Robert Clergerie Sample Sale Doesn’t Disappoint

By: Riva Neumann

The Robert Clergerie Sample Sale was a sale I would recommend for some great shoes at a great price. Shoes are $99 and boots are $149 as well as a table of slides and sandals for $55. Everything was organized by size which was great, the tables were all full of so many good quality shoes and boots that were absolutely amazing. My favorite pair was a pair of gold high heeled thigh-high boots that were almost as tall as me! and for only $149 that is such a great deal.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this sale was that they didn’t have any men’s shoes, but the women’s shoes do not disappoint! There is something for everyone here and you are crazy if you don’t walk out with something!

I gave this sale an 8.5/10, these shoes are so great and this sale is one you should not miss!

The Ba&sh Sample Sale Left me with Mixed Emotions

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Ba&sh sample sale was unbelievably hectic, which is no surprise given that it is taking place at 260 sample sale. I’m honestly having a hard time deciding whether or not I loved this sale, here’s why:

For starters, did I mention that I hate 260? For one of their first sample sales I was hoping that  Ba&sh would choose a KILLER host like, I don’t know, us maybe?  But seriously, we all know that 260 prices suck which is such a drag because they had amazing merchandise at this sale. There were so many cute dresses, sweaters, coats, and skirts. The skirts and dresses varied in length and style, and the outerwear ranged from shearling to denim. There were also some super stylish wide leg corduroys, but they were literally designed for women with legs like flag poles. Aside from the clothing there was a small selection of shoes and an even smaller selection of accessories.

So how am I supposed to determine whether or not I loved this sale? I shouldn’t be okay with settling for mediocre prices just because the merchandise rocks. But hey, I guess that’s the name of the 260 game. I decided to give this sale a 7/10 because I did walk away with some great (pricey) finds. But if you’re hoping to walk away feeling victorious I’d get over there quickly because the first day was PACKED! Good luck shoppers. Stay safe out there it’s a vicious crowd.

Florals Galore at the Yumi Kim Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Yumi Kim Sample Sale was really impressive this time at Clothingline! They had a wide variety of sizes and styles of dresses, tops and bottoms.  Maxi dresses are $95 and short and midi are $75. Jumpsuits are also $75 and tops, blazers, and bottoms are $50. They had mostly floral patterns, but also had a good amount of velvet, solid colors and shiny fabrics.

The sale was really well organized; everything categorized  by style and color so it was very easy to go through and find what I was looking for. I bought myself a cute midi floral dress for $75 thats perfect for the transition between summer and fall.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7.5/10. I was happy with this sale and you will be too!

Alexandre Birman Sample Sale has Gorgeous Options for Everyone

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Alexandre Birman sample sale is simply amazing, I’ve never seen such a heavenly sight. There are a ton of stunning shoes ranging from size 5 to size 12.5 — I didn’t even know brands made shoes in women’s size 12.5! If you missed out on our VIP access to this sale, make sure you purchase the monthly package so that you don’t keep passing up opportunities for early entry to great sales like this one!

This sample sale is taking place in a huge showroom in Chelsea. There is a seemingly endless amount of tables filled with shoes lining each wall, and they are all organized by size. Staff members are stationed at each table and they are more than willing to help you find the right pair of shoes. My favorite pieces at the sale are all booties, but there are also amazing pumps, sandals, and espadrilles. There are lots of classic styles as well as some more eccentric ones. From colorful snakeskin wedges to black suede boots you’re sure to find something you’ll love.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The pricing is good, and the selection is unreal. Furthermore, not having to deal with nasty employees or a terrible ambiance like at 260 made everything 100x more enjoyable. Definitely check out this sale ASAP; I have a feeling it is going to be popular and you DON’T want to miss out.

90% Off at the Michael Kors Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Michael Kors Sample Sale is the sale to be at! Literally everything is 90% off you know you are getting a good deal. Most of the clothes available were less than $100, and a lot were even less than $50! The dresses were absolutely gorgeous and some ranged in the $100-$200 range, while others were well over $500, but retailed around $5000. My personal favorite was the bag selection. They have python bags for less than $300, how crazy is that? a lot of bags are less than $100 and the ones that are more are a lot of exotic leathers. I bought a python bag for $275 and a hand-painted gold python clutch for $79.

