More Melissa Sample Sale Report!

We did indeed hit the sale again today as I really was hoping to get a nice comfy pair I could toss in my handbag for those days the heels got too much in the heat. Prices were not reduced, but there was plenty of stock to choose from and the staff -- as before -- were so helpful, even trying to find tiny pairs for the Punk Glam Princess (no luck though.)

I found these very comfy cute wedges in a light grey (def not white as they look in the pic):
Don't mind the ugly feet pic I walked MILES! And when I switched to these I was in heaven! I had thought flats would be best, but I just trip over my feet in them so these are perfect!

Now these I had been eying from the first visit. But they were a little too much for me to justify. However the owner came over and gave us big hugs welcoming us back introducing himself to my husband, and said pick what I wanted and he would give try to work something to my advantage. And he definitely did! I'm so happy with them that I found two pairs! What a lovely man! I found this last pair of metallic green in my size and am thrilled as I'm def a green person!

The second pair in metallic gold. They are def going to look hot this summer! So comfy too!

The last pair I so wanted, but they just didn't have them in my size. However my friend in Paris, the gorgeous Jeanne Suica (of Jeanne Suica Vintage) lucked out, as I got a deal for her on those too!

The owner was very happy that I had blogged about the event and said they did indeed get many people coming since then. He mentioned about putting me on a future VIP list, and he promised to always give me a great deal! Such a great shopping experience, especially when it comes to the cutthroat world of sample sales! And honestly, you couldn't have come across more helpful, pleasant and lovely staff. I highly recommend you hit it the next time you go! There was even a woman trying to find her way in when we got there and she kept coming up to me and thanking me for showing her where to go. Seriously great people there, staff and customers!

We later moved on to my other fav store... Alexander McQueen to see what was new in store. Omg, the beauties! My pennies will be saved for a few MUST have items. Zarinah, the amazingly stunning and sweet salesperson welcomed us with open arms and big hugs and kisses and wanted to know all about my dress' first outing. So much fun sharing with people who really appreciate wonderful clothing. And, even more extraordinary to find high-end sales people who not only love children but treat them with respect. Yes, I can't wait until my pennies are saved... I'm also excited as she said she just posted out a new catalog for me to plan my purchases!

The PGP had to stop into the Apple store as she's on a "I want an iPad" kick. Well maybe at some point but def not before Mom!

Dinner at the Diner on the corner of 14th by Old Homestead was cheesy-licious! Then we decided to brave Nordstom Rack. Ugh. I'll stick to the one up here in the burbs. I will say the shoe department is very well stocked with great high-end shoes at pretty good prices.

After that, we were exhausted and decided to call it a night. I needed a nice day of retail therapy as tomorrow will be rather somber due to the memorial for a dear friend who passed away.

Cheers!
