The If Soho Sample Sale Has Us Wondering IF it’s Worth It

If New York Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The If Soho sample sale was held in the basement of their store. Let me tell you, it should stay the basement, and never see the light of day. The clothing that was for sale was old fashioned and plain. This stuff may have been cool five years ago, but it’s not cutting it now. Don’t go through your archives and pass them off as a ‘sample sale’ today. The prices were out of control! You can barely find anything for under $100. We even came across a shirt for $430! The one item we dug up for under $100 was $93. It was a regular striped t-shirt… You’ve got to be kidding me…

Don’t overpay for basics. Get those at your local H&M and Zara. Pictures of the best from the worst are below. Happy shopping!

Beautiful Florals at the Kas Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The KAS sample sale features their classic hand-stitched, Indian-inspired prints. They had a variety of options from the traditional tops and bottoms to beach cover-ups and kaftans. There were about 5 or 6 racks with sample sizes 4 and 6. What I didn’t like about the sale was the fact that prices weren’t listed on each item. After I was let in the store, the sales associate explained that prices began at $20, and to ask about specific pricing. Another shopper had a ton of clothing in her hand, and stood there as he assigned prices to each item. As a jaded New Yorker, how can I trust that the $40 shorts I like, aren’t $20 for another shopper. I guess we will never know.

If you’re into patterns and florals, check out the KAS sample sale. You can never have too many pieces that are hand-stitched pieces. Happy shopping!

Battle of the Best Denim – The Frame Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Frame Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. Kinda of ironic that 260 is hosting yet another jean company, last week was J Brand so let’s see how this one compares.

The Frame Sample Sale had a shocking selection of sample pieces which were all 50 dollars. The was a lot of variety in both men’s and women’s denim.  While the price was higher for jeans, starting at 75 dollars, compared to J Brand which began at 70 dollars. The jean shorts were 50 dollars which is a steal compared to the retail price.

Overall, we rated the Frame Sample Sale a 6.5 out of 10. The sample pieces were great but the pricing on all the other merchandise was way to high. If a male friend, relative or significant other needs a pair of denim, I’d check it out!  In the battle for the best denim, who do you think should win?

The Sandy Liang Flash Sale Folks Really Thinks They Are Chanel

By: Cristina Martin 

Prices were beyond out of control at the Sandy Liang flash sale. They were so high, you felt like you were at a vintage Chanel sale. On top of ridiculous pricing, there was also no air conditioning. If you’re able to take out a second mortgage and survive the heat stoke, you can finally shop at the Sandy Liang sample sale. The clothing had a really unique style to it, that made it look a little cheap.

However, the staff was really sweet. We only recommend you check it out if you are a major fan of the brand. If not, you aren’t missing much! Happy shopping!

Complete Disaster at the IRO Sample Sale

IRO Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We don’t even know what we walked into at the IRO sample sale. I guess the best word to describe it has to be, disaster. Prices were crazy high with the discount being only 30%. That percentage is insulting the sample sale shopper’s intelligence. We know better that is not a sample sale discount, and barely even a regular sale discount. The items on sale were complete crap, and there were barely any sizes in stock. The best item were the jeans. However, they were still $70. You can find great jeans for cheaper at Topshop. This sale is only on for two days. By the time you get there it’s practically over.

On top of it all, the staff was more concerned with entertaining their friends then minding the sale. The IRO sample sale wasted our time don’t waste yours. Happy shopping elsewhere.

A Little Something Special at the Sarah Flint Sample Sale

Sarah Flint Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Just like any other sale, the Sarah Flint sample sale is offering different style of shoes for $200 or below. At this sale, Sarah Flint threw in something special: a little twist to the classic BOGO deal.

If you buy two pairs, you get half off on your third pair. If you buy four pairs, you get the forth free. How sweet is that?! 

The shoes were all arranged by sizes at the Sarah Flint sample sale. Perfect for quick and easy browsing. The sizes began at 35 and concludes with 42. There were also plenty of half sizes available. Size 37 had the largest selection. All other sizes had a great selection as well. Popular styles, like the Natalie, were no where to be found. There was also a shortage on sneakers.

Our sources tell us that the Sarah Flint sample sale will not be restocking. If you need a new pair a shoes get there fast! Happy shopping!

Thank you to Keiko from nykeiko.com for information and pictures.

Men are the Clear Winners at the Reiss London Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

While the Reiss London sample sale does have both men and women’s, the men’s were far better. Sorry ladies, it’s best to shop for your beau, and perhaps you will find something for yourself. The Reiss London sample sale is best for men who need to add to there professional wardrobe. There were a variety of men’s suits. You’re also covered if the office is more on the casual side. The Reiss London sample sale also offered a great selection of business casual for men.

Women, there’s a sad selection for you. For the ladies, you can find mostly summer items. That doesn’t help much when you only have one month of real summer left. There were a number of skirts and professional dresses to choose from. However, we found them a bit frumpy. We feel like the quality at Reiss London is severely going down. They are starting to no longer feel luxurious. The prices were decent, but we are waiting for markdowns this Friday. If you have nothing else better to do and find yourself in the Flatiron district, check out the Reiss London sample sale. Happy shopping!

That’s SO New York: The Anthom Sample Sale

Anthom Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Shop local at the Anthom sample sale. This SoHo-based brand is online and in store, and so is their sample sale. This sale is perfect for you, if you’re looking to achieve that classic New York minimalism. Anthom’s style is very minimalist, feminine, and delicate. The pieces were very beautiful, especially the dresses. We’re a little disappointed with the discount. The Anthom sample sale is advertising up to 80% off, but the largest we found was 60%. Most items were in the $200 price range. Perhaps, you have to dig, I guess.

Anthom’s brick and mortar also has their militaristic touch. The staff seemed sweet, but at times you felt their eyes on you while you shopped. If you’re in SoHo, check it out! Especially, if you’re looking for something very New York that has that boutique vibe. Happy shopping!
