Sample sales abound this time of year and there are plenty to fit the need of just about any shopper this week. My free time has been close to non-existent the past few weeks and so I really hope that it will slow down this week so I can make it to a sale or two.
If you are a bride-to-be, there is no better sale to look forward to than Brit designer Jenny Packham.
Other picks are the Adam Lippes for knitwear, Ter Et Bantine for luxe architectural womenswear, Veda for the perfect leather jacket, The New and W29 showroom for a variety of great labels. As always, if you shop a sale, let us know how it goes!
