Thanks to for the photo.

We caution those who aren’t used to clutches…While I love my bags I bought at this sample sale last year. I don’t find clutches to be the most practical living in NYC. I just need a way bigger bag usually. But I don’t pack light! Camera, phone, wallet, keys, lipsticks (gotta have more than 1), and various other accessories. For me, I often feel less glamorous trying to squeeze all my stuff into a tiny clutch. However, if you can pack light and wear these bags to somewhere you don’t need a million things, they are beautiful!

Sample Sale Alert!! Diane Von Furstenburg

New! Wonder Woman Collection

New! Wonder Woman Collection

Though we’re somewhat over her wrap dresses and think that much of her line is overpriced for what they are, the sample sale prices are pretty good. Watch out though. Seriously we thought we were going to have our arms chewed off by psychotic shoppers who wanted what we were carrying last year. Also at the last sale I was at for her, they cover up all the mirrors so bring a friend or be prepared to make some in line to find out what your picks look like on you. That is unless you want to wait in the 3 mile long line for the few dressing rooms they’ve got. (We made a SSBFF last year and she rocked. She was so adorb we ended up getting fro-yo and hitting up Bloomies together. Ahh the days of being a student and working from home). I mean who has time for those lines! Not most of us since you’ll probably be on your lunch break and have to hide your recently purchased DVF buys in your purse so your boss thinks you still need a raise for the new year. Or maybe that’s just us…

Dresses starting at $200, shirts for $80, and jackets for $150. (still KINDA STEEP)

Alice and Olivia Sample Sale NYC

Dec 7, 2008 Author: Katie Lara | Filed under: Fashion, Sales

Alice + Olivia is one of my personal faves! Such happy glitzy stuff, especially for the holidays y’all! For prices 1/2 off, why not! But I do caution you to check sites like Shopbop first and see how much this stuff actually costs right now to make sure you are actually getting a deal. There is nothing I hate more than checking online when I get home and finding the item I just bought costs less online! Don’t let this happen to you!

STARTS: Monday Dec. 8-11.

Monday: 10 am -6 pm

Tuesday: 10 am-7 pm

Wednesday: 10 am -6 pm

Thursday: 10 am-7 pm

Where it’s at: 261 W. 36th St., b/t 7th and 8th Ave- 2nd flr.

Huge Sale at Henri Bendel’s 30% off the entire store!

Dec 4, 2008 Author: Katie Lara | Filed under: Beauty, Fashion, Sales



So lately, every time we step into Bendel’s we are reminded of how poor we are. I know, lawyer? poor? It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Anyway, starting this Friday (tomorrow) from 6-9pm and Saturday December 6, between 8-11am save 30% on ANY purchase over $150.

Umm and have you been to Bendel’s? If you could find me an article of clothing less than that I’d be shocked (not literally, don’t email me all your genius finds that are less, it’s sarcasm, ladies)

Get it while the getting is good!

712 5th Avenue
New York, NY!

Mint Sample Sale- Started Today

Dec 2, 2008 Author: Katie Lara | Filed under: Fashion, Health, Sales

Mint Jodi Arnold

Save up to 70 percent off coats, dresses, and blouses.
Starts: Dec. 2-5. Tues.-Fri., 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
230 W. 39th St., b/t Seventh & Eighth Aves., 2nd flr.

Mint sample sales have some crazy bizotches running around! It’s in a tiny showroom with grabby hands but it’s worth it if you get your hands on a pretty sweater! As I always advise though, make sure it’s a good price and you’re not just getting excited that it’s discounted. Sometimes I get home to find that I just bought something for $200 that I never would have looked at in Bloomingdales for that price but because it was marked down from $500 I felt the urgency to have to have it. Fight the urge to buy just because it’s on sale–make sure you really like it! And when you do–go wild!
