Starting tonight, Showroom Seven will be hosting it’s first sample sale in collaboration with ShopDrop. We had the opportunity to check it out and here is our feedback: great pieces, high prices. If you are looking to discover new brands and unique pieces and price isn’t an issue, then this is a sale for you to check out. If you are looking for great prices, then the Shoe Box sample sale is probably better for you.
So below we are including photos from the event. Thanks to Maura and Swanky Savages for running the model & photography drill. Beautiful job! So while you could find some dresses for $39 from the Robin brand, most items that are really cool range in the $250 or $350 range. Tonight Fashion Sherlock is joining us and will take over our story on Instagram – make sure you are following us! For a list of brands at the sample sale, see our sample sale post from last week.
See images below – most items are one of a kind and come in single copies. There will be free champagne tonight. Can’t wait to see you there!

Get all the LemLem thats left! Refreshing sample sale today, August 17th, 2017
I just stopped in for some eye candy window retail at Lemlem’s sample sale located at the studio (3rd floor) on 495 Broadway (heart of Soho), which lasts until 7:00pm today. I must say, Lemlem is an airy fairy Hampton’s goddess, martini gal and fashion force to be reckoned with! To all of our shoppers, if anyone has a vacation on their schedule, stop in for Lemlem’s sale today! 75% off of almost everything including scarves, coverups and my new found favorite bracelets that are being sold at $10 a band, mixed with gold and rainbow silks, to layer up on your wrist. Lemlem you are such a breath of fresh air ! Amazing sales!
Other than Lemlem’s apparel showcasing its best of the best highlighter colors on soft linen sheer rompers, dresses, joggers and blouses, I can’t comment enough on how easy the shopping experience was. Everything was spaced out, deserving of their own spotlight and the chart below shows pricing for all accessory lovers 🙂 Upfront in your face like hey, no excuses now, buy me today!
Even though theres no private try on area, the minute you hold up one of Lemlem’s statement pieces in the mirror, the gold jewelry display is right beside you, and all of sudden you lose your marbles, —fair warning. Speaking of marble, there’s a beautiful gray marble table, displaying Lemlems very own summer staple, airy beach joggers! Definitely a buy! The pictures below scream, I’m not your boring gray sweatpants for the winter, wear me right now. Also, look out for the treasure box with the cute little bralets. Lemlem you have it all covered for the summer!
Fun Fact: Lemlem means to flourish or bloom in Amharic and is recognized through its handcrafted collection that inspire economic independence in the founder, Liya Kebede’s, native country Ethiopia, as well as, preserve the art of weaving.

Y-7’s first ever warehouse sale? I couldn’t believe it either, because it was executed to perfection! You can visit the Y-7 warehouse sample sale located at the original Hip-Hop Yoga Studio (Y7 HQ, 262 Bowery, 4th Floor, NY, NY) starting today Tuesday August 15th- Wednesday August 16th; and trust me when I say this, you feel the “namast-ay fly” aesthetic as soon as you walk in. Need I mention their too-good-to-be-true negotiation with the weather? I mean, the temptation to purchase a sweater on a rainy day like today from a vast selection of all-black comfy Y-7 sweatshirts/hoodies with trendy slogan designs?! Y-7 for the win!
But, lets back it up a bit, trekking 4 stair flights up to the warehouse; Y-7 definitely knows its customers, getting everyone to kick a sweat before the goods and glory sales. Ice-cold tea samples (RUNA) served right before the race to the racks is most definitely a well-thought-out refresher of choice, another check for Y-7. As you head inside, the atmosphere gets you bumping and flowing to the most popular genre of music in the U.S right now, Hip-Hop!! Yep, its pretty damn ideal.
I walked in with a mission, to get all the information on site on behalf of the ShopDrop team, and completely got distracted when I saw this Kanye sweater “inspo.” It was Kanye West in pretzel position, hell yeah!! Y-7 is definitely onto something, unique and genius! Lucky for me, there was only 1 small left, so I dropped everything and called grabs! Don’t worry, I took tons of pictures, just for you to see! I mean 40% off today? 50% off tomorrow? I couldn’t resist.
For the rest of the apparel, sizes range from XS-XL in most styles including the hoodies/sweatshirts/tour-style t-shirts, sweats, leggings and sports bras. The prices have taken a steep downfall from $250 retail to $16 or less in apparel and accessories (headbands, face towels, bookbags, candles, phone cases, beanie hats, pins). ShopDrop has you covered ! You definitely want to yoga, sleep, study, eat, netflix in this gear!
P.S. The best part of this sample sale is getting to know the brand! Y-7 established itself in 2013, opening studios all over NYC and LA and has been featured in all the best magazines, (Cosmo, Forbes, InStyle), including Vogue, quoting ” Yoga For People Who Put On Gangsta Rap and Handle It.” It truly cant get better than a recommendation from Vogue, you’ll be surprised how much of a spirit animal this brand can be for you when you shop their gear! Happy Shopping friends!
