sampling as seen on tv.



due to some horrible experiences with past sample sales ( thanks to urban outfitters )
i had pretty much sworn off going to any ever again.
but a soft 2 hour preview this evening at the oak bond location had me running to an atm.
from 6 - 8 the lower level was open and by the time i got there at 6:20 there was already madness.
i met up with zana and needless to say the two
of us combined did some pretty detrimental damage.

i highly suggest - HIGHLY SUGGEST - if you have a minute to spare this weekend,
you head to the bond street store to check it out.
this is one sample sale completely worth going to.






and on a side note :


earlier today i was in bed bath and beyond ,
when this giant fucking wall of green boxes with that little as seen on tv icon caught my eye. wonder hanger.
now in any other situation i would have kept walking BUT new york closet space is an issue
and it just so happens that mine looks like it threw up and i could use some serious help downsizing space.
thought id give it a shot-
i really wasn't expecting it to be a miracle but more or less a little improvement.

HOLY.
SHIT.

these are no joke.
yes , im being completely serious.
i must be getting old when i'm this excited over closet space.
but trust - you'll thank me later.

I use these (in black): http://www.amazon.com/Karen-Rhodes-Anti-Slip-Velvet-Hangers/dp/B001NGP6SG

They are seriously the jam, for the rest of your space, they take up about 1/3 the space of a plastic hanger! My closet is STUFFED but organized thanks to these amazing things.

I am addicted to sample sales, as you can find so many items there, which are not sold in stores. I am a bit envious....

I guess I'm getting old too. as soon as the hangers popped onto the screen it was only "ooo's" and "ahhhs" from this girl.
