No matter how many elbows you've thrown at sample sales in your day, you haven't seen
crazy until you've attended Lauren Moffatt
's sample sales
. It only takes one time seeing grown women growling at each other for the last Peter Pan-collar blouse to question the sweetness of the whole "adorkable" look.
Why the frenzy? The genius of Moffatt's made-in-NYC clothes is that they're wearable, yet spin a seductive fantasy, too. In Moffatt's world of nautical stripes and retro-yet-modern miniskirts
, everyone's Anna Karina (or the wide-eyed ingenue of your choice).
If you long to dress like the mature schoolgirl in shrunken sweaters and A-line coats
, this is the collection for you. And for an added dose of precious, Moffatt's named each piece after characters from classic novels (Ponyboy sweater or Scout skirt, anyone?). Throw these on, and get ready to channel the Godard femme
(or, you know, the scrape-kneed Southern tomboy) of your dreams.
