By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

The Vera De Nero showroom is hosting their 2 day sample sale where you will find luxury pieces at moderate prices . Although there is a small selection of items, the quality of the samples are impeccable. With items made in Italy of fine fabrics such as silk, leather, cashmere and more, this sale is perfect to shop if you want luxury at affordable prices. There were many outerwear garments, some originally priced up to $1500 that are now on sale between $115 to $200.The lowest priced item was at $50 for tops. Below are some images of items that you may find at the sale.

Fur Sweater Vest $100

 

Silk Top $50

Sweater Duster $100

Leather Jacket $70

The sales team and owner were very helpful in providing detailed information on each garment and also offered valued opinions on items while trying them on. I personally enjoyed shopping the sale because it was a calm and intimate shopping experience.

Today is the last day of the sale and prices may have dropped. So head over to the Vera De Nero sample sale and let us know what you found!

Nineteenth Amendment lets independent designers sell directly to customers without traditional inventory and engage with shoppers in a way not previously possible. Shoppers, eager to obtain cutting-edge brands, find exclusive styles at below-retail prices by being one of the first to purchase. It matters because the fashion industry was made for this: connecting the patronage of style-conscious shoppers with designers with talent and beautiful designs that aren’t ubiquitous.

4. PERCH

Perch Interactive

 

Perch InteractivePERCH is a startup intent on revolutionizing retail. PERCH unites digital content with physical products with the goal of maximizing engagement, capturing analytics and driving sales. Our patent pending sensing technology detects when shoppers touch and pick up products, and responds immediately with dynamic and compelling content

5. BRICK & PORTAL

Brick and Portal

 

Brick & Portal is a social commerce platform, which brings the true experience of shopping with friends online. Users can create and request unique outfits for any occasion specially designed for each other with the Brick & Portal app.

Brick & Portal allows users to request and curate outfits for each other from a robust cornucopia of items found at top retailers such as Saks and Bloomingdales. A fashionista can now not just get asked for obscure fashion advice on what to wear on a special occasion, but get a concrete request with budget and event in mind. For the curator, the process is like dressing a barbie, gamified and exciting, where a complete look can also be sent to someone outside of the network – naturally spreading the word about this great new way to shop with friends online.

Stay Classy: Morgane Le Fay Sample Sale Review

By Amanda Fontana

Morgane Le Fay is a high-end womenswear retailer, famous for bold designs in classic neutrals. Oversized jackets, ready-to-wear avant-garde gowns, and sheer patterned tops line the racks of this Soho-based store. The Morgane Le Fay sample sale, taking place right at 464 Broome Street, will be open until September 8th. The sample sale is stocked with a variety of pieces from older seasons, and in sizes ranging from extra small to large.

Morgane Le Fay pieces generally retail starting at $1000, so sample sale prices range between $140 for simpler pieces, such as crop tops, to $350 for full-length gowns. Clothes have a focus on a strikingly sharp-cut silhouette, and pieces are made to flatter any body type while maintaining a distinctly modern cut. The iconic sheer tops with delicately subtle patterns are timeless and elegant, ensuring they’ll last for seasons to come.

Though most items are from previous seasons, Morgane Le Fay’s neutral color palettes make it easy to repurpose summer pieces for colder seasons. The store even has a collection of plaid and flannel pieces on sale, which make perfect staples for any casual fall look. The oversized jackets are a must-have for the upcoming winter months, and with the prices steeply discounted from retail, now’s the best time to invest in one.

When: August 30th to September 8th, 11am – 7 pm

ALESSI Sample Sale Review

alessi sample sale new york

By Mary Lange

Are you in need of new kitchenware and houseware items? If so, make sure to stop at Alessi’s Sample sale on 130 Greene Street in the next couple of days! Over 70% of selected designs and floor samples that aren’t to be missed.

There are many full priced pieces mixed in the same area with the sale items. Make certain which sets are on sale by asking one of the many friendly sale associates. The store is very accommodating with their cliental, only wanting for their shoppers to be happy with their finds.

The store was beautifully organized with tall white shelves that truly showed off the best elements in each of the items. It was obvious that the displays were well thought out and carefully designed. I was profoundly taken back how well the visual merchandising was.

The modern take of the interior mixed with the abstract displays only enhanced the products and made me want to buy more.

These are prices you just cannot beat, especially for the quality! Everyone needs to visit before the sale ends.

JADE Swim Sample Sale

JADE Swim Sample Sale

JADE Swim, end of summer, sample sale!

By: Nanda Rai

I’m not sure if the summer season and the sample sale gods are friends or they’re on the love/hate battlefield, but I’m having a huge dilemma. That is? I don’t have enough weekends left to wear these color block pieces I’m obsessing over at the JADE Swim Sample sale, located at the Chelsea Market (15th street and 9th ave). Starting today, Wednesday August 30th (10:30AM—7:00PM) — Sunday September 3rd 2017 (10:30AM-5:00PM) I suggest you walk over there if possible while reading, its a promised good sale, guaranteed and the atmosphere is so fun! Chelsea Market is the ultimate playground to shop in!

