Though these light linen dresses made us feel as if we were ready to tan in the sun while relaxing on a beach.

We rated the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale a 6.5 out of 10. The sale did have a large selection and assortment of fun and unique bathing suits, and they were honestly the best deal at the Mara Hoffman Sample Sale.While the clothing was cute it was extremely limited to the warmer seasons and high in price. There was a long line outside to wait on as well as inside for the dressing rooms.

Stripes and Gingham Galore – The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale

By Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the combined Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale downtown at 151 Wooster Street. Dreamy and colorful patterned apparel lined all the racks, a majority of which were dresses, skirts and tops.

The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale felt as if you were transported from the rainy streets of New York to a bright and sunny day at the beach. The sale offered a lot of chic striped and gingham patterned merchandise. Caroline Constas offered both clothing from her collection as well as a section full of samples. The Caroline Constas samples were more limited and cheaper than the normal collection. Lemlem had a large collection of both maxi dresses, rompers and beach accessories but a limited selection of shoes.

We rated the Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. The clothing was incredibly cute and chic but offered limited variation, especially Lemlem who seemed to only have striped merchandise. The apparel offered by both Caroline Constas and Lemlem felt as if it were designed solely for the summer months. The merchandise was still priced quite high and there was an extremely long line for both the fitting room and register. Yet all the  merchandise made us feel as if we were relaxing in the Hamptons with a glass of rosé in hand. If you are in need of chic summer clothing and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

Hilton Hollis sample sale

By: Cristina Martin 

It’s a beautiful day for shopping here in NYC. Browsing through the Hilton Hollis sample sale in comfortable AC is a nice break from the July temperatures. Did I mention we will give you an extra 10% off? Yes, you read that right! All ShopDrop users will get an extra 10% off when the app is shown at check out.

Now that I have your interest, let’s chat about the sale.

We gave the the Hilton Hollis sample sale a 8 out of 10 ShopDrop Rating. The prices were really good! Regular stock was about 80% off.  Samples ranged from $40 – $200. (Retail prices are $100 – $1,400) The space was small, but packed with a bunch of merchandise. The Hilton Hollis sample sale ton of regular stock, but only one rack of samples. Here’s a secrete: some regular stock items made it to the sample rack. 😉 Leave your husband, boyfriend, or friend at home. No men allowed inside due to the fact that there are no proper changing rooms. My friend tagged along, and poor guy had to wait in the hall. Yet again, the staff was so friendly! Overall very positive shopping experience.

Kenneth Cole Sample Sale – What a Garage Sale in NYC Looks Like

Kenneth Cole sample sale NYC review shopdrop app

The Kenneth Cole sample sale is taking place in a garage West of 11th Ave on 50th Street. That means a lot of trekking to the edge of Manhattan from any major subway line. The plus side though is that the sale is in a spacious location (which doesn’t really happen in NYC) with plenty of merchandise and great music. Unlike most sales, I actually enjoyed spending time at the sale and browsing through the merchandise. The room is split into half between merchandise for men and women. Solid sizing selection as well both for clothes and shoes.

Where: 611 West 50th St, NY, NY

Here’s the pricing breakdown:

  • 50% off for shoes (retail between $75 and $389)

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

    Photo: Style Du Monde

    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 
    Photo: Christian Vierig/Getty Images

    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.
