Alice and Trixie Sample Sale Was HeartBreaking

To understand how devastating the Alice and Trixie sample sale was, you have to understand what the Alice & Trixie sample sale used to be like in the good old days. In the old days, the sale would take place in the brand showroom and all the items would be priced in the $5-$35 range. That included silk dresses, tops, pants and everything else.

This time around (and the last sale as well), the sample sale was still in the brand showroom, the merchandise was still great, but the pricing was awful. There was a chart with utterly confusing prices – different for white labels, black labels and different categories. Here’s the bottom line: tops were $59 or $69. Dresses were $69 or $79. Some November category was $49. Pants were $29 and so were shorts. True, Alice & Trixie has nice quality cute items, but the brand is not elite. This cannot compare to Sandro or DVF, both sales happening at the same time and selling tops for exactly the same prices.

While I was there, no one purchased anything, there were only a few shoppers. Whoever entered left empty-handed. Brands should know that sample sale shoppers are smart and savvy – if the prices aren’t worthwhile, people won’t buy. I almost hope the brand won’t do well at this sample sale so that the next one will go back to true sample sale pricing. Given all of this, we’re rating the sale a 4 out of 10. Skip it and go to a better sale instead where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.

The DVF Sample Sale is the Place for Insane Discounts

By: Riva Neumann 

The DVF Sample Sale had a superb selection of clothing as well as accessories for insane discounted prices. Though it was a bit crowded, there was no line to get in, which was a (surprising) plus. I loved the amount of product they had at the sale; from gowns to ready to wear to accessories, they had it all. Also, everything was fairly priced, i.e. nothing was over $250. For DVF that is insane!

The accessories were my favorite part!  All of the bags were under $100 with most being $65. Also the smaller bags and wallets were a steal at only $20. The shoe selection was underwhelming, but each pair was $75, which made me happy. There was also a $45 rack of random items, which only added to my delight.

Given the merchandise, pricing, and no-line situation, I gave the DVF sample sale an 8/10, go check it out for some insanely priced DVF items! Happy Shopping!

Long Lines and Beautiful Clothes at the Sandro Sample Sale

By: Riva Neumann

The Sandro Sample Sale had me waiting for half an hour to get in. Once in, the sale was extremely crowded, which made for a very rough shopping experience. The clothes, however, were really well organized as well as good quality. That was definitely a plus. Most of the clothes were reasonably priced, i.e. the $95 dresses and $65 jeans. Some of the items, like the t-shirts, were be a bit pricey at $55 each.

The shoes were a very good deal at $95 a pair, but the selection was underwhelming. The accessories at the sale were also very underwhelming –  there was nothing other than scarves available when I got there. I preferred the selection of clothes and jackets available since there were so many to choose from and all were absolutely gorgeous.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7/10: the clothes at the sale were amazing, but the long lines and underwhelming accessories took the 3 marks away. This one has a green light – enjoy!

The Maje Sample Sale is Underwhelming

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Maje sample sale is honestly disappointing. Unless you feel like waiting around to be shoved by rude people sitting through mediocre merchandise, I’d say skip this sale.

At this sample sale, the merchandise is subpar; I honestly feel kind of gypped. The 30-minute line led to high expectations, but they are completely unfulfilled. Aside from a few cute blouses, a nice pair of pumps, and one alluring leather jacket, there isn’t anything worth buying.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5 out of 10. I’ve seen much better discounts on more expensive merchandise at plenty of sales. It is unsettlingly crowded with rude people, and I cannot stress how underwhelming the selection of products really is. Don’t bother going to this 260 sample sale.

By: Riva Neumann 

The Eberjey Sample Sale had some beautiful pajama sets that looked so comfortable. There were so many options that I would never even think of and they were all so organized. They had beautiful robes and chemises as well as classic top and pants/shorts sets. They also had a beautiful selection of bras and panties as well as adorable bathing suits that were buy-one-get-one-free! What made it even better was that there were no lines and no crowds so it was a very pleasant experience shopping.

