A entire feeling of joy and excitement just came over me when I realized that the next round of Sample Sale season will be when Vlad and I live in NYC. That means I won’t have to post about these Sample Sales that I am dying to go to but can’t, rather I can bring you updated posts a-la-Racked style with photos and a play-by-play of the event.

One of the sample sales that is much awaited by PurseBlog and PurseForum members is Rebecca Minkoff‘s. Because of her huge PurseForum fan base, Rebecca continues to open up a VIP night for the members. The lines from what I have heard are long but the loot is good. Here are both sample sale invites: the one for the VIP night (you all) and the one for the public (if you cannot make VIP night). Make sure to pop over to PurseForum then to chat with other Minkettes about the sample sale madness! (more…)

What better way to unwind after a long day of final exams than to go shopping? I know. It’s hard to beat. I headed downtown to the Botkier Sample Sale to celebrate another year of college successfully finished. I had strict orders from my mother for what she wanted, and I also planned to get something for my grandmother, who’s currently visiting from Mexico. As for me, I needed to purchase my first Botkier, and I was completely besotted with the Dion Satchel in chamois lambskin. (more…)

It truly is Sample Sale time! Just for PurseBlog and PurseForum members, Botkier is inviting you to their special Friends and Family night. Meaning you are invited before everyone else is, that is how much Botkier loves you all! If you can make it, don’t miss it and make sure to tell them you are from PB and tPF. Click on the image for a larger version so you can read all of the details.

Also, keep checking back to PurseBlog for an update on the exclusive PurseBlog + Botkier Handbag. We will be bringing you very exciting news on this gorgeous bag and one-of-a-kind collaboration soon!

I would like to express my frustration a little bit about not living in NYC right now. Two words: Sample Sales. Sample Sales give you the opportunity to score such incredible deals it seems not right. One Sample Sale that I would love to attend is Devi Kroell‘s. Not only is she a talented designer, but also an amazing person. Click on the invite for details about the sample sale (up to 90% off!!).

Luckily, Vlad and I are moving to NYC in August, so I will not need to lament any longer.

Rebecca Minkoff Online Sample Sale

You asked for it and Rebecca Minkoff complied. Really, what else could our devoted Minkettes ask for? (I know you all can think of something!). Rebecca Minkoff is actually getting married almost as we speak. Congratulation to Rebecca! A great way to celebrate is with her online sample sale. So maybe you didn’t make it to NYC, LA, SF, or DC, but we can all attend the online sample sale. I will be there, with my jammies on, ready to click if needed! The sale starts tonight at 9 P.M EST and you all are known to take down the Rebecca Minkoff site and servers. Who is ready to click away? After you buy, make sure to share what you get with the large group of Minkettes on tPF on the Sample Sale Thread!

Rebecca Minkoff DC Sample Sale

I can guarantee you all of one thing: designers and corporate offices have continued to realize the pull that the online realm has. One such example is with Rebecca Minkoff, a designer that we have covered as she started her company through present day, where her bags are known upon first glance and celebrities can not put them down. I don’t doubt that she owes much of her success to the online realm and her fans who have gathered to talk about her bags. The Rebecca Minkoff subforum on Purse Forum leads the web in the number one place to chat about all bags from this designer. And after the success of her other sample sales, the group of gals asked for another sample sale. And Rebecca Minkoff complied.

Tomorrow is the Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale in Washington, DC. If you are in the area, you must check it out tomorrow!

Devi Kroell Sample Sale

Have you missed Vlad and I? We are totally MIA while on vacation right now and loving it. Goodbye internet, hello peace and quiet. It is odd, but we are loving it. But I feel an itch. An itch to shop. And shopping in Columbus, Ohio is nothing like shopping in South Florida and nothing like braving the NYC sample sales. I am yearning to be in NYC for Sample Sale season. The next Sample Sale we are missing but some of you must attend if from Devi Kroell. Beginning tomorrow, the Devi Kroell sample sale will begin where you are sure to spot amazing exotic bags, shoes, and accessories.
