Better than black friday and cyber monday is the few sick sample sales I’ve gone to the last couple of weeks. My scores are so epic that they put all other sales to shame. I’m talking both Tibi and Rag & Bone at fractions of retail cost..
Moral of the story? don’t get sucked into these huge sales, because most of the time the things that are on sale are not the things you want anyway. Follow your favorite designers on twitter, instagram and facebook to get the latest updates on their sample sales and other discounts. (that’s how I found out about both sample sales!)
Going on through the weekend is the Rag & Bone sample sale on 16th street between 9th and 10th avenue (right behind Chelsea Market) Worth the trip if you’re looking for some good every day sweaters, jeans and blazers. They were pretty much already out a lot of shoe sizes by the time I got there yesterday so that will be a little tough.
But i did pick up this little gem of a skirt which retails for $400 and I scored for $125. And this is what I will be rocking it with all winter long.
