Event Recap: Gilt City Warehouse Sale

Although I spent the majority of last night glued to my TV screen (watching Sandy coverage and — when it became appropriate — Gossip Girl), I did spend some time recapping yet another successful trip to the annual Gilt City Warehouse Sale. Here’s a few highlights, including my new favorite “friend.”

… Yep, friend. A taupe Foley + Corinna Mid City tote.

Incidentally, I found her cast aside against the wall in an abandoned shoe box, which brings me to my main advice for sample sale shopping: Keep an open-mind. Finding that must-have item can seem impossible at a sample sale, and you’re much more likely to score a deal if you’re open-minded when browsing.
