Most Items Under $250 at the Prabal Gurung Sample Sale

prabal gurung sample sale shopdrop app review

We were quite relieved to discover that Prabal Gurung is selling items for under $200 at the sample sale.

The sale took place in the Prabal Gurung showroom in the fashion district of NY. Over 6 racks of clothes ranging in price from $25 to $250. Most items I liked were priced at $125. Some items were overstock and available in numerous sizes, while others were true samples and were held together with safety pins. You’d probably want to get that fixed before dashing into a party.

There were plenty of high-heeled shoes for $65/$90/$110 and even Manolo Blahniks but almost all shoes were in size 40. There were also $25 boxes of tees which you could dive into for some AMAZING finds. All prices are color-coded.

Loro Piana Cashmere Mostly Half Off at the Sample Sale

Loro Piana sample sale review

We hit up the Loro Piana sample sale yesterday and loved the merchandise. But we can’t lie – we cried when we saw the prices. While the prices drop every day, they were still extremely high. So basically, if you have $800 to dish out for a beautiful cashmere sweater, definitely go to the sale. If not, wait it out and maybe check out the sale on the last day. Since images weren’t allowed, we took similar items from the web to serve as a reference. All info below – enjoy!

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Scotch and Soda ShopDrop

Come Down and Have Some Fun at the Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Head over to the Scotch and Soda sample sale, if not for the great deals, but for the eye candy! Since this sale had mostly men’s clothing, there were a quite a few cuties shopping. Anyway… back to the sale. I was very impressed with the Scotch and Soda sample sale. There were a ton of great pieces for both men and women, and for both Summer and Winter. The Scotch and Soda sample sale is being held in their showroom, so the place is rather small and can get kinda hot (no pun intended). There are no formal dressing rooms. You kinda just try stuff on whereever. That’s not so bad when you’re standing around a bunch of shirtless men, but if you are the shy type, wear a bodysuit under your clothing.

The Scotch and Soda sample sale got a 7 out of 10 on the ShopDrop scale. The prices were good (most stuff under $40!) and the selection was great! I docked some points for a disappointing accessories section. They had two plastic bins with a few belts and super random items. Their showroom is also fairly large, but they only sectioned off a small area for the sale. They had the space and could have put more items on sale. That being said, the Scotch and Soda Sample sale is totally worth checking out. Head over to Union Square tomorrow, and maybe you will catch the farmer’s market too! Deets below!

Three Trends We Hope Aren’t Here to Stay for Long

By: Cristina Martin

Spring and Summer are right around the corner, even though it may not feel like it in New York. We can’t wait to shed off all our layers and show off what we are actually wearing under all these coats. Although the spring season allows for the streets to be our runway, we are not so excited to see some of these current trends. They are here to stay, but hopefully not for long.

  1. Dad Sneakers

    Dad sneakers, who came up with this?! We personally just don’t understand this trend. There are so many cute sneakers out there. Even Balenciaga can’t tempt us to surrender to this trend. Why are people giving into this trend? Who really wants to dress like their Dad?

  2. Plastic 
    Photo: Christian Vierig/Getty Images

    This is another trend we really don’t understand. Plastic was once seen as a “cheap” alternative, but somehow it has evolved from or Diet Coke bottles to designer fashion. We understood the plastic handbag trend. (Guilty of owning the Ted Baker plastic toat.) Why incoporate plastic into your clothes? Doesn’t that make you hot?! (No punn intended)
    Plastic? Maybe not so fantastic…

  3. Sheer

    Okay, okay, we were guilty of following this trend as well when it was popular in the early 2000s. However, we don’t want to see it resurface. It is exhusting to have to find the perfect undergarment to make your sheer look “appropriate.” We don’t have time to find the perfect cardigan, or shop for camisoles in 100 colors. No thank you. We just want to wear one piece of clothing and go about our day.

4 out of 10 for the 3.1 Phillip Lim Sample Sale

Phillip Lim

Photo credit: The Best Fashion Blog

The 3.1 Phillip Lim opened doors this morning. While I didn’t head down there myself, Sample Sale City stepped in and sent a detailed report of her findings. Overall, the sale was devastating, the prices were too high for sample sale shoppers regardless of retail prices. At off Saks, handbags sell for less. In terms of selection, SSC wasn’t too impressed either. Regardless, there was a line out the door.

For women, the cheapest items of clothing sold for $50, and the most expensive $500. For men same range: $50-$500.

If you want to check this sale out, details are below:

Cinzia Rocca Sample Sale Opens Today: Stock Up on Classy Trenches

Cinzia Rocca NY sample sale review

The Cinzia Rocca bi-annual sample sale opens today, and we are delighted to offer you an exclusive sneak peak inside right before opening. The good news is that the pieces are stunning and affordable.

The Italian brand produces trench coats, bags and scarves of the highest quality. A special line is done in collaboration with Loro Piana, the exclusive cashmere brand – and yes, items from that collection are also available at the sale for $200.

Trenches that retail for $850 and $1,020 are at the sale for $100 or $200. The downside (or maybe for some upside) is that every piece is a one-of-a-kind. So if you have your eye on a specific item make sure to get there early enough to score the deal. Clothing, bags, hats and scarves that retail for north of $500 are selling at the sample sale for a mere $25 and $50, so yes – we’d recommend it. As always, details, photos and prices below. Enjoy!
