The Y-3 Sample Sale was Utterly Disappointing

By: Jacqueline Munro

Let me start by saying that if you go to the Y-3 sample sale and there is a line, you’re a fool if you wait on it. I’m so angry that I wasted my time standing in the blazing heat just so I could walk into the sale and walk out five minutes later. When you get inside it is going to seem like there might be a good selection of merchandise. This illusion is created by the fact that the entire floor is lined with tables of shoes. But don’t get your hopes up– quantity does NOT mean quality. The prices aren’t good either! The Y-3 high tops are $93, and the low tops are $73 which, if you ask me, is a rip off for old, outdated styles. But hey, at least for guys there are a LOT of crappy options.

For women, there are hardly any shoes, and it’s not like the apparel section is making up for that loss. There are about five styles of athletic shorts and tops, and maybe two different kinds of jackets. I wish I had more to write for you girls but there is literally nothing else to say.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 4/10, which is generous. The only reason I’m giving it above a 0 is that I went on the second day. I can only pray that what I saw was a result of greedy buyers purchasing all of the good merchandise on the first day. Do not go to this sale, shoppers. Avoid it at all costs!

The Ba&sh Sample Sale Left me with Mixed Emotions

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Ba&sh sample sale was unbelievably hectic, which is no surprise given that it is taking place at 260 sample sale. I’m honestly having a hard time deciding whether or not I loved this sale, here’s why:

For starters, did I mention that I hate 260? For one of their first sample sales I was hoping that  Ba&sh would choose a KILLER host like, I don’t know, us maybe?  But seriously, we all know that 260 prices suck which is such a drag because they had amazing merchandise at this sale. There were so many cute dresses, sweaters, coats, and skirts. The skirts and dresses varied in length and style, and the outerwear ranged from shearling to denim. There were also some super stylish wide leg corduroys, but they were literally designed for women with legs like flag poles. Aside from the clothing there was a small selection of shoes and an even smaller selection of accessories.

So how am I supposed to determine whether or not I loved this sale? I shouldn’t be okay with settling for mediocre prices just because the merchandise rocks. But hey, I guess that’s the name of the 260 game. I decided to give this sale a 7/10 because I did walk away with some great (pricey) finds. But if you’re hoping to walk away feeling victorious I’d get over there quickly because the first day was PACKED! Good luck shoppers. Stay safe out there it’s a vicious crowd.

Another Great Joie, Equipment, and Current Elliott Sale at 260

By: Jacqueline Munro

Although I hate to praise 260, it’s impossible not to after their second great multi-brand sale this season. I went to their Joie, Equipment, and Current Elliott sale back in May and I was totally blown away. The prices were amazing and there was a ton of cute merchandise which is completely off-brand for 260. Although there were some repeat styles this time around, they did have a lot of new merchandise and the prices remained impressive.

The Joie inventory was defintiely the most stocked at this sample sale. There were tons of tops, jackets, dresses, pants, shoes, and even accessories. The Current Elliott section offered lots of cute, comfy sweatshirts as well as t-shirts, and a minimal selection of stylish jeans. Sadly there wasn’t as much Equipment this time, but they still had plenty of stunning classic blouses for $60 **cue tears of joy**. This is a great sample sale to go to if you want to start prepping your wardrobe for the fall. Overall I rated this sale a 7/10. Unfortunately because the sale is taking place at 260 that inevitably means rude staff members and aggressive crouds which make it a miserable environment to shop in. But other than that, I cannot complain. Definitely hit up this sale, it has become one of my favorites!

The Gant Sample Sale is Classic 260 – BAD

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Gant sample sale is currently going on at 260’s main location, which is quite a drag. I’m sick of dealing with the consistently rude staff and outrgeous prices. Despite the decent merchandise, the discounts sucked. I do not recommend going to this sale unless you’re in dire need of some Gant (which I doubt you are).

At this sale there are a lot more options for men than women. For men there is a huge offering of suits, outerwear, shirts, pants, and shoes. For women there are a some stylish blazers, a few pairs of funky pants, a couple of pairs of trendy shorts, and a minimal amount of shoes. There were some unisex accessories including sunglasses and scarves, but nothing that blew me away. The most shocking thing I saw at the sale was a Harry’s shave kit.

Overall I rated this sale a 5/10. While the selection of clothing that they had was alright, I cannot stress how lousy the prices were. I mean t-shirts were $30… Not today Satan!!!!

The Pricing at the Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale is Amazing

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Roberto Cavalli sample sale is being hosted by the third party retailer Luxe Market in SoHo this week. If you haven’t gone yet, you’re missing out. Almost everything at the sale is 90% off, but the selection is somewhat limited, so you better get over there ASAP!

