Morgane Le Fay is a high-end womenswear retailer, famous for bold designs in classic neutrals. Oversized jackets, ready-to-wear avant-garde gowns, and sheer patterned tops line the racks of this Soho-based store. The Morgane Le Fay sample sale, taking place right at 464 Broome Street, will be open until September 8th. The sample sale is stocked with a variety of pieces from older seasons, and in sizes ranging from extra small to large.
Morgane Le Fay pieces generally retail starting at $1000, so sample sale prices range between $140 for simpler pieces, such as crop tops, to $350 for full-length gowns. Clothes have a focus on a strikingly sharp-cut silhouette, and pieces are made to flatter any body type while maintaining a distinctly modern cut. The iconic sheer tops with delicately subtle patterns are timeless and elegant, ensuring they’ll last for seasons to come.
Though most items are from previous seasons, Morgane Le Fay’s neutral color palettes make it easy to repurpose summer pieces for colder seasons. The store even has a collection of plaid and flannel pieces on sale, which make perfect staples for any casual fall look. The oversized jackets are a must-have for the upcoming winter months, and with the prices steeply discounted from retail, now’s the best time to invest in one.

I’m not sure if the summer season and the sample sale gods are friends or they’re on the love/hate battlefield, but I’m having a huge dilemma. That is? I don’t have enough weekends left to wear these color block pieces I’m obsessing over at the JADE Swim Sample sale, located at the Chelsea Market (15th street and 9th ave). Starting today, Wednesday August 30th (10:30AM—7:00PM) — Sunday September 3rd 2017 (10:30AM-5:00PM) I suggest you walk over there if possible while reading, its a promised good sale, guaranteed and the atmosphere is so fun! Chelsea Market is the ultimate playground to shop in!
Lets start with our shopper PQQ- price, quality and quantity. The price list, super straight forward. Separate pieces are $29 and $59 for a one piece. If we were to compare retail prices? Their one-side Apex swimsuit’s retail price dives into the deep side of the sea, at $198, but now? $59! All yours! The Micro one-piece retails for $220 and the Chain Reaction V Neck one-piece, $150. Now, $59 for all! Also, the separate pieces ( I suggest mix & match) range in retail price from $75-110, and now selling out at this sample sale for? $29 !!! Insanity. I could not be more happy writing this to all of our shoppers!
Ultimate steal, right? I cannot wait for you to have first dibs. Even though its preferred not to try on the swim, there are dressing rooms in the back and I suggest putting it over undergarments to make sure you’re getting your right size! There is plenty in stock for all sizes, the white suits are seemingly running low, however every other color is in attendance. Also, the quality is undeniably beautiful, I mean we all know JADE swimwear as one of the hottest fashion competitors in the industry rated highly by InStyle Magazine. Trust us, or trust that toned gut you’ve been working out all summer, this sale is amazing!
Sizes run from Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large but it did look like they’re made smaller than average. The color palette that you’ll see is beyond perfection. The ocean blue, the strawberry red, the sand tan. (yes I’m making these names up, but i promise you’ll envision this exact color from this fun description) Then you have your super cool, “This is me not trying, I’m an natural” collection giving you LIFE with our favorite core colors, matte black, bright white and a really moss olive that if you ever get stranded on an island, you’ll be so in-tune with the color of nature.
What I love most are the styles, the sharp cuts that make an edgy yet curvy look under the sun. I know, groundbreaking!
Cinderella for the day, Shoe Box Sample Sale, we’re looking for the perfect pair!

One of the most exciting sales yet! The Shoe Box has collaborated with 260 5th ave, the hub of all sample sales, tempting us to tower stack our closet shelves with even more shoes. As soon as you enter the sale, you’ll see, 1 pair for $80 and 2 pairs for $140. Any shoe, boot, sandal, flat, classic, sneaker, furry slipper, the list really goes on and yes they really mean any pair for this price!

The sale offers women sizes ranging from 5-11, keep in mind that not all of the sizes have the same options, however there were enough styles/trendy seasonal options to go around. *Oprah’s voice* “You get a pair! You get a pair!” The crowd goes wild*
I must mention SCHUTZ (average retail at $170 per pump) leading the sale and bringing the real heat to a summers end! As soon as I walked in, I routinely snap pictures of any shoe that catches my eye, and after I make another round looking for all my favorite designers. FYI, SCHUTZ had the largest selection available and shined in all the spotlight:
For more of my favorite finds, take a look at all of the shoe candy below: Designers to lookout for: The ShoeBox, of course! Rebecca Minkoff (avg. retail price $130 a pair), Loeffler Randall (avg. retail price $250 and above), Daya by Zendaya, Vince Camuto, and new fresh designers in the mix.

I just stopped in for some eye candy window retail at Lemlem’s sample sale located at the studio (3rd floor) on 495 Broadway (heart of Soho), which lasts until 7:00pm today. I must say, Lemlem is an airy fairy Hampton’s goddess, martini gal and fashion force to be reckoned with!

Lemlem you are such a breath of fresh air ! Amazing sales!
Other than Lemlem’s apparel showcasing its best of the best highlighter colors on soft linen sheer rompers, dresses, joggers and blouses, I can’t comment enough on how easy the shopping experience was. Everything was spaced out, deserving of their own spotlight and the chart below shows pricing for all accessory lovers 🙂 Upfront in your face like hey, no excuses now, buy me today!
Even though theres no private try on area, the minute you hold up one of Lemlem’s statement pieces in the mirror, the gold jewelry display is right beside you, and all of sudden you lose your marbles, —fair warning. Speaking of marble, there’s a beautiful gray marble table, displaying Lemlems very own summer staple, airy beach joggers! Definitely a buy! The pictures below scream, I’m not your boring gray sweatpants for the winter, wear me right now. Also, look out for the treasure box with the cute little bralets. Lemlem you have it all covered for the summer!

Y-7’s first ever warehouse sale? I couldn’t believe it either, because it was executed to perfection! You can visit the Y-7 warehouse sample sale located at the original Hip-Hop Yoga Studio (Y7 HQ, 262 Bowery, 4th Floor, NY, NY) starting today Tuesday August 15th- Wednesday August 16th; and trust me when I say this, you feel the “namast-ay fly” aesthetic as soon as you walk in. Need I mention their too-good-to-be-true negotiation with the weather? I mean, the temptation to purchase a sweater on a rainy day like today from a vast selection of all-black comfy Y-7 sweatshirts/hoodies with trendy slogan designs?! Y-7 for the win!
But, lets back it up a bit, trekking 4 stair flights up to the warehouse; Y-7 definitely knows its customers, getting everyone to kick a sweat before the goods and glory sales. Ice-cold tea samples (RUNA) served right before the race to the racks is most definitely a well-thought-out refresher of choice, another check for Y-7. As you head inside, the atmosphere gets you bumping and flowing to the most popular genre of music in the U.S right now, Hip-Hop!! Yep, its pretty damn ideal.
I walked in with a mission, to get all the information on site on behalf of the ShopDrop team, and completely got distracted when I saw this Kanye sweater “inspo.” It was Kanye West in pretzel position, hell yeah!! Y-7 is definitely onto something, unique and genius! Lucky for me, there was only 1 small left, so I dropped everything and called grabs! Don’t worry, I took tons of pictures, just for you to see! I mean 40% off today? 50% off tomorrow? I couldn’t resist.
For the rest of the apparel, sizes range from XS-XL in most styles including the hoodies/sweatshirts/tour-style t-shirts, sweats, leggings and sports bras. The prices have taken a steep downfall from $250 retail to $16 or less in apparel and accessories (headbands, face towels, bookbags, candles, phone cases, beanie hats, pins). ShopDrop has you covered ! You definitely want to yoga, sleep, study, eat, netflix in this gear!
P.S. The best part of this sample sale is getting to know the brand! Y-7 established itself in 2013, opening studios all over NYC and LA and has been featured in all the best magazines, (Cosmo, Forbes, InStyle), including Vogue, quoting ” Yoga For People Who Put On Gangsta Rap and Handle It.” It truly cant get better than a recommendation from Vogue, you’ll be surprised how much of a spirit animal this brand can be for you when you shop their gear! Happy Shopping friends!

