Dennis Basso-so Deals

This Dennis Basso sale features women’s winter wear at marked down prices. Discounts vary item by item. There are furs, evening gowns, dresses, scarves, hats, and more. 

Let me start off by saying that the merchandise is beyond amazing. The furs are so stunning and came in a wide variety of colors and styles. The gowns are luxe and equally gorgeous. The sizes of the gowns ranged from sizes 0–14! This sale was definitely a hard one to review because while I was there, it took every ounce of willpower I have to not to take everything home.

Furs and evening gowns are usually investment pieces, so high prices are to be expected. However, there are DEFINITELY better deals to be found. 

The space is huge and well organized, so shout out to Soiffer Haskin for such consistent performances. Besides having to give proof of ID at the entrance (extreme, much?) this sale was a breeze. The staff was sweet and helpful. Clothing is separated by item type and size.

If you’re a big fan of the brand and willing to splurge, this might be the sale for you. All sales are final. I give this sale a 3/10 because I was disappointed by the high high prices.

Going (sun)ham for the Sunham Sale

By: Eve Orbach

Home goods brand Sunham’s sale is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for items to add extra sparkle to your home✨ Brands such as Vera Bradley, Ted Baker, Lacoste, and more are being featured. Prices range from $4–$40, so you are definitely bound to find some great deals. Most of the items fall under $20! Pillowcases, comforters, shams, blankets, pillows, robes, towels and more are featured. 

The best deals of the sale include throw blankets for $15, bath robes for $18, and large decorative throw pillows for $6. 

The one downside to the sale was that it is pretty disorganized and honestly kind of overwhelming to navigate. The sale kind of resembles a (slightly) less extreme version of what people’s homes in “Hoarders” look like. 

There’s a sweet staff, tons of merchandise, and killer deals (seriously, you might get killed by the mess). I give this sale a 7/10

What: Sunham sale.                                                                                                                                                               Where: 308 Fifth Avenue, 3rd Floor, Manhattan.                                                                                                            When: January 20–24, 2020

The Rubin Singer Sale is Amazing!

By: Eve Orbach

The Rubin Singer sale has drop-dead gorgeous clothing at drop-dead prices! With discounts of up to 90% off original prices, it made me want to sing(er) at the top of my lungs! Prices are slashed, and then slashed some more! Included in the sale are many straight from the runway pieces. The brand as a whole is amazing—Rubin Singer himself used to design for Oscar de la Renta, so trust me when I say that Singer’s track record is quite impressive. 

The highlight are definitely the gowns (which really made me realize how lacking my life is in gown-wearing opportunities). There are also tops, skirts, leather items, pants, and jackets. The items being sold are very unique and have lots of beautiful detail. Styles range from minimalist chic to statement pieces. No matter what your style is, there is definitely something for you here. No joke — today there was both a mother finding a dress for her son’s wedding as well as someone looking for a “casual woodland goddess” vibe. 

All items are hung up neatly on hangers and divided by item type. There is a ton of stock, but act fast! The sooner you get here the sooner you can get your hands on the beautiful pieces. 

All sales are final. Crash and credit card are accepted.

The Anthom Sale was Plain 👎

Anthom is offering discounts of up to 80%, but unless if overpriced and underwhelming sales are your thing—skip this one. While the discounts originally seemed promising, a lot of the items are well over $150+. There are, however, a few good deals. This sale features clothes from Anthom, along with other brands that include dim sum, Yune Ho, and H of S. 

All types of women’s clothing is being sold, along with accessories such as headbands, jewelry, and shoes. Everything is displayed neatly on hangers and separated by brand. The space is very minimalist chic and everyone working the sale is helpful. 

The sizing definitely stays on the smaller size. Some of the items aren’t even sized at all (um, what?). 

Ladies, please spare yourself the trip to this one. High priced items + bad sizing= one bad sale. I give this a 3/10 for the exactly 3 items I found reasonably priced.

Notte a lot at Otte

By: Eve Orbach

In the wise words of our follower @actuallychic “Don’t go it’s awful. Expensive and almost no inventory. Lame attempt at getting customers in the store to sell their regular priced items.” Stock at the Otte sample sale includes pieces from brands such as Acne Studios, R13, Golden Goose, Aviator Nation, Mother, and more. Discounts ranged from 60% to 85%. There are also LOTS of non-sale items, which is why I am totally buying @actuallychic’s killer conspiracy theory.

