The J. Crew sample sale was advertised as the solution to "what am I going to wear tomorrow." Well let me tell you, I still have don't have the solution to that. The J. crew sample sale is always a hit or miss. Well this time it was a miss. Lots of damaged and wrinkled items that are rejects from previous seasons.
Some items look familiar. I saw a dress and a pair of collection pumps I bought two years ago! Two months ago when I was in their b+m store, I wanted to purchase a floral tank top but they did not have it in my size. I saw it here but it was more expensive.
I always come back the last day when it's additionally 50% off but this year I'm seriously considering skipping!
The Modo Eyewear sample sale is one I eagerly look forward to. It's a fun, friendly experience. Staff members who work in the showroom help out at this sale. They become your friends, giving their honest opinion of the style and the fit.
I waited for this sale to add some new looks to my shades collection. Where else can you get a $320 Derek Lam sunglasses for $20? I came out with 3 new pairs. I was deciding which one to wear out. The staff member checking my purchase out convinced me to go with my most fashion forward pick, telling me, "You're in Soho, You can wear it!"
