We rated the J Brand Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise offered in nearly every size but the prices were still high. You can find J Brand jeans on sale at department stores for less than 70 dollars, so we recommend you wait until they markdown the prices.

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.

“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!

Minimalist Summer Chic – Eileen Fisher Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to checkout the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale in the East Village. There were two separate sections, one having regular merchandise offered at a sale price and the other was all sample clothing and accessories.

The Eileen Fisher sample sale offered a minimalistic assortment of merchandise. The racks were lined with limited color such as taupe, military green, and auburn as well as scales of black and white. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale offered extremely chic and simplistic clothing but had limited quantity.

We rated the Eileen Fisher Sample Sale a 6 out of 10. The clothing was minimalistic and chic but there was limited availability in all the samples, but they did have a separate rack of discounted item from their regular line.The staff was extremely nice and attentive to the customers. The merchandise was priced generally high for samples. The Eileen Fisher Sample Sale embodied minimalistic chic work clothing. If you are looking for a minimalistic base piece and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

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.

Shoe Box x 260 5th Ave Sample Sale

Cinderella for the day, Shoe Box Sample Sale, we’re looking for the perfect pair!

By: Nanda Rai

One of the most exciting sales yet! The Shoe Box has collaborated with 260 5th ave, the hub of all sample sales, tempting us to tower stack our closet shelves with even more shoes. As soon as you enter the sale, you’ll see, 1 pair for $80 and 2 pairs for $140. Any shoe, boot, sandal, flat, classic, sneaker, furry slipper, the list really goes on and yes they really mean any pair for this price! The workers are helpful and theres an area in the back to sit and try on, just be aware you’ll have to leave your belongings with security at the front entrance. The sale offers women sizes ranging from 5-11, keep in mind that not all of the sizes have the same options, however there were enough styles/trendy seasonal options to go around. *Oprah’s voice* “You get a pair! You get a pair!” The crowd goes wild*

I must mention SCHUTZ (average retail at $170 per pump) leading the sale and bringing the real heat to a summers end! As soon as I walked in, I routinely snap pictures of any shoe that catches my eye, and after I make another round looking for all my favorite designers. FYI, SCHUTZ had the largest selection available and shined in all the spotlight:
