When I got to the sale and saw that the atmosphere was intimate, I was relieved. I just don't have it in me to fight off bitches while I shop! Here are the highlights:
Pretty prints are imperative for summer!
And here we have the uber-talented designers, Leong and Philip. When Philip exclaimed, "We don't design for tall, skinny rich girls!" I wanted to give him a big fat slobbery kiss. And even though tall skinny rich girls do wear their clothing, it was really cool to know that they get inspiration from their friends--real people--and keep different body types in mind when they design.
The guys were so cool and down-to-earth and entertained all of my generic, "So how did you get started in the industry?" type questions. At one point Leong was lost for words, so he just blurted out, "You can never have too many hats, gloves or shoes!" I later learned he was quoting Patsy from the UK television show, Absolutely Fabulous. Apparently she says this when she's being interviewed and doesn't know what else to say. I think I'll use this tactic next time someone asks me what I DO. The show sounds like a riot--maybe I can convince my bf to watch it with me instead of Peep Show. Maybe? An.Y.way. Back to the clothes!
There were some vintage pieces at the sale too. Hello amazing, sparkly, sequin caplet!
And this YSL dress was acquired by one of their model friends, Grace Kelsey. Love. (Grace has been on Project Runway! Who watched the finale last night?!)
And when Philip asked me if I wanted to pick out a gift for myself I almost passed out. Something better than FREE soup and FREE Grey Goose? Is it possible? Yes, friends, it is. This top was my favorite piece, and I was beyond thrilled when I tried it on and loved the fit, too. I think I'm going to wear it tonight, only with dressier jeans and a blazer, perhaps. Watch out, Lexington, here I come!
So tell me: Have you ever been to a sample sale? What was your experience? And what's on your must-have list this summer?!