Lets start with our shopper PQQ- price, quality and quantity. The price list, super straight forward. Separate pieces are $29 and $59 for a one piece. If we were to compare retail prices? Their one-side Apex swimsuit’s retail price dives into the deep side of the sea, at $198, but now? $59! All yours! The Micro one-piece retails for $220 and the Chain Reaction V Neck one-piece, $150. Now, $59 for all! Also, the separate pieces ( I suggest mix & match) range in retail price from $75-110, and now selling out at this sample sale for? $29 !!! Insanity. I could not be more happy writing this to all of our shoppers!

Price List

Ultimate steal, right? I cannot wait for you to have first dibs. Even though its preferred not to try on the swim, there are dressing rooms in the back and I suggest putting it over undergarments to make sure you’re getting your right size! There is plenty in stock for all sizes, the white suits are seemingly running low, however every other color is in attendance. Also, the quality is undeniably beautiful, I mean we all know JADE swimwear as one of the hottest fashion competitors in the industry rated highly by InStyle Magazine. Trust us, or trust that toned gut you’ve been working out all summer, this sale is amazing!

Sizes run from Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large but it did look like they’re made smaller than average. The color palette that you’ll see is beyond perfection. The ocean blue, the strawberry red, the sand tan. (yes I’m making these names up, but i promise you’ll envision this exact color from this fun description) Then you have your super cool, “This is me not trying, I’m an natural” collection giving you LIFE with our favorite core colors, matte black, bright white and a really moss olive that if you ever get stranded on an island, you’ll be so in-tune with the color of nature.

What I love most are the styles, the sharp cuts that make an edgy yet curvy look under the sun. I know, groundbreaking!

Make your dreams come true, your shopping dreams that is, at the Dreams On Air Sample Sale.

Cinderella for the day, Shoe Box Sample Sale, we’re looking for the perfect pair!

By: Nanda Rai

One of the most exciting sales yet! The Shoe Box has collaborated with 260 5th ave, the hub of all sample sales, tempting us to tower stack our closet shelves with even more shoes. As soon as you enter the sale, you’ll see, 1 pair for $80 and 2 pairs for $140. Any shoe, boot, sandal, flat, classic, sneaker, furry slipper, the list really goes on and yes they really mean any pair for this price! The workers are helpful and theres an area in the back to sit and try on, just be aware you’ll have to leave your belongings with security at the front entrance. The sale offers women sizes ranging from 5-11, keep in mind that not all of the sizes have the same options, however there were enough styles/trendy seasonal options to go around. *Oprah’s voice* “You get a pair! You get a pair!” The crowd goes wild*

I must mention SCHUTZ (average retail at $170 per pump) leading the sale and bringing the real heat to a summers end! As soon as I walked in, I routinely snap pictures of any shoe that catches my eye, and after I make another round looking for all my favorite designers. FYI, SCHUTZ had the largest selection available and shined in all the spotlight:

Showroom Seven Sample Sale

Lucky 7? Sounds like a fashion house heaven!

by: Nanda Rai

The Solar Eclipse (August 21, 2017) did have a few of us squinty eyed huh? A visit to Showroom Seven had myself as well as a few ShopDroppers doing the same! Up to the 7th floor, walking into a maze of showrooms, mini offices huddled in centerfield, fashion archive bookshelves, racks and tables; stacked with clothing, jewelry, bags, belt and shoes. Not forgetting, the bloggers (thats me), ShopDrop team (thats us!) mixed in all the fun. What was my perspective you might ask? Hmm, with a paintbrush in hand,* “what was I really looking at?” A stellar fashion house that is! In its truest art form, “organized chaos,” INDEED! Cheers to another fun sample sale adventure because isn’t that what we all are working to spend our money on, its no secret. 😉

There is a ShopDropApp special event sample sale today at Showroom Seven located at (501 10th ave) and before scrolling down for an exclusive sneak peak, I must say the price range is a little obscure. Putting the “responsible spending” shopping advice aside, what I loved most about this sample sale is you’re guaranteed a good buy with this melting pot of designers.

Did I mention, free champagne, 5% off if you’re coming on behalf of ShopDrop, lets turn it up a notch right before NYFW, shall we? Thank you Showroom Seven for opening your doors to us on this special occasion. H.A.S.H.T.A.G : #eclipse #OnceInASolarEclipseSale. So here it goes, pretty pink suede, cool corduroy, heavy leather, light down feather jackets. All of these pieces decorated the racks and I was immediately convinced that I wasn’t prepared for Fall as I am now, after this sale! Take a peak at my favorite finds!

Sneak Peak into the Showroom Seven Sample Sale

Showroom Seven Sample Sale

Starting tonight, Showroom Seven will be hosting it’s first sample sale in collaboration with ShopDrop. We had the opportunity to check it out and here is our feedback: great pieces, high prices. If you are looking to discover new brands and unique pieces and price isn’t an issue, then this is a sale for you to check out. If you are looking for great prices, then the Shoe Box sample sale is probably better for you.

So below we are including photos from the event. Thanks to Maura and Swanky Savages for running the model & photography drill. Beautiful job! So while you could find some dresses for $39 from the Robin brand, most items that are really cool range in the $250 or $350 range. Tonight Fashion Sherlock is joining us and will take over our story on Instagram – make sure you are following us! For a list of brands at the sample sale, see our sample sale post from last week.

See images below – most items are one of a kind and come in single copies. There will be free champagne tonight. Can’t wait to see you there!
