An international magazine hosted a sample sale to get rid of all of the items they bought for photo shoots. Once I spoke with the super sweet staff member, I understood what was flying. That background explained why there were so many random one-of-a-kind pieces at this sale. I spotted 2 Zimmerman dresses for $199 each, a Club Monaco sale for $30, a Sonia Rykiel top for $20.
There were Zara and H&M items for $5-$10, and fashion earrings for $15-$50. There was even a pair of Erdem, Delce & Gabbana sunglasses for $150 each. Was the clothing worn? Not exactly 2nd hand, but yes, it was worn to shoots. For someone who wants fresh out of the bag items, this was not the right sale.
For someone who enjoys the hunt, and sorting through 20 items to find the perfect deal, this deal was thrilling. It’s over now, but next time the sale is announced – I’m in.
