Sample Sale Review: Kendall and Kylie Pop-Up

Kendall and Kylie Sample Sale New York

Am I the only one who wants to party when I see clothes from the Kendall and Kylie brand? Imagine how thrilled I was to hear from Lindsay at Clothingline that the Kendall and Kylie sample sale would take place in a gorgeous Soho pop-up. By 10:30 AM, there was a line formed on the street of eager bargain hunters waiting to get first dibs on one of the cool fun brands out there. The showroom was large and filled with natural light. The hanger racks lined the entire floor and they were filled with all sorts of goodies – most of them at a swooping 80% discount!  What I liked most about the sale was the fact that there was clothing for any consumer: the one who wants to wear tiny shorts and crop tops, and the corporate gal, who needs trendy and sharp items for the office.

Tops, bottoms and separates ranged in price but were mostly under $50, dresses were between $79 and $89, and coats and furry items were capped at $199. If you’re looking for a few items to freshen up your wardrobe with that won’t break the bank, head over to the brand new location on Prince St. If you haven’t downloaded our app yet, make sure to do so and follow us on Instagram @shopdropapp for live updates on the coolest NY sample sales!

Sample Sale Review: Jimmy Choo

How appropriate is it that the first truly warm day this month coincided with the Jimmy Choo sample sale opening? I showed up near the Met Pavilion at the early hours of dawn to reserve my rightful place in the line of anxious bargain hunters and fashionistas! Okay, maybe it was 11AM and I really didn’t feel like rolling out of bed that early. Whatever, still felt like dawn to me. So I stood there for a good hour staring at my phone and feeling the sun beat down mercilessly on my sweltering head. Observing those in line was fun: the girl who nearly pulled off her shirt in genuine frustration, the man who was saying something quite passionately into his headphone in a different language to someone who must have been thrilled to be on the receiving end and the girls who looked like they walked off the runway to grab some Jimmy Choos. All in all, the line moved relatively quickly, and I made the trek up four flights of stairs to learn that I now earned the right to stand in yet another line, where I would receive a ticket in exchange for my bag and then voila! I entered paradise.

The wait was completely worth it – the white room was filled with people scurrying from table to table. The crowds were managed nicely, there was enough room to approach each table, check out the merchandise, try on a few shoes and move on. The tables were organized by size – so if you are a size 8, you would walk over to the few 8 tables and try on shoes until you were content. The selection was awesome: flats, heels, booties, boots, sandals – you name it. There was also a table with accessories, which included awesome purses, hard-cased clutches and handbags. Prices ranged between $200 and $350 for all items. Considering the fact that at retail, Jimmy Choo shoes cost between $625 and $4,425 (I kid you not), the shoes at the sale are practically free. Well, at least you would think they are by the huge bags of shoes people were walking out with! Anyhow, I’ll stop bogging you down with details and will let you enjoy the pictures from the sale. These are from my iphone but I will try to have more professional photos down the road.

If you want to hit up the sale, you will need a special code so email me at estee@shopdrop.app and I will send you all the gory details.

Fashion Interview Sample Sale

A Goldmine of Urban Fashion

Interview with Z, founder and manager of 375 pop-up

To passerby, 375 Lexington might seem like any other NY address. However, to those New Yorkers looking for a real steal in urban fashion, the address is a sanctuary. For seven days every month, 375 Lexington turns into a pop-up store for urban designers

375 Pop Up Urban Fashion
375 Pop Up

E: What are some of the unique brands you bring to your customers:

Z: Our popup is always a combination of traditional luxury brands such as Chanel, Gucci and Loubutin, combined with up and coming urban designers. Some of the hottest designers include Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Off-White and FDK One. In May, for the first time ever, we are bringing the ridiculously popular brand called Outlaw Moscow to New York. People will be flying in from all over the world for this one.

E: How do people find out about you? What’s your most prominent source of marketing?