At this sample sale they have gowns, short dresses, embellished jeans, leather vests and jackets, and beautiful tops. Most of the pieces are classic Cavalli. Funky patterns, bright colors, and unique designs. Although the selection is small each item comes in various sizes and they will be restocking daily. The showroom is very well organized and the staff members are dedicated to making your shopping experience superb. Overall I rated this sale an 8.5/10. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with Luxe Market.

Bras, Undies and PJs Oh My! – The Cosabella Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a preview of the Cosabella Sample Sale which opens tomorrow and early for our VIP customers. The sale features a huge selection of lingerie and sleepwear (you still want to look chic in your sleep). 

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. Even better if you find an item with a red tag, it is an additional 50% off the sample sale price (yes – you read that right, an additional 50% off). There is also a decent size range available! 

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!

The Dolce and Gabbana Sample Sale is Amazeballs

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Dolce and Gabbana sample sale is currently being hosted by the third party retailer Luxe Market in the heart of Soho. We got a sneak peek of the sale at our VIP hours this morning, and we were NOT disappointed. If you (foolishly) didn’t buy a VIP pass you might have missed out on some of the best pieces given that there is a small selection, but don’t fret, the sale is continuing through tomorrow night.

At this D&G sample sale, the ready to wear items range from 50%-85% off and the retail prices are listed on the tags so you’re able to see what kind of deals you’re getting. As far as merchandise goes there are several stunning jackets, blouses, bottoms, and a couple of gorgeous dresses. There was also a decent offering of accessories including handbags, backpacks, wallets, and scarves, but the shoe selection is nearly nonexistent. There was only one pair of D&G sneakers, and they were far too eccentric for my wardrobe. Guys don’t worry, you’re included in this sale too. There are lots of cool tops and outerwear options for you as well, but most of the styles have old western designs on them.

Overall I rated this sale an 8/10. Despite the fact that the quantity of the merchandise was somewhat limited, the pieces they did have were awesome. Furthermore, the pricing was good, it was well organized, and the staff members were beyond kind. Happy shopping, friends!

The Illesteva Sample Sale will have you Looking like a Celeb in no time

The Illesteva sample sale was held in its showroom downtown in the Canal area. The largest room had 4 tables lined with sunglasses 🕶; designs included the those worn by Gigi Hadid, Kourtney K, Meghan Markle and other celebrities. While the selection was extensive, the prices weren’t nearly as impressive. They ranged from $50 to $180 but the average sunglasses costed $100-$120. I mean, that’s not even 50% off for a lot of the styles. 

There was a separate room with handbags ($175), ski goggles, optic glasses and men’s sunglasses. The staff members wanted us to know that the merchandise would be restocked throughout the sale – so there you go, we’ve passed the information on. To be completely honest, we’ve scored Illesteva sunglasses for the same prices in discount stores, so we can’t give the sample sale more than a 6/10.

The Rebecca Taylor Sample Sale is Already Wiped Out

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Rebecca Taylor sample sale was a hot mess, but I was happy with the merchandise and price points. The staff told me that a large crowd came through this morning, which contributed to the disaster of the showroom.

Although the prices increased from the last Rebecca Taylor sale, I still thought they were decent. The discounts ranged from 50% – 80% off which is more than I can say for many of the sales I go to. As far as merchandise goes, there were tons of bottoms and shoes but the tops and dresses were not as plentiful. Most of the shoes were Loeffler Randall which was a pleasant surprise, and they were fifty bucks! I was not as pleased with the employees running this sale as I was with the pricing. There were plenty of staff members in the showroom but they were not helpful and they severely lacked  organizational skills.

Overall I gave this sale a 7/10. I found a bunch of cute stuff that I wouldn’t have gone broke buying, and that made me really happy. But don’t expect to be able to find anything easily, you’re gonna have to do some digging. Good luck, shoppers!

The Gottex Studio Sample Sale Sadly Has No Bathing Suits

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Gottex Studio Sample Sale is taking place on West 39th in a very tiny showroom. If you were hoping to purchase a cheap suit for the last month of summer, you’re not going to be able to; this sale is strictly stocked with their activewear line, X By Gottex.

The price points at this sale are uh-may-zing… Nothing costs more than $20 and the leggings are $15! The only thing that could make it better would be if they gave you everything for free! They had leggings, biker shorts, tees, tanks, sports bras, and joggers ranging in size from XS to XL. Although there isn’t a huge selection everything is cleanly separated by size, and the staff members would be more than willing to help you find something. Overall I rated this sale a 7/10. Although I was slightly disappointed that they didn’t have any swimwear, I couldn’t help but drop my jaw at the discounts. All of the products were really high quality as far as workout clothes go, and everything was very cheap. Definitely hit up this sale  if you’re nothing like me and actually work out! Or if you are like me and wear workout clothes just cause you’re too lazy to put on anything else.
