Sample Sale Madness Ensues

9 Nov

By Whitney

Hello, New Yorkers.  November is sample sale season and it has been a bananas month.  Apparently the line at YSL was three hours long a couple of weeks ago and the private Manolo sale even evoked my favorite NYTimes writer to dedicate one of her biweekly columns to the event.  Yesterday I took my lunch break and ran over to the Kara Ross sample sale (in their gorgeous pure white office!) to get one of her to-die-for cuffs that Lauren introduced me to.  I am obsessed with them but not their $300+ price tag.

For $95, I got the cuff in a peachy pink lizard and two really cool rings for $60.  One is a present for my sister so I hope she doesn’t read this before I see her tonight.

Some highlights of our favorite designers and other events to note for those who are fortunate enough to live in this fantastic city:
