Halston Heritage Sample Sale: Iconic Style at Affordable Prices

By: Cristina Martin

Clothingline is hosting the Halston Heritage sample sale for a few days just before Thanksgiving. You would be crazy not to attend this sale! Merchandise was amazing and the prices were even better. Halston is an iconic brand that was in it’s prime in the 1970s. Then it came back in the spotlight when Sarah Jessica Parker wore a Halston dress in Sex and The City. Who can really resist Carrie Bradshaw fever?!

There was plenty of beautiful pieces at the Halston Heritage sample sale. Dresses which retail for around $500 – $600, but at the sale, you can buy both evening and cocktail dresses for under $100. Shoes and handbags were on sale for $20 – $30. The selection was a little less for bags, but you can still find some staple pieces. We know Black Friday and Cyber Monday is coming up, but this sale is definitely worth a visit! Happy shopping and happy Thanksgiving!

Italy has Come to America with the Components by John McCoy Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

You can find a little piece of Italy just under the Upper East Side at the Components by John McCoy sample sale. Shop beautiful, Italian casual wear and suits for both men and women. However, the most extensive selection is in menswear. Ladies, you browse through top, bottoms, jackets, and accessories. Women’s clothing was mostly casual, but some pieces can be worn for work and then transformed to dinner with the girls. They also had the cutest little handbags perfect for a night out on the town. We even stumbled upon a wine bottle holder for 20 bucks. Now that’s something we’ve never seen! Men’s had a larger selection with a few racks of suits and jackets and tables with pants, sweaters, and shirts. Full suits were a steal at $300. You can choose from thicker, winter suits, and suits you can wear all year around.

We gave the Components by John McCoy sample sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large variety of high-quality clothing. If you’re in the market for everyday clothing that has a different flare, this is the sale for you. Prices are pretty standard. You can even catch the staff speaking in Italian if you’re lucky. Happy shopping!

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review The Row

Designer Goods at Designer Prices at The Row

The Row Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Sample Sales are always a great place to get designer items at a major discount, which can help those who can’t always afford to shop designer. These discounts were not to be found at The Row sample sale. Even with an apparent discount of 70% off all Ready to Wear, handbags, and footwear, I could not find anything under $500. The Row is the clothing line of famed twins, Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. The pair are known for their high fashion taste and their collection does not disappoint in that facet. The sale was organized by size and item. Racks with sizes XS, S, M, and L lined the lines with tables of sweaters, bags, and shoes in the middle and front. The pieces were understated and in muted colors, ranging from blacks, grays, blues, whites, and creams.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a wide selection, the pieces were still extremely expensive and nothing stood out as exceptional. It was also interesting to note that the sale was empty, which hopefully goes as a sign that the prices were not good enough to attempt major crowds. The sale also did not allow photos, which might have made it difficult to shop for someone else.

Reminisce back to Summer at the Jack Rogers Sample Sale

Jack Rogers Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Do you think we can squeeze in a few more days of flipflop use in this rather warm October? I think not. The cold might be here to stay, but you can still head over to the Jack Rogers sample sale and cure that nostalgia with some shopping. Jack Rogers is known for their adorable leather sandals. All shoes were $40. Handbags were also $40 and backpacks were $30. If you purchase 4 or more pairs of shoes you get 50% off your entire order. Not a bad deal! The Jack Rogers sample sale also had the cutest little rain booties. If you like to stand out, then red and yellow are for you. If you’re more into laying low, then definitely go for the beautiful power pink ones.

We rated the Jack Rogers sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. It’s a great sale if you’re a fan of the brand. Good prices and lots of great merchandise. Sizes went from 5 to 11, but there was an abundance in size 7. Additionally, you can look through a few bins of clothing for $5, $25, and $45 to see if something suits your fancy. We do have to report that they were having an issue with their credit card machine. Being that the sale is credit card only, they were taking down your credit card information to then charge you later. They did promise to destroy all credit card information once the transaction has been processed. Happy shopping!

Fashion Karolina Zmarlak Khirma New York Meredith Marks Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Convertible and Reversible fun at the Karolina Zmarlak

Karolina Zmarlak sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

We stopped by the Karolina Mzarlak studio today to check out Karolina Zmarlak, Khirma New York, and Meredith Marks sample sale. With the three brands present, there was plenty of inventory to choose from. From apparel to handbags to furs. The handbags were beautiful ranging from large leather purses to Swarovski crystal encrusted clutches. The ready-to-wear was equally stunning with plenty of pieces for every palette. What particularly stuck out to me was the convertible and reversible items. Many of the clothing options were able to be worn both inside-out and backwards. There were also pieces were the longer sleeve could be fastened into a bow on the back or draped over the shoulder. The clothes could be transformed to satisfy even the wildest imagination.

We rated the sale a 6 out of 10 because of the inventive pieces and the steep prices. While it was reported that the pieces were 75% off, they were still too high for this shopper. But if the prices are no deterrent, make sure to RSVP by emailing, rsvp@karolinazmarlak.com, before stopping by!

Shoe Heaven for Size 9 at the Jerome Dreyfuss Sample Sale

Jerome Dreyffus, the brand over which Hillary Swank obsesses, hosted a sample sale in SoHo this week. Although we only made it to the sale on the very last day, we still got a feel for the beautiful aura of the Jerome Dreyffus brand. Located in SoHo and occupying two store lots, the sample sale took place within the Jerome Dreyfuss boutique. The setup was original: an open rectangle with handbags of all sizes and shapes – these are true samples and they are 60%-80% off retail prices, which leaves them at $110-$400 at the sample sale. Along the rectangle on the floor were shoes, boots and sneakers – flats, heels and wedges. These were priced between $150 and $350  -and all of them were size 9. We’ll try to hit up the next sale before the last day so you could still reap the benefits! Prices and images below. Enjoy!
