By: Cristina Martin

Tonight was the VIP night for the Alice and Oliva sample sale. The place was lit! 260 sample sale was packed with people trying to score the best items before someone else could snatch it up. Among the crowd was Shopdrop December VIP shoppers. This past fall, Alice and Olivia held her fashion show on a boat, so now let’s dive into the sample sale

260’s 5th Avenue location was filled with racks organized by size, starting at 0 and going up to 10. That’s a nice gap for many people to shop. There was definitely a wide variety of items to chose from. The Alice and Olivia sample sale sold both discounted regular stock and samples. Sample racks were wiped out! We are praying that they will be restocking. This is the right place to shop if you’re interested in dresses. There were so many dresses with very cute designs. Outerwear was another winner. There were many options to choose from that will guarantee you will be making an entrance. In addition to an array of clothing, you can also shop for shoes, a diverse set of accessories, and even holiday decorations! Handbags and wallets were at about 70% off. What a steal! This is NOT a sale you can miss. Run over to the Alice and Oliva sample sale. It opens to the public tomorrow. Happy shopping!

New Accessories Spotted at the White and Warren Sample Sale

White and Warren Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Cashmere is a perfect gift for this holiday season! If it wasn’t so expensive, you can knock everyone off your list. Let’s do just that at the White and Warren sample sale. Although a little strange that they had a sale just this past October, they added more accessories this time around.  Pick up some slippers, eye masks, and gloves among an array of clothing.

Everything was really well priced. The showroom was small and very crowded, and therefore not enough space to a large amount of merchandise. However, there were plenty of sizes to choose from. If you loved the October sale then hurry over to this sale ASAP. It only lasts two days! Happy shopping!

J Brand Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

If your wardrobe consists of denim on denim on denim, then the J Brand sample sale at 260 is the stop for you! The J Brand sale features racks on racks their denim pants for guys men and women. The jeans are conveniently divided by style of pant and then within the style by color. All RTW pants are $70, which is around a 70% discount off the usual selling point of $248. The sale also has J Brand samples which are stored in bins in the back of the sales floor. All sample pants are $40 and also organized by size.

The sale also has shoes and other pieces from designer Feit. All of the shoes were downstairs and there was a wide range of sizes for most of the shoes.

We rated this sale a five out of ten because while there was a good inventory, the discounts were not enough to achieve a high rank. While $70 jeans are not too outrageous, one could get J Brand jeans at closing Lord and Taylor on 5th ave for a better deal…

If you’re still in search of the perfect outfit for those holiday and New Year’s Eve parties, then make your way over to the Jil Sander, Brock Collection, Jonathan Simkhai, and Fleur du Mal sample sale at 260! The sale is FILLED with the perfect duds to turn your friends green with envy. The pieces were organized on racks by designer with tables of shoes in the back. Interestingly, the shoes were from See By Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, and Rochas. None of the brands were advertised by 260.

While Jil Sander was the headlining designer of this sale, the real gems were from Fleur du Mal and Jonathan Simkhai. The pieces by both brands were beautiful in both style and quality. We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 because of the beautiful inventory and the decent discounts. The rating could have been higher, but 260 was lining people out in the cold even though the sales floor was not full by any means.

Smells like the Holidays at the Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample Sale

Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

I love nothing more than a good oil diffuser. They have the fragrant power of a traditional candle, without the house-burning capabilities…

This week 260 hosted the Nest Fragrances and Manduka yoga supplies sample sale. At 6:00pm, during a light rain shower, there was a line down the block and yet barely any people shopping indoors. There were candles, lotions, soaps, reed diffusers, and liquidless diffusers. All of the scents seems to follow a holiday them. There were pine scents, vanilla scents, a warm subtle cinnamon, and a sugar cookie scent. Many of the products, including the Saharan Spice, Birchwood Pine, and Sugar Cookie, can be found online. While the discounts are not astronomical, these products are current.

The Manduka section was much smaller. There were plenty of yoga matts and foam boxes, and four racks with yoga apparel

We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 for the current and seasonally appropriate inventory.

Wrinkles at the Vivienne Westwood Sample Sale

Vivienne Westwood sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Usually, for a popular brand’s sample sale I can understand the high price points. But at the Vivienne Westwood sample sale, the quality did not match the price points. The sale featured mens and women’s apparel, shoes, and accessories. When walking through the apparel racks, I noticed that a large number of the women’s pieces were wrinkled and misshapen. I could be alone is this, but I would never spend $300 to buy a wrinkled blouse. Hopefully this is not a trend that will be seen in the rest of the inventory.

We gave this sale a 5 out of 10 because of the condition of the clothes, the high prices, and the lack of sizing. Many items were the only ones of their style and appeared to be very old. Shopping this sale reminded me of shopping at a second-hand store, but with way higher prices…

Italy has Come to America with the Components by John McCoy Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

You can find a little piece of Italy just under the Upper East Side at the Components by John McCoy sample sale. Shop beautiful, Italian casual wear and suits for both men and women. However, the most extensive selection is in menswear. Ladies, you browse through top, bottoms, jackets, and accessories. Women’s clothing was mostly casual, but some pieces can be worn for work and then transformed to dinner with the girls. They also had the cutest little handbags perfect for a night out on the town. We even stumbled upon a wine bottle holder for 20 bucks. Now that’s something we’ve never seen! Men’s had a larger selection with a few racks of suits and jackets and tables with pants, sweaters, and shirts. Full suits were a steal at $300. You can choose from thicker, winter suits, and suits you can wear all year around.

We gave the Components by John McCoy sample sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large variety of high-quality clothing. If you’re in the market for everyday clothing that has a different flare, this is the sale for you. Prices are pretty standard. You can even catch the staff speaking in Italian if you’re lucky. Happy shopping!

Bonpoint Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Beautiful Pieces at the Bonpoint sale

Bonpoint sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

ShopDrop users are always looking for great deals on children’s clothes. So we were very excited to check out the Bonpoint sale this past week. Just because children grow out of their clothes quickly, does NOT mean that there should be any sacrifice on style and BonPoint seems to agree! The sale was held in the same building as the Jimmy Choo and The Row sample sale. The sale was organized by size (or the child’s age) and featured both winter and summer items. Clothing items were 60% off marked price while shorts and shoes were 70% off retail price. There were even nifty charts around the room showing what 60% off would be on various price points. The inventory was truly beautiful and made me wish I could fit into the clothes…

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10 because while the sale was organized with plenty of pieces, the discount left something to be desired.
