When I read about the street style snaps Refinery 29 had taken outside of the Alexander Wang Sample Sale, I never thought I would get photographed myself! I went there on Friday, a day after the sale started, and it was not too crazy at all. Jennine gave me the tip that the line was not so bad, and I managed to get in an out within half an hour. Part of the reason it was not crazy-town was probably due to the fact that the handbags and shoes were sold out, but I did manage to score the tank version of this sweater, which I love!
While outside, Karl, who shoots the Street Style shoots for the Metro Newspaper and Swagger360, asked to take my photo. Of course, I said yes, tried to maintain my balance while posing on cobblestones in wedges, and did my best to look relaxed and not get runover by a cab. Of course, this made my day! Thank you, Karl!

Along with her collection, Samantha has brought a few select vintage pieces from her collection, including amazing silk high-waisted Christian Dior shorts she bought in Paris. If that's not enough to get you to Fort Greene, there is also cider and gingerbread cookies to warm you right up!
Another thing I found out about this Brooklyn designer while chatting it up with her today: all her clothes are eco-friendly! As she pointed out - "My clothes reflect my lifestyle. If I eat organic, why wouldn't I use organic materials for my clothes?". So hop on over and grab some organic silk dresses and organic wool jumpsuits with wool from Vermont. A bonus: all her clothes are made right here in New York City!
