The (Not So) Clever Alice Sale

By: Eve Orbach

When one of the first things you hear upon entering a sale is “the golden rule is to NOT trust the sizing”, you know you’re not off to a great start. The Clever Alice pop up features multiple brands such as Stellah, PORTO, Vivienne Hu, Inizio, Raw Earth Wild Sky, and more at discounts of up to 80%. Featured items include sweaters, skirts, tops, dresses, jackets, and bags. The prices really varied by item and brand, but as a whole I would say the deals were simply 😐. 

The sale is organized by brand and clothing item. Every piece is hung up neatly on hangers. The staff is super helpful to the point where I literally didn’t have to carry any item for more than .2 seconds, when it would then kindly be whisked away to the fitting room. The fitting room does not have a mirror inside, so every time I tried something on I had to go out and do a little fashion show in front of every person in the store. (There were definitely a few not too approving looks given to me by some of the other customers, lol. To each their own, guys!)

There honestly is nothing too notable about this one. If you’re in the area it may be worth popping by because they have some good pieces. Overall though the issues with the sizing were pretty frustrating and the deals were by and large underwhelming. Hopefully once the sample sale season kicks back up again there will be bigger and better ones to come!

Christian SiriaNO….No…Just No…..

One moment while I barf before I write this…. Christian Siriano we are NOT friends!!! Let’s start with RUDE staff, always a minus in my books. Also aluminum foil for dresses at prices I don’t ever want to see at a sample sale— I think not. Let’s have this conversation…. if you’re looking for evening you probably passed through this sale and may have scored something because some of us are lucky enough to find the unicorns in the bunch. For the most part the sale was a skip with disappointing prices, a hot mess, unorganized racks, rude staff… and all the way uptown. Meh. I vote Skip! 5 W 54th Street going on until Friday.

Jackets and Coats at the Michelle Waugh Sample Sale

michelle waugh sample sale

The Michelle Waugh sample sale was for people who value quality. There were 2 racks of clothes, a lot of the same style in multiple sizes. High quality cashmere and wool. Timeless, trendy and classy pieces. However, we would have loved to see more designs and steeper discounts but you don’t always get what you want in life.

The staff was really sweet and offered an additional 10% off to ShopDrop users. The prices were 50% off retail. Since the coats go for over $1K at retail, the sale would make sense for people who appreciate that brand and quality.

Opening Ceremony Sample Sale is Worth the Wait

Aside from the fact that you have to wait for an hour and a half to get into the Opening Ceremony sale and then another hour to check out, the sale is amazing and we gave it a 9 out of 10. There is plenty of merchandise: shoes, sneakers, boots, tops, outerwear, sweaters, dresses, skirts and pants. All items selling for 70% to 90% off. We found plenty of great deals for less than $100, and the styles and designs are cutting edge. The sale has plenty of sizes and options for both men and women.

The Good, Bad and Just Ugly – R13 and CP Company Sample Sale

R13 & CP Company sample sale

By: Ashley Randall 

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.
