Spring Sample Sale Season

It's time for the sample sale blinders again. Do not go to these site's pages if you want to save any money this month:

NY Mag Shopping

Refinery 29 Hot Sales

There are various sites that have the know on NYC sample sales but I limit myself to only two information sources because of website loyalty and lack of self control.

One sale that I haven't heard a peep about yet is Sigerson Morrison. It's usually around April 28th, which is today by chance. Let me know if you hear anything.

Also, I am currently sitting at my desk sulking about missing the Maria Zero Cornejo Sample sale today. How cruel of them- 1 day sale from 11 am till 5 pm. Have you no heart? I understand why this Chilean designer chose such exclusive times, but it is still disappointing.

4/28 Womenswear and shoes are up to 80 percent off at the Zero + Maria Cornejo and Repetto sample sale. The grass-print Mara skirt is $75 (originally $389), the silk-charmeuse Nella dress is $150 (originally $499), and the twill Simple Jenga pant is $75 (originally $467). More than 10 years worth of archive samples start at $50. 84 Wooster St., nr. Spring St., sixth fl. (212-925-3849); Th (11–5). (excerpt from

I'm not sure what the Jenga pant is but I'm sad I won't get to find out. Below is a shearling jacket by Maria Zero Cornejo that I tried on this winter. It's so beautiful and a unique twist on a classic piece.

I wish I was little bit taller,

I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
