Araks Sample Sale – Camis & Undies Start at $10

Araks-Sample Sale

Being a huge fan of the NYC-based brand, Araks, I always try to make time to check out the label’s seasonal sample sales.  It’s great that they open early (8:30am) on the first day of the sale, which gives working girls like me an opportunity to shop before getting into the office.

On Friday, Fashionable Femme Jen stumbled on the sale.  The brand’s playful designs gave her a much-needed distraction after finishing a busy week at work. Here’s her report:

As I walk home after an exhausting work-week, a big red “Sample Sale 70% off” sign catches my eye. Curiosity—and a bright pink romper with bright yellow bananas—gets the best of me. Inside, I’m greeted by a mannequin in sushi PJ’s and hundreds of pairs of pleasantly patterned Pull-In underwear, sleepwear and swimwear. Despite heavy fatigue, I can’t help but smile.
