Along with the New Year often comes the list of resolutions. Whether it’s to lose weight or learn Spanish, we all create a list of goals or wiser behaviors that we will pursue. One of mine is to spend my funds more wisely. Sure, I was pretty good about it in 2009, but this year, I’m really trying to make it a point to research my purchases and buy as much stuff as possible for less. My main area of focus? Shopping. It’s so easy to see a cute item, and just pick it up. No thoughts. No pondering. Just instinct. For that reason ALONE, I was beyond elated when I found out about Beta Boutique’s upcoming (and legendary) Sample Sale.
On January 30 and 31st, Beta Boutique is taking over a loft space in the River North neighborhood and packing it with fashions from local and national designers for a seriously discounted price. We’re talking discounts between 40-90% off of the sticker price with the highest price point will be $150 and the lowest item will cost you no more than $5. Yes, $5. So, for the price of your Starbucks fix, you could possibly leave the event with a great item to add to your wardrobe.
The brain behind Beta Boutique, Janice Moskoff, and her team have been taking over spaces and doing these sales for years after noticing that Chicago women didn’t have many options for sample sales, which occur frequently in New York and Los Angeles. After a six month hiatus, the ninth edition of the sale is back, and they are even bringing out merchandise for the guys. This is definitely a shoppers’ event that you don’t want to miss!
