Jimmy Choo Sample Sale – Choos Wisely Choo sample sale

By: Riva Neumann

The second Jimmy Choo Sample Sale of the season had me looking forward to some amazing deals and long lines to get in . Fortunately, only the first half was true in that there was absolutely no line to get into the sale. Prices ranged from $150 to $650 which is a STEAL for Jimmy Choo. The seemingly endless array of discounted Jimmy Choo shoes and bags was absolute heaven.

Though I loved all of the discounted bags and shoes available, they were thrown haphazardly around the showroom. The racks of shoes were messy and mismatched. Though the racks were available for the shoes to be displayed, many of the shoes were lying on the ground. Also, some of the pieces were  damaged and dirty which is not something I want to see from a brand like Jimmy Choo.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10. Loved the product, but wish it was a bit neater. Happy shopping!

80% off Marc Jacobs?!? sign me up! The Marc Jacobs sample sale had everything and more that I was looking for and more. There was so much product available that everywhere I turned, I found something new. They had so many options for sizes which made me really happy to see since sizes at sample sales can be very limiting. I loved the selection of bags available, the only thing I loved more were the prices!The bags were 85% off which made most of the bags under $200.I even bought myself an adorable pink heart bag for $65.

The sale was very organized which was super aesthetically pleasing to me. I loved being able to go to sale and see everything organized by product and size. They also had these adorable dog sweaters I could not get enough of. Let your puppy be the most stylish at the dog park!

I would rate this sale a 9/10, everything about this sale was really great; the selection of pieces, the prices and the discounts. Go out and fill up your closet ASAP!

Brooks Brothers Spring 2019 Sample Sale – Heaven for Men in Suits

brooks brothers sample sale review ny

Last year the Brooks Brothers sample sale only sold accessories and shoes. This year they stepped it up a notch and added suits and shirts to the mix as well. The sale was in a side showroom close to the main store on 44th St. The space was large, very well organized with very sweet and helpful staff placed all over the place.

Suits were in two categories: $399 and $599 (they are all well over a thousand at retail). Shirts were selling for $39 or $69, depending on the box. Ties were selling 1 for $29 and 4 for $100, shoes 80% off for women, 70% off for men. There was a small table of alligator belts, a few handbags for men and women, and a few boxes of accessories at 80% off such as wallets, scarves, gloves and keychains.

Shoes were definitely a killer find. The items from Brooks Brothers is extremely high quality and lasts for a lifetime, so we definitely recommend investing in a good pair of boots or suits. Giving this sale a solid 9 out of 10 – very impressed.

Dion Lee Spring 2019 Sample Sale – Plenty of Evening Gowns

Dion Lee sample sale NYDion Lee sample sale Review NY

Dion Lee sample sale was hosted at the brand downtown showroom. The showroom was quite small, and to be honest, there wasn’t a ton of merchandise.  We found a few good  repeats from the last sale, however. this time the prices were a lot, and we mean a lot, better. Tops were going for $30-$50 and skirts for $50 – they are hundreds at retail!

Despite the amazing prices, there weren’t too many items to choose from. Some items were stained or ripped. If you decide to go to the Dion Lee sample sale, we recommend you go as early as possible because otherwise, there won’t be much left.

In our opinion, the jackets and skirts were the best deal! Come on, $50 skirts and $100 jackets! Another bonus was that a lot of the merchandise was from Spring and Fall 2018. For the good pricing and current merchandise we gave the sale a 7 out of 10! (the other 3 points would be given if there was more to choose from)

The Bandier Sample Sale is a Workout for your Wallet

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Bandier sample sale is located at 260 5th Ave; it is well organized and fully stocked with great merchandise. The only downfall is that the prices are a little steep, so I’d say wait for the markdowns before coming to this sale.

At the Bandier sample sale, there are several racks filled with t-shirts, tank tops, outerwear, leggings, sweatpants, and sports bras. There is also an amazing selection of shoes including (but not limited to) brands like Golden Goose Deluxe Brand, Nike, and Adidas by Stella McCartney. There are lots of vibrant colors and soft fabrics that excited me but I am slightly disappointed by the limited selection of plain black leggings. At this sale, there are also a lot of adorable accessories including (*trend alert*) leather fanny packs and nylon gym bags.

Overall I’m giving this sample sale a 7/10. Although this sample sale has a lot of good merchandise, the prices are just too high. Most of the products were going for about 50% off retail which is not enough of a discount for a sample sale. 260 tends to cut prices as their sales come to an end, so I think it is worth waiting; even if it means sacrificing some of the best merchandise.

Discounts Galore at the Scotch & Soda Sample sale

Scotch & Soda Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Scotch & Soda sample sale had me feeling luxurious without the luxury price. The insane discounts made me want to buy literally everything, with not much stopping me because it was so affordable.The space was absolutely gorgeous with everything neatly organized by size and item. There was nothing that was over $150, with most items ranging between $20-$50. That being said, there was not much variety in what was available but everything that was there was really beautiful and worth the trip.

I would rate this sale a 9/10 since I loved almost everything about this sale. Would highly recommend going if you need more Scotch & Soda in your closet, or if you don’t but just want since the prices are so good. Happy shopping!