Descending to the basement of the Katya Dobryakova store on Broome street, we were greeted by a large room, which held the multi-designer sample sale. One thing united all the stands: each one had one-of-a-kind merchandise.
We first chatted with Ariana Boussard-Reifel, who designed the bangles Beyonce wore to the Grammys. Aside from being extremely friendly, her jewelry is stunning! She sells bangles, earrings and rings all made out of metal. Each item is raw and sharp in its design. I couldn’t help myself and bought a pair of gorgeous silver earrings: long oval hoops that instantly made me feel extremely dressed up. All of her items were sold at a steep 80% discount! Yes, that means that items which typically sell for $500 were now selling for $125.
After that we headed to the podium at the back of the showroom, where we discovered the most stunning collection of designer sweatshirts. We had the opportunity to chat with the founder and designer, Katya Dobryakova, about her brand. Unlike most designers, Katya didn’t start her career in fashion, rather, she started in graphic design. Her dream was to transplant the detail of graphics into clothing. And her brand is exactly that. This year’s collection is themed around the circus and her sweatshirts have the most exquisite circus-themed designs. They are all machine-washable, easy to take care of and create a gorgeous effortless look. At the sample sale, they were sold at an 80% discount. So at $100, they were a steal. If you have the time to get to Broome street, do it. You will have no regrets.
For the vintage lovers out there, Marteau was selling some awesome pieces from the 40s in America, Ethiopia and the Middle East. From beads to pearls to knits, there are items for every taste and every budget. There are awesome finds for $25 dollars each! In addition to those designers, there were other items from Alyssa Less, KZ_K, Meredith Marks, Les Savage, Raul Penaranda.
If Monday is as difficult for you as it is for the rest of us, fear not. There are many wonderful sample sales and shopping events taking place this week. There, you’ll be able to stock up on some low-cost designer items in advance of Spring, which just doesn’t want to come. There are five action items that would maximize anyone’s return on invested time. So below are a few, and I’m always interested in hearing more ideas… so ping me, follow me on Instagram @shopdropapp and shoot me your ideas. Yours always, Estee <3
Shop sample sales
Sample sales are the best-kept secret of gorgeous looking fashionistas. Most brands, yes, even Canali, DVF & Hermes hold sample sales in fashion capitals once or twice a year. The merchandise is sold at a whooping 70%-90% discount. Knowing where to find them sales is a key to looking chic without spending chic. There are a few things that can maximize your results though… and they require that you be prepared to shop wisely.
Do your research
Before you head to a sample sale, find out which brand or brands are being featured. See if you like any of the items. Find out if the sale sells stock or sample sizes (most sample sales now sell stock). I recommend having an app that lists all sample sales installed on your phone. Once or twice a week, check in and put interesting sales on your calendar.
Stay tuned for outliers
If there is something on sale at the end of the season, chances are, there will be more of a selection in non-standard sizes. My mother-in-law has a 10.5 size foot, and sample sales for shoes are her heaven. You could find the most exquisite and exclusive designs for ridiculous prices if your feet are either ‘too big’ or ‘too small’. If you want to see the maximum selection, go on the first day.
Know your budget
If you want to spend $5-$10 on an item, then look out for flea markets, blowout sales, and final markdowns. Oftentimes, the last day of a sample sale will be accompanied with additional mark-offs. If your goal is getting the Hermes scarf, then stand in that line, and get to the sale as early as you can.
Set your expectations
The tradeoff of buying luxury items at sample sales is losing the experience. No one will fuss over you at a sample sale bringing you every item you could dream of. Most probably, you will have to change in a public changing room, will have to be swift in your choices and stand in line to check out. If you ask us, it’s definitely worth the 70%-90% discount you’ll get in the long run. And if you set your expectations correctly, the experience will be fun!
