Hispanic Heritage Month, The Charlotte Olympia
Sample Sale, & Surprise for Brides… A Holy Trinity?
We salute you; you survived New York Fashion Week. Don’t worry—you didn’t have to play an active role in it in order to be considered a “survivor.” Simply navigating the countless emails you received (The Stylish City was “blessed” with thousands this year) that recommend NYFW essentials you “will be lost without” during the marathon fashion show… Like Lubriderm, apparently. Um, really? However, whether or not you were caught clapping for Zac Posen’s capsule collection with dry (gasp, Lubriderm-less) hands, the future of the show doesn’t look bright. Even a quick Google search results in multiple articles describing the doom and gloom of NYFW’s future; The Exodus from New York and Has Backstage Beauty Lost Its Gloss? are particularly insightful. Nonetheless, we’re hoping it just ain’t so.
But if NYFW is temporarily on the back-burner, that is all the more reason to press forward. Fashion-forward. Take advantage of these post-NYFW opportunities to reinforce a stitch or two in the New York fashion scene. You can start by going where TSC goes. Last week, we went to the La Perla sample sale and shared with you what pajamas we wear when we write articles. (Spoiler alert: not La Perla.)
This week, we’re heading to the Charlotte Olympia sample sale, of course. Putting your best foot forward becomes impossible when both feet are
Charlotte-Olympia-clad; with her signature candy-crisp color and precise craftsmanship, both feet will be the best one.
Here’s another opportunity if you’re a bride-to-be… or if you’re not, I guess. Hey, everyone has the right to invest in a gorgeous wedding gown—no spouse necessary. Either way, saying yes to the dress has never been easier than at the Randi Rahm sample sale.
And the event to make next week the trifecta of happenings? It’s the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month, which lasts through October 15th. While not strictly fashion-related, it is an opportunity to celebrate hispanic contributions to the fashion world (thank you, Oscar de la Renta and Manolo Blahnik), as well as TSC’s strong Hispanic heritage.
NYFW aside, the fashion passion is always alive here at TSC. So don’t be selfish, feed this fire by letting us know if there’s something we must share. Cheers!

Miami Needs Help- How to (Wisely) Give Back
If you have been following us for a while, you might have suspected we’re obsessed with sample sales, style and fashion. And while we won’t deny this, in the wake of the recent hurricanes we feel it’s time to talk about ways to give back.
What follows is a quick and easy list of organizations we have reviewed, who have feet on the ground in southern Florida and could use our help.
Their mission is to improve the health and lives affected by poverty and emergency. Their website clearly shows where the aid goes.
State of Florida’s official private fund was established to assist Florida’s communities as they respond to and recover during times of emergency or disaster.
Food for the Poor helps communities in the path of Hurricane Irma to rebuild and heal. Over 95% of your donation goes directly into food for those who need it most.
Hope South Florida is a 501c3 Christian-based non-profit that provides crisis and re-housing programs in the wake of Irma.
Giving Children Hope works closely with their partners to stage and deliver immediate emergency response resources for Irma-impacted areas in Florida and the Caribbean.
Humans aren’t the only creatures affected by Hurricane Irma. Thousands of pets are being displaced by Irma and The Humane Society provides food and shelter.
In this case, and every time you are ready to donate for a worthy cause, make sure that the organization is trustworthy. We use the Charity Navigator and their objective ratings to find charities we can trust and support. Furthermore, we make sure the charity is directly involved in the cause we want to support, in this case the victims of hurricane Irma.
