The Schutz Sample Sale is the S*it

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Schutz sample sale is being hosted by Eclipse New York down in Chelsea. So although it was a hike for me to get there, I knew it was going to be well worth it. I love Eclipse because their sales are always super organized, and their staff members are the sweetest.

At this sale, there were tons of shoes… and I mean TONS. It was like a sea of white boxes over a horizon that was made up of tables of shoes. Most of the shoes were sandals (an even mix of flat and heels) and pumps, but there was also a nice selection of boots and booties, mules, and espadrilles. Prices ranged from $50-$135 which I felt was fair. The sample shoes were sizes 6.5 and were going for 50 bucks (I was really happy about that because that’s my size).

Overall I rated this sale a 9/10. There were tons of shoes ranging in sizes 5-11. They had styles and color combos to satisfy any woman’s shoe needs and everything was so well organized. This sale opens to the public tomorrow morning, October 2nd. So get ready to hit it up because you won’t want to miss it!

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?!

The sale is organized by different item types, there is everything from wired bras to rompers and in between. Also you can literally “taste the rainbow” since most of the merchandise comes in all the colors of the rainbow. Now let’s talk about the pricing because it is totally amazing.

Overall we rated the sale a 9 out of 10. These prices are just too good and everybody is always in need of some new undergarments. If you are a VIP, you are in luck because you can shop the sale early tomorrow AM!

Everything Is Under $20 – The Rachel Roy Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had a chance to stop by the Rachel Roy Sample Sale located in midtown. To say the least, the sale did not disappoint. Nearly every item is under $20 (you can skip your SweetGreen salad today).

The sample sale featured a huge variety of silk tops, midi dresses and slick pants. We were loving the selection of gorgeous chiffon dresses available in different prints like polka dot (pretty woman vibes) and stunning florals (florals for Fall, groundbreaking). While you might be thinking, I don’t need anything. There is a really great selection of merchandise. Let’s be real, if you aren’t broke from the Hermes Sample Sale then you should stop by (you need a dress to match those Hermes shoes, duh). While the sale is not very organized, so you really have to dig through the racks. There is a limited selection of bags, jewelry, bathing suits and shoes available for purchase.

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. This sale is truly a hidden gem, with everything under $20 it is totally worth it! We recommend you stop by!

I’d Recommend Skipping the Desigual Sample Sale

By: Jacqueline Munro

The pricing at the Desigual Sample Sale was fine (not good, not bad—fine) but the merchandise was terrible. The selection was plentiful with options for men, women, and children. But as far as aesthetics go, I was not too pleased.

There were lots of dresses and tops as well as a broad selection of colorful, embroidered jeans. But for the most part, those things weren’t worth purchasing due to their tacky patterns and embellishments. The only decent pieces at the sale were the jackets. There were some really cute denim options as well as some other more eccentric kinds. There were also a few cute purses for a decent price. For all the party girls out there, this could be an opportunity to replace your “going out bag” if you like colors and patterns. For the girls who wear all black all of the time—nothing for you. Overall I rated this sale a  6/10, I really did not enjoy it. Hopefully we’ll see some better merchandise and lower prices next time this sale comes into town.

Don’t Get Your Knickers in a Twist – The Bottega Veneta Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a chance to preview the Bottega Veneta Sample Sale. Similar to last years sale, there were tons of knot bags, leather accessories, and clothes to chose from,

The Bottega Veneta Sample obviously had stellar pricing, runway dresses for $200 (deep breaths) and shoes ranging from $100 – $150 (take a sip of water/wine). While the pricing is clearly amazing, the merchandise was disappointing. A ton of the separates and jackets were spotted at the Summer 2018 sale. While you shouldn’t worry, there are tons of leather goodies available for purchase at + 80% off retail price. What about the knot clutch? (because we know everybody is gonna ask). There is a decent selection of the knot clutches available.  They ranged in price from $250 (mostly satin) to $750 (special collection/exotics). Accessories like belts, scarves, jewelry and sunglasses ranged from $50 to $200 dollars.

Overall we rated the sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we really had our hopes us for this sale, we left empty handed. The duplicate pieces from 2018 really didn’t sit well with us but the pricing was just too good. If you love the brand, we recommend you stop by. Beware there will be big lines throughout tomorrow and the next day, and phones are strictly not allowed.

Cancel Your Plans – The Sergio Rossi Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we got a preview of the Sergio Rossi Sample Sale located in their showroom. Whatever you are doing tomorrow, you need to change your plans. This sale is insane

To start off, the showroom is organized by size then further by style so it is super easy to shop. Let’s talk about the pricing (more like scream and dance around). It is seriously great. Starting at $99 (can you eat Sergio Rossi’s for dinner?) and ranging up to $299. These are great prices for shoes that usually retail from $995 to $1,295. There is a great selection of pumps, sandals, wedges, sneakers and booties! There is everything you can imagine, from glittery high heeled sandals (wedding SZN) to lace up boots (Winter is coming). Don’t worry! There is a decent selection of shoes available in every size. The notable mermaid style pumps are available (we are looking at you people who have weddings coming up).

Overall we gave this sale a 9.5 out of 10 (yes, you are reading this correctly). The Sergio Rossi Sample Sale was such a pleasure to shop, the staff was super helpful and there is an amazing selection of shoes available for cheap.

What To Expect From the Hermes Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Calling all the fashionistas in the New York Tri-State Area! If you haven’t heard, Hermes will be hosting a Sample Sale in two weeks! So you better start saving now or apologizing to your significant other regarding your next credit card bill.

We gathered past intel from some amazing sale ladies to give you a picture of what to expect at the sale. Last Fall, Hermes hosted a Sample Sale at the Americana in Long Island. One of our team members attended the sale and said Hermes began giving out tickets at midnight. Apparently the early bird gets Hermes Twill Scarves and Oran Sandals (I mean you can sleep when you’re dead – at least you will be wearing Hermes).

Past Hermes Sales have had shoes, including the coveted Oran and Thalassa Sandals. While we heard from HolyinMundane that there will be Ready to Wear, but there will be no enamel bracelets or silk scarves (we are literally praying to the sales gods that this isn’t true). Also, the sale does not usually feature bags and home. The question everybody is pondering, what are the discounts like? Generally in the past, shoes and accessories were 50% off and other items ranged from 50% to 70%. Another thing about the Hermes Sale, you do not receive the highly notable orange box. Rather, the merchandise is given to you in plastic/clear bags.

What we remembered most, was the strict no photo policy. At the entrance to the sale, the clerks taped your phone. If you lifted as much as the edge of the tape, there was void printed all over it and security swiftly escorted you out of the sale.

No one timed you, which was great while you were shopping, but sucked while you waited in line. They restocked the merchandise every day.

Will you be attending the sale? If so, then stop by and come say hi to us! ShopDrop will be providing coverage on the Hermes Sample Sale so make sure you check Instagram to get live updates!