Overall, I gave this sale an 8 out of 10. definitely head on over for some great deals on amazing pajamas and bathing suits! While the pajamas were super cute, I found some pieces to be a bit pricey, like $50 for a sleep shirt, but overall most pieces were very much worth the price and were quality pieces.

Clothingline Blowout Sale- Super Discounted, Super Messy

By: Riva Neumann 

The Clothingline Blowout Sale was a sale some would not miss, the lines in the morning were insane and almost impossible to get in. I went at about 2:30pm and there was absolutely no line. I see why people made sure to go early since by the time I got there, most of everything was already sold and what was left was damaged and stained. The good part was that nothing was over $30 with most items being around $10-$15.

Almost all of the items that were left weren’t on the correct rack so figuring out which item was from what brand took a few minutes to figure out. It was very messy and unorganized which was frustrating. Some of the clothes that were there were really a steal but many pieces were damaged in some way.

Overall, I gave this sale a 4.5/10, I didn’t find this sale to be worth going to but it’s possible that going earlier would have a better selection, though there will be long lines and it would be very crowded.

Peter Thomas Roth Sample Sale April 2019 Is Amazing

peter thomas roth sample sale 2019 ny review

We gave the Peter Thomas Roth sample sale a solid 9 out of 10. The prices were low, and we mean very low – there were masks and items selling for $2. The room was well organized with separate bins for different products.

There were few makeup items: a few SPF foundations, powders, eye brow gels. Everything else was skincare: hand creams, facial masks, serums, moisturizer, eye creams and what not. The most expensive items were $30. Everything else averaged in the $10-$15 range.

Given the calm atmosphere (it wasn’t empty), amazing prices, amount of merchandise and impressive organization of the sale, we recommend that all skincare junkies add this sample sale to the top of their list.

Gorgeous Gowns, Jackets and More at the Brock Collection Sample Sale

Brock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample saleBrock Collection sample sale

By: Riva Neumann 

The Brock Collection Sample Sale was a beautiful sight to walk into. Located at 545 W25th Street on the 5th floor, the showroom was super clean and organized and had windows with amazing views, and that is besides the amazing clothes and shoes they had to offer! Though some pieces carried a pretty hefty price tag, they were pretty steeply discounted and were really good quality.

I loved the shoes they had to offer! The prices ranged from $50- $450 and I was not disappointed in their selection. The jackets and blazers available were to die for. The sale wasn’t crowded which made for a really wonderful shopping experience  This is a sale that I would be running to since it is only open for 2 days!

I gave this sale a 9/10, go out there and enjoy the sale while it lasts!

J Brand Sample Sale, AKA Jean Heaven

By: Riva Neumann

The perfect pair of jeans is always hard to come by. Thankfully, the J Brand sample sale has you covered! Racks of every type of jean possible were available for $70 and leather pairs for $350. They also had some sample pairs available for $40. Whatever jean you need, they have! High waisted, mid-rise, boot cut, low rise, you name it, they had it. They had so many sizes available so you can definitely find your perfect pair!

The J Brand sample sale is the perfect place to find jeans, as well as some cute skirts, shorts and even some dresses! For the most part, the prices were really reasonable but there were some pieces (like an $80 sweater) that were very overpriced for a sample sale. If it is anything like the last sale, lets hope the prices keep dropping.

Overall, I gave this sale a 7.5. Go out there and buy yourself a new pair of jeans, you’ve earned it! Happy shopping!

Gowns and dresses and bathing suits, Oh My! – Shoshanna sample sale

By Riva Neumann 

The Shoshanna sample sale is the place to get some gorgeous Shoshanna gown for less than $100. Prices ranged from $35- $100 which is such a STEAL. The gowns they had were absolutely beautiful and the short dresses were to die for. There were also a lot of amazing bathing suits available which is perfect for summer!

Everything they had was pretty much perfect- if you are a size 4. For the most part, just about everything available was a sample size 4.They also had some other sizes available ranging from 6-12, but there were mostly blouses available in those sizes. Also, a few of the gowns were damaged.

Overall, I would give this sale 7/10, there was not a lot of variety in size or product, but the discounts are really good and most of the product was really good quality.
