This isn’t out first time at the Alex and Trixie and Love Sam sample sale. We noticed prices tripled, at least! We’re thinking they got smart and figured they can charge customers more. That’s a really shady thing to do to your loyal fan base.
If your a lover of this Aussie-based brand, it’s worth the price increase. There was a ton of beautiful clothing. Alex and Trixi is known for their gorgeous silk summer pieces. Alex and Trixie pieces are more casual, so It’s great for everyday use. Love Sam had rockin’ beachwear – just add beach wave hair! Love Sam also featured some denim and other casual pieces. They were priced lower than Alex and Trixie. You will probably score something better there.
Both brands had numerous sizes available, and the space wasn’t too crowded. Go and see for yourself. Happy shopping!

260 Sample Sale is back with the Splendid sample sale. If you do a little searching, you will also find a SuperDry rack. Splendid is such a fun brand. They are perfect for any occasion – whether it’s catching up with the girls over brunch, or checking out a new bar. The discounts were about 90% off. You can manage a summer-is-almost-over shopping spree!
The same can’t be said about SuperDry. The single rack was only 30% off. Personally, I think that brand is over priced. My first interaction with SuperDry was when I was shopping for my boyfriend at the time. I saw a $70 pair of cargo shorts and walked right out.
Check out the Splendid sample sale, you might find some great things. Happy shopping!
