We got a sneak peak preview to the designer lingerie showroom for some high-end swimsuits and lingerie set. We were able to find the best finds on swimsuits, with some very hot brands (who we were not allowed to mention).
If you are planning a vacation sometime soon and want to show off your bod in some super-cool swimsuit, this sale is one you should definitely hit up.
Sizing: Since this is a legitimate showroom, most of the items are sample sizes in smalls and mediums.
Items & Pricing: Swimwear, PJs, and lingerie from Jimmy Choo, Zegna and a few more brands we’re not supposed to talk about. Prices were up to 80% off retail so you could expect to find a few nice items for $50.
Since everyone and their mother flocked to the LXR and Co sample sale, The Line sample sale had… no line. The Line had absolutely beautiful pieces from various designers. You can shop from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana. If you were a big Protagonist fan, then you were in luck. Protagonist filled the racks. You can also shop home, accessories, books, and shoes.
We rated The Line sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The selection was magnificent and the space wasn’t that crowded. Prices were a bit high, but with good markdowns from 70% – 75%. The Line sample sale scored most of their points in the fantastic selection of merchandise. Opening day of The Line sample sale was the same day that NYC got hurricane Florance rain. The 260 staff had the nerve to kick people out in the pouring rain. Shoppers just wanted to wait a little bit until it passed. The 260 staff, instead of asking everyone nicely to not block the door, decided to yell at everyone to leave because they have umbrellas. In that monsoon, an umbrella will not help much. However, as usual, that’s 260 being their usual rude selves. Happy shopping!

The Eugenia Kim Sample Sale had whimsical summer hats that made us picture ourselves sitting on the French Riviera with a buttery croissant and cafe un latte, while the winter hats made us feel like we were wandering the snowy streets after completing some holiday shopping.

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly covetedReformation Sample Sale,but sadly we were let down. We had to stand in the blazing, boiling, burning heat for hours. Clothing by Reformation is seen all over Instagram, featured by renowned bloggers such as Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and Jacey Duprie of DamselinDior and those alike.
As we stood on Greene street dying a slow and very warm death, we pondered the question. Is the Reformation Sample Sale worth it? After consulting with shoppers leaving, philosophers thinking and our inner selves, we have arrived at the definitive conclusion – absolutely not. Yes, the clothing is very cute, extremely chic and seen all over social media. No one, not even our worst enemies should be forced to stand in boiling heat, unless they’re at the beach getting a nice tan with a margarita in hand. As you probably followed from our Instagram stories, Zara and Reformation make merchandise that are extremely similar in pattern, color and style. The best perk is that Zara is way cheaper.
We rated the Reformation Sample Sale a 3 out of 10. You would think based on the line that wrapped around the block, that they were giving away free puppies and ice cream. But no: no puppies, no ice cream. If you don’t have time to melt on the sidewalks of NYC, we recommend you go to Zara and check out their merchandise. Even better, sit on your couch, pour yourself a nice bloody glass of rosé and shop online!
