If the price is right on a beautiful wool coat in the dead heat of summer, you’ll find me storing the coat until the perfect weather. For those who look ahead, you need to stop by the LoveShackFancy sample sale happening now! LoveShackFancy has beautiful pieces that just SCREAM summer in the Hamptons. The pieces are bright and whimsical with no lack of lace and ruffles.

We gave this sale a 9 out of 10! The LoveShackFancy sample sale scored so high as the inventory was amazing and the discounts were ones that can not be passed on!

If you’re still in search of the perfect outfit for those holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, then make your way over to the Jil Sander, Brock Collection, Jonathan Simkhai, and Fleur du Mal sample sale at 260! The sale is FILLED with the perfect duds to turn your friends green with envy. The pieces were organized on racks by designer with tables of shoes in the back. Interestingly, the shoes were from See By Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, and Rochas. None of the brands were advertised by 260.

While Jil Sander was the headlining designer of this sale, the real gems were from Fleur du Mal and Jonathan Simkhai. The pieces by both brands were beautiful in both style and quality. We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 because of the beautiful inventory and the decent discounts. The rating could have been higher, but 260 was lining people out in the cold even though the sales floor was not full by any means.

The Retrofete Sample Sale: It’s Time to Partaay!

By: Cristina Martin

With NYE right around the corner, you need to start thinking about outfit choices. The Retrofete sample sale is the perfect place to get some inspo since they are known or their fun, glittery style. Shop for the perfect cocktail dress. Many of the dresses had some type of glitter or sequin element to it, so it’s the ideal opportunity to stand out at your NYE party. The Retrofete had an extensive range of sizes, but not a large selection to choose from. You can look through about five racks and defiantly find a lot of repeats.

The staff was lovely and there was no line to get inside. Prices ranged from $50 – $200. So there are definitely options depending on your budget. Retrofete is also an up and coming brand, so you may just be on the cusp of something new. Get a head start on your New Year’s resolutions and try something different. Maybe your outfit making you the center of attention may  land you that midnight kiss. xoxo Happy shopping!

Fashion Marchesa Neem Khan Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Shelly and Renee ShopDrop

Early Access at the Marchesa and Neem Khan Sample Sales

Marchesa Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The November VIP program kicked off with the Marchesa and Neem Khan sample sales. Through our VIP program, you pay one price for the entire month and unlock early access to numerous sample sales. It’s a sweet deal if we say so ourselves. The Marchesa sale opens to the public officially on Sunday. Hosted by Shelly&Rene, the sale was filled with dresses from both notte and couture collections. Racks were packed with dresses, so you have to scour through them to find what you’re looking for. Additionally, the dresses are bagged, so that’s an extra barrier to get through.

We noticed that prices were definitely higher at this sale. They’ve gone up from previous seasons. The addition of Neem Khan also adds some more options for you to choose from. The space is rather small, so VIP’ers were lucky to shop with ease. We are predicting madness on opening day. Definitely check out the sale if you have an upscale event coming up. A Marchesa dress will never disappoint. There’s still time to sign up for our VIP program here and keep an eye out for December. Happy shopping!

Smells like the Holidays at the Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample Sale

Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

I love nothing more than a good oil diffuser. They have the fragrant power of a traditional candle, without the house-burning capabilities…

This week 260 hosted the Nest Fragrances and Manduka yoga supplies sample sale. At 6:00pm, during a light rain shower, there was a line down the block and yet barely any people shopping indoors. There were candles, lotions, soaps, reed diffusers, and liquidless diffusers. All of the scents seems to follow a holiday them. There were pine scents, vanilla scents, a warm subtle cinnamon, and a sugar cookie scent. Many of the products, including the Saharan Spice, Birchwood Pine, and Sugar Cookie, can be found online. While the discounts are not astronomical, these products are current.

The Manduka section was much smaller. There were plenty of yoga matts and foam boxes, and four racks with yoga apparel

We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 for the current and seasonally appropriate inventory.

Wrinkles at the Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale

Vivienne Westwood sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Usually, for a popular brand’s sample sale I can understand the high price points. But at the Vivienne Westwood sample sale, the quality did not match the price points. The sale featured mens and women’s apparel, shoes, and accessories. When walking through the apparel racks, I noticed that a large number of the women’s pieces were wrinkled and misshapen. I could be alone is this, but I would never spend $300 to buy a wrinkled blouse. Hopefully this is not a trend that will be seen in the rest of the inventory.

We gave this sale a 5 out of 10 because of the condition of the clothes, the high prices, and the lack of sizing. Many items were the only ones of their style and appeared to be very old. Shopping this sale reminded me of shopping at a second-hand store, but with way higher prices…

Inside the Chloe Sample Sale Fall 2018

Chloe sample sale fall 2018 review

The second ever Chloe sample sale was quite the spectacle: long lines and strict rules. 260 staff was ever so careful to ensure that no one take pictures. Instead, our team had to turn on the memory and find items that can later be pulled from different sites.

After scouring a number of sites, we’re including ‘spotted’ items below. Yes, there were bags there – between 50% and 70% off retail, shoes going as cheap as $100, shoes 70% off, RTW 80% off. In terms of seasons, also coats, dresses, shoes, bags & jewelry. We think you’ll love it. Details below.

A Hot Mess: Rebecca Taylor Sample Sale

Rebecca Taylor sample sale shopdrop review

I was on the train at 7:20AM this morning trying to make it for the 8AM opening of the Rebecca Taylor sample sale. The sale was just as I remembered: one hot mess. Bags were piled in the floor on the corner, and the room was packed with frantic women grabbing at racks and stripping naked on the floor.

That reflected two things: selection was pretty good and prices were AMAZING. Face it, Rebecca Taylor jackets retail for $475 to $550, on sale maybe… maybe $350. At the sale, they are 75. That’s how good the prices are. The tweed dresses, tops, skirts, pants, shoes, sweaters – everything was there. Mostly Summer & Spring items selling for $30-$150. A few pieces of jewelry and clutches at checkout & that’s that.

To be honest, this is one of my favorite sample sales – has that authentic feel. Definitely check it out.

Get Your Dress Game On at the Parker Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Summer is back at the Parker sample sale.  There are so many casual and evening dresses to choose from in their large, and chic midtown showroom. If you have a bunch of weddings coming up, this is the sale for you. The most expensive dresses were evening gowns at $180! We can’t even believe it. Parker had a mix of samples and regular stock. Dresses weren’t the only thing on the menu; you can also shop tops, bottoms, jumpsuits, rompers, outerwear, and coverups. Most of the sample were in great condition and $50 or under.

We rated this sample sale an 8 out of 10. Merchandise was excellent: plenty of options and very beautiful pieces! Prices were also very fair. Most items are summer pieces, so you do have to wait until next year to sport it. On the other hand, with the holidays coming up you can stock up on dresses. Happy shopping!