The Sachin & Babi sale is opening on Monday and we were lucky to get a sneak peak. In summary, the merchandise is sick and the prices are even sicker. If you have the opportunity to get there next week, drop everything and go. Below I am including images and price lists from the sale. Remember to mention that you found out about the sale through ShopDrop and next time our users will get early access!
The showroom is in the brand office, which means that prices are low. Items start at $5 and don’t go higher than $200. For gowns that retail at $1,900 this is a steal. The sale includes both stock and samples. Items are from the most recent 2017 season and there are plenty of sizes. I saw a number of size 10 gowns. There were tons of gowns, dresses, tops, skirts, pants, shorts, sweaters, belts and jewelry.
A bit about the Sachin & Babi brand. Trained by Oscar de la Renta himself, Sachin created his own brand in 2009, which is haute couture, young and vivacious all at once.
Make sure to hit to hit up the sale & mention ShopDrop.
The Prabal Gurung sample sale opened to much fanfare yesterday morning. When I entered the showroom shortly after 10:30am, there were more shoppers than I have ever seen at Prabal Gurung sale before. As I was leaving staff was controlling the number of people in/out of the space, and there was a small line accumulating in the entryway. This sale holds a special place in the history of Bespoke Bargains. It’s a sale I’ve personally been visiting for years, and it’s also the first sale I ever posted about (in fact, it’s my very first post!)
The last PG sale I attended in 2016 offered flat pricing that ranged from $50 knits (including cashmere) to $95 jackets/coats and $100 dresses. There are usually two PG sample sales per year, and I’ve learned that pricing tends to swing like a pendulum. One sale they raise prices; the next they drop.
Compared to the last sale—where pricing was flat by category—this sale is definitely more expensive. However it is definitely fair to say that the quality of merchandise here is much higher. There is a lot of merchandise from Resort/Spring ’17 as well as odds and ends from previous collections. Many items are production pieces that are new with tags, but there are a lot of archive and production samples, too. Items are individually marked (or denoted by colored dots), and prices range from $50 to $450. The only flat pricing for RTW is gowns which are all $450 and cashmere sweaters which are $200. The biggest savings today are on gowns and embellished cocktail dresses. Multiple sizes and colors were available in this Silk Pearl Embellished Party Dress which retailed for $3,250.00. Sample sale price was just $350—nearly 90% off! Gowns ultimately come to about 90% off as well. The median price point for dresses is $175. That includes some recent styles like this Off-The-Shoulder Tiered Ruffle Cotton Dress which retailed for $1,450.00, but mostly encompasses older pieces.
For under $100, you can find lots of pants, skirts and tops including pieces like this This Hankerchief Hem Skirt which is reduced to $85 from $1,095.00, or this Tunic Blouse which is also reduced to $85 from a retail of $695.00.
There is a small fitting room in the back left corner of the room, but it fills up fast and most women (myself included) were trying items on right off the rack. Shoes are also located near the fitting room and mostly heels and booties are available. Pricing on shoes is a little high in my opinion ($150 for unworn, $100 for samples, $275 for boots) and most shoppers weren’t really going through them.
The Fivestory store is a curated luxury shopping experience. Conceived by native New Yorker Claire Distenfeld, the idea began through Claire’s love for travel and passion for acquiring unique things at a young age. As she grew older, her memories became flooded with museums, shops, gardens, special streets and so much more. With amazing style and incredible experiences, Claire’s style developed into a concoction of everything from classic to avant-garde and all in-between.
Through their shared vision, Claire and her father, Fred, decided to take their passion and contribute to the world. Together, they created a store like no other. This father daughter duo was able to come up with a shopping adventure like no other and a store that combined their loves and interests like nothing else. Featuring the finest items from around the world, Claire and Fred decided to name this establishment Fivestory to represent not only the townhouse that holds the store, but also the diverse stories behind each product displayed within.
Now, you can understand my excitement to visit this exquisite sample sale. And on top of that, 260 Sample Sale is the host which is always great news. There’s nothing I love more than a well organized and very well stocked sample sale. (NOTE THAT THIS IS AN OFF SITE SAMPLE SALE)
Racks and racks of luxury, high end clothing adorned the floor. Most retailing between $1,000- $3,000 and each tag decorated with a blue or red sticker that reflected discounts from 75% to 90% off!! This sale features an abundance of party dresses, designer jeans, blouses and a many more show stopping pieces. I had a great time browsing the clothing, but I had to be honest with myself— I was really there for the shoes!!
The selection of heels and platforms from many different brands including Pierre Hardy and Aperlai was certainly impressive! I must have tried on close to every pair. Shoe retail prices start at $800, sample sale price 75% – 85% off!
