It was so so nice to be in chilly New York for the weekend! It was a very short trip, but well worth it. I had been in dire need of a break from this November Miami heat wave. I would honestly say that half the fun was just going through my ‘winter clothes’ and putting actual layered looks together. I recently purchased this super yummy and fluffy faux fur vest ($35) from Nordstrom Rack and knew I had to bring it. I love vests because they are such great layering pieces with many styling options. I wore it with one of my favorite quirky vintage sweaters with an all- over panther print. I also recently found these skinny black jeans ($36) at Zara which fit like an absolute glove- if you’re in need of a black skinny, I highly recommend them!
So onto the highlight of my trip —> sample sales! As a true bargain addict, there is pretty much nothing I love more. For those of you that are not familiar, listen up! These sales happen when designers need to get rid of merchandise so they offer deep discounts (I’m talking at least 50% off) in order to make space for their new items. I went to the Rebecca Minkoff sale and one with various designers and was in discount-shopping heaven! I bought everything from a $50 pair of Rebecca Minkoff studded booties to a pair of 6397 jeans for $30 (originally $325). The only danger with these sales is that it’s hard to leave things behind when the prices are so good. The best sample sales are in New York so next time you’re in the city, do yourself a favor and look up what sample sales are going on! My go-to’s for sample sale info are racked.com and lazarshopping.com.
