What I Wore – The District Sample Sale Edition

In a truly bizarre turn of events my September rivals that of any full time socialite. I have no idea who this person is with a full dance card this month, especially since I am a huge proponent of staying in. But I do plan to revel in this fleeting month of revelry and playing peacock and thus you will see more than my typical number of What I Wore posts.    

This week was the District Sample Sale, an all-volunteer organization with 100% of profits donated this year to the Sitar Arts Center. The Sitar Arts Center fosters personal and artistic growth through the visual, performing and digital arts, offering after-school, weekend and summer classes to more than 800 children and youth each year, 80% of whom come from low-income households.

I attended my very first District Sample Sale earlier this week with my big sis. I realize I am a bit late to this game but I still had a ton of fun! I arrived in Uber style, was fitted with my gold VIP bracelet and descended in to the fray that was the DSS hosted in the old Filene’s Basement at Mazza Gallerie.

A few hours later I emerged with a divine cobalt blue DVF blouse, a sensous olive silk DVF blouse, an exquisitely tailored navy DVF blazer and a fun Rachel Roy shift dress that will pair brilliantly with my riding boots this fall and winter. Don’t worry, you will definitely get to see each piece in a future WIW post!!

With a very generous VIP swag bag and our exciting purchases in hand, big sis and I headed off to Cactus Cantina to restore our electrolytes with chips and guac!!
