Araks Sample Sale Notes

I miraculously dragged my butt out of bed super early this morning to make it to the Araks sample sale this morning downtown before work. There was no line, but the elevator in the building is broken so you'll have to climb 5 flights of stairs to make it up there.

As far as sample sales go, this was one of the most organized ones I've seen. There are the usual bins stuffed with camis, thongs, and swimwear that you'll need to dig through to find your size. Bras and fancier camis are on a rack and an associate will retrieve a size foe you.

What surprised me the most was how helpful some of the associates were. A lovely Araks employee helped me dig through the swimwear bins to help me find matching bottoms to the adorable floral-print top I clung onto, and she ran back and forth looking for bras that would match the color of the bottoms I found.

Even for us uptown girls, I think its worth a trek to check out. Bras $35-$65, thongs $15, swimwear $20 per piece (read $40 for a set), camis $20-$65, sample bras $15-$25, and there's more!
