nykeiko shops: James Perse Sample Sale [May 2015 NYC Sample Sale]

James Perse Sample Sale
Um yea..another sample sale post. I hit up two sales in one day. Consequence? I did more than 10,000 steps on my iPhone's health monitor yesterday. After visiting Chloé 's crazy sale in the afternoon, the James Perse VIP preview in the evening was so eerily calm. Did everyone end up at Chloé ? Anyway, here's my review of the James Perse sample sale on Racked NY. I have more than enough basics so I came out empty handed. I did like all the striped tees and dresses though but I really do have enough comfy wear. I was most interested in the accessories and home goods which was no where to be found. There are rumors of another James Perse sample sale next week so I'll keep my fingers crossed for that one!

nykeiko shops: Chloé Sample Sale [May 2015 NYC Sample Sale]


Chloe sample sale
So I decided to check out the Chloé sample sale when my husband got an invite to RSVP for the sale via C21 edition's mailing list. I was surprised when he forwarded it to me because I was like, how did you get this and not me? But turns out anyone on the mailing list got it except me cuz I didn't sign up. The sale was originally announced to start on Tuesday May 19th (8 AM to 9 PM) and I thought hmm I could do an 8 AM shopping spree before work no problem. My friend who was visiting from out of town agreed to be my shopping partner and was going to join me. More motivated to wake up at 6 AM for sure. His motivation was getting someone his bf wants.

#TBT=#MyThrowbackTravels: Aruba!


Day after my birthday in 2010.

Though I hate sand in my bikini bottom, I would do anything to get sand in my bikini bottom right now.

nykeiko shops: Elizabeth and James Sample Sale [May 2015 NYC Sample Sale]



Elizabeth and James sample sale
I reported (and shopped) the Elizabeth and James sample sale early this week. Here's my report on Racked. I tried on a few sample pieces since I was a fan of the prices. I tried on a sample black feathered slip dress ($50), a sample sweater ($30), textile shorts and a dress. I finally walked out with a long wool vest for $15! It didn't have the label's tag so I'm not 100% it's from E&J but I don't care. Too bad I can't wear this until next Fall!
