LuLu Frost Sample Sale

Hey Kuties if you’re anything like me you love a great jewel. I tend to mix-n-match the same pieces over and over again- a few investment pieces (my hermes click clack bracelets) with less expensive pieces (forever 21 statement necklaces)  that I interchange with each day’s outfit.
One investment piece  I’ve been wanting to add to my collection is Lulu Frost. Her designs blend old world charm with modern day glam, spinning tut some hella chi  jewels. She’s been around for years and has even done a collaborations with J.Crew-a testimony to the kind of price tag attached to her baubles.

Enter the fashion Gods with a a sample sale to save my wallets.  And this isnt one of those NYC only sample sale. You can visit in studio or  go online and check out the sample sale happening this week.  Pieces are suppose to be  40-80% off jewelry and I’m hoping that the right piece with the right price will avail itself.

Here are the details:
Tuesday, June 17 -Thursday, June 19
11am—8pm
12 E. 20th St between Fifth Ave and Broadway, 2nd Fl (no phone)
