The award for the Instagram close-up of the day goes to 260SampleSale, for this glitzy embellishment shot of a dress at the Badgley Mischka sample sale. (And runner-up goes to this cocktail dress.) As a reminder, the sale ends Sunday; let us know in the comments if you've scored anything good within the past few days. [260SampleSale]
