Summer in the City: The Sea New York Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We face that age old problem everyday: closet full of clothes, but you have nothing to wear. Well, If you’re facing that dreadful issue this summer, visit the Sea New York sample sale.  There are so many fabulous summer finds that will have you looking chic for the rest of the summer!

The space was under construction because it’s the future site of the Sea New York brick and mortar. Even with the construction, you can still shop with ease. Prices started at $45 and went up to $350. Sizes ran on the smaller size, ranging from 2 – 8. Along with the summer collection, they also featured some great denim pieces. The Sea New York sample sale is defiantly worth a visit. You can never have too many summer clothes. Happy shopping!

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Scotch and Soda ShopDrop

Come Down and Have Some Fun at the Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Head over to the Scotch and Soda sample sale, if not for the great deals, but for the eye candy! Since this sale had mostly men’s clothing, there were a quite a few cuties shopping. Anyway… back to the sale. I was very impressed with the Scotch and Soda sample sale. There were a ton of great pieces for both men and women, and for both Summer and Winter. The Scotch and Soda sample sale is being held in their showroom, so the place is rather small and can get kinda hot (no pun intended). There are no formal dressing rooms. You kinda just try stuff on whereever. That’s not so bad when you’re standing around a bunch of shirtless men, but if you are the shy type, wear a bodysuit under your clothing.

The Scotch and Soda sample sale got a 7 out of 10 on the ShopDrop scale. The prices were good (most stuff under $40!) and the selection was great! I docked some points for a disappointing accessories section. They had two plastic bins with a few belts and super random items. Their showroom is also fairly large, but they only sectioned off a small area for the sale. They had the space and could have put more items on sale. That being said, the Scotch and Soda Sample sale is totally worth checking out. Head over to Union Square tomorrow, and maybe you will catch the farmer’s market too! Deets below!

Three Trends We Hope Aren’t Here to Stay for Long

By: Cristina Martin

Spring and Summer are right around the corner, even though it may not feel like it in New York. We can’t wait to shed off all our layers and show off what we are actually wearing under all these coats. Although the spring season allows for the streets to be our runway, we are not so excited to see some of these current trends. They are here to stay, but hopefully not for long.

  1. Dad Sneakers

    Dad sneakers, who came up with this?! We personally just don’t understand this trend. There are so many cute sneakers out there. Even Balenciaga can’t tempt us to surrender to this trend. Why are people giving into this trend? Who really wants to dress like their Dad?

  2. Plastic

    This is another trend we really don’t understand. Plastic was once seen as a “cheap” alternative, but somehow it has evolved from or Diet Coke bottles to designer fashion. We understood the plastic handbag trend. (Guilty of owning the Ted Baker plastic toat.) Why incoporate plastic into your clothes? Doesn’t that make you hot?! (No punn intended)
    Plastic? Maybe not so fantastic…

  3. Sheer

    Okay, okay, we were guilty of following this trend as well when it was popular in the early 2000s. However, we don’t want to see it resurface. It is exhusting to have to find the perfect undergarment to make your sheer look “appropriate.” We don’t have time to find the perfect cardigan, or shop for camisoles in 100 colors. No thank you. We just want to wear one piece of clothing and go about our day.
