SpaceNK Sample Sale offers a variety of cosmetics

Overall, I felt that the SpaceNK sample sale was good for restocking on makeup at a low cost, but many skincare brands were already sold out.

The SpaceNK sample sale had a lot of variety in product and brands. After waiting 20 minutes on a line that wrapped around the block, I was bombarded with a variety of cosmetic and skincare brands and was delighted by the assortment of products. Though I really enjoyed the selection that was available, many high end brands such as Sunday Riley and Barbara Sturm sold out very quickly and will not be restocked to my knowledge. Kevyn Aucoin products  and Ilia products retailed for between $10-$15, which is a really good price for the product.

The sale advertised many skincare products, but sold out very quickly which was disappointing . The line was pretty long and wrapped around the block and I waited about 20 minutes to get in. Overall, for the products they had, the prices were good but did not have many of the brands people were looking for.

Roxanne Assoulin Sample Sale Offers Amazing Bracelets

Overall, the Roxanne Assoulin was amazing. If I didn’t have my purse locked, I would have walked out with 20 more items than I did.

The Roxanne Assoulin sample sale was a little weird initially. The sample sale is split into 2 rooms with different types of merchandise in each one. You received a bag before you walked into the room. A ton of merchandise with lots of colors. Chokers were there as well and a few earrings. The chokers retail for $120, at the sample sale $30.

The sale was buzzing with people, and that’s no surprise given that prices were more than 75% off. Instead of paying $220 at retail for a set of three, you paid $20 here for a bracelet. The only thing you had to be careful with was missing tiles and chips in the enamel. This is one of the good ones. Check it out if you can.

Yigal Azrouel Sample Sale Offers Many Dresses

yigal azrouel sample sale

The Yigal Azrouel sale is well… hmmm. Okay, let’s start at the beginning. Yigal Azrouel has its offices in WeWork, so that gives the sample sale some odd start-uppyy fashion vibe and that’s pretty cool. We liked that. The room was filled with a lot of RTW items: dresses, scarves, jackets, coats and pants. Lots of options to choose from.

Pricing was not amazing. While the discounts were legit – up to 80%, the items were still not cheap. Dresses are $199, coats $700 and CUT25 gowns $70. That being said, we recommend that you check out the sample sale only if you truly care about and love the Yigal Azrouel brand.

Opening Ceremony Sample Sale: To Die For

By: Jacqueline Munro

There is one word to describe the Opening Ceremony sample sale: epic. Whether you’re a girl or guy, looking for edgy streetwear or chic designer labels, there are endless options. For Manhattan natives, it’s a little bit of a pain to get to Williamsburg, but it is definitely worth hitting up this sample sale. 

Boys, get excited; this sale is legit. If you like Opening Ceremony, Raf Simons, Adidas, or Kappa you’re in luck. There is an extremely wide range of t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, and pants—all for good prices. The only issue is that most of the sizes are small/medium; there aren’t many large or extra large options. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the shoes! There are lots of different choices; when I spotted the limited edition Adidas collaborations I was shook! Guys, the line might be long but it will be worth the wait.

Alright ladies, your turn! The merchandise they have at this Opening Ceremony sample sale is to die for. Frills, feathers, faux leather oh my! Seriously though, you have to go. There are classy accessories, gorgeous jackets, tons of sweaters, super cute dresses, funky pants, sexy crop tops, and dope t-shirts and sweatshirts. If you are looking to spice up your wardrobe and add some spunk to your life, this sale is just the way. With brands varying from Alyx to Moschino Couture, there is no shortage of sickening style at this exuberant warehouse. And don’t even get me started about the shoes. The Opening Ceremony shoes are awesome; colorful and good quality. You’ll also be able to cop brands like Giuseppe Zanotti, Proenza Schouler, MM6 Maison Margiela and this year’s favorite: Buffalo London. Girls, get your wallets ready cause this one is gonna hurt.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The merchandise was awesome and plentiful, the warehouse was super cool, and the prices were impressive. If only Williamsburg wasn’t so far (or should I say if only I wasn’t so lazy). If you’re in need of some cool new clothes at good prices, this is the perfect place for you. Just try to get there ASAP because stuff is going to sell fast. We love you Opening Ceremony sample sale!

Fashion J Mendel Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

Good Morning Upper East Siders, I have J Mendel Sample Sale Secret

J Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample SaleJ Mendel Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Traveling to the J Mendel sample sale is like a scene out of Gossip Girl. Their showroom is nestled on Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side. This isn’t just any showroom… This location is closing down amidst their recent financial issues. So what’s the next logical step? Yes, you guessed, sample sale.

The first floor was filled with fur. This is a brilliant move considering the freezing New York temperatures. However, we don’t know if it sparked many impulse purchases, due to the insanely high pricing. There was one coat for $8,000. That may be sample sale pricing for the Upper East Side, but not for the rest of us. Moving upstairs to the second floor you can find a plethora of floor-length gowns, and a few racks of cocktail dresses. There were very few actual samples. Those will cost you in the $900 range. Everything else will run you $1,700 – $3,000+

J Mendel usually has all beautiful pieces. However, there was nothing we felt like were WOW pieces. Especially for those astronomical prices. There wasn’t a shortage of merchandise, and it was very well organized. If you can afford it, check out the J Mendel sample sale before they join Dan Humphry in Brooklyn.

Xoxo, Happy shopping!

First Isabel Marant Sample Sale in New York City

The first ever Isabel Marant sample sale in New York is here! We had the opportunity to sneak peak it tonight as the staff was applying finishing touches to the setup of the space. First off, the space was great – right near Chelsea Market. The brand itself is super-chic and boho at the same time.

Merchandise was great: lots of outerwear and jackets, amazing jackets! With embroidery and designs. Most of the expensive items are 60% off retail. Most of the jackets fall into that 60% off category. The pricing for shoes are $200-$315 per pair. Jeans were super fun and fabulous and heavily embellished.

This is an innovative brand that doesn’t go on sale too often, and this is the first time in New York. We definitely recommend you put it at the top of your shopping list!

More Bags and Clutches at the Kipling Sample Sale

kipling sample sale

The Kipling sample sale at Clothingline was crazy. The people were lined up all the way around the corner of 36th Street. The bins were filled with wallets, small bags and little suitcases.

Retail prices typically are in the $200+ range, and at the sample sale, they were around $40-$50. Although the tables were full of merchandise, we’re pretty sure the merchandise will sell out. If you’re into Kipling

Discounted Handbags at the Bruno Magli and BCBG Sample Sale

bruno magli bcbg sample salebcbg and bruno magli sample sale

We were pleasantly surprised to find an awesome sample sale for handbags in the showroom that hosts a number of brands. Among them are Bruno Magli and BCBG. While the showroom had multiple rooms, only one was dedicated to sample sales.

The bags were on tables and organized by price ranging from $10 to $200 for the most expensive ones. The $10 table had mostly clutches and cheap makeup bags. Nice wallets were going for $50 and $75. The $100 table had gorgeous leather bags for men. And the $200 table did not disappoint either. Puffer bags in different colors were my personal favorites.
