In Theory

Tuesday was a very special day for me. I attended my very first sample sale in New York. The brand I chose (yes there are sample sales of designer clothing/accessories every day) was nothing smaller Theory. I walked a couple blocks from Penn Station to one of those streets that has the cheesiest fabrics and accessories you can imagine and saw a crowd of mostly women lined up. Since we're experiencing the monsoon season here most women were in their office appropriate outfits and colorful wellies. We (my boyfriend and I) waited about 20min before the doorman let us in. Then we had to check in anything that could hide any possible bounty including jackets and the hunt could have started. The first thing I saw was a line for the cash registers and changing room but right around the corner there were racks and racks and racks of clothing. I was almost disappointed that everything was so organized, the racks were tagged with sizes and there was plenty of everything. I took several dresses and a blazer with me to the line for the changing room and stopped by the separate Theysken's Theory section. The changing space was a mess with racks to hang your stuff and not enough mirrors so women of all sizes and ages were showing their not so fit bodies in not so cute underwear. I was torn between a yellow ankle length dress (all dresses were discounted to $105!!) and Theysken's jacket (unfortunately Theysken's stuff was not as cheap) and guess what won...
Utery pro me bylo zasadni, protoze jsem sla na svoji prvni sample sale v New Yorku. Denne se tu poradaji slevy vzorku vsech moznych znacek, ale ja si vybrala Theory. Z Penn Station jsem usla par bloku a v jedne z tech ulic s nejkycovitejsimi doplnky a latkami se tvorila fronta prevazne zen v kancelarskem outfitu doplnenem holinkami (New York ma prave monzunove obdobi). Cekali jsme (David a ja) asi jen 20min a pak byli vpusteni dvernikem do druheho patra k satnam, kde jsme museli nechat vse, co by mohlo slouzit k propasovani nejakeho ulovku. A lov mohl zacit! Jenze on se zadny lov nekonal, po zavahani z fronty k pokladnam a zkusebnim kabinkam jsem videla jen more stendru s krasne vyrovnanym oblecenim a oznacenymi velikostmi. Vzala jsem si na vyzkouseni nekolik satu a sako a pri cekani okoukla Theysken's Theory sekci. Zkusebni prostor byla obrovska mistnost s mnoha stendry na odlozeni a nekolika zrcadly a zeny vsech tvaru a veku ukazovaly sva ne vzdy vysoustruovana tela ve vsemoznych kalhotkach. Nakonec jsem se rozhodovala mezi zlutymi saty ke kotnikum (vsechny saty slevneny na $109!) a Theysken's sackem. Copak jsem si nakonec asi odnesla...
