Yesterday I was given the chance to preview the Lafayette 148 New York fall sample sale which begins this Thursday, November 13 and runs through Friday, November 14. When I walked off the elevator on the second floor of 148 Lafayette St. my jaw nearly hit the floor as my eyes took in the huge array of racks and clothing before me. There are literally racks and racks of clothing from which to chose. I didn’t know where to begin. Oh that’s not true, I began at the shearling coats and leather items.
Now don’t fret. I managed to find a ton of things to try on. In fact, it took a few trips to get my haul into the open fitting area. You can’t be afraid to try clothes on in front of other women when it comes to a sample sale. In fact, you should be thrilled if they provide a mirror. On the flip side, you can make fast friends and ask for opinions and feedback. It’s important to quickly go through your findings and place on specific places on racks (yes, maybe and hell no). Once you have it narrowed down…it gets really hard!
Here is what I left with…
