The Proenza Schouler sample sale had me after one thing: bags, and it did not disappoint. The bags were all absolutely amazing and had me yearning for more money so I could purchase them all. Each of these bags were unique and definitely a statement piece that belongs in anyones’ closets. I would recommend this sale if you are in need of some statement pieces and accessories to mix in to your current wardrobe.
Though I was excited about the 50%-60% discounts, it came to my attention that in previous years, they’ve discounted their bags a whopping 70% off retail. As amazing as the bags are, I found them to be a bit pricey for a sample sale. In addition to the gorgeous bags, they also had a good variety of shoes that were 70% off retail. While many of the shoes were beautiful, there were also many labeled ‘damaged’ so watch out for that. They were also very limited on shoe sizes, most of them being a 37 (US size 6) which is very restrictive. The clothing selection was also really good as they had some really fun pieces as well as some more edgy ones but I found the prices to be a bit steep.
Overall, I would give this sale a 7/10, I loved the variety of product that was available, however I found prices to be a bit expensive and the discounts to be a let down from previous years.
