Real talk for a second: it’s nice to have nice clothes. As a sartorially-inclined woman, although I can get down with thrift and consignment stores, there’s no better feeling than walking down the street in an expensive pair of shoes with name recognition. Maybe it’s because every New York City girl really does want to feel like Carrie Bradshaw every now-and-again (don’t judge, I’ve seen every episode). Maybe it’s because an ex-tweenage Blink 182 fan can only pretend not to like Hollister so many times before she wants to buy a $40 t-shirt for herself, goddamnit! No matter what the reason may be, now that I’m a grown-ass woman who knows how to budget (eat Ramen for dinner, use that as an excuse to go shopping 3 times a week), it feels good to spend a bit of my hard-earned cash on pretty designer things. But do you think I’m going to pay $300 dollars for a dress I’ll probably be sick of next summer? HELL NAW. And that’s where sample sales come in.
This sample sale season, I’ve been on top of my overstock game. I’m waking up early to go to sketchy warehouses. I’m hitting up a sale in the morning, and another at my lunch break. I’m waking up early, which I do for absolutely nothing else. I’m proud of what I’ve scored so far, so watch me talk about sample sales and see what I’ve bought in the video below.
