Oscar de la Renta Sample Sale Has Stunning Pieces

oscar de la renta sample sale spring 2019oscar de la renta sample sale

This wasn’t your standard Oscar de la Renta sample sale. It was hosted by the List (previously Jen X) and was by rsvp only. The room was full of gowns and ready to wear items. There was a decent amount of fur pieces.

The flip side of a designer sale with gorgeous items, is that you definitely need to be ready to part with your money. Nothing was really a bargain other than the jewelry. The gowns were beautiful. There was a spacious fitting room set up for try ons. Sweet staff! They even had some home accessories, such as fur pillows and throws. And if you know someone getting married, 2 racks of bridal to boost.

If you have money to spend, definitely check this one out!

Katama Sample Sale for Yacht Boys

Katama Sample sale 2019

The Katama Swim sample sale has plenty of bathing suits. Other than that, there isn’t much. The entire place had 5 racks of clothes, mostly swim trunks. The clothing was very well-made, clearly good quality. Trunks that retail for $165, don’t cost more than $35-$40 at the sale. A few jackets that were originally $450 cost $90 at the sale. And it’s not like they are past season – you can still find the same stuff on the website for retail prices.

The brand is for yacht boys and used to sell at Barneys and on Moda. If you go to the sale, you’ll meet the lovely owner modeling his own brand. If the clothing isn’t up your alley, at least you’ll have the experience of meeting an entrepreneur.

Stunning Pieces at the Dennis Basso Sample Sale

dennis basso sample sale review

As always, the Soiffer Haskin sales offer a very pleasant experience in terms of organization. The whole place was clean, neat and not too crowded. The items at the sale are exquisite, but the prices for Dennis Brown are not forgiving.

Dennis Basso is a luxury brand and for those who love the brand, the sale is great. You’ll get 50% off the retail prices. But if you are looking for a steal, this sale is definitely for you. Most of the gowns are over $4,000 (after the discount is applied!!!) Either way, the bottom line is that the sale has great items and expensive prices.

Also, keep in mind, Soiffer drops prices on the last day. Might be worth checking out.

Bill Blass Sample Sale Filled with Splashes of Color

bill blass sample sale review

The Bill Blass showroom was a beautiful space and was filled with colorful handbags. Most of the bags were pretty cute. They cost up to $250 at 80%-90% off. But still, even at 90% off, the place was pretty dead. Mind you, I went on the very first day.

There were three-four rows of clothing. The clothing racks didn’t present anything highly valuable. The only rack that stood out was the one with tulle ruffle skirts.. they were of beautiful colors and fun – and priced at $119.

There were a ton of shoes to choose from: pricing was as low at $10 and went up to $100. Some styles were cute, but again, this really isn’t a brand to die for and run to buy even at these prices. If you missed this one, don’t sweat. The good ones are coming up in 1.5 months.

The 375 Showroom Sale Opens to the Public Today

The 375 Showroom in Brooklyn is hosting another clearance sale. For those who don’t know 375, it’s a hub of designer item and contemporary items. The prices usually range between 20%-60%. True, that the sale doesn’t offer the largest discounts. That being said, the brands like Fendi and Chanel and Balenciaga are really difficult to find on discount.

Below we are including prices and items from the sale. If you have some cash to spend and are into designer items from Palm Angels, Chanel, Balenciaga and more, definitely add this to your to-do list.

Theory and Helmut Lang Sample Sale – Reductions on the Last Day

theory and helmut lang sample sale ny spring 2019

The Theory and Helmut Lang at Clothingline was a solid 6 out of 10. The brands are relatively popular. We’re happy to have them hanging in our closets, but no one ever died for those brands either.

The racks are filled with merchandise, a lot of it is relatively recent merchandise (and not items from some warehouse from 30 years ago), and the prices reflect that as well. In comparison to retail, the prices are a good 70% off, but you still have to shell out $155 for a coat and $65 for a sweater.

Since the sale is at Clothingline, reductions take place as well. Thursday prices drop 25%, and we bet that by Friday, prices will drop another 15%-25%. If you’re looking for staple items to fill your wardrobe, don’t miss this one. As always, detailed photos (and pricing) below.

Manolo Blahnik Markdown Number Two – Down to 60%

The Manolo Boutique sale started in the beginning of January – and today the 2nd markdowns finally begin. While there aren’t too many sizes left, the sale is worth the trip – because if you find something you like at 60% off, you hit the jackpot.

The place is full of classy finds. The iconic hangisis are 50% off, but most other things are 60% off. If you have the opportunity to get yourself into midtown in the next two weeks, definitely add the Manolo markdown to your list of to-dos.

What You’ll Find at the Global Fashions Sample Sale

global fashions group sample sale

Another year and with it another Global Fashions Group. The weather wasn’t great so tracking out wasn’t that easy in the sub-zero temperature. In terms of merchandising – most of the items were Valentino, with some Valentino Red and Missoni as well.

The sale had both clothes and shoes. Shoes were priced at 70% off highest retail price, and clothes were 80% off. Unfortunately, the items are missing price tags, so you have to rely on your phone and research throughout. If you’re looking to spend $300-$1,000 per item, then you should check the Global Fashions sale.

SuperDry Sample Sale is Exactly What You Would Expect from 260

superdry sample sale 2019

SuperDry was a typical 260 sample sale: prices that you know will be reduced on the last day, tons of merchandise but no good finds. People on IG were messaging asking us if they have jackets for men, and they didn’t have the items that people want from Superdry, they just have random pieces.

I didn’t even know SuperDry made denim dresses but at the sale we found out. We were expecting a workout brand, but found a lot of 2nd-tier items like dresses, jeans and shorts.  I would have liked to see more leggings, more dry-fit shirts, jackets.

Our recommendation, skip this. If you’re looking for workout gear, hold out for a sale with better pricing and merchandise.

Jackets and Coats at the Michelle Waugh Sample Sale

michelle waugh sample sale

The Michelle Waugh sample sale was for people who value quality. There were 2 racks of clothes, a lot of the same style in multiple sizes. High quality cashmere and wool. Timeless, trendy and classy pieces. However, we would have loved to see more designs and steeper discounts but you don’t always get what you want in life.

The staff was really sweet and offered an additional 10% off to ShopDrop users. The prices were 50% off retail. Since the coats go for over $1K at retail, the sale would make sense for people who appreciate that brand and quality.
