Prices were beyond out of control at the Sandy Liang flash sale. They were so high, you felt like you were at a vintage Chanel sale. On top of ridiculous pricing, there was also no air conditioning. If you’re able to take out a second mortgage and survive the heat stoke, you can finally shop at the Sandy Liang sample sale. The clothing had a really unique style to it, that made it look a little cheap.
However, the staff was really sweet. We only recommend you check it out if you are a major fan of the brand. If not, you aren’t missing much! Happy shopping!

The high-end brand sample sales are harder to come by than contemporary ones. Therefore, the vintage Chanel & Hermes sale hosted by Shelly & Renee is probably the closest you could get to an actual Chanel sample sale. There was only one table of handbags ranging in the $1K-$5K price points, a rack of Chanel jackets (in the $1,500 range), dresses, 4 or 5 pairs of shoes in random sizes. What the sale had more of was fur coats (in the $2,700 range), dresses from designers that include Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and more. Many of the gowns were under $500, even though there were plenty of clothing items selling for thousands of dollars. If you are looking for very high-end couture, you have until the end of the week to check it out.