There are tops, dresses, winter coats, shoes, denim, perfumes, jewelry, and more. Clothing is neatly organized by item type. The sizing definitely stayed on the smaller side, and I literally got there the minute the sale opened. (Eek.) The space is cheery and cute and definitely my favorite part of the whole shabang. 

The prices are WAY too high for Otte to call this a sample sale. Most of the items are well over the $200 range, and are either too expensive or just plain farty. 

For the love of all things that are good in this world, spare yourself. This sale is a massive waste of time. Cash, credit cards and Apple Pay accepted. All sales are final. I give this one a 2/10.

YAY For YIGAL AZROUEL

According to Wikipedia (yes folks— we are THAT studious) “The Yigal Azrouel woman is effortlessly cool and confident…Yigal prides himself in the craftsmanship; he finely sources original fabrics, furs, and embellishments from all over the world to create the finest products for his customers.” At discounts of up to 90% off on gorgeous pieces! (including ones from the runway!) this sale is not one to miss. There are stunning feminine dresses, edgy leather jackets, and everything in between. Also included is a strong accessories section featuring many styles of belts, shoes, scarves, and bags.

The gowns are definitely the highlight of the sale; the patterns and designs are so intricate. Other highlights are their beautifully made winter coats and stylish heels.

There is a great range of sizes in all categories so extra points for that! Most sample sales are very lacking in this category, so hats off to the good people at Yigal Azrouel.

All items are hung up neatly on hangers and divided by attire and item type (standard, leather, runway, etc.) The staff was very helpful and helped some of my fellow shoppers find some real hidden gems.

Cash and credit card accepted. All sales are final.

What: Yigal Azrouel Sale.                                                                                                                                         When: January 13-16, 2020.                                                                                                                                       Where: 500 7th Avenue, 9th Floor (at the wework 37th entrance).

Wilt and Acrobat: small selection but great finds

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Wilt and Acrobat sample sale was in a very small space, and there were only 3-4 racks total. One rack had a few cashmere sweaters, another had dresses and pants, and another had some shirts and coats. The majority of the items were low in stock – there were mostly one of each piece. Everything was very organized, and it was very easy to find whatever you are looking for. This sale was very hit or miss: it is possible one can find a few great items, but also possible to find simply nothing (due to the low quantity of items.)

Merchandise/ pricing: Each piece was individually marked. The cashmere sweaters were all $40, blouses around $60, dresses around $200, coats around $300, pants around $40, and shorts around $30. The prices were very good, due to the clothing’s amazing quality. There was mostly one of each item, which made it rather hard to shop. There were also no accessories, and no shoes. This sale was very small and everything was low in stock.

What: Wilt and Acrobat Sample Sale

When: Wed. Jan 8th- Fri, Jan 10th, 2020

Where: 27 East 37th, ground floor, Manhattan, NY

Rate: 8/10 Great finds, amazing prices, sweet staff.

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.

Shop Til’ You Drop at The 375 Sale

TIS’ the season for luxury for less… I got myself to the LES to scout out what the fuss was at the 375 showroom sale… if your budget is high enough it’s definitely something to write home about. Moncler at 30% off. Dior at 35% off. Off white, Moose Knuckles and Louboutin all at a discounted price. Well ladies and gents here’s what’s I think: A) I need a sugar daddy. B) if you’re looking for those brands this was definitely the place to be! I haven’t seen Louboutin this cheap since the dinosaurs. It’s definitely a great gift spot for a loved one—but must be a true love to get yourself to 36 Ludlow Street. Sale will be going on until Tuesday.

Great Pieces at the Teri Jon Sale

Ladies and well ladies … here we are… the Teri Jon sample sale scores again. The brand is well known for their cocktail and evening wear. Amongst many naked women and traumatized teenagers whose moms dragged them to find dresses for family events; We made our way through to find some golden pieces. There was one room of samples prices starting at $50 and another room of stock going up to $250. Lots of sizes to choose from and sweet staff attempting to make some sort of sense of the chaos. If you’re in the neighborhood it is definitely worth a skim. Ask people what they got before you buy it though because I’m pretty sure we saw the whole word at this sale….. and their mothers… and what would be worse than matching your friends mother? Yikes.
This sale scores an 8/10 on the ShopDrop scoreboard for being stocked, staffed, fairly priced and having many different styles for different types of people. The sale will be going on Sunday 9:30-5 and Monday 9:30-4:45 at 241 west 37th Street 2nd Fl. Credit cards only.
