New Sample Sale Site:

There's a new online sample sale site that's like the of fashion: Each sale features just one item at a time from one hot designer for a limited period of time. This could get really addictive, really fast! The current sale features DVB by Victoria Beckham Signature Bootcut Jeans in Black regularly $225, now just $44.76. I'm liking the savings, so let's give them some time to bring us better designers, shall we?

Marshalls Shoe Megashop: What Say You?

A couple months ago, Marshalls began opening these separate shoe boutiques within their stores, affectionately called the Marshalls Shoe Megashops. I've made a few quick trips to the one near my house, and I must say, they have definitely stepped up their game. Yesterday, I spent a good hour just trying on fabulous heels and admiring how long and lean my legs look in 5-inch heels, haha. Too bad I can barely walk in them.

Anyways, they had a great selection of party-worthy pumps by Jessica Simpson, Guess by Marciano, BCBGirls, Tahari, Nine West, Delman, Steve Madden, NYLA, and many more. The aisles were fairly clean and wide, there were plenty of mirrors, well-stocked boxes of nylon footies and places to sit. On this particular trip, I wasn't looking for anything in particular so I left the store empty handed, but I'll definitely be back again soon.

It's a bit premature to definitively vote or "yea" or "nay" on this latest venture from Marshalls, but I'd love to get your feedback. Have you been to a Shoe Megashop near you? Did you find any great deals?
