The Veronica Beard Sample Sale is a Total Sh*t Show

By: Jacqueline Munro

After waiting on line for almost two hours outside of the Veronica Beard sample sale today, and then throwing elbows inside for another hour, I am exhausted. I’m gonna save you some reading here and start off with this: WAIT FOR MARKDOWNS.

At this sale, there are tons of gorgeous blazers, suits, skirts, sweaters, dresses, shoes, and accessories. There were some really cute sets as well, but where am I going to wear a matching skirt/blazer set? My mom got two suits and a blazer, but she’s a sucker for Veronica Beard so she wasn’t bothered by the fact that the production pieces were only 70% off retail. In my opinion, that’s just too pricey for this brand. If prices were 80%-90% off, then we’d be talking. But no, and on top of that, the people in this sale were absolutely maddening. They were so rude and aggressive. I’ve never seen people go so crazy over 70% off in my entire life. Sample prices ran from $20-$250 which is what I would have hoped for the production pieces.

Overall, I rated this sale a 5/10. If prices were better and the place wasn’t such a circus I would’ve given it a higher rating. But honestly, I wasn’t expecting anything better from 260. So, ladies, I cannot stress this enough, control yourselves and WAIT. FOR. MARKDOWNS.

The Early Bird Gets the Worm at the Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Loyal ShopDroppers know the importance of being early to sample sales, so we weren’t surprised to see that the inventory at the Scotch and Soda sample sale was slightly picked over. There were still racks left in the plenty of clothes, but it was clear that the early morning crowd had taken the best picks.

We gave the Scotch and Soda sample sale a 7 out of 10. The show room was very large and the staff was extremely friendly. Pricing was decent, but there was limited sizing for men and for women it was the same sizing across the board. The samples seemed to be geared toward early spring weather.

Classy and Funky Pieces at the MB Sample Sale for Men.

By Melanie Capruso

Today we braved the potential thunderstorms to stop by Clothingline’s MB Sample sale for Men. The sale featured different designers like Prada, Versace, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabana, Roberto Cavalli, and Tod’s. The largest selection was in shoes. There were four different tables all featuring shoes in different sizes. The shoes was a mix of your classic, standard loafers and dress shoes with some WILD animal print high top sneakers and blue Prada sandals (check out the pictures below, the shoes need to be seen…). Also, if you don’t see one in your size, check below the table as there is more. In the back of the sale there were a mix of different shirts. There were Roberto Cavalli polos and graphic tees and boxes upon boxes of Versace dress shirts all $35. 

We rated this sale a 6 out of 10 because while it was empty of people and full of pieces, the prices were still pretty high for all the shoes.

Bandage and Beads at Herve Leger and BCBG Runway Sample Sale

Herve Leger and BCBG Runway sample sale

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.
