The (Not So) Clever Alice Sale

By: Eve Orbach

When one of the first things you hear upon entering a sale is “the golden rule is to NOT trust the sizing”, you know you’re not off to a great start. The Clever Alice pop up features multiple brands such as Stellah, PORTO, Vivienne Hu, Inizio, Raw Earth Wild Sky, and more at discounts of up to 80%. Featured items include sweaters, skirts, tops, dresses, jackets, and bags. The prices really varied by item and brand, but as a whole I would say the deals were simply 😐. 

The sale is organized by brand and clothing item. Every piece is hung up neatly on hangers. The staff is super helpful to the point where I literally didn’t have to carry any item for more than .2 seconds, when it would then kindly be whisked away to the fitting room. The fitting room does not have a mirror inside, so every time I tried something on I had to go out and do a little fashion show in front of every person in the store. (There were definitely a few not too approving looks given to me by some of the other customers, lol. To each their own, guys!)

There honestly is nothing too notable about this one. If you’re in the area it may be worth popping by because they have some good pieces. Overall though the issues with the sizing were pretty frustrating and the deals were by and large underwhelming. Hopefully once the sample sale season kicks back up again there will be bigger and better ones to come!

The New York Multi-Brand Sample Sale is one for the Books

By: Jacqueline Munro

Simply put, the New York Multi-Brand Sale was great. There was a wide variety of products ranging from jewelry to coffee mugs to dresses, and there were price points to fit everyone’s budget. There was a $10 rack with some really cool pieces, and a rack with pieces starting as low as $20. But if you’re in the market for something more expensive and luxurious, there was stuff for you too! There were plenty of gorgeous pieces from designers like Dolce and Gabbana, Cushnie, and Chanel. Oh, and in my opinion, the best part was the pair of Jacquemus straw totes in the corner of the room. They had the large size and the mini one. EEP!

In addition to the great merchandise and fabulous pricing, the layout of the sale was really cool. I loved the way everything was organized, and the host was very sweet. She will make you feel very welcomed and she was very accommodating. Overall I gave this sale an 8/10. The products were very diverse and very well priced. What more could you ask for?!
