We love the Tesoro Collective sample sale. Created by mega-influencer, Lilliana Vazquez, the brand offers affordable, ridiculously stylish clothes, accessories and shoed. If you wanted to look like an influencer but didn’t know how, the Tesoro sample sale is for you.
This holiday pop-up is different from the regular sample sale. There is one sample rack, where you can find jumpers, rompers, tops and sweaters for $10-$40. Everything else is from the stock collection, but since the brand is so reasonably priced, you’ll still find a ton of options under $50 and everything is under $100. For amazing gifts and one-of-a-kind pieces, head over to the Tesoro collection sample sale.
Call us stupid, uneducated whatever – but we never heard of the Camilla brand until it was announced that the brand would have a sample sale. We checked out the site, the merchandise and prices and frankly, were not too impressed. The prices were still high. I mean, $220 for a short dress at a sample sale for a brand we never heard of? Come on! The prices at Carolina Herrera were better than that.
Additionally, the beginning of Fall is probably not the time we all want to be buying bathing suits. I am already scouting stores and the web for yummy sweaters and funky boots. So unless you’re an all-around swimmer with never-ending pockets, this one is a no-go.

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Eugenia Kim Sample Salein their own showroom! The room was filled with a variety of both summer and winter hats as well as a limited selection of shoes and bags.
The Eugenia Kim Sample Sale had whimsical summer hats that made us picture ourselves sitting on the French Riviera with a buttery croissant and cafe un latte, while the winter hats made us feel like we were wandering the snowy streets after completing some holiday shopping. I’m sure you have all seen the classic Eugenia Kim sun hat on bloggers and fashionistas across social media. This classic hat retails for $495 but today at the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale it is only $175!
We rated the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise is incredibly cute and chic for both winter and summer but still very expensive. There is a limited selection of shoes and bags, and the selection of hats is not big either. If you are traveling to a chic beach spot like Ibiza or planning on vacationing in Paris during the snowy Winter, we recommend you take a look!

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

Today we had the chance to check out the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale at ClothingLine located at 261 W 36 Street. The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale was interesting. There was very limited inventory from CP Company and a lot of eclectic merchandise from R13
The R13 and CP Company Sample Sale had limited variety and merchandise. The pieces from CP Company were extremely limited to one rack of sweaters and another of winter coats. The sweaters were high quality cashmere but still the prices were too high. R13 had a great deal for their jeans, you could buy three pairs for just $150! While these jeans usually retail for somewhere between 250 to 400 dollars.
Overall, we rated the R13 and CP Company Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise from R13 felt old and dirty. While there was extremely limited assortment of clothing from CP Company. The prices on everything, besides the jeans, from R13 were still high. The sizing options from both companies was limited to only smalls and extra smalls.

Lilla P and Leo Sage chose to host their sample sale independently, instead of partnering with Chelsea Market as they did in the past. The space they chose in the meatpacking was beautiful – albeit a bit of a challenge to get to. Any street in NY that doesn’t have a number could be in Timbaktoo for all we know.
For anyone who likes basic tees, ethical locally sourced fashion who is on a budget, this sample sale is a must. Everything at the sale from the sister brands is under $100, when the stuff retails for close to $300. Basic tees (100% cotton), linen dresses and cashmere sweaters – all serve as a solid base for an effortlessly chic wardrobe.
Details on the sale are below. Enjoy!
