“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!

We rated the Karen Millen Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise in variety of colors but it was mostly formal workwear and evening. The prices were really good on the dresses, pants and tops but more expensive on outerwear and blazers. The shoes were definitely the best deal they offered, buying 1 pair for 30$ and 2 pairs for 50$! If you are in need for something bright in fun, we recommend you take a look!

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.

Stripes and Gingham Galore – The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale

By Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the combined Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale downtown at 151 Wooster Street. Dreamy and colorful patterned apparel lined all the racks, a majority of which were dresses, skirts and tops.

The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale felt as if you were transported from the rainy streets of New York to a bright and sunny day at the beach. The sale offered a lot of chic striped and gingham patterned merchandise. Caroline Constas offered both clothing from her collection as well as a section full of samples. The Caroline Constas samples were more limited and cheaper than the normal collection. Lemlem had a large collection of both maxi dresses, rompers and beach accessories but a limited selection of shoes.

We rated the Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. The clothing was incredibly cute and chic but offered limited variation, especially Lemlem who seemed to only have striped merchandise. The apparel offered by both Caroline Constas and Lemlem felt as if it were designed solely for the summer months. The merchandise was still priced quite high and there was an extremely long line for both the fitting room and register. Yet all the  merchandise made us feel as if we were relaxing in the Hamptons with a glass of rosé in hand. If you are in need of chic summer clothing and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!
