Sample sale-ing in Soho

H&M tank; Tracy Reese skirt; Mossimo for Target sandals; Burberry sunglasses

I snapped a few pics while in Soho for the Alexander Wang sample sale this past weekend. It was my very first sample sale, and soooo crazy and overwhelming! I only ended up buying a blazer, but I learned a ton about sample sales - mostly that if you see anything you even vaguely like, grab it and never let it go! Or just shop online, because the deals are just as good on ebay and it's much nicer to shop in your PJ's and not get trampled by deal-seeking models in stilettos, lol...

More importantly: how freaking fantastic do you look for sample sale shopping?! I'm pretty sure I need that skirt.

If you get a chance to swing by, I'm hosting a giveaway for a pair of Jeffrey Campbell oxfords!

Your description about this is hilarious. I went on the first day and waited in line for 3 hours. Yes, this is dedication. And I totally agree with the "deal-seeking models in stilettos." Love it!
