Fashion Lauren Checchi Maison De Papillon Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Uncategorized

Two for One: Inside the Masion De Papillon and Lauren Checchi Sample Sales

By: Cristina Martin

Two sample sales in one space! The Masion De Papillon sample sale kindly shared their space and included the Lauren Checchi sample sale.

The Masion De Papillon sample sale featured their clothing collection along with handbags form Khirma New York. Khrima New York had their new and classic collection on display. You can shop totes, handbags, and evening bags from Khirma New York. Her bags were made from fabulous materials, but still pretty pricey. The discount was large, one bag went from $1,090 to $400, but for a sample sale that’s not a huge name is still expensive. The same bag was offered in white for $150 because it was scuffed. Masion De Papillon featured 100% silk shirts, cashmere pieces, and leather pants. Everything was beautiful and very soft! Silk shirts were $25 – $50 and cashmere and leather ranged from $100 – $300. Still very expensive for a sample sale.

Lauren Checchi’s strengths lie in color! All her bags come in exquisite colors, inside and out. Some of her bags will have will have one color outside and a complementary color inside. Lauren Checchi had purses in all sizes. She even had a super chic laptop bag with smaller pockets inside. If you’re looking to accessorize, you can also pick up card holders and key chains. (Even the puff key chains!) Lauren Checchi used a price list instead of individually pricing items. That’s always a great help!

We rated both sales a 6 out of 10. The merchendise was really great – beautiful and high quality, but they lost points on pricing. We understand the markdown is high, but most sample sale shoppers won’t pay those prices for a non-high ticket item. The designers for each respective brand were present at the sale. This was such a nice touch considering they gave shoppers personal attention, and they have the most knowledge on the brand. They were also all super sweet! Happy shopping!

260 Sample Sale BCBG Runway Fashion Herve Leger Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Bandage and Beads at Herve Leger and BCBG Runway Sample Sale

Herve Leger and BCBG Runway sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Rebecca Minkoff US

As I walked up Greene St. to one of the 260 sample sale location, I was preparing myself for a line around the block and an hour wait in the 90° heat. But lo and behold, there was no line and barely any people inside. For such a hyped sale, this emptiness was a welcome surprise, but was foreshadowing for the steep prices. I ,personally, am a fan of the Herve Leger dresses, but know that finding the perfect venue for these bandage dresses can be tricky. You can’t wear them to weddings or any other formal affair and they are generally too much for a night out. So despite all the colors and shapes, the $200 price tag seems too high. But the last Herve Leger sample sale did have lower prices and saw price reductions within two days.

The sale also featured pieces from BCBG runway which were beautiful and less expensive. Both brands had dresses, tops, bottoms, jackets, and furs represented at the sale. The BCBG dresses and tops were very summery and would have to be put away until 2019.

We rated the Herve Leger and BCBG runway sample sale an 8 out of 10 for the beautiful inventory and steep prices.

Fashion Karolina Zmarlak Khirma New York Meredith Marks Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Convertible and Reversible fun at the Karolina Zmarlak

Karolina Zmarlak sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

We stopped by the Karolina Mzarlak studio today to check out Karolina Zmarlak, Khirma New York, and Meredith Marks sample sale. With the three brands present, there was plenty of inventory to choose from. From apparel to handbags to furs. The handbags were beautiful ranging from large leather purses to Swarovski crystal encrusted clutches. The ready-to-wear was equally stunning with plenty of pieces for every palette. What particularly stuck out to me was the convertible and reversible items. Many of the clothing options were able to be worn both inside-out and backwards. There were also pieces were the longer sleeve could be fastened into a bow on the back or draped over the shoulder. The clothes could be transformed to satisfy even the wildest imagination.

We rated the sale a 6 out of 10 because of the inventive pieces and the steep prices. While it was reported that the pieces were 75% off, they were still too high for this shopper. But if the prices are no deterrent, make sure to RSVP by emailing, rsvp@karolinazmarlak.com, before stopping by!

Squeezing Out Every Bit of Summer at the Prive Sample Sale

Prive Sample Sale

Photo Via Diva’s World 

By: Cristina Martin 

Chelsea Market sample sales never disappoint! The Prive sample sale featured summer clothing and swim for both men and women. Chelsea Market has a huge space, so there was plenty of merchandise form a variety of brands to choose from. There are racks of swim for both men and women in so many colors. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up for next year, or that tropical getaway in January. The Prive sample sale also had a dresses, tops, cute pants, and skirts. For the gentlemen, you can choose from tops, trousers, denim and accessories. Prices were also very reasonable!

We rated the Prive sample sale a 8 out of 10. Pros were of course the fabulous clothing, huge selection, and affordable prices. The only con was the fact that it is mostly summer, you only have a few weeks at best to use them before the items go in storage. Don’t loose all hope, some items can definitely be used for fall/early winter. Happy shopping!

Cravin’ Some Carven Sample Sale

Carven Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Labor Day Sale Early Access! Receive 30-75% off sitewide with code TAKE30 at LastCall.com. Offer Valid 8/28.

Carven is a brand we all love, so when the Carven sample sale showed up on our feed, we jumped! We had to travel all the way to the west side, beyond the subway, for this one. So, the stakes were high! The room was fairly small but jammed packed with clothing, shoes, and accessories. The Carven sample sale featured both men’s and women’s clothing, however there was no formal changing room. Everything was strikingly beautiful. From coats to dresses, we were impressed. You can shop very simple, elegant pieces to embellished and funky accent pieces. You can definitely shop for any occasion at the Carven sample sale.

We rated the Carven sample sale a 7 out of 10. Carven lost points at pricing. Yes, all the pieces were stunning, but the prices were still just so high. It was a also very confusing. Women’s items were as marked. Items that had prices written on the tag were considered samples. Apparently, these are already marked down $70. Items with the the price written on a colored round sticker are regular stock items. Everything was mixed together, so you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. Men’s items were pretty confusing as well. They had a price list, but that didn’t match what was on the tags. Word of advice, ask a sales associate for accurate pricing.

If you’re down to splurge, the Carven sample sale is worth the visit. Happy shopping!

Winter is Coming at the Michelle Waugh Sample Sale

Michelle Waugh sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Even though it is currently over 85º in New York City, fall and winter are just around the corner. To help us all prepare, we stopped by the Michelle Waugh sample sale. The sale was held at their NYC showroom and featured a rack of discounted coats and blazers. Their pieces are all 100% cashmere and would be perfect for when the temperature finally drops. The staff was extremely helpful and discussed some of the pieces and explained their features.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10 because while the selection of coats and outerwear was beautiful, there was something to be desired price wise. The least expensive piece that I could find was a $330 coat, which is a steep price for a cashmere coat that can’t be worn in sleet or snow.

Let us know if you’ll be stopping by the Michelle Waugh sample sale in the comments below!
