Paul Smith is having their annual Friends & Family sample sale; this is cause for much merriment. It runs for two glorious, discount-filled days and let me tell you… it’s been amazing! As soon as I walked in, I was blown away by rack after rack of fabulous garments from this great English designer. So many colors and textures and the shoes… oh God… the shoes.

I scored a pretty sweet haul, mostly accessories and this lovely, lovely bandeau bathing suit that I seriously coveted last year. Here’s the first run – this great floppy straw hat and a very intensely yellow belt! When paired with my T by Alexander Wang dress, I totally feel like a spy, a woman of mystery, if you will.