Z: At 375, we don’t use any of the traditional marketing resources. We don’t have a website, a traditional office space or anything like that. We offer quality authentic items at amazing discounts and word travels. At our first pop-up we opened an Instagram account, and within a week had close to 1,500 followers. The lines into the store were around the block and we sold out of merchandise in the first three days of a ten-day pop-up. I realized then and there that we created something unique.

E: Why did you choose a pop-up model over a freestanding store:

Z: I believe that origins and remembering where you come from is important. The popup business changes fast. You never know which location it will take you to next. We fell in love with 375 Lexington as soon as we laid our eyes on it. Our fan base loves it as well – they flock to this location from all over the United States, whether it’s New York, Texas, or Los Angeles.

Additionally, freestanding stores have to have a consistent image and feel to them. We aren’t locked into anything. We stand for promoting unique fashion designers. Every month we choose someone else, and every month, our store looks different. That’s why people keep on coming back – there is always novelty at 375.

E: I imagine you came up with the name 375 because of the location. Is there anything else to the name?

Z: Although we sell clothes only 7 days out of 30, we work 24 hours seven days every single week. Sourcing clothes at discounted prices takes a lot of effort, and we put our all into it – so basically, we work not 365 days a year but 375. By now, the name is than an address, it is a symbol. So no matter where we go next, we will keep the name.

E: Moving forward, how do you see 375 evolving?

Z: No matter where we move or how long we are open for, we will always stay true to what we stand for: offering value to our customers through valuable hard-to-find merchandise for authentic prices. We will always engage with our consumers to ensure the highest quality and service.

What: 375 Pop Up
When: Sun, May 21 – Sun, May 28
Where: 375 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY
What time: Sun-Sun 12PM – 8PM

Just in time for Mothers Day, 260 sample sale’s 5th ave location has your answers in stock from today until Saturday. Let’s face it, is there anything your mom really needs at this stage in her life? Probably not. Gifts are tough, and finding meaningful ones that won’t break the bank are even tougher. This fusion sample sale of both Nest Fragrances and Swell water bottles has got you covered for both practical and classy gifts. Let’s check out some prices.

S’ip by S’well Bottles $10

These bottles are great because they keep your drinks hot or cold all day long. So many different colours I literally couldn’t choose one. These water bottles usually cost between 25 and 40 bucks. For this price, get one for you and Mom.

Okay, great. Now that mom has a practical bottle to keep her coffee hot at the office, and her water cold in her bag, let’s talk fragrances. Maybe I’m just a sucker for scented candles, but really, you can’t go wrong people, literally the classic gift. Candle prices ranged from $2- $60. For the record, the $2 ones were mini, and the $60 ones were big enough to use as a fish bowl when they’re through. Keep scrolling to find out how much you’re spending.

Fear not guys, there were also $5 candles which were basically the same, maybe with a less of a higher end feel, more of a Bath and Body Works vibe.

Diffusers are a great gift because they’re literally harmless. Add them to any room to make it smell amazing.

Here’s the fish bowl candle I was talking about before. Not so practical if you ask me but hey, everyone’s different. Maybe your mom is a giant candle kind of person.  Pop by the Nest Fragrance and S’ip by S’well sample sale at 260 5th Ave and walk out smelling like a bucket of roses.

Sample Sale Review: Zadig & Voltaire

Zadig & Voltaire sample sale

This will be short and sweet. If you have any way to schlep down to Franklin street in the next few hours, GO! Since it’s the last day of the two-day sale, prices are reduced even further and they were amazing to begin with. We are suckers for big discounts and these are huge! You can find shorts and TShirts – we kid you not – for $10, real leather tops for $50, gorgeous dresses for $60. The sale is at their office, the people are really nice. They give you this huge logo bag to fill up with the goodies. Oh, and wallets and shoes and booties galore. Most remaining items are a size medium, but their medium runs pretty small. And they have a rack of men’s clothes as well. Go and Enjoy!

I am posting some pictures below and am including the address.

