Frame Sample Sale – Didn’t You Know? Canadian Tuxedos are Back!

By: Ashley Randall 

We had the chance to get an early preview of the Frame Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. The sale officially. The sale officially opened this morning at 10 AM. To start off, Frame makes great jeans as well as some nice tops. We were disappointed to find that there were only six racks of jeans in comparison to last years sale. As well, the prices for the jeans went up an additional five dollars from last year. The sample selection of jeans was limited as well but there were a good selection of tops and outerwear. The saving grace of the sale was the men’s section! Lots of cute chinos and denim for all your men.

Overall, we rated this sale a 6 out of 10. The jeans are $75 dollars down from $295 but there is a limited selection. If any man in your life is looking for a pair of jeans, we recommend you stop by! We are still dreaming about the white jeans with the feathered bottoms and hoping for some reductions in the next coming days.

Leggings, Tops and Jewelry at the Gottex Sample Sale

gottex sample sale

Okay, you know us. We like sample sales that are in showrooms and sample sales that are cheap. Gottex is definitely one of those. It’s in the brand showroom on West 39th St, has a ton of racks of swimwear, leggings and athletic tops to choose from, and most items sell for $10, $15 or $20 bucks. That’s not a sample sale where you have to leave without an arm and a leg after standing in line in the rain for hours.

Bonus points for the jewelry table at the end of the sale with adorable bangles and earrings selling for less than $20 bucks as well. This sale will give you a ton of merchandise for summer vacation and you’ll leave without declaring bankruptcy. We vote yes.

As with all sample sales, all sales here are final.

Luxcartel Sample Sale – The Place for Luxurious Clothes

By: Riva Neumann 

The Luxcartel Sample Sale is the place to find Alena Akhmadullina, Anais, Bakari, Kalmanovich, and Phialebel for some insane discounts. Pieces ranged in price but they had $40 bins as well. There were some pieces that were around the $100 to $200 range and some ranginf from $500 to $700. The discounts were pretty good but still expensive. They also had some really nice bags ranging from around $250-$500.

The showroom it was held in was super cute and very well organized, making it easy to find what you are looking for. Also, everything was marked with a price which is great since it was easy to tell how much everything cost. The sale didn’t have a ton of product available, only about 5 or 6 racks of clothes but everything that was there was super nice quality. The bathing suits were also interesting in that they were really cool designs and ranged from about $200-$300. The sunglasses were pretty decently priced at $100 per pair.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10. I would recommend if you know the brands and shop it regularly or if you are down for some really good and stand out pieces.

The Clothingline Sample Sale has a Variety of Brands

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Clothingline multi-brand sample sale is a mish-mosh of the good, the bad, and the ugly. While some brands have great stuff for amazing prices, other brands have hideous pieces for even more hideous prices. 

This sample sale includes the following brands: Petersyn, Sundays, Pam and Gela, Vivienne Hu, Minnie Rose, Walter Baker, Generation Love, Lele Sadoughi, and leftovers from the R13 sample sale that started weeks ago. Here’s the quick rundown: Petersyn, awesome stuff for great prices. Sundays: super cute, cheap loungewear. Pam and Gela: cute stuff but way overpriced. Vivienne Hu: ugly rip off. Minnie Rose: cute and cozy but too expensive. Walter Baker: funky leather jackets for a good price. Generation Love: meh merchandise but priced well. Lele Sadoughi: cheap looking expensive jewelry. R13: markdowns are great and the prices are finally where they should be. 

Overall I’m giving this sale a 6/10. While some stuff is beautiful and amazingly priced, other stuff is really crappy and way too expensive. It is a strange mix of brands; I wouldn’t bank on leaving with something you love.

The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!
