The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Balenciaga Sample Sale – Madness

By: Ashley Randall 

To make things very clear, the Balenciaga Sample Sale is invite only and not open to the public. Shoutout to our AMAZING followers for sending us all this information. Handbags started at $149 and ranged to $449. We heard there was a very limited selection of city bags and they were the first to go. The ready to wear had lots of sweaters, tops and dresses but a small selection of outerwear. As well there was a huge variety of wallets and small leather pouches for sale. The shoe scene featured lots of boots, no sight of sneakers, slides or sandals. Look through all the amazing photos to see what you are missing!

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!

Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale – Is It Overhyped?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale all the way over in Brooklyn. This was the first time that this sale has happened since 2016. Everybody is dying to know if the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale is worth the hype and we now have the insider scoop.

First off, the sale is held in Brooklyn so you’re gonna plan accordingly. While I was first expecting a mob scene, it was actually not that busy. They have designer clothing ranging from IRO to Stella McCartney and Prada plus everything in between. The merchandise is organized by size and type and the staff is very helpful. The pricing on most items is good, but then again a $2,000 dress for $450 is still expensive. Secondly, there are no shoes and accessories. Say what? Yes, let me repeat myself, there are no shoes and accessories at this sale. As well there are no dressing rooms so you have to try on your finds in plain sight.

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10. They have amazing high end designer merchandise, you just have to have the patience to dig through the racks. If you are hunting for a nice Paco Robanne dress or a Valentino matching set, you should look no further.

The Nautica Sample Sale Prices are Lower than my bank Account Balance!

By: Jacqueline Munro

At the Nautica Sample Sale, almost all of the items are dirt cheap. There is a larger selection for men than women, and a lot of the items look the same, but the prices are impossible to beat!!!

Nautica is a great brand to shop for right now given that summer is right around the corner. If you’re into the preppy style but don’t feel like pointlessly wasting your money on Vineyard Vines, this sale is perfect for you! There are lots of great options for men, women, and children; and they’re all very affordable! In addition to bathing suits, t-shirts, button downs, and sweaters, they also have a selection of home furnishing products ranging from towels (bath, beach, and hand) to umbrellas!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7/10. The prices are great and the selection is decent, but it was slightly crowded with aggressive shoppers which made the experience a little less enjoyable. But for such good discounts, I’m willing to throw some elbows… Are you?

The Cinq á Sept Sample Sale has Gorgeous, Affordable Pieces

By: Jacqueline Munro

At the Cinq á Sept sample sale, there a lot of beautiful pieces throughout the well organized showroom. Unfortunately, though there are not nearly as many sample pieces as there are production pieces (which are more expensive).

The Cinq á Sept sample sale is one that I’ve been looking forward to for a while; I absolutely adore the brand. Although the production prices are not ideal, the prices of the sample items definitely make up for them. Now despite the fact that the samples are not as plentiful as the production pieces, there are still some really cute items. Obviously, there are beautiful dresses at this sale, but all of my favorite items are fall into the outerwear categories. From fur detailed, long coats to embellished military style jackets, you’re guaranteed to find an outerwear piece that you love.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. I would really like to see more sample pieces and a drop in the production prices, but I can happily say that I have no complaints about any of the staff members or the organization of the showroom. If you like the brand or are looking to spruce up your wardrobe, I’d say it is worth checking out this sale.

By: Riva Neumann 

The Elie Tahari Sample Sale had a lot of product available at a 70% discount! The sale was super organized by size and product and they had so many sizes available that was so great to see. They had racks of small, medium and large so finding sizes was a literal breeze since the racks were all separated and clearly marked.The showroom was very spacious which made for a pleasant shopping experience. Most dresses I found stayed under the $200 mark which is SO WORTH IT. They had gorgeous gowns that mostly stayed under $1,000 and I even found ones for $300!

The shoes were all $59 and were equally organized by size. There weren’t as many shoes available but what was there was pretty cool and were mostly sneakers. They had a very small mens section but it was mostly womenswear at the sale.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8.5/10. Head on over for some really great deals and to stock up on your summer wardrobe!
