8/1 Sample Sales: Matisse, French Connection, Missoni

No joke – one of the comfiest pairs of sandals I’ve ever owned was a pair of Coconuts by Matisse.  The sandals were by no means expensive to begin with, and I wore them into the ground, thereby ensuring I truly got my money’s worth.  I can’t wait to check out this 70% off sale at Beyond the Rack to see if I can get a new pair to replace those that are dearly departed.
