    There are sample sales, and then there are sample sales. But one bi-annual shopping extravaganza is so good, it doesn't even need any italics. Bambinos, it starts with a "W," ends with a "G," and rhymes with "bang." Ding, ding, ding—it's Alexander Wang!

Though we were pretty eyes wide open for that white box bag we've stalked since the runway, we couldn't help but notice just how head-turning the fashion was on our fellow Alex addicts. Cue our gallery of some of the coolest, wildest, and yes, weirdest street style we saw—when we weren't wrestling over that last Donna hobo bag.
