So this week was a little crazy. Sample sale season in effect and my feet are killing me. Note to self - wear sneakers next week. On Thursday I popped into Teri Jon to preview their sample sale that is taking place this Sunday & Monday, 11/20-21. (I posted details in my last post, here.) I was there for about 20 minutes when I heard that Charlotte Olympia had $100 kitty flats - so I literally ran in my Rockstuds over 10 blocks. Lucky I got there when I did because within minutes the line wrapped around the hotel floor. After scoring a single pair of cute flats I went downtown and crashed the private Balenciaga sample sale but walked out empty handed. At this point my next Bal has to be a blue/purple/green & have oversized hardware but they didn't have my combo :( Plus bags were still $350-450 which is a great price but only if it's exactly what I want. You can take a peek on my Facebook page at what I saw/got that day :)
On Friday I left my house at the crack of dawn to hit the Eddie Borgo sample sale at 8am. Got there at 7:30 and there was already 3 people ahead of me. Last round they had a huge box of $5 damages. This time nada. I picked up a couple pieces (prices went up...) and hung around for a couple hours before running over to Alexander Wang where I heard they had $150 bucket bags. I snapped up a couple bags at Wang and then started walking back to Borgo when I saw a text from a friend that they had put out a few damages right as I left. Great. Then I get a text from a friend at Wang that he had a couple mini Rockie bags for me so I ran back there. So the lesson is - even if you expect to hit a sale or two, you never know what will pop up or how far you'll have to run. Always wear comfortable flats!!
As for this coming week, stay home and shop online. That's where the deals are. Most places have rolled out their Black Friday deals early so keep an eye out on Slickdeals. If I see anything amazing, I'll add it to my Insta stories. I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you're not following me on Insta and watching my stories, you are missing my behind the scenes live shopping adventures. I do from time to time add my stories (like I did this week) to my Shoppinggalnyc Facebook page so they don't disappear - so be sure you're following me there too.
