Frame Sample Sale – Didn’t You Know? Canadian Tuxedos are Back!

By: Ashley Randall 

We had the chance to get an early preview of the Frame Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. The sale officially. The sale officially opened this morning at 10 AM. To start off, Frame makes great jeans as well as some nice tops. We were disappointed to find that there were only six racks of jeans in comparison to last years sale. As well, the prices for the jeans went up an additional five dollars from last year. The sample selection of jeans was limited as well but there were a good selection of tops and outerwear. The saving grace of the sale was the men’s section! Lots of cute chinos and denim for all your men.

Overall, we rated this sale a 6 out of 10. The jeans are $75 dollars down from $295 but there is a limited selection. If any man in your life is looking for a pair of jeans, we recommend you stop by! We are still dreaming about the white jeans with the feathered bottoms and hoping for some reductions in the next coming days.

The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!

Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale – Is It Overhyped?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale all the way over in Brooklyn. This was the first time that this sale has happened since 2016. Everybody is dying to know if the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale is worth the hype and we now have the insider scoop.

First off, the sale is held in Brooklyn so you’re gonna plan accordingly. While I was first expecting a mob scene, it was actually not that busy. They have designer clothing ranging from IRO to Stella McCartney and Prada plus everything in between. The merchandise is organized by size and type and the staff is very helpful. The pricing on most items is good, but then again a $2,000 dress for $450 is still expensive. Secondly, there are no shoes and accessories. Say what? Yes, let me repeat myself, there are no shoes and accessories at this sale. As well there are no dressing rooms so you have to try on your finds in plain sight.

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10. They have amazing high end designer merchandise, you just have to have the patience to dig through the racks. If you are hunting for a nice Paco Robanne dress or a Valentino matching set, you should look no further.

Montblanc Sample Sale – Are $1,000 Pens Worth It?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to stop by the Montblanc Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue. Known for its fountain ink pens and leather accessories, the Montblanc sale as well had a large variety of cuff links, watches and briefcases. Keep in mind that Montblanc is not cheap. The pricing at the Montblanc Sample Sale was extremely high, having briefcases around $450 and pens starting at $200.  

Overall we rated the Montblanc Sample Sale a 5/10. This was heavily based on the fact that the merchandise is still very expensive. As well as having limited variety in briefcases, belts and other leather goodies. Just remember that Fathers Day is around the corner and if your Dad loves Montblanc, you should stop by!

The John Varvatos Sample Sale has Great Pricing

By: Jacqueline Munro

The selection of merchandise at the John Varvatos sample sale is small but the discounts are big! Unless you can’t handle the heat, I think it might be a good sale to hit up; but be warned, it is blistering hot in the showroom.

At this sample sale, the selection is limited but still impressive. If you wear a size medium on top, you’ll hit the jackpot; there are lots of options here for you. But if you’re any other size you might strike out. At the sale, there are a lot of stylish jackets (in a variety of styles ranging from blazers to leather) and the graphic tees are really cool and soft (comfort is key). The sweaters look extremely comfy too; if you’re able to buy something knowing you can’t wear it for an entire season, I admire your strength. There is a decent selection of shoes but they only have sizes 10 or 11. If you’re in need of work shoes but you don’t like the typical designer styles you might be able to find something you like here. **Calling all stylish commuters:** there is also a wall of backpacks which are all 80% off! Most importantly though, all of the discounts here are steep, which we love to see! It’s not every day that you see good sample sale pricing!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7/10. I wish they had more merchandise and a wider variety of sizes, but the pricing is undeniably good. So if you have the time to check out this sale and you are in dire need of contemporary men’s clothing I’d say it is worth going to. But if you faint in there, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Good luck, shoppers!

The Rag and Bone Sample Sale is Questionable

By: Jacqueline Munro

After going to this Rag and Bone sample sale, I still can’t decide whether or not I think the discounts are good. But given that this sale is hosted by 260, I’m not surprised. Regardless of that though, I am satisfied by the large selection of merchandise that they have at the sale.

Firstly, I would like to emphasize how annoyed I was going into this sale. It was raining cats and dogs and there was a line of customers waiting to be admitted to the sale. But despite the torrential downpour, the 260 employees would not let anyone in one second before the posted opening time. They really don’t have any regard for their shoppers over there. When I finally got in after being completely soaked though, I was happy with the amount of merchandise they had

available. There was a really good selection of shoes, pants/jeans, and sweaters, but I was expecting there to be more leather jackets; there weren’t any classic styles, only leather bombers. There was one nice suede biker jacket, but that was it. They had sample jeans and shoes for 50 bucks, and they were actually really cute! Most of the womens sample shoes were a size 37, so if you have little feet, hurry over! They also had a ton of awesome hats for the winter and summer, as well as some cute bags. And another thing I noticed is that most of the products came in small sizes; I saw a lot of XS and XXS, but not a lot of M and L.

A lot of the stuff at this sale is selling for around 70% off retail, but not all of the products are discounted that well. Although the prices look really steep on the price list (which they kind of are) relative to the retail prices, they’re not that horrible. Knowing 260 they’ll slash their prices on the final days of the sale, so if you’re willing to wait it out, I’d say do it. Originally on Instagram I rated this sale an 8/10, but after reevaluating I’m giving it a 6/10, and I’m sure you can all tell why. Happy shopping!

The Maje Sample Sale is Underwhelming

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Maje sample sale is honestly disappointing. Unless you feel like waiting around to be shoved by rude people sitting through mediocre merchandise, I’d say skip this sale.

At this sample sale, the merchandise is subpar; I honestly feel kind of gypped. The 30-minute line led to high expectations, but they are completely unfulfilled. Aside from a few cute blouses, a nice pair of pumps, and one alluring leather jacket, there isn’t anything worth buying.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5 out of 10. I’ve seen much better discounts on more expensive merchandise at plenty of sales. It is unsettlingly crowded with rude people, and I cannot stress how underwhelming the selection of products really is. Don’t bother going to this 260 sample sale.
