Sale Saturday: A Belated Report

Well, kids, I made it down to the Dolce Vita sample sale last weekend. I was a couple days too late for shoes, I guess, because there was nary a 7.5 to be seen. I fared a little better at the clothing racks, however, where everything was $25 or two for $40. I'm pretty excited about my awesome drapey royal blue dress, which everyone was trying on and advising each other about. I was debating between the small and the medium and was given the sound counsel to go with the small, because it's "already such a loose style." I wish I had a picture of it, but I can't find it anywhere online. It's this color though, but is way smoother:



Dolce Vita "Paper Bag" dress, $275.



This one's pretty cool too: the Dolce Vita "Leslie" dress, $209.

I also got a jersey tie cardigan, since I've been looking for cardigans for this "transitional" weather. Kinda boring but cheap and everyday-wearable. As I was checking out the girl taking money was loudly telling a story about Michelle Trachtenberg's visit the other day, and how her mom tried to get them to reduce the shoe prices from $25 to $15 for her. Famous people and their entitled entourages: still tacky!

Then I went to Puck Fair and had a few delicious beers with some friends I see all too rarely.



Hoegarden, $6 a pint. (Shouldn't daytime be happy hour?)

Then I headed up to the Union Square farmer's market and bought some gorgeous snapdragons.



Snapdragons, $10 a bunch.

Next I decided to check out Filene's Basement since it was right there, and lo and behold, bought two pairs of jeans. Go figure.



Earnest Sewn "Garbo" jeans, $59.99 at Filene's.





Plus a pair of Marithe + Francois Girbaud straight legs with thick topstitching and asymmetrical hem for $39.99. Excuse the extreme butt close-up.

THEN I popped into Payless in search of the fabulous Jill kitten heel in black, which is sold out everywhere, it seems (if you see it in size 8, get it for me! I have it in Berry and it was my go-to fall shoe). Instead the salesman told me they had a lot of shoes for $5 and were also doing a BOGO half-off sale, so I got these two Abaete pairs for a cool $7.50.



Abaete for Payless "Betty" ankle-wrap sandal in baby blue, $19.99 online.



Abaete for Payless "Harlow" pump, $19.99 online. ($2.50 in store!)

I can only hope this coming Saturday is as fun!