The shoes are also a great deal, most are under $100 (I got myself a pair of $450 shoes for $45 WHAT THE HECK).  I was really impressed with sale and I think everyone should go!

Overall, I gave this sale a 9/10, this is a great sale and you are definitely getting a good deal!

Elie Saab Sample Sale – Starting at 75% Off

elie saab sample sale 2019

The Elie Saab sample sale is hosted at Soiffer Haskin, which means no photos or videos allowed. We’re giving you the verbal low-down here.

At 10:30AM on the first day there was no line at all to get in, and while there were people shopping, it wasn’t busy by any stretch of the imagination. The huge space was lined with gowns on the left (organized by size and then color), dresses and separates in the center and shoes and other accessories on the right.

Sizes were European and US versions, but staff recommended to go a size up since they run small. Each item was priced individually and you had to multiply the price point by .25 to figure out what you would pay.

If you care about the brand, these prices cannot be beat. #1, it’s hard to find this brand on e-commerce to begin with since the selection on other retailer sites is limited and #2, you definitely cannot beat the prices. A gorgeous beaded gown for $1,200 is a steal. If you want a gown but don’t care for the designer – skip.

I love the brand (even made a copy of it at one point in my life for a fancy wedding) so I’m giving it an 8 out 10.

Sonia Rykiel Sample Sale – Gorgeous and Expensive

sonia rykiel sample sale fall 2019

We got a sneak peak of the Sonia Rykiel sample sale today (as did our VIPs) and here’s what we think in a nutshell: great stuff, very expensive.

When you walk into the room, the hallway area is filled with bags, that range from $125 to $300. Some people were complaining that the bags were $100 at the last sale and are $125 now, but all in all, a lot of people walked out with bags.

The inner room was filled with clothes. Boxes of knits in the center and racks with sweaters, dresses, skirts and pants around the perimeter of the room. There were signs on the wall with pricing. Sweaters ranged from $110 to $300, skirts were $175, short dresses $225 and longer dresses for $300.

Should you go? That ultimately depends on how much you care about the price and how much you are interested in spending. I loved the stuff, but did not want to spend $300 on a sweater so 6.5 out of 10 for me.

Lingua Franca Sample Sale Is Still Too Expensive

We’re not going to lie. The Lingua Franca sale was kind of a disappointment. First off, there wasn’t too much of a selection – just a few sad racks of sweaters with some inspirisms. And whatever they did have was super expensive, even with the discount. Sweaters ranged from $100 to $185 (and these aren’t even fancy party sweaters). These are your average wear on Sunday with jeans type of sweaters.

The sale only had some sweaters but no cardigans (like – at all). And there was a small rack of children’s sweaters. The Yoya sale took place in the same location and was much better in that there was a lot more merchandise, and prices were 60-70% off retail.

All in all, stay home. This sample sale isn’t worth it. There are many sweater sample sales coming up and you’ll have plenty to choose from for a much better price. We’re giving this sale a 4 out of 10.

Interesting Stuff at the Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale was not super impressive and was just like your typical 260 sample sale. They had a lot of good pieces though at some pretty good discounts so I don’t think it was a total bust. They have a good selection of tops starting at $55 for t-shirts and going up to $150 for knitwear. Bottoms are all $50 besides trousers which as $90. Day dresses and jumpsuits are $100, cocktails dresses are $320 and gowns are $450. The jackets were nice but they were $320 which I think is pricey for a sample sale.

There was a lot of fashion jewelry as well as a nice selection of bags. Fashion jewelry starts at $35 and goes up to $130 while bags start at $50 and go up to $250. The shoes were also a great steal, if there was no box they were $15, but by the time I got there I couldn’t find any. Other shoes started at $50 and went up to $250. They also had a nice selection of accessories such as scarves, gloves and wallets.

Overall, I gave this sale a 6/10, I didn’t find it super exciting but if you are a fan, you would probably really like this sale!