Sample Sale Review: MAJE

MAJE sample sale in NY

This morning we headed out to the MAJE sale hosted in midtown. The nice part was that there were no lines so we had an easy time getting in. From the first few moments at the sale it is obvious that MAJE is not an American brand. (It’s French). The sizes are European, so you had to translate numbers like 1,2,3 into 4,6,8. The racks at the entry are filled with jackets and tops perfect for the corporate woman. There were long tweed jackets in light pastel and bright pink colors. The designs are clean, chic and classy. Jackets were priced at $145, while tops were at $85. Leather tops and blazers were gorgeous and more expensive. Original prices are north of $500 – so all things considered, the sample sale offers significant bargains.

MAJE Sample Sale

Toward the back of the store were the dresses – all selling for $105. This is where being a savvy consumer comes in handy. All of the dresses are nice. But at $105, some are nice and some are a steal. There were a number of long-sleeved dresses that can be worn to the office in the summer. A few slimming silhouettes, and some power cocktail dresses. Another awesome perk is that the dressing room was pretty convenient – we could try on dresses, make decisions and be in and out within 20 minutes.

 

If you have half an hour and can get to the area of 5th Ave and 28th St, we highly recommend you go. Details of the sale are below.

Sample Sale Review: Marc Jacobs

We just returned from the Marc Jacobs sample sale with bags full of goodies. If you have a few moments to get to the sample sale, we definitely recommend you check it out. Sadly, no pictures were allowed in the building, so we included some look alike images below and lots and lots of descriptions.

So, on the top floor, there are racks and racks of clothes. Most of the racks are for women, but there are three racks for men as well. Everything on this floor is 90% off so for tops a $800 top is selling for $80 and a $2,200 skirt is selling for $220. There are lots of party dresses, cocktail outwear, everyday tops, skirts, fancy pants (we mean that literally). There is a nice selection of sizes – from small to large, and the merchandise is beautiful. I picked up one silver dress with black tulle and love it.

Marc Jacobs Sample Sale

If you head downstairs, everything is in buckets and is priced at an 80% discount. That’s where you will find accessories such as giant leather clutches for $199, socks for $10, underwear, children’s clothes for $30, belts out of real leather for $28, bracelets, cosmetic bags for $6, t-shirts and jeans. All are overflowing in buckets and people are scrambling for the merchandise.

The sale is taking place until Sunday, April 23rd at 260 sample sale located at 150 Greene Street.

Hours: Wed – Fri 9AM-8PM, Sat 10AM-8PM

Rent The Runway Sample Sale

rent the runway sample sale, sample sales nyc, shopdrop

Let’s face it, it’s hard to rationalize spending half a week’s paycheck on a designer gown, pair of heels or bag that you’re only going to wear once. Receiving the prestigious title of bridesmaid, prom queen or any wedding invitation comes with the heavy burden of figuring out what to wear, and where to buy it. I for one always find myself in a pickle, because somehow, at the ripe, old age of 22, I still do not own anything appropriate for these occasions. I’m notorious for wearing the same dresses time and time again, perpetually worrying that I’ll be caught in the act.sample sale, sample sales nyc, shopdrop app, sample sale nyc, rent the runway sample sale, designer sales Similar to the notion of buying a wedding dress or a graduation gown, luxury clothing pieces for anomaly events are impractical to purchase if they are only going to be worn ONCE. Right? One company is here to solve all your dress needs, with the lofty proposition of walking the runway right into your closet, to rent.

Enter Rent the Runway, solving the problem women face every time a fancy event comes around. Rent the Runway allows you to rent beautiful, designer dresses for literally up to 90% off the retail price. The idea is really genius seeing that a lot of women are concerned about wearing the same dress more than once, especially if the guest list is likely to repeat itself.

Although the rental aspect is what gives the brand its competitive advantage, we can’t forget about the amazing prices! Rent the runways gives consumers who wouldn’t normally be able to purchase pricy labels such as Vara Wang, Derek Lam and Elie Tahari the power to do it!

Now you have a chance to purchase these gently used designer clothes and accessories for a 90% discount. Brands include Badgley Mischka, Kate Spade, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, SUNO and Theory.
