J and I checked out the Alexander Wang sale today at 10 (intended arrival time: 9:30 a.m. HAH). There was a short but quick line…be warned that they make you check EVERYTHING. We had the tiniest bags and they made us check them, ugh. Also, if you pay and try to go back in, they will make you check your bag too (even though they staple it up! Talk about security…though it was indeed a MADHOUSE in there and would have been easy to swipe stuff I suppose).
So around 10:30, it started getting SUPER crowded…I headed straight downstairs to check out the bags but saw two left. (Before we headed out around 11, I stopped by again and saw maybe 6 of the Emile burlap totes…the sales associate told me those were the last of the bags and they would be getting no more shipments. Who knows if she was right or not…but just fyi. So sad no more Roccos..).
Large Emile Tote in Burlap:
We both ended up purchasing only from the T line (and we kind of got too lazy to dig much through the boxes…though there was still a lot of merch left—lots of Ms and Ls…some Ss…XSs were few and far between. but still there if you’re patient…as G had warned us, be prepared to dig!).
J picked up a nice $35 dress with zippers on the side (not just a t-shirt material dress!), as well as a pair of knit black shorts (xs!) with a zipper up the left leg for $35—super cute!
I got a poly-rayon blend tank for $35…I totally had an XS version hanging there and someone stole it from right under my nose! (btw, impromptu changing area = nice, but lots of dudes walking around, so I def recommend sample sale outfit of leggings/bralette/tube/something)
Oh well, it’s cropped in the back, so maybe it’s better that I got small…what do you think? Can I wear it out like this, or should I just keep it casual with jeans?
Shoes: $10, H&M
Silk shorts: Alex Lane via Intermix sample sale, $40
Necklace: Forever 21, $7
Tomorrow’s the last day! I’d recommend getting there early to beat the rush. Prices have been reduced (T starts at $25? and RTW starts at $45…supposedly they may cut even more tomorrow. Sorry forgot to snap a pic of the reduced prices).
