every season i wait for the amazing dakota group sample sale. they offer current styles of really great brands for a discounted price! this very sale is where i've scored my pour la victoire booties, graham and spencer sleeveless trench, and matt and nat ikat print clutch.
a few dakota group sale tips : bring lots of cash (but there is an atm on premise if necessary), don't bring a purse, and wear shoes that you can easily slip in and out of.
the sale starts next thursday the 27th, doors open at 10 am. hope to see you there :)
