The Aquazzura Sample Sale is Ridiculously Over Overpriced

By: Jacqueline Munro

In classic 260 fashion, the Aquazzura sample sale prices are way too high. Prices start at $180 and range all the way up to $485. And while $180 doesn’t sound terrible, the majority of the shoes were between $220 and $275. In my opinion that is just absurd. This is a sample sale people!?? I mean, has that word completely lost its meaning?

Despite the disappointing prices though, the selection of merchandise was quite wonderful. I walked in and felt like I was suddenly swimming in a sea of Aquazzura boxes. Not only was there a nice array of styles, but there were also tons of sizes starting at 34 and going up to 41! I was very pleased with the selection of powder puff shoes. They were stocked with various heel heights and plenty of colors, but I felt like $230 for them was just too much! They also had lots of PVC shoes which are still super in.

Overall I rated this sale a 6.5/10. If you’re an Aquazzura fanatic who always pays full price, you might feel like it is worth it to go. But if you’re someone like me who loves the shoes but can’t afford to pay full price, don’t go because you won’t be able to afford the sample sale prices either!!!!

Alexandre Birman Sample Sale has Gorgeous Options for Everyone

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Alexandre Birman sample sale is simply amazing, I’ve never seen such a heavenly sight. There are a ton of stunning shoes ranging from size 5 to size 12.5 — I didn’t even know brands made shoes in women’s size 12.5! If you missed out on our VIP access to this sale, make sure you purchase the monthly package so that you don’t keep passing up opportunities for early entry to great sales like this one!

This sample sale is taking place in a huge showroom in Chelsea. There is a seemingly endless amount of tables filled with shoes lining each wall, and they are all organized by size. Staff members are stationed at each table and they are more than willing to help you find the right pair of shoes. My favorite pieces at the sale are all booties, but there are also amazing pumps, sandals, and espadrilles. There are lots of classic styles as well as some more eccentric ones. From colorful snakeskin wedges to black suede boots you’re sure to find something you’ll love.

Overall I’m giving this sale an 8/10. The pricing is good, and the selection is unreal. Furthermore, not having to deal with nasty employees or a terrible ambiance like at 260 made everything 100x more enjoyable. Definitely check out this sale ASAP; I have a feeling it is going to be popular and you DON’T want to miss out.
