottest shopping destination, The Webster has finally moved out of it's temporary shop and opened it's new store on Collins Avenue.

Frederic Dechnik: "The second floor looks like an apartment. It's like you're going inside your dressing room and you say to yourself, 'What am I going to wear tonight?'"
The Webster also houses the first caviar kaspia in the U.S. It's a Parisian restaurant where you can dine on caviar and fish, day or night.
Frederic Dechnik: "We want the Webster to be a like an elite store worldwide."
