nykeiko shops: One of those... [AllKnitwear, Of A Kind]

These are one of those hats where people would ask...hey, where did ya get that? So funky cool. I don't know if it's for me but I love the patterns. This one is from Of A Kind. Get it before they sell out forever!

nykeiko shops: Joie, Equipment & Current/Elliott sample sale [December 2014 NYC Sample Sale]

See my review about the sale here on Racked NY.

Joie raccoon sweater $60
I came out empty handed just because I've already purchased a few items I still wear from previous sales. But sometimes it's good to wait for the markdowns. On the last day of the sale last time, those Current/Elliott jeans were as low as $25 a pop which I totally took advantage. Dave even picked himself up a pair (which he hasn't worn yet). Too skinny says his parents! But who listens to their parents anyway (I do!..sometimes).

nykeiko plays: The North Face Speaker Series- Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright in Sufferfest2 [NYC]

If you don't know who Alex Honnold is, watch this and this. He is one of my husband's idol and I have never seen him so excited about meeting anyone before. Alex Honnold is definitely a celebrity in our books even though he's not known by many people (but definitely a superstar in the climbing community.) Not that I'm a climbing fanatic or anything but I just know who the awesome people are out there. I've had my share of blind stares when I talk about this guy. Keep reading to see pictures of me holding his hands ...

#TBT=My #ThrowbackTravels #32: Perito Moreno glacier, Argentina

Hiking the Perito Moreno Glacier

If I had a bucket list, then hiking a glacier would be on it and then I could cross it off!

Another TBT of the glacier here.

nykeiko shops: Peek inside Alexander Wang's sample sale + price lists [December 2014 NYC Sample Sale]

Alexander Wang 'Parental Advisory' sweater on sale for $400
A peek inside Alexander Wang's sample sale. I got myself two bras from the clearance racks ($10) which are the same ones I got from the last sample sale. One for me and one for my sister who told me if I ever come across them again, to get her more. At $10, I didn't hesitate although I only found one small bra and most were extra small or large.

The crowd at the VIP event was relentless and the go-to section is where the bags are at. Just like always. A rainbow of bright colored Rocco bags line the table and lots of evening clutches were being picked up quickly. I don't really like the Roccos but the lilac bags with rose gold hardware were not too bad. Small leather goods start at $75, $150 for clutches, $250 for small bags, $300 for medium and $350 for large bags.

To take a look at what else was offered and price lists, keep reading!
