Mignonne Gavigan Sample Sale – Statement Everything

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Mignonne Gavigan Sample Sale at 401 Broadway. The sample sale is hosted in the brands showroom so be warned that it is a cramped space. The jewelry is very extra, to say the least. The earrings come in various bright colors with lots of feathers, tassels and jewels. While we were disappointed with some of the pricing of the earrings. The classic “Madeline Beaded” earrings were discounted from $225 to $100, but there were tons of other options for under $50! The Mignonne Gavigan merchandise is beautifully crafted and will most definitely make a statement when you wear there pieces.

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. The pricing was still high but there was a lot of good accessories. If you are looking for some earrings, necklaces and accessories that are gonna make people say wow, you should stop by!

Frame Sample Sale – Didn’t You Know? Canadian Tuxedos are Back!

By: Ashley Randall 

We had the chance to get an early preview of the Frame Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. The sale officially. The sale officially opened this morning at 10 AM. To start off, Frame makes great jeans as well as some nice tops. We were disappointed to find that there were only six racks of jeans in comparison to last years sale. As well, the prices for the jeans went up an additional five dollars from last year. The sample selection of jeans was limited as well but there were a good selection of tops and outerwear. The saving grace of the sale was the men’s section! Lots of cute chinos and denim for all your men.

Overall, we rated this sale a 6 out of 10. The jeans are $75 dollars down from $295 but there is a limited selection. If any man in your life is looking for a pair of jeans, we recommend you stop by! We are still dreaming about the white jeans with the feathered bottoms and hoping for some reductions in the next coming days.

The Clothingline Sample Sale has a Variety of Brands

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Clothingline multi-brand sample sale is a mish-mosh of the good, the bad, and the ugly. While some brands have great stuff for amazing prices, other brands have hideous pieces for even more hideous prices. 

This sample sale includes the following brands: Petersyn, Sundays, Pam and Gela, Vivienne Hu, Minnie Rose, Walter Baker, Generation Love, Lele Sadoughi, and leftovers from the R13 sample sale that started weeks ago. Here’s the quick rundown: Petersyn, awesome stuff for great prices. Sundays: super cute, cheap loungewear. Pam and Gela: cute stuff but way overpriced. Vivienne Hu: ugly rip off. Minnie Rose: cute and cozy but too expensive. Walter Baker: funky leather jackets for a good price. Generation Love: meh merchandise but priced well. Lele Sadoughi: cheap looking expensive jewelry. R13: markdowns are great and the prices are finally where they should be. 

Overall I’m giving this sale a 6/10. While some stuff is beautiful and amazingly priced, other stuff is really crappy and way too expensive. It is a strange mix of brands; I wouldn’t bank on leaving with something you love.

The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!

Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale – Is It Overhyped?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale all the way over in Brooklyn. This was the first time that this sale has happened since 2016. Everybody is dying to know if the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale is worth the hype and we now have the insider scoop.

First off, the sale is held in Brooklyn so you’re gonna plan accordingly. While I was first expecting a mob scene, it was actually not that busy. They have designer clothing ranging from IRO to Stella McCartney and Prada plus everything in between. The merchandise is organized by size and type and the staff is very helpful. The pricing on most items is good, but then again a $2,000 dress for $450 is still expensive. Secondly, there are no shoes and accessories. Say what? Yes, let me repeat myself, there are no shoes and accessories at this sale. As well there are no dressing rooms so you have to try on your finds in plain sight.

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10. They have amazing high end designer merchandise, you just have to have the patience to dig through the racks. If you are hunting for a nice Paco Robanne dress or a Valentino matching set, you should look no further.
