The Joie, Equipment, and Current Elliot sample sale is absolutely amazing. I have never been to a sample sale this good, especially not at 260. If you weren’t sure whether or not you should go to this one, I’m telling you that you 100% should.
At this sale, the prices are outrageously great. Here are some examples of these jaw-dropping deals: Equipment blouses are $60, Current Elliot jeans are $45, and Joie long sleeved tops are $50. Now usually, if the prices are good the merchandise is bad and vice versa. But that is not the case at this sale, the selection of clothing from each brand is drool-worthy. My favorite pieces are all from Equipment, but Joie and Current Elliot have things that I love too. And before you think it can’t get any better, embellished pieces aren’t marked up! There are lots of Joie tops with intricate pearl detailing and they’re the same price as every other long sleeved top! How amazing, and unlike 26, is that?! Finally, there is also a really cute selection of shoes and accessories at the sale. They have a crocodile embossed tote bag that is so nice and so affordable.
Overall I’m giving this sale a 9/10. I am a little sad about the purchasing limit because I want everything!!!! But aside from that, this sale is literally perfect. So ladies, get ready to sneak out of work on your lunch break tomorrow to shop this sale. If you get fired, it will totally have been worth it. Happy shopping friends!
The prices at the R13 sample sale are very disappointing, but at least there is a decent selection of merchandise. I kept getting confused between the menswear and womenswear; not that you can’t wear either regardless of your gender. But an employee called me out for grabbing a men’s sweatshirt in a very embarrassing way.
At this sale, they have more jeans than anything else; there are several tables lining the middle of the showroom with tons of denim. They’re selling a pair for $125 which is just too much money. At the Current Elliot sample sale (currently going on at 260) jeans are going for $45 which is, on average, 80% off their retail prices. And they’re definitely just as nice as R13 jeans when it comes to quality. The fact that the R13 sweatshirts are selling for $125 is insulting. I mean they’re comfy, but definitely not worth a sample sale price of $125. Oh, and their famous lace-up boots are $395. So if you were thinking of getting a pair for a reasonable price, I’m sorry to say this, but it isn’t happening at this sale.
Overall, I’m giving this sale a 5/10. The prices are outrageous and the staff members are rude. If you were really excited about this sale and are still contemplating going, at least wait for the additional markdowns Thursday (which I overheard a staff member confirm).
