So my plan was to get there at 7:30 AM, be one of the first 10 in the door (I was 20th as other people had the same idea and did not mind getting up early for this sale) rush straight to the Graham and Spencer area, (they also had a HUGE selection of Velvet which took up most of the floor) and bee line for the leather and faux fur.
Strategy paid off! I found 2 pieces I was looking for, plus 2 more that were great buys! Everything was about 1/4 (yes you read that right) of the retail price so I was stoked! I was in and out in less than 15 minutes flat with awesome stuff - thats the key to sample sales - research the line ahead of time, arrive early, have a plan and stick to it. Oh yeah - and maybe also have a $$ budget in mind.... ugh.
Here's what I scored:
Brown washed leather vest $110, faux fur vest + the jacket $135 ea and gray washed leather vest $110
