Nearly 90% Off at The Altuzarra Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to head all the way downtown to check out the Altuzarra Sample Sale. While Altuzarra hosts the sample sale themself, so the discounts go as high as 90% off (we are drooling).

The sale featured tons of current season merchandise as well as past season merchandise. The Altuzarra sale was very organized and separated by the current versus old season merchandise. The pricing on the past seasons were amazing, nearing to 90% off retail. They had a lot of availability in terms of stock and sizing. While the current season merchandise was on the pricier side, there was a nice selection. There were tons of shoes available, including boots, lace up heels and funky pumps.The Altuzarra Sample Sale also featured a decent selection of bags and accessories.

Overall, we rated this sale an 8 out of 10. Altuzarra is one of the remaining brands that hosts their sample sale in house (and we are so happy about it). We recommend you stop by and check it out!

Wait…What Did You Say? An Alexander McQueen Sample Sale?!

Frst off, our followers are literally CIA/FBI/Law & Order SVU spies. We had some of our amazing informants catch wind of an Alexander McQueen Sample Sale. Yes, you just read that right, an Alexander McQueen Sample Sale. Just to clear the air, the sale is private (hence invitation required). Here is everything they told us so we could tell you!

There is no other way to say this, but the pricing was literally insane. We heard that there was a good selection of bags this morning but it was cleared out extremely fast. They had the classic skull clutch in a couple of different varieties. The bags ranged from $75 to $300. The shoes were priced all under $100 and that includes boots (excuse me while I cry myself to sleep tonight). Here is the real kicker, tops and bottoms were priced at $50 dollars! While dresses and gowns ranged from $100 to $500 (yup, even runway). We also heard that there was a decent selection of costume jewelry, belts and other accessories. Time to phone a friend and get that invite to the McQueen Sale.

APL Sample Sale is Already Cleared Out

By: Jacqueline Munro

The APL sample sale started today, but all of the most generic sizes are already sold out. Unless you wear a 5-5.5 or 9.5-11 it is very unlikely that you’ll find anything. I only saw one size 7, and it was the ugliest sneaker I’ve ever seen. The staff members told me that they’re not restocking either, which is a total bummer.

All of the sneakers are $75, unless you’re buying a cashmere pair;  those will cost you $95. There are a ton of options as far as colors go, but if you’re looking for neutrals and dark colors they’re few and far in between. But most importantly, I’m disappointed in the discounts. A sample sale price of $75 for a $140 pair of sneakers is just not good enough. I’m not surprised though given that 260 is hosting the sale. Overall I rated the sale a 5/10, and I’m sure you can understand why.

Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale Part 2

By: Riva Neumann 

Everyone remembers the annual Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale that happened only a short while ago at 260, so when I heard that there was ANOTHER one at Rebecca Minkoff Soho location happening this week, you bet I rushed over there on day 1 to see what it was all about, and trust me, I was not disappointed. Bags ranged from $50-$175, with most being around $100-$125, including the newest addition to my ever growing collection of bags. Everything was neatly laid out by style with a separate table for sample bags, ranging from $30-$75, with most being $50.

They also had a nice selection of clothes, including ready to wear and some sample pieces, as well as shoes. They also had a lot of sizes available which I did not expect but was very happy to see. Ready to wear ranged from $30 for tees to $225 for leather pieces. They also had some Uri Minkoff pieces available as well as small leather goods.

Overall, I gave this sale a 9/10. Rebecca Minkoff hasn’t disappointed me yet with a sample sale and I always walk away with a new bag!

Jill Stuart Sample Sale The Place for Gorgeous Dresses

By: Riva Neumann 

The Jill Stuart Sample Sale had really amazing dresses and a huge selection for all occasions at some heavily discounted prices. Prices for dresses ranged from $55-$125, with most being either $55 (short dresses) or $75 (long dresses). Other dresses included samples for $95 and stock dresses for $125. They also had some bathing suits and pajama sets but honestly not a lot. They had some nice ready to wear pieces as well as great shoes, not a lot though but what they had was really good.

Jill Stuart also had a seemingly random assortment of watches and beauty, and by beauty I mean some lipstick for $10, not super exciting but very cute as a last minute something to pick up on your way out. Overall, I gave this sale a 8/10, lots available for really good prices and everything was in really good condition.

Dr Jart +, Stila, Tocca , Artis Sample Sale is the Place For All Your Skincare Needs

 By: Riva Neumann 

The Dr Jart +, Stila, Tocca , Artis Sample Sale had just about everything having to do with skincare at really good prices. Dr Jart + sets ranged from $29-$45 while single items (like facemasks) were only $2-$10. When I went, the tables were full of every type of skincare imaginable but head on over quick, they tend to sell out FAST. Tocca had a lot of perfume sets for $15 as well as hand creams, candles and more.

Artis had an amazing assortment of brushes ranging from $18 for some single brushes and $250 for a 10 piece brush set. The Stila selection was really great, the amount of highlighters, eyeshadows and lipstick would make any makeup guru happy. I love their highlighters and love the amount of shimmer in them. Their velvet lipsticks were also a hit, at only $8 I would grab one in every color. The highlighters were $12 and the liquid eyeshadows were $8.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8/10. I would hurry soon, this sale tends to sell out fast!

M. Gemi Sample Sale, More Like Meh Gemi Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The M. Gemi Sample Sale had a lot available in terms on shoes and clothes. Everything was very organized and it was easy to find sizes and brands. The discounts on shoes was really good, ranging from $55 for sandals to $125 for boots. There was also a big selection of clothes from Ramy Brook, Yumi Kim, Saylor and more. The discounts on those brands were also pretty good.

A lot of the clothes at the sale I recognized from previous sample sales so if you missed out last time, now is your chance! I think this is a good sale for those who know and love these brands.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7 out of 10, I personally didn’t find the sale to be too exciting but for those who love these brands, head on over for some good discounts!
