Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

Even the great bags at James Chan don’t make it worth it to go

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sample sale was extremely small but there were some great bags and heels. The sale was set up with a few clothing racks in the far back, and in the front were shoes, bags, and hats. Everything at the store was organized and laid out very nicely. The staff was not sweet- they all sat in the back of the room when I walked in and did not even get up. Overall, this sale had some great finds but it still is not worthwhile to attend.

Merchandise/pricing: The pricing of this sale was still very high: most bags were $80, dresses $70, cardigans $198, dresses $125, and cotton dresses $98. The shoes were the best part of this sale, however. ALL shoes were $40, which was a great price. There were around 10 shoes left- all fancy heels. The sizes for shoes ranged from size 6-10, and there were tons in stock. As far as clothing goes, there was one of each item (very hit or miss!) The cardigans were mostly made out of wool and alpaca, which made it a harsh texture and the opposite of a cozy soft winter piece. This sale was not worth the travel, unless you live close by.

Rate: 4.5/10 Great bags and heels, the rest is EH.

You Should Probably Just LeLet This One Go

By: Eve Orbach

Luxury hair accessory brand Lelet NY’s sale includes headbands, jewelry, barrettes and more at prices from $35–$100.

Let’s be real: hair accessories are practically made to be lost. If you somehow manage to keep track of your hair ties and bobby pins, please (and I’m being genuine here) share your secrets with the rest of us! Because of this indisputable fact I found the prices to be pretty ludicrous. I understand that these pieces are handmade and are supposedly high-quality, but I will remain steadfast in my beliefs on matters as dire as hair accessories and pricing. And by the way, I said “supposedly” because our followers have shared that pieces from this brand break easily….

There was only enough merchandise to fill one sad, lonely table. Items were separated by price. The pieces were beautiful, I’m not going to lie. It’s just that you can find practically identical items at better prices. However, if you’re a bride it might be worth checking out their stunning bridal section because trust me, that’s one day worth splurging on! (And on a side note: congrats!)

This sale was a 2/10 in my book due to high prices and a lack of options.
