sample sale | cc skye | 7.06.11 – 7.08.11

i’m a fan of cc skye’s jewelry, although it’s pretty expensive and overpriced in my opinion.  that’s why it’s nice they’re having a sample sale…the first i’ve seen!  handbags will be priced from $25-$75 while the jewelry will be $10-$50.

savage beauty extended to august 7th

the “alexander mcqueen: savage beauty” exhibit has been such a smash hit for the met that they’ve extended the end date from july 31st to august 7th.  and they’re also only opening the exhibit on mondays from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, when the rest of the museum is closed (for those willing to fork out an extra $50).

on opening day, about 5,100 people visited the exhibit and the museum was forced to suspend guided tours due to the crowd volume.  this was the most trafficked opening day for any exhibit in the museum’s history since it opened in 2005.

even with the extension, i doubt i’ll ever be able to the exhibit since i was just in nyc and just missed the opening.  thankfully, my friends bought the book for me for my birthday (thanks again!  this book’s actually sold out on amazon right now!).  i can’t wait to read it…you know, once i’m done studying and taking the gmat…

i haven’t taken it out of the shrink wrap yet but it’s pretty cool because it has a holographic cover.

also, alexander mcqueen has begun pre-saling for their first cut (40% off) of spring 2011 collection.  i already asked about the scarf i so desperately want, but since it’s limited edition, it won’t be included.  they said it’s only selling while the exhibit’s up and then any excess inventory after would be shipped to the met. =(  i’m considering getting it anyways but it’s so expensive…

save up to 65% off retail for men, women, kids, and home.  i personally love james perse…pricey basics, but the fabric’s so soft and the fit is so good.  i noticed last week that my white v-neck is going to develop holes, so this is perfect!  i’ll probably swing by saturday since i’ll be in the area anyways, and maybe stop by during my lunch break tomorrow.  i’m always excited when there’s a good sample sale in the o.c. area.

and don’t forget about these other hot sample sales this weekend–bcbg and isabella fiore!

this deal was stolen from travelzoo, so get more details on their page.  a little warning, they’re advertising it as 65% off but please keep in mind the fine print: “as much as 65% less than comparable hotels.”  but it’s still a good deal regardless, so take advantage before it ends february 25th.

travel deal | virgin airfare between la/sf + chicago $99

virgin’s having a great sale on non-stop flights between los angeles (lax) or san francisco (sfo) to chicago (ord) for $99!  this is one of the lowest fares i’ve seen and virgin is just plain awesome.  i’ve flown lax to sfo on virgin before and it’s the nicest airline i’ve ever been on and almost wished my flight was longer (almost).  so flying lax to ord would be quite nice…especially since i plan on going to chicago in the next few months to visit campuses for business school.  so i may take advantage of this deal, but it only applies for flights after may 25, which may be too late for me since i want to sit in on some classes.  this promotion ends february 21st, so grab a seat at virgin!
