Shelly and Renee sales brings us another sophisticated sample sale with exquisite Pamella Roland gowns. If you have a special black tie event, you can score a beautiful embellished gown at the Pamella Roland sample sale. Higher-end sample sale prices are always technically high. However, we felt that the prices were fair for the merchandise available. Gowns were around $600, and gowns with crazy beading went for about $1,600.
The selection was incredible. There wasn’t a ton of merchandise, but all items were beautiful. They also had a variety of sizes. Like we always say – quality not quantity. Treat yourself at the Pamella Roland sample sale, and then treat yourself to a night out on the town

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly covetedReformation Sample Sale,but sadly we were let down. We had to stand in the blazing, boiling, burning heat for hours. Clothing by Reformation is seen all over Instagram, featured by renowned bloggers such as Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and Jacey Duprie of DamselinDior and those alike.
As we stood on Greene street dying a slow and very warm death, we pondered the question. Is the Reformation Sample Sale worth it? After consulting with shoppers leaving, philosophers thinking and our inner selves, we have arrived at the definitive conclusion – absolutely not. Yes, the clothing is very cute, extremely chic and seen all over social media. No one, not even our worst enemies should be forced to stand in boiling heat, unless they’re at the beach getting a nice tan with a margarita in hand. As you probably followed from our Instagram stories, Zara and Reformation make merchandise that are extremely similar in pattern, color and style. The best perk is that Zara is way cheaper.
We rated the Reformation Sample Sale a 3 out of 10. You would think based on the line that wrapped around the block, that they were giving away free puppies and ice cream. But no: no puppies, no ice cream. If you don’t have time to melt on the sidewalks of NYC, we recommend you go to Zara and check out their merchandise. Even better, sit on your couch, pour yourself a nice bloody glass of rosé and shop online!

Today we had the chance to stop by the Karen Millen Sample Sale at 261 West 36th Street. If you are in need of a bright pop of color in your closet this summer, the Karen Millen Sample Sale has everything you need – for cheap!
The Karen Millen Sample Sale boats racks organized by size and filled with colorful dresses, tops and skirts. There was merchandise in nearly every shade of the rainbow including Gen Z Yellow to Millennial Pink. A majority of the merchandise still had their original tags from Bloomingdales on them! They also had a decent selection of blazers and outerwear. There was a small selection of shoes as well, a majority of them were heels.
We rated the Karen Millen Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise in variety of colors but it was mostly formal workwear and evening. The prices were really good on the dresses, pants and tops but more expensive on outerwear and blazers. The shoes were definitely the best deal they offered, buying 1 pair for 30$ and 2 pairs for 50$! If you are in need for something bright in fun, we recommend you take a look!
Thanks to our awesome users, we caught wind of the secret Christian Louboutin sample sale. As many of you know, invitations to the events are highly coveted and distributed to the few lucky fashionistas.
If you’re stuck without an invitation like the rest of us, don’t despair. We received intel on merchandise and pricing and were happy to learn that it’s nothing special. Current markdowns at Farfetch, Nordstrom and Saks offer the same collection for even lower prices.
At the sale, prices start at $200, but don’t kid yourself – most shoes are in the $300-$400 range, with expensive styles priced as high as $1,000. So Kates were $400 at the sale, and they are $398 at Nordstrom, which is offering 60% off a well stocked selection.
Let’s face it. It ain’t 2008 anymore and the Louboutin fiery sole is just not as hot. We really are nearing the end of the Louboutin craze. As exclusive as the brand tries to make the sample sale, the discounts all over the country and the multiple allowed invites all serve to indicate that the brand performance isn’t as healthy as it once was.
If you do have a friend at the brand and still want to check it out (after reading all of this) head on over – details below.
