Winter is Coming at the Michelle Waugh Sample Sale

Michelle Waugh sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Even though it is currently over 85º in New York City, fall and winter are just around the corner. To help us all prepare, we stopped by the Michelle Waugh sample sale. The sale was held at their NYC showroom and featured a rack of discounted coats and blazers. Their pieces are all 100% cashmere and would be perfect for when the temperature finally drops. The staff was extremely helpful and discussed some of the pieces and explained their features.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10 because while the selection of coats and outerwear was beautiful, there was something to be desired price wise. The least expensive piece that I could find was a $330 coat, which is a steep price for a cashmere coat that can’t be worn in sleet or snow.

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review Solid & Striped

Summer Forever at the Solid & Striped Sample Sale

Solid & Striped sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

The quantity and variety of styles at the Solid and Striped sample sale made us wish summer would never end. Held in the NYC HQ on 20th between 10th and 11th (it was a trek), the sale featured both men’s and women’s apparel and swimwear. Compared to their usual selling price, the merchandise at the sample sale was a bargain! A one-piece that was selling for $158 online was $48 at the sale. The swimwear was all very current and would be perfect for that labor day trip to the Hamptons. From bright neons and girly gingham to more muted navies, the bathing suit styles could match any palette.

The one drawback was the sizing. While the sample sale did have sizes from XS-L, even the most generous large was teeny. For those who aren’t a size 0 (myself included), it may be difficult to find the best fitting styles at the sale. Due to the beautiful and stylish pieces and their prices, we rated the Solid and Striped sample sale a 6 out of 10. If you’re still feeling summer and are planning on attending this sale, make sure to RSVP by emailing rsvp@solidandstriped.com

Backpack Bonanza at the Herschel sample sale

Herschel brand sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

As a loyal fan of the Herschel brand, I was over the moon ecstatic to be able to cover the Herschel sample sale 2018! The sample sale was run by 260 sample sales in Soho. After watching the 260 Instagram story, I was expecting the line to be around the block and would take almost an hour to get in. Thankfully that wasn’t the case and I only needed to wait around 5 minutes. The Herschel sale had raincoats, fleeces, luggage, wallets, hats, fanny packs, Ipad cases, and of course, their signature backpacks. As someone who has had the same Herschel backpack for the past 6 years without any signs of wear or tear, I was excited to see the options. There were about five different styles for the larger size backpacks, with an emphasis on darker colors. The sale had many different sizes of backpacks, but they were all grouped together and it was hard to differentiate between sizes. What was surprising was the pricing of the backpacks. The larger backpacks cost the same as the mini-backpacks, which made the mini bags not worth the $34.99.

We rated the Herschel sample sale a 7 out of 10 because of the well-stocked inventory. Let us know what you thought about the sale in the comments below!

One of a Kind Pieces at the JSong Vintage Archive sale

JSong Vintage Archive sale

By Melanie Capruso

The JSong Vintage Archive sample sale featured a mixture of ready-to-wear and one-of-a-kind pieces. The sample sale was housed in their NYC HQ in the middle of the garment district. The inventory was arranged on racks by price, which made it easy shop. The detailing on the clothes were spectacular and not like anything else I’ve seen sold in other stores. The pieces were made with a fabulous attention to detail! As the majority of the pieces were samples, the sizes were smaller and there were only one or two pieces by style. What really made the JSong Vintage Archive sale stand out was the attentive staff. From the minute I walked in they were ready to help me with anything I needed!

We gave the JSong Vintage Archive sale a 6 out of 10 due to beautiful inventory and the incredible staff. Make sure to check out this sale before it ends!

Back to School Fashions with Petit Bateau

Petit Bateau sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

The Petit Bateau sample sale is coming at the perfect time to stop the end-of-summer blues, and get us excited for fall! Petit Bateau is a high quality French clothing brand for children. They’re known for their colorful and cozy clothing that both parents and kids adore. Their sale features both late summer and fall pieces for children from infants to 12 years old. The selection is incredible with everything from lightweights tees to chunky knits.

The only disappointment was the price. Petit Bateau is an expensive brand retailing for $70-$150, which is a steep price for clothes children will out grow. The Petit Bateau sample sale offers around 50%-60% off per item. BUT, we were told the prices will drop and the sale will b extended into next week.

Edun Sample Sale Prices Have Me Loving Life

Edun Sample Sale Review

I walked into the Edun sample sale exactly twenty minutes after opening time and it was a zoo.  Ladies had tons of clothing piled in their arms.  Bags were basically flying off the table.  I was so mad at myself for having shown up twenty minutes late to this sample sale.  So, naturally I dove in and started to go through all the goodies.  I mean this sale was AH-mazing!  The prices were the best I have ever seen at the EDUN sample sale, $30 down from $690!!!!  The merchandise was beautiful and there was so much to choose from, the sizing was more limited, ranging from size 0 to size 6.  So if you are a size 8 or higher there were accessories and shoes worth checking out!
