Makeup Madness – Stilla X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Stila X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale located at 260 Fifth Avenue. We went an hour after they opened the doors to find a large selection of merchandise at decent pricing.

The Stila X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale had a short line outside but the second you walked in, you were consumed by madness. There were frenzies of people hoarding all different types of merchandise. The selection of makeup brushes and skin care offered both by Artis and Dr. Jart was great. While the selection of merchandise offered from Stila was all the ugly and outlandish colors that didn’t sell at Sephora this season. There were crazy resellers who were stocking products without even looking at them. Honestly the Stilla X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale felt like something out of a horror film.

Overall we rated the Stila X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale a 4 out of 10. The pricing on most of the merchandise was simply 50% and it seemed like the selection was just this seasons left overs. The line to pay wrapped around the entire venue.There were multiple people with, “I say no less than” six bags filled with all different types of products. You may want your beauty to be eternal but it is going to come at a price.

Wait, Don’t Run to the Manolo Blahnik Sale

Manolo Blahnik Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Who doesn’t love Manolos this time of year? The Manolo Blahnik sale has a significant amount of shoes discounted. However, prices are only 40% off at the moment. Our sources say Manolo Blahnik will be upping the discount to 60% off soon. We will keep you updated.

As mentioned before, the Manolo Blahnik sale has a great selection of shoes. Currently, there are still many sizes available. However, the longer you wait the less sizes they have. You have to pick your poison. Would you rather pay more and get the style you love, or pay less and have to choose from what’s left. Either way, you are getting a pretty good discount on shoes that normally begin at $500. The sale is held at their cozy retail store on the west side. The staff is very attentive and will help you find the perfect pair. Happy Shopping!

UPDATE 8/6/18
We are about a month into the extended Manolo sale. We are dissapointed to report only some shoes are marked down to 80%. Most shoes are now marked down 60%. Right now it’s mostly limited to summer shoes – sandals and open-toed heels. However there are sill a ton of sizes left! Updated pictures are included below.

“I’m Melting, I’m Meelltttiinnngg” (The Wicked Witch) – The Reformation Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

*read with British accent – makes more sense that way

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly coveted Reformation 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!

The Mara Hoffman Sample Sale did have a great selection of swimwear, including everything from floral bikinis to chic one pieces.There was a large selection of summer dresses, pants and rompers but had very limited sizing, only offering small and extra small options.

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.
