It’s a Full Moon at the Maje Sample Sale

Maje Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Don’t get me wrong, the Maje sample sale was actually pretty good, but it was a madhouse in there! Let’s chat about the sale first, and then we will get to the experience.

We rated the Maje sample sale an 8 out of 10. They had a ton of merchandise, and from what it looked like, there was more downstairs. You should have no problem finding your size. The clothing was also very cute. I wanted to leave there with almost everything! You can shop for every season as well. Coats and sweaters for fall/winter, and dresses and skirts for spring/summer. All beautiful! It gets a little tricky when it comes to pricing. The percentage off was actually pretty good! Most items that were retail $300 – $400 were selling for under $100. You can skip the fur coats. Yes, they went from slightly over $1,000 to $495, but you’re paying over $500 (after tax) for fur coats that are just okay. There are better fur sample sales out there, just hold tight. Mini skirts were another thing to skip. They were all SO cute! However, not so well priced. Pants were priced at $55 (more material), and skirts were priced at $75 (less material). You’re not getting the best bang for your buck. Shorts were also priced the same as pants which require less material than pants as well. Some food for thought.

I don’t know what is going on today, but shoppers were C R A Z Y! As usual, there was a line outside. Even though this wasn’t an iconic, insane 260 line, it must have still driven people nuts. Inside shoppers were pushing and shoving, and no one was apologizing to each other. I must have gotten hit several times. Shoppers were very aggressive when going through the clothing. At one point the 260 staff had to make an announcement to the shoppers reminding them that this is luxury fashion, and asking them not to throw things on the floor. They also had to ask shoppers to put items back in their original location. WOW… I don’t know if there’s a full moon coming up or what.

The Maje sample sale is definitely worth checking out. If you’re not dying for Maje right this second, then wait until the crowds die down a bit and for price reductions. Happy shopping, and may the odds ever be in your favor.

260 Sample Sale Equinox Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Be the Best Dressed at Spin with the Equinox Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Let’s be honest, none of us can really afford an Equinox membership, let alone shop at their store. Well, there is an exception to every rule. The Equinox sample sale is back at 260 Sample Sale. You can choose from an array of men’s and women’s athleisure. The Equinox sample sale included tops, leggings, sweatpants, outerwear, underwear, sport bras, and accessories starting at 50% off. The best deal was on the sport bras. You can steal good quality sport bras for pretty cheap. We even found one for $21! Sport bras also had the largest size variety, considering most of the clothing ran on the smaller size.

We rated the Equinox sample sale a 6 out of 10. It was pouring out this Tuesday, and although I’ve personally seen the store much busier, the 260 staff still kept a small line outside. That is just plain wrong to do that in today’s monsoon! They had some really nice and cozy items from many popular brands. You will definitely be the best dressed on a budget at your next fitness class. They also had some exercise equipment!  On the other hand, the sizing ran mostly on the smaller size. The discount could have been a bit higher as well. Our sources told us that 260 will be restocking this week. Let’s also hope for price reductions as well. Happy shopping!

Step into Animal Kingdom at the Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale

Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Walking into Clothingline’s Roberto Cavalli sample sale made me feel like I was on set at Animal Planet. Wow! Is the only way I can describe it. (I don’t mean that in a good way.) The clothing was absolutely horrendous! Gowns were lined up against the wall with bright colors, intense beading, and crazy patterns. The racks in the center contained more dresses with beading and beaded fringe. We also found a variety of snakeskin clothing. Vests, dresses, jackets, and skirts contained this reptilian print. We understand animal print is coming back this fall, but I don’t think you really want a snakeskin fringe jacket with matching skirt.

Men’s was no picnic either. The animal theme continued. We now step into the southern Sahara desert to find a men’s suit with lion heads printed on the jacket and pants. You can also shop tops and bottoms of various bright colors, animal prints, and rhinestones among others. Men are actually in better shape at the Roberto Cavalli sale. Men can score undershirts and briefs in all sizes for $15. Additionally, men can pick up leather dress shoes and sneakers for $149.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli sample sale a 3 out of 10. Honestly, the sale lost the majority of its points because of the hideous clothing. Major deductions also came from the pricing. All items were 85% off the MSRP. However, prices were mostly still in the $1,000 range. We didn’t find any women’s items for less than $500. Unless you want to grab some men’s shoes or baics, the Roberto Cavalli sample sale is a hard pass. Stay home on this rainy Tuesday, and save your money for another time. Happy shopping!

This post is dedicated to all the snakes that gave their lives to make this awful sample sale possible… RIP

Denim overload at the 3 x 1 Sample Sale

3 x 1 sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

As someone who basically wears jeans at any and all opportunities, I was excited to stop by the 3 x 1 sample sale today. Before heading over, I had to RSVP for the sale by email. Even though I emailed the night before, I never received a response and just had my fingers crossed that I was good to go. Thankfully, all I needed was an ID to get into the building and head upstairs to the sale.

The showroom while small, had plenty of merchandise to shop. The product, a mix of jeans, shirts, and jumpsuits and dresses was organized by size on racks and by style in boxes. The pieces each had a sticker which marked the price. Prices were $25, $50, $75, $100 with a majority of the denim $50 – $100. These are definitely major discounts from the original selling prices, which are around $235, but the jeans were not cheap. Due to the amount of inventory, the helpful organization, and the steep prices we gave the sale a 6 out of 10. If you’re interested in stopping by, make sure to RSVP by sending an email to wholesale@3×1.us, AND bring your ID to get into the building!

Diptyque Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Low quantities at the Diptyque Sample Sale

Diptyque sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

I have a confession to make: I don’t quite get all the fanfare over Diptyque and their products. Sure, they smell nice and come in chic bottles, but their prices are crazy high. I just can’t fathom spending over $35 on something that will not last. Which is why I was excited to stop by the Diptyque sample sale held at Century 21 to see if I could grab a candle at a more reasonable price. The sale opened at 8 a.m, and already at 8:33 a.m., we were receiving information that the there was almost no merchandise left and that the line was around the block. When I stopped by around 12 p.m., there was not much left. While there was a limit of 10 candles per customer, there was mostly Christmas sets and a few bottles of perfume left. There are still two more days left for the sale, but I’m not sure if there will be enough merchandise for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Due to the still high prices and the low inventory we gave the Diptyque sample sale a 6 out of 10. It seems doubtful that there will be price reductions as the merchandise was moving quickly. There were also people at the sale who were obvious resellers. Besides letting them check out 10 items at a time, they weren’t doing much to stop them.

260 Sample Sale Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop The Line

Ironically No Lines at The Line Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Since everyone and their mother flocked to the LXR and Co sample sale, The Line sample sale had… no line. The Line had absolutely beautiful pieces from various designers. You can shop from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana. If you were a big Protagonist fan, then you were in luck. Protagonist filled the racks. You can also shop home, accessories, books, and shoes.

We rated The Line sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The selection was magnificent and the space wasn’t that crowded. Prices were a bit high, but with good markdowns from 70% – 75%. The Line sample sale scored most of their points in the fantastic selection of merchandise. Opening day of The Line sample sale was the same day that NYC got hurricane Florance rain. The 260 staff had the nerve to kick people out in the pouring rain. Shoppers just wanted to wait a little bit until it passed. The 260 staff, instead of asking everyone nicely to not block the door, decided to yell at everyone to leave because they have umbrellas. In that monsoon, an umbrella will not help much. However, as usual, that’s 260 being their usual rude selves. Happy shopping!
