One of my favorite benefits as a fashion designer is that time of year when sample sale hits. That wonderful time when our corporate closets are too full of inspirational and production samples that we need to purge them. Thus they end up in the glorious sample sale for all to purchase for their own closets at a fraction of the cost. Severe savings!
Corporate employees had the advantage of pre-shopping the sale, and boy did I have a ball with that. I reached for some fall wardrobe updates and spent only $40 in round 1. Round 2 I brought my mom for when the sale was open to the public. What did I scoop up? 5 pairs of various flats, a cloche, jewelry, and some beautiful gifting items!
I left that sale feeling accomplished and spent no more than $200 on everything. What a treat! What a great new fall wardrobe too!
Shopping Justice sample sales were fun, but I’d have to say shopping the talbots sample sale was even better because I could actually shop for me this time around. And the quality 👌🏻
