Even though their sale posting stated no photography, Racked managed to get lots of pics on the inside. I seriously have to stop being a goody two shoes LOL. Unless you are a die hard fan and typically pay full price for her hats, I'd sit this one out. Overall it was really only around 50% off retail. Typically later in the week they reduce some prices so if you really want to go, wait.
I'm linking a few pieces (and similar) I saw below :)

My next stop was around the corner. I'm a huge Haute Hippe fan but unfortunately sometimes when sample sales get outsourced pricing is ridiculous. For $100-300 I can do better at the Rack. In the space they also had Adrienne Landau and Carlos Falchi - also not cheap. I walked out in 5 minutes. It wasn't like Eugenia Kim where I spent an hour trying to love something. Tomorrow is the last day if you want to check for discounts.

I had never heard of Grinnell designs but I'm a sucker for a jewelry sale. I went in and it was creepy. It seems they manufacture pieces for designers like Escada, Dannijo, Tory Burch...or I should say they used to. Everything was super old. I did buy a $30 Kara Ross for Tory Burch Evil Eye cuff just because it was cute - even if it was at least 5 years old. Kicking myself for not negotiating down the price because I probably could have. It did retail for $350ish once upon a time but still. I got the last white one but they had a couple more in brown. Don't worry, I'll take pics soon. It really is something.

And then there was the sale that turned my whole day around. It was at the Grinnell sale that I spotted a sign for Carolina Amato in the hallway. I had never heard of her but the sign said her hats, gloves, scarves are sold at Intermix and Shopbop so I figured it couldn't hurt. Bottom line, next sale I'll be there first day.
I've been obsessing over fingerless gloves and there were plenty in leather, wool, cashmere and fur starting at just $15.
I also got my pom pom hat fix - these cute wool ones were just $9 - or free with a cash purchase over $100! So glad I walked away at Eugenia Kim! I also took a pair of matching gloves for $9. Can you guess which color I took?
They had tons of gorgeous gloves, hats and scarves too. They had some mittens for just 3 for $10!
It was mostly for women but they had a few kids and men's pieces mixed in. They even had a doggie sweater for $19.
And now for what you really want to see....the sample table! Lots of hidden gems for $10-40!
Lucky for all of us the sale was extended thru Friday! If you still need holiday gifts she had plenty for under $20!
Linking her pieces online so you can see just how amazing this sale is!

After I walked over to Charlotte Olympia to get my free holiday gift. On her website there is a game - A Cracking Christmas Surprise.
