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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Spring not only means flowers and warmer weather, but it means Sample Sale season is here! Designers will be emptying out amazing items for prices that are beyond amazingly low. Up next this week is the Botkier Sample Sale, offering between 50-70% off handbags, shoes and wallets.
