Get Your Denim On! – The J Brand Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the J Brand Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. The sale had an abidance of colorful and regular blue denim jeans to chose from, as well as crushed velvet, leather and pastel colors.

The J Brand Sample Sale had a great selection of jeans, classic blue jeans with rips, crushed velvet, high waisted white. You name it, they had it! They also had a large selection of samples in nearly every size for only 40 dollars! There were great shorts on sale, perfect for the end of the summer! As well as denim jackets that could be worn all year round.

We rated the J Brand Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise offered in nearly every size but the prices were still high. You can find J Brand jeans on sale at department stores for less than 70 dollars, so we recommend you wait until they markdown the prices.

Posh Furniture at the ABC Home and Carpet Sample Sale

abc home sample sale

By: Cristina Martin

I’m not exactly sure if the people at ABC Home and Carpet understand the definition of a sample sale, because the prices were still astronomical. However, there is a silver lining. The pieces at the ABC Home and Carpet sample sale were beautiful! Discounts ranged from 30 – 70% off. The sale took place on the 4th floor. Everything was on sale, from lighting to bedding.

We gave the ABC Home and Carpet sample sale a 5 out of 10. Yes there was a lot beautiful things for sale, but let’s be honest, who can really afford it?! Okay, let’s say you had some money under your mattress to treat yourself, can you really cram anything else into your apartment? Honestly, the high prices are such a shame, because there were some really cool pieces there. My favorites had to be the little wall desk and the antique cash register. (Shown in the pictures below.)

If you’re in the area, check it out. If anything you can grab a bite at their restaurant, the delicious ABC Kitchen.

Clothing for All Seasons at the Elizabeth and James Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Today we had the chance to check out the Elizabeth and James sample sale before it opened to the public. Held in the bustling Chelsea Market, the Elizabeth and James sample sale had a large selection of both samples and regular stock items. Samples were priced as marked and regular stock started at $39. The most expensive items were the regular stock fur coats. However, if you don’t mind a sample piece, you can score a fur coat for $199.

We rated the Elizabeth and James a 8 out of 10. The prices were fair and the selection was good. The space was also brilliantly organized and the dressing rooms were huge! I had the pleasure of meeting some of the lovely Chelsea Market staff. It is a breath of fresh air to encounter such friendly staff at a sample sale.

Check out the Olsen twins’ line, Elizabeth and James, sample sale as you’re passing through Chelsea Market this week. Details and pictures? “You got it, Dude!”

Boho Heavy Coats – Nicholas K Sample Sale (not to be confused with Nicholas Kirkwood)

Lovers of behemian style robe-sweaters, sequined coats and sheep-skin berets will find a heaven at the Nicholas K sample sale. We double checked – Nicholas Kirkwood (the glitzy shoe brand) has nothing to do Nicholas K, a NY based brand of wild clothes and accessories. Aside from the sweaters (with sleeves coming out somewhere from the depth of scrunched material), jackets that could double as bath robes and heavy sequined coats – that all cost north of $300, we found a few things we loved: 1. the cashmere-fur throw – perfect gift and sold for $125, furry slippers for $50 and really petrifying cuffs made out of animal skin ($40).

If that stuff excites you, head over to the sale:

Make a Statement with Finds from the Fivestory Sample Sale

Fivestory Sample Sale

By Christina Martin I Photo Credit: Racked

If you are looking for your next statement piece to stand out at a wedding or gala, head down to the Fivestory sample sale. Fivestory, an Upper East Side boutique with a reputation for carrying funky pieces did not disappoint! The Fivestory sample sale had a variety of tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, hats, jewelry, and even home décor. Some well-known brands include Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Nicholas Kirkwood and a large selection of Carolina Herrera. The prices were insane! All apparel are sold at an incredible 80% off, and shoes were at 75% off. However, there is a caveat. Usually, set prices are listed according to item, but the Fivestory sample sale lists the percentage discounts instead. So, make sure your phone calculator is handy to find out how much each item costs. This sale is pricier than most other 260 sample sales with the average price per item closer to $200 than to $100. As always, you can find the deets and pictures below. Enjoy!

