One of the highlights of my week was attending the annual Sassy City Chicks Sample Sale held here in Miami Design District at the Moore building on Thursday (Oct 6th, 2011). It was basically a big ole girl shopping extravaganza. They charged $10 for general entry and $30 for VIP entry (free cocktails included and a gift bag). The building was a great venue; very ‘design-district-architectural-all white-everything’. There were three floors of pop-up shops of local boutiques and other female-geared merchants (jewelery, salons, local hand-crafted items etc) from all over the city. The event is supposed to feature sample sale prices, but I found that there many regularly priced items; overall prices ranged from $20 to $300+. I found out about it a bit late so I only had about 2 hours to spend there and it really wasn’t enough time! Nonetheless, I found a pair of bright orange/coral colored skinny jeans (from a local vendor – $68) and a super cute floral print dress (from a local boutique- $30 originally priced at $125!). Highlights: I thought this was a great one-stop-shop kinda-way to get to know the multitude of local boutiques that Miami has to offer. Downfalls: It got a bit crowded and it became difficult to browse since the pop-up shops are only so big (get there early). Overall: I recommend checking it out! This was my first time going to this event and I would definitely round up some girls and go again next year (check out the website for events in other cities).
