{photo via Bisnow}

Remember a few weeks ago, when I mentioned that I was determined to round out my below-the-belt options with a pair of shorts? Mission complete, thanks to the District Sample Sale on Tuesday! Bisnow happened to snap me just as I stumbled upon my new Loeffler Randall silk-wool-blend lovelies at the Hysteria booth. Minutes later, I scored a skirt for $25 from Sherman Pickey (they always have insane deals at the DSS, I’ve discovered). These shorts have that offhand-dressed-up-thing down, and I can already tell they’re going to change my life, sartorially speaking….

Here are some pix I snapped at the event:

When doubtful of exact location of DSS, look for the line.

Pretty drinks from Ping Pong Dim Sum.

Some accessories on stylish attendees that caught my eye:

And finally, if you know Barbara Martin, one of the organizers behind the event, this photo pretty much says it all:
