Prive Sample Sale

Chelsea Market sample sales never disappoint! The Prive sample sale featured summer clothing and swim for both men and women. Chelsea Market has a huge space, so there was plenty of merchandise form a variety of brands to choose from. There are racks of swim for both men and women in so many colors. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up for next year, or that tropical getaway in January. The Prive sample sale also had a dresses, tops, cute pants, and skirts. For the gentlemen, you can choose from tops, trousers, denim and accessories. Prices were also very reasonable!

We rated the Prive sample sale a 8 out of 10. Pros were of course the fabulous clothing, huge selection, and affordable prices. The only con was the fact that it is mostly summer, you only have a few weeks at best to use them before the items go in storage. Don’t loose all hope, some items can definitely be used for fall/early winter. Happy shopping!

Cravin’ Some Carven Sample Sale

Carven Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Labor Day Sale Early Access! Receive 30-75% off sitewide with code TAKE30 at LastCall.com. Offer Valid 8/28.

Carven is a brand we all love, so when the Carven sample sale showed up on our feed, we jumped! We had to travel all the way to the west side, beyond the subway, for this one. So, the stakes were high! The room was fairly small but jammed packed with clothing, shoes, and accessories. The Carven sample sale featured both men’s and women’s clothing, however there was no formal changing room. Everything was strikingly beautiful. From coats to dresses, we were impressed. You can shop very simple, elegant pieces to embellished and funky accent pieces. You can definitely shop for any occasion at the Carven sample sale.

We rated the Carven sample sale a 7 out of 10. Carven lost points at pricing. Yes, all the pieces were stunning, but the prices were still just so high. It was a also very confusing. Women’s items were as marked. Items that had prices written on the tag were considered samples. Apparently, these are already marked down $70. Items with the the price written on a colored round sticker are regular stock items. Everything was mixed together, so you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. Men’s items were pretty confusing as well. They had a price list, but that didn’t match what was on the tags. Word of advice, ask a sales associate for accurate pricing.

If you’re down to splurge, the Carven sample sale is worth the visit. Happy shopping!

Fashion Michelle Waugh Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Winter is Coming at the Michelle Waugh Sample Sale

Michelle Waugh sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Even though it is currently over 85º in New York City, fall and winter are just around the corner. To help us all prepare, we stopped by the Michelle Waugh sample sale. The sale was held at their NYC showroom and featured a rack of discounted coats and blazers. Their pieces are all 100% cashmere and would be perfect for when the temperature finally drops. The staff was extremely helpful and discussed some of the pieces and explained their features.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10 because while the selection of coats and outerwear was beautiful, there was something to be desired price wise. The least expensive piece that I could find was a $330 coat, which is a steep price for a cashmere coat that can’t be worn in sleet or snow.

Let us know if you’ll be stopping by the Michelle Waugh sample sale in the comments below!

Fashion Mascioni Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

Give Your House a Makeover for a Change at the Mascioni Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We spend the day shopping for ourselves and neglect other responsibilities like our home. Well, the Mascioni sample sale takes care of that. Mascioni is known for their linen and towels. You can find Mascioni bedding in major hotels around the world. Talk about a vacation at home! Now your home can be as chic as you!

This is the first time we’ve heard of a Mascioni sample sale. The space was tiny and everything was packed away in cardboard boxes. You actually had to ask a sales associate to retrieve an item. That is so uncomfortable. If you’re one of those shoppers that wants to look at everything before you make your final decision, this may be a really awkward sale for you. Prices were good. You can scoop up a king set for $150 – $200.  However, we think it’s worth checking out if you can take out 20 minuets of your day. Happy shopping!

Aside from the fact that you have to wait for an hour and a half to get into the Opening Ceremony sale and then another hour to check out, the sale is amazing and we gave it a 9 out of 10. There is plenty of merchandise: shoes, sneakers, boots, tops, outerwear, sweaters, dresses, skirts and pants. All items selling for 70% to 90% off. We found plenty of great deals for less than $100, and the styles and designs are cutting edge. The sale has plenty of sizes and options for both men and women.

The Dion Lee sample sale was one of the few that got a 9 out of 10 – amazing merchandise at phenomenal prices. Dion lee is an Australian high-end contemporary designer. This was her 1st sample sale in NYC. The prices were solid at $40-$150 that retail for way over a thousand: lots of dresses, a few jumpsuits, knits that cost no more than $60, pants that cost no more than $70, and shirts were $50. This is a brand for the edgy sexy cool girl – definitely a ‘go’!

We checked out the Dreams on Air and found that it had it’s good moments and less good moments, which is why we gave is a 5 out of 10. If you like unique pieces – then definitely go. So the good news is that the pieces were quite unique and interesting: lots of colors, flow materials, and vintage-inspyred styles. While the prices were 80%-90% off, it was still hard to find anything for less than 80%. Photos and details below – enjoy!

Misha Nonoo Sample Sale is Definitely a NoNo

misha nonoo sample sale ny

ASOS.com USA

We were greatly disappointed by the Misha Nonoo sample sale. While we love the brand itself and the current collection, overpriced ancient samples is not precisely what we were expecting. Items were ooollldddd and looked extremely dated, and prices were only 50% off retail! That’s not sample sale pricing.

If you care about saving time and money and aren’t obsessed with every single Misha Nonoo style, this one is a pass. Stay home and save your money for some of the great sales that are coming up.
