Get Your Dress Game On at the Parker Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Summer is back at the Parker sample sale.  There are so many casual and evening dresses to choose from in their large, and chic midtown showroom. If you have a bunch of weddings coming up, this is the sale for you. The most expensive dresses were evening gowns at $180! We can’t even believe it. Parker had a mix of samples and regular stock. Dresses weren’t the only thing on the menu; you can also shop tops, bottoms, jumpsuits, rompers, outerwear, and coverups. Most of the sample were in great condition and $50 or under.

We rated this sample sale an 8 out of 10. Merchandise was excellent: plenty of options and very beautiful pieces! Prices were also very fair. Most items are summer pieces, so you do have to wait until next year to sport it. On the other hand, with the holidays coming up you can stock up on dresses. Happy shopping!

Improvements Have Been Made at the Rent the Runway Sample Sale

Rent the Runway Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We gave the last Rent the Runway sample sale a pretty dismal review. We think enough people complained (including us) to 260 about the quality of the merchandise. For the record, we still found damaged items, but not nearly as many as the last sale. Additionally, we didn’t spot any dirty clothing. Now, maybe they will listen to us about pricing. This is obviously used clothing. Prices NEED to be lowered more. Also, stop pricing things $49.98. It’s tacky. Make it either $49 or $50.

We rated the Rent the Runway sample sale a 5 out of 10. Where they improved in quality and there was no line out the door, they need to improve in price and use of space. This is one of the few sales that offers almost every size. 260 should run this sale out of their Wooster St. location, because it has a downstairs. Breaking up the sizes on two different floors will help east the chaos in store. Again, we found ourselves climbing over people to look through the racks. The other shoppers were vicious too! We were trying to shop and got so much attitude from the other shoppers. It was helpful to have the sale organized by size. It made our search a little easier. We also like that they have have a wide rage of sizes and styles. So you can really find something for anyone and any occasion. Don’t go out of your way for this. Wait for price reductions, or stop in if you have time or are in the area.  Happy shopping!
