Victoria Secret & MNG Warehouse Sale



[info frm http://shoppingnsales.blogspot.com]


I woke up pretty early today thus decided to go to this warehouse sale because I really like victoria secrets lingerie and would like to get some at 90% discount. hehe..cheapskate me.

When I entered the location at Milwanis, I was quite impressed at the amount of clothes they have and how organized the place was. However, I was rather disappointed later when browsing through the heaps of clothes.
Most of them are MNG's. But I wasn't sure if they are 100% new. Though the advertisement states that they're genuine parallel imports, I was appelled at the disgusting state of some of the blouses. Most of them were crumpled, old, and not to mention dirty too.

However, i did like the selection of bra's they have there. I wasn't sure if they are ALL Victoria Secrets. But i didn't have much choices for my size. But if you're 32A, then they have plenty of lovely bra's.

In the end i bought 4 bra's (buy 3 get 1 Free) at RM19.90 each. I was quite happy with them.
I also bought 1 MNG blouse at RM29.90. But when i showed them to hubby, he was very much appelled by the state of the blouse, all crumpled and dirty rag like.... :P
well, that was the ONLY blouse that I like. Seriously i could get something much better elsewhere with RM29.90 loh!!!
I dump it into the pail just now to give it a wash and was disgusted at how dirty the water become. Yucks....i wonder if these MNG clothes were "victims" of the recent flood or what.....

Oh......I was VERY VERY disappointed that there were NO assessories at all today!!! Suppose to have some MNG bags and shoes but i didn't see any.

Wanted to buy CK boxers for hubby but they only have Size S and M!!!!

Common!! Its only the second day of the sales and i'm here EARLY like 10something a.m.

Needless to say, i was quite dissappointed to go all the way to KL!! (Komplex Antarabangsa) and paid RM4 for parking for shitty looking clothes ........i mean if they were RM10 still ok la....but no loh!!
The pants and skirts were pretty decent though. But at RM29.90 and RM49.90 ............nehhhh.....

All in all....I wasn't very impressed.

I realize they have the same sales couple of time per-year. If I ever come again, it would most probably be to buy their bra's and not for the clothes.

I prefer to spend good money on Giordano warehouse sales. Which is by far the most genuine i've found.

I read from The Sun saying that the MNG warehouse sale was not 'official'. MNG didn't advertise that so it must be some third party doing it that's why all the dirty, rag-looking clothes?

yeah sometimes I doubt the aunthenticity of the goods sold at the warehouse sale.... they say it's VS but the tags are all cut off...

hi.... i am sorry for the disappointment...if you go to US during the HUGE sale season (January and June / July) things are really cheap.... I buy all VS stuff during sales..but even though it's not sale season, you can buy them at 80% discount online. MNG are extremely cheap in US... MNG is from Spain, but it's funny that it's still more expensive here in Brussels than US when Belgium is just few hours away from Spain...

Sounds like an interesting experience nonetheless :) I've never been to a warehouse sale.

I was told that the MNG clothes are very very "last season" (ie very old stock),and that the VS lingerie are not authentic.

But nonetheless,love your site :)

tangylynn: yup...not from MNG official distributors. These are "Parallel imports"

naddy: yala...cut off totally how to know if its authentic rite?? cut half at least still boleh nampak ma...

sea_life: I feel the MNG is a bit over priced over here in Malaysia. But i prefer them in Singapore ...they call em MANGO! :>

Moi: really?? never ever??? you'll go crazy if u find the right ones!!! hehe

butterflyz10 : ya...very old...some without buttons n all....
Thanks for ur lovely comments. :>
