$30 and $50 Boots at the Ivy Kirzhner Sample Sale

We were so pleasantly surprised at the Ivy Kirzhner sample sale, where all shoes were $30 and all boots $50. This is a brand that sells them for oner $600 typically. At the last sample sale, shoes were still in the $200 range. Here’s what you need to know: all the $30 $50 items are samples, which means they are in size 7. If you are that size – say hello to paradise. If you are a different size, then they have regular collection items that are still over 80% off. All prices and photos below. The sale just started so you have plenty to check out.

The Cutest Cashmere Slippers at the Snowman Sample Sale

Snowman sample sale

Clothingline combined the Cashmere and Snowman sample sales into one and we checked them out on the first day! While items were still pricey – with cashmere sweaters between $60 and $90, the selection of sizes was quite broad (XS-L) and so was the variety. The Snowman coats were all 50% off retail prices, which left them in the $240-$260 range. We are crossing our fingers for markdowns as the sale progresses.
If you want to hit it up, you have till Thursday. Photos with prices below. Enjoy!

All Under $50 at the Karen Miller Sample Sale

The Karen Miller brand is having it’s second sample sale this year at Clothingline. While I’m not the biggest fan of the brand, I have to admit that prices are quite low. Everything except for the leather items is under $50. There are lots of options for larger sizes (6-12) in clothes and quite a few shoe options as well. The sample sale has clothes for women only – and includes dresses, jackets, tops, cardigans, skirts and pants. A lot of the merchandise is dirty or damaged, so make sure to double check the items before checking out. If you like the British brand, then you still have two days to shop at the sale.

ShopDrop Review

We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the Herve Leger sample sale for women at 260 has the most phenomenal items at crazy discounts. Many items are over 90% off. The bad news is that items are still quite pricey. So here is the rundown: most items are size small, but the selection of dresses is enormous. Embellished and non-embellished band-aid dresses, long and short, beautiful skirts, tops and jackets. No shoes, fragrances or handbags. Collections span current seasons to past. Every item is over $100 except for the bathing suits, which are an amazing $40 (down from $790!!!). The sale opens to the public today so make sure to snag some goodies while they last.

TRACY REESE sample sale review

Tracy Reese sample sale review

The Tracy Reese sample sale is hosted in the brand showroom in the fashion district. The highest priced items are $80, and they include the embellished coats. All dresses and rompers are $60, bottoms – $50 and tops $40. Most of the items are on the smaller side but there are a few sweaters that would fit larger sizes.

Here are some notes & photos from @GarmentDistrictDiva from the sale:

Beaded evening frocks for $60, are a steal.   As are $40 3D floral beaded tops.  Consider what you might need to layer under or over these pieces for winter soirees. There are a lot of vintage included $80 coats, so if you missed out on a previous season or are looking for a one of a kind look for the holiday season, this sale is your stop.  Also anticipate pieces that may not have made into the production and frocks for all seasons.

There are  some current pieces – spotted the pleated bell sleeve boxy blouse($288)  and the cascade pleat blouse ($248) selling for full retail at department stores.  They are only $40 at the sample sale, on-trend update.  Most garments were size 4, but some felt smaller, like a size 0 or 2.  Some of the tops run roomy. Try everything on.  Squirrel away some of the summer dresses for hot summer days or a resort vacay.

You may walk away with one special  spot-on piece perfect for a wedding  or an armload of dresses.  Be prepared for compliments.
If you still want to hit it up, you have till the end of the week. Photos below. Enjoy.

The Row Sample Sale Review

The Row is a ready-to-wear fashion line created by the Olsen twins. Their showroom, taking place at the Met Pavilion at 123 W 18th St on the fifth floor, features pieces that can retail for over $1,000.

There’s a huge variety of items to look at; between clothes, outerwear, and shoes, there’s something for every occasion. Sizes vary from 0 to 12 and XS to L, and prices range from $200 to $1,000 for more extravagant pieces. Shoes are in European sizes, so remember to check a conversion chart to find your size.

Some personal favorites of mine were their blazers, silk tops, and trousers. The showroom is enormous, so it’s hard to narrow it down; be sure to check it out for yourself!

This sale is credit card only, and bags are checked, so come prepared!

Etienne Aigner Sample Sale Review

Etienne Aigner Sample Sale NYC

Here is what you could find in the Etienne Aigner sample sale in  SoHo this week! We had our ShopDrop early access event last night and it was simply awesome!

Most items start at $250 at retail and go all the way up to $995! Sizes for clothes ranged from 0 to 14, a ton of overstock, beautiful wool-cashmere coats, blazers and sweaters. Handbags were from $15 to $120 and ranged in color, style and size. All shoes and boots were gorgeous but size 6. Everything is made in Italy and is absolutely beautiful. At the sale, the highest price items were $120 for exquisite leather bags. I personally bought my entire winter wardrobe, and if there is one sample sale you have to hit up this Summer, you bet it is Etienne Aigner. As always pics and prices below. You can still hit up the sale now.
