“O’, sample sale. O’, sample sale. How lovely are thou markdowns.”
(To the tune of O’ Christmas Tree, because I’m not sure why.)
New York City rocks. I mean, not that that’s news. But, I’m discovering cool things about it every single day. Would you ever find a sample sale of Dolce and Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Gucci galore in Sweet Home Alabama? Not that I don’t love ya…Roll Tide. But really, there’s nothing more exciting than stumbling upon a small doorstep in Soho that reads those two magical words: sample sale. Except, in my case, let’s talk about a place that doesn’t stop you from taking a picture of the most fabulous vintage Louis Vuitton blazer you’ve ever seen because it’s “the rules”. Really. This happened. Actually.
Anyways, some friends and I stumbled upon a slightly more affordable sample sale, including selections from Anthropologie and a few other designers who I then was unfamiliar with. Shuffling through the racks of clothing, I found this little number featured on the blog today from Zoe Karssen, a designer who is new to me! I sincerely wish I wasn’t so drawn to cozy, loose fitting clothing, but this brand has some serious #IWokeUpLikeThis potential. Check out the whole line here!
Now, I’m not one to splurge on a $130 sweatshirt, but it looks like these are on sale a lot (like mine definitely was)! Take a gander at the exact one I’m wearing in this post here!
This particular sweatshirt is not just a sweatshirt, mind you. It’s actually made out of something that feels like a towel on the inside (fashion majors, help me out here…) so it is absolutely perfect for a day lounging on the beach! Lookie there. I just saved you from lugging an actual towel around! Fashion meets function.
This past weekend, some friends and I traveled down to Brighton Beach and Coney Island. Bless the subway, it was practically free. So, please enjoy some shots of our day of fun, and some more fabulous accents to the outfit!
Kristalize, you’ve done it again. I. Am. So. Obsessed. With. This. Jewelry. *sassy clapping between each word* Honestly, it is all so well made and stylish that it just makes me grin from ear to ear when I get a package in from them! Beads + druzy + tassels = A very happy Wesley.
The necklace I’m wearing is called the Victoria, and you can shop it by clicking this link!
Bracelets made for stacking are bae, and it’s quite convenient that each of the bracelets in this collection are designed to all look AMAZING together. Meaning you can never have too many…right? Permission to splurge, granted. The designer is constantly updating the collection with new beads and patterns to add to your possibly never-ending collection. The details of my stack are below:
Oh, and also, I held a giant snake.
While I can’t guarantee giant snakes will be making a regular appearance on the blog, I do hope you’ll check back weekly to see some of my other NYC adventures! Know of any must-see attractions in the city? Leave a comment below so I can add it to my to-do list!
