Stopped by the Theysken’s Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale on Saturday morning to a completely serene shopping experience. Maybe because it was just after 11am and people weren’t awake yet for some to shop? The sale was neat and spacious with row upon row of orderly racks. There were only about 3 other shoppers perusing the racks as I admired the gorgeous clothing and shoes by Olivier Theyskens. My attention first was to the shoe area where Boots and Pumps are going for $149 a pop and flats are $99. Sizes ranged from 35.5 to 40 with the majority of sizes being in the 37-39 range. My particular fave were the velvet wedges and the X-strap wedges seen so prominently on the debut runway. If you are a size 35 like myself you wan’t have any luck in the shoe area.
