Getting My Sample Sale On
There are two words every budget conscious, fashion forward New Yorker loves to hear: Sample Sale. Sauntering around Chelsea Market on a lazy Saturday afternoon, I stumbled upon one such Women’s & Men’s Multi-Brand Sample Sale (I wish it had a flashier name, but the clothes and price tags made up for this tenfold.) With brands ranging from Free People to Betsey Johnson to 7 For All Mankind, and ticket prices 50+% lower than their in-store counterparts, it’s pretty much a win-win for all parties involved. (Assuming you don’t mind throngs of people in tight spaces all going for the same shirt you are, that is.)
My two purchases of the day were based solely on my adoration of their texture: a sheer blush cropped shirt, light to the touch by Walter Baker, and a fifty shades of gray cashmere sweater by 360 Cashmere, because let’s be honest, is there any better material in the world than cashmere? I think not.