By Melissa Atkinson, The Reasonable Style

No need to plan out your sample sale shopping today when you can shop 2 brands at one sample sale. Alice & Trixie plus Love Sam equal sample sale heaven. With an entry way and an additional room filled with samples and stock items, you wouldn’t even know where to start. Alice & Trixie had more to offer at this sale offering both stock items ($39-$79) and vintage samples that started at $3 for the vintage pieces, yes $3. I was surprised myself when I seen the price tag. Although some of the items were defective, there were other items that were in great condition.You have to take your time and be patient in order to score something good on those racks.

Vintage Dress $5

Vintage Dress $10

Love Sam had more wear now pieces from stock ($25-$75). They even had 2 Shearling Coats available (I’m sure that they will be gone by the time you read this). The prices were not listed, it instructs you to see an associate so you know that the price was similar to retail.

Both brands offered a range of sizes, mostly small sizes. Also available were small accessories like scarves which were 3 for $15 and shoes in ALL sizes. The shoes were gently worn but they all were on sale for $30 from brands like TOPSHOP and Steve Madden to name a few.

This sale came right on time for the holiday season. You can get quite a few items for your loved ones without hurting your pocket. Want to check it out, head over to:

Invitation Only – Jimmy Choo Sample Sale Review

By: Amanda Fontana

The Jimmy Choo invitation-only sample sale took place at the Met Pavillion two weeks ago. The enormous showroom was completely filled with a massive stock ranging from women’s shoes, boots, purses, scarves, sunglasses, belts, and even a selection of men’s shoes. Prices started at $50 and ranged to $450, a massive discount considering Jimmy Choo pieces often retail for upwards of $1,000.

Most accessories were one size, but the shoes had a massive range of sizing. There was also a variety in purse sizing as well, so smaller evening purses were much cheaper. Check out the photos to see a small range of all the products!

The sale was exclusive and required a pass to enter, and the line to get in went around the block– even for press. That said, the wait was definitely worth it; the sale was extraordinarily busy, but the products were all amazing and worth browsing through.

The event only lasted for two days– three, if you include VIP early access– so if you’re interested in attending private sales like this one, be sure to RSVP and follow the instructions on the app! They come and go very quickly, and invitations can be hard to come by if you wait too long.

The Row Sample Sale Review

The Row is a ready-to-wear fashion line created by the Olsen twins. Their showroom, taking place at the Met Pavilion at 123 W 18th St on the fifth floor, features pieces that can retail for over $1,000.

There’s a huge variety of items to look at; between clothes, outerwear, and shoes, there’s something for every occasion. Sizes vary from 0 to 12 and XS to L, and prices range from $200 to $1,000 for more extravagant pieces. Shoes are in European sizes, so remember to check a conversion chart to find your size.

Some personal favorites of mine were their blazers, silk tops, and trousers. The showroom is enormous, so it’s hard to narrow it down; be sure to check it out for yourself!

This sale is credit card only, and bags are checked, so come prepared!

Pratesi Sample Sale Review

Pratesi is an Italian luxury linen retailer, with sets selling for upwards of $1,000. Their sample sale, taking place at 317 W 33rd St, is selling old stock– including sheet sets of all sizes, shams, towels, and more– at discounted prices

A disclaimer right off the bat: given the steep prices the pieces retail for, even after they’re discounted they still number in the hundreds of dollar for sets. While some things, such as small mats and hand towels, run cheaper at around $30, expect to find most products selling for at least $390. While that’s a little steep for me, personally, it’s definitely still better than $1,000– so if you’ve got a craving for luxury linens, be sure to check it out.

The sale has a very short run, and ends today; the showroom is enormous, so there’s still plenty of stock to browse through.

When: Today, 9 am to 5 pm
