The Kooples & Zadig & Voltaire Sample Sale Review

The Kooples sample sale review

It’s a lucky day in NYC when doors for the Zadig & Voltaire sample sale and The Kooples sample sale open on the same exact day (albeit in different locations). We had our fans hit up both of the sales prior to opening so that we could deliver a full detailed report with photos and prices! Both brands are contemporary and have items for both: men and women.

So for The Kooples:

First things first: great selection – mostly past seasons. Sizes XS-XL. Lots of shoes, tops, outerwear, dresses, suits, and leather jackets. Prices ranges from $40 for tops to $350 for leather jackets. The average price is in the $150 range for a brand that retails with an average price upward of $500.

Where: 150 Greene St, NY, NY
When: Tue, Oct 31 – Sun, Nov 5

For Zadig & Voltaire: 

Sizes ranged from XS to L, selection included current season. Some of our users wished for a larger selection. This one had prices ranging from $30 for accessories to $400 for furs. The average price was in the $125-$250 range. At retail, Zadig & Voltaire items easily exceed $500.

The Row Sample Sale Review

The Row is a ready-to-wear fashion line created by the Olsen twins. Their showroom, taking place at the Met Pavilion at 123 W 18th St on the fifth floor, features pieces that can retail for over $1,000.

There’s a huge variety of items to look at; between clothes, outerwear, and shoes, there’s something for every occasion. Sizes vary from 0 to 12 and XS to L, and prices range from $200 to $1,000 for more extravagant pieces. Shoes are in European sizes, so remember to check a conversion chart to find your size.

Some personal favorites of mine were their blazers, silk tops, and trousers. The showroom is enormous, so it’s hard to narrow it down; be sure to check it out for yourself!

This sale is credit card only, and bags are checked, so come prepared!

Oscar De La Renta Sample Sale Review

I woke up today, looking for a sample sale, so I immediately logged onto my ShopDrop app. I noticed the Oscar de la Renta sale right away, but kept my expectations low, seeming too good to be true. There won’t be any stock left, I told myself on the way over, and that’s if you can wait out the long line that has to be there.

Well, dear shoppers, I stand corrected. The Oscar de la Renta sale had an extensive stock of everything, without the crowds of people you typically have to push through when a bigger brand holds a sample sale. Coats, furs, menswear, womenswear, children’s wear; the sale even had a home goods section!

Prices were in the $100+ range, but the pieces on sale were so true to the artistry of Mr. De la Renta, that plenty of stock is definitely worth the splurge.

Check it out! The sale ends October 29!

260 Sample Sale Maura McNulty Sample Sale Review Wolford

Wolford Sample Sale Review

Wolford Sample SaleBy Maura McNulty

On Saturday, my mother was in the city visiting me, so of course the first thing I did with her was check out a sample sale. We looked up sales using the map feature on the ShopDrop app, when she mentioned how much she loves Wolford, so we decided to head over to 260 Sample Sale’s Fifth Avenue location to find some tight tights.

Since it was at the end of the week, the stock was a little picked over, but there were still plenty of hosiery, teddies, and ready-to-wear options to chose from.

Personally, my favorite aspect of the sale was the jewelry; towards the back of the room, there’s a table set up with the most beautiful bejeweled chokers and necklaces. Paired with a silk nightie and some heels, and you’re on your way to looking like Bella Hadid stepping out of Tao and into a sea of photographers.Wolford Jewelry

If you’re looking for a chill sale with some amazing markdowns, make sure to head over to the Wolford Sample Sale at 260 Sample Sale. Head over fast, though; the sale ends tonight (Saturday, 10/21) at 7pm!

Etienne Aigner Sample Sale Review

Etienne Aigner Sample Sale NYC

Here is what you could find in the Etienne Aigner sample sale in  SoHo this week! We had our ShopDrop early access event last night and it was simply awesome!

Most items start at $250 at retail and go all the way up to $995! Sizes for clothes ranged from 0 to 14, a ton of overstock, beautiful wool-cashmere coats, blazers and sweaters. Handbags were from $15 to $120 and ranged in color, style and size. All shoes and boots were gorgeous but size 6. Everything is made in Italy and is absolutely beautiful. At the sale, the highest price items were $120 for exquisite leather bags. I personally bought my entire winter wardrobe, and if there is one sample sale you have to hit up this Summer, you bet it is Etienne Aigner. As always pics and prices below. You can still hit up the sale now.

Milly Sample Sale Review

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

Everyone must have heard great things about the Milly Sample Sale because after being opened for one day,  customers were still flooding the fitting rooms and perusing through the selection of garments that were available to shop. There are Women’s tops, skirts, pants, dresses, jumpsuits, outerwear & more from the Fall/ Winter collection to stock up on. All items are true samples with limited sizing and there are some irregular items mixed in so be sure to examine your items of interest thoroughly before purchasing. These items ranged from $25 to $149 for apparel, $75 to $105 for handbags and $75 to $195 on shoes from both Milly and Manolo Blanik.

However, that was the past, I have better news regarding prices for you all. For the last 2 days of the sale (today and tomorrow), the prices have been reduced!

Dresses are now $45

Separates are now $15 to $35

Bags are now $50 to $75

Here are some of the items that I spotted at the sale.

Don’t miss out on Milly’s current season product at discount prices. Hopefully some of these items are still available for you to get your hands on!

Reiss London Sample Sale Review

Reiss London sample sale review NY

It’s a Monday in October, which means it is prime time to check out the Reiss London sample sale taking place over on 260 Fifth Ave. The place is crowded but not overcrowded, which is good, because standing outside in the rain would have been absolutely brutal. The shelves are lined 2/3 with women’s items, and 1/3 with mens. There is a rack of jumpsuits, three racks of jackets and coats, two of dresses, two of skirts and two of tops. Sizes range from small to large.

Original price tags are on the clothes, so you know exactly what your discount is when heading to check out. A number of pieces that stood out in my mind: a white and black long jacket in Kate Middleton style (originally $540, here $275), a greyish-turquiose dress that was $420 and is now $120. There were also a few bags and belts on the side. Overall, the sale was great and I definitely recommend you check it out. As always, pricing and images below. Enjoy!

Diesel Sample Sale Review

 

Back at 260 Fifth Ave for another sample sale…. it’s a good one! Diesel is a brand most know for their denim and cool graphic tees and more. With stores all over the states, this is a company that will give you good quality but at a price. This is where the sample sale comes in! Usually, their clothes range from anywhere in the $50s-$250s so for most they might not be the most practical brand but the sample sale does alleviate most of the price points

 

As I browsed through the T-shirts and pants , they had a great selection of menswear. This includes graphic tees, plain tees and regular denim: a staple in anyone’s closet. They also had items like Winter Jackets, Shoes and underwear, all for an arguably great price point. I’ll post the prices below so you can get a feel of the range:

As you can see, most things are pretty reasonable and doable, if you want to take the plunge that’d be up to you. I wasn’t much of a diesel fan before I hit the sample sale up but there are a lot of nice things they’ve had on display. I looked in both the women’s and men’s sections of the sale and was pleasantly surprised with my findings in both.

 

I would say go check it out before it closes! Sunday would be the last day to see the full selection of stuff they have to sell. 260 Fifth Ave is a popular spot for a lot of sample sales so they change frequently. Make sure to get ahead of the curve and make sure you sign up with their emailing list , even if you can’t make it to the Diesel sale. It’s always nice to know when a sample sale is, more for less 🤑
