Hugo Boss Sample Sale is Great and Mostly For Men

The Hugo Boss sample sale at Soiffer Haskin was extremely organized. Racks were organized by gender and then by side. Thanks to the rigorous crowd control, there was plenty of room to walk around, select items without feeling like a tightly-packed sardine (like in some other places).

The men really got the best end of this one, 75%-80% of the merchandise was for men. It included shoes, blazers, ties, shirts, sweaters, slacks, outerwear so one could go in and get an entire seasons wardrobe worth of clothes. The prices weren’t amazing for the first day – but Soiffer Haskin always slashes prices on every day of the sale. If you like the brand, it’s worth going back a few times throughout the sale to make sure you get the desired merchandise at the lowest possible price.

The hottest items were the ties (priced better at Macy’s) and sweaters which seemed to be flying off the tables. Lots of shoes as well. We love the brand and enjoyed the sale and recommend that you add it to your shopping list.

Fashion French Connection Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

One of the Best Sales We’ve Seen in a While: French Connection Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this positive about a sample sale. The French Connection sample sale is conveniently located in Midtown. When I walked in the coat check guys were the most attentive and sweet. After chatting them up, I walked to the back and entered the sale. Men’s was first as you walked in. There was a mid-sized section of coats, tops, bottoms, and even $5  ties! If you have to wear ties for work, you can’t beat that! The next, larger room contained women’s. It was the same deal: tops, bottoms, coats, and dresses. There were so many beautiful pieces, but dresses and skirts really caught my eye. Shoes filled the third and final room.

We rated the French Connection Sample sale a 9 out of 10. Yes, it was that good. The clothing was super cute, and the prices were unbeatable! You can use this sale to fill up your closet or mark everyone off your Christmas list. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. Check out the French Connection sample sale. You won’t regret it! Happy shopping!

Prabal Gurung Sample Sales Held Together with Safety Pins

Prabal Gurung sample sale fall 2018

We’re glad Prabal Gurung had a sample sale this Fall (even though it was only one day). That being said, it wasn’t all wine & roses. The stock merchandise was beautiful but few styles. We got there at 8:15AM and most of the racks were already half-full. Prices for retail were ranging from $150-$250 and included a few dresses, jackets and colorful tops. There were a few boxes with Tees in all sizes for $35, and cashmere sweaters for $195. For Prabal – not the end of the world.

The sample racks – ahhhh… As I was leaving the sample sale, I bumped into a ShopDropper in the elevator and we spent the next few minutes analyzing the samples and comparing the sample sale to the one that took place last Spring. Prices went up and quality went down. There was a $75 rack and a $100 rack. The items on those racks either didn’t belong there or were held together with safety pins – we’re talking not wearable AT ALL. If you love the brand and are looking for a good cocktail dress, you should add this one to your list.

Shoes and Bags Galore at the Frances Valentine Sample Sale

frances valentine sample sale

We gave the Frances Valentine an 8 out of 10! Prices were better than at the last sample sale, about $50-$100 lower than last time and 60%-85% off retail. The showroom was lined with shoes (sandals, flats, heels and boots) that retailed from $95 to $150 and ranged from size 7 to size 12. Unfortunately, there were no half-sizes so folks like me had to go up or down a half a size.

The bags were awesome: canvas, leather and straw – large and small – priced between $75 and $150 as well as cute necklaces and jewels. If you are into funky feels and square toes and love the Frances Valentine brand, this sample sale is for you.

Beautiful Building, Uneventful Sale: The ALTUZARRA Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Altuzarra sample sale was held on the 14th floor of the Woolworth building down by City Hall. If you’re an NYC architecture nerd like me, you will really appreciate the beautiful interior as you pass through the lobby. Other than that the Altuzarra sample sale was uneventful. The sale felt more like a regular retail boutique rather than a sample sale. The clothing was very pretty as that brand always delivers nice designs. This sale is perfect if you are going for that urban chic look.

We rated the Altuzarra sample sale a 7 out of 10. Pricing was really confusing, and still quite high. There were only a few racks of clothing and a long table with knits and accessories. The best part of the sale was the shoes. They had a large variety of numerous sizes. If you’re a huge fan of the brand, then check it out. (or if you just want an excuse to go inside the Woolworth building) Happy shopping!

Fashion Redone Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Solid Stripped Uncategorized

Solid Striped x Redone Sample Sale: All Seasons Under One Roof

By: Cristina Martin

Solid Striped and Redone joined together to bring us a fabulous sample sale.  Solid and Striped is all swimsuits and a few bags. Browse through a few racks of one-pieces and several bins of separates. If you are looking for a super cute bathing suit for some fun Insta pics, then this is the sale for you.

On the other hand, if you have the body where you need a bathing suit that has support, then skip this sale. The suits were very colorful and fun! There were also quite a few high-waisted options. This sale is also better if you’re into mixing and matching because you will have to dig to find a matching set.

Not into bathing suits right now? Shop Redone. Redone had racks of denim. You can find jeans and denim skirts and shorts. You can also pick up some cute graphic tees and sweaters. We rated the Solid Striped x Redone sample sale an 8 out of 10. Prices were decent. The space was huge so there was plenty of room to shop and no lines! Check it out and pick up something for now and next summer. Happy shopping!
