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!

Sferra Sample Sale

By: Cristina Matin 

The days are getting shorter, colder, and right before you know it, there will be snow on the ground. Visit the Sferra sample sale to get your bedroom set up for all those chilly days in bed watching Netflix. Sferra has high-quality, Italian linen that’ll make any bed cozy. Their style is more classic and simple. This will match perfectly in any minimalist’s home.

Prices were a bit high at the Sferra sample sale but fair for luxury linen. Bed sheets were between $100 – $350, duvet covers were around $115 – $365, decorative pillows are $75, robes are $30 – $50, and towels are between $5 and $40. To add a nice touch, there was a representative from Sferra present at the sale to answer any questions shoppers may have. Chelsea Market really knows how to put on a sale! They say you spend a third of your life sleeping, why not do it in luxury. Happy shopping!

Markups at the Karen Millen Sample Sale??

karen millen sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Today we stopped by the Karen Miller sample sale at Clothingline. When I first walked in I was immediately impressed! There was plenty of merchandise, which was organized by size. While most of the inventory was quite summery, there was plenty of pants, skirts, and tops which could make the transition from late summer to fall and winter. I did notice some minor damages on a few white dresses, but there were other pieces of the same style.

It was only when I started looking at the more specialty pieces that I started to notice some discrepancies in prices. I had found this beautiful (faux) fur vest that was the last one. While all the signs said that outerwear was $150, the original sales tag from Bloomingdales showed the last selling price of the jacket was $124.99. Okay, so I thought it must have been a mistake. So I found someone who worked at Clothingline and asked them to let me know how much the item would cost, the tag price or the sign price. To my shock, I was told that the vest would be $150 despite to tag price. I understand that for the ease of selling the merchandise, all styles are generally the same price, but for them to sell a piece for $26 more than it was being sold before is insane.

We rated the Karen Millen sample sale at Clothingline an 8 out of 10. While generally the sale seemed to have great deals and plenty of inventory, the discrepancy in prices was ridiculous.

Feedback from the Rodarte Sample Sale

Rodarte Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Again, we thank our wonderful users for the feedback.

The Rodarte sample sale surprisingly had no line to get inside this time around. Runway styles were marked as priced from $500 – $3,000. Fur jackets and beaded pieces were $2,000 and up. There was a very limited selection for shoes. All shoes were $500, with the exception of one pair of size 8.5 w Superga x Rodarte sneakers for only $75.

One bargain bin was filled with $20 bright-colored tees, while standard colored tees (white, black, navy, grey, pink) were $65. Fan favorite sweatshirts are $80. Sweatpants and hoodies are $90. Tank tops are $45. There was separate tables for pants, knits and accessories, which were all price as marked. Studded belts in black or white were $375. Jeans are $50. We spotted one large gray Coach x Rodarte purse going for $500. Considering that this collaboration is over, this is a hard to find pieces like these. You can also choose from an array of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and brooches. All were marked with a red sticker at $50. There was one pair of teal Oliver peoples x Rodarte for $100. In all, you can find some great deals if you take the time to look through each piece. One lucky shopper snagged the only $7 lingerie top from the ready to wear rack!

Special thank you to Nykeiko for the detailed feedback.

The Aysha Sample Sale: Maybe for Your Grandmother

By: Cristina Martin

There isn’t much to say about the Aysha sample sale, considering only TWO racks were on sale in the entire store! The selection from those two racks was horrendous. The dresses were very matronly, or reminded you of something the mother of the bride would wear. Dressed were priced at $50 and the jewelry was over $100. That is fair pricing for that brand. On the positive side, there was no line. That should make up for the fact that the elevator took a lifetime to get you to the sale. Word of advice, skip the Aysha sale. Happy shopping!

Channel You’re Inner Olsen Twin at the Elizabeth and James Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

As always, Chelsea Market never disappoints. The Elizabeth and James sample sale is back once more this year. They first came to us not too long ago, in May. Perhaps, September is too early to have another sale. Don’t get us wrong, the sale wasn’t terrible, but the previous was better. The Elizabeth and James sample sale was definitely well-rounded. You can shop tops, bottoms, denim, jackets, and dresses. The sale lacked in breadth. There wasn’t a giant selection for each category. The brand clearly didn’t have enough merchandise to fill the large Chelsea Market space, because half the store was filled with various men’s wear.

We gave the Elizabeth and James sample sale a 7 out of 10. What they had was great, but they could of had more to choose from. Prices were slightly high on the men’s and Elizabeth James items. When attending a Chelsea Market Sale, you have to brave the Chelsea Market crowds. But, they were doing a great job on crowd control. The room was filled, but you didn’t feel overwhelmed. We definitely recommend you stop by and take a look at the Elizabeth and James sample sale. And some advice to the brand: wait just a little longer in between sales. Happy shopping!

ClothingLine Fashion Giorgio Armani Prada Review Robert Cavalli Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Tod's Tom Ford Versace

Classy and Funky Pieces at the MB Sample Sale for Men.

By Melanie Capruso

Today we braved the potential thunderstorms to stop by Clothingline’s MB Sample sale for Men. The sale featured different designers like Prada, Versace, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabana, Roberto Cavalli, and Tod’s. The largest selection was in shoes. There were four different tables all featuring shoes in different sizes. The shoes was a mix of your classic, standard loafers and dress shoes with some WILD animal print high top sneakers and blue Prada sandals (check out the pictures below, the shoes need to be seen…). Also, if you don’t see one in your size, check below the table as there is more. In the back of the sale there were a mix of different shirts. There were Roberto Cavalli polos and graphic tees and boxes upon boxes of Versace dress shirts all $35. 

We rated this sale a 6 out of 10 because while it was empty of people and full of pieces, the prices were still pretty high for all the shoes.

Improvements Have Been Made at the Rent the Runway Sample Sale

Rent the Runway Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We gave the last Rent the Runway sample sale a pretty dismal review. We think enough people complained (including us) to 260 about the quality of the merchandise. For the record, we still found damaged items, but not nearly as many as the last sale. Additionally, we didn’t spot any dirty clothing. Now, maybe they will listen to us about pricing. This is obviously used clothing. Prices NEED to be lowered more. Also, stop pricing things $49.98. It’s tacky. Make it either $49 or $50.

We rated the Rent the Runway sample sale a 5 out of 10. Where they improved in quality and there was no line out the door, they need to improve in price and use of space. This is one of the few sales that offers almost every size. 260 should run this sale out of their Wooster St. location, because it has a downstairs. Breaking up the sizes on two different floors will help east the chaos in store. Again, we found ourselves climbing over people to look through the racks. The other shoppers were vicious too! We were trying to shop and got so much attitude from the other shoppers. It was helpful to have the sale organized by size. It made our search a little easier. We also like that they have have a wide rage of sizes and styles. So you can really find something for anyone and any occasion. Don’t go out of your way for this. Wait for price reductions, or stop in if you have time or are in the area.  Happy shopping!

Shop from the Inside-Out at the Cosabella Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

You spend your life shopping for clothes, shoes, and accessories, but you have to think about getting something to go under all that. Think no further than the Cosabella sample sale, where you can find all your casual undergarment needs. You can shop for bras, underwear, and camisoles. But of course, what’s a sample sale with out shopping for things that everyone can see. At the Cosabell sample sale, you can also find bathing suit, PJ’s, robes, and more.

We rated the Cosabella sample sale an 8 out of 10. Everything was between $5 and $35. There were 7 racks full of clothing and numerous bins. They could have had more variety in sizing, with most items being a medium. On our way out, they gave us a water bottle. How cute is that?! Happy shopping!
