The Nancy Gonzalez Sample Sale has Stunning Merchandise

By: Jacqueline Munro

The handbags at the Nancy Gonzalez sample sale are outrageously beautiful, but also outrageously priced. Given that the bags are all made of 100% genuine crocodile, I understand why they are so expensive, but the price tags still hurt my heart a little bit.

At this sample sale, the bags range from 55% to 70% off, which is good. But considering the fact that it is a sample sale, I was hoping for even higher discounts. Maybe I’m being greedy, but a $4,000 bag for 60% off is still way too expensive for me. Overall though, the merchandise is absolutely stunning… literally drool-worthy. There are bags of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and for every occasion, you could imagine. Lots of the styles are amazing for summer, so if you’re looking for a cute (but pricey) bag to carry once the warm weather holds, this is the place to be! They also had adorable shoes including sandals, mules, and pumps, all for good prices! If I had a fat wallet, I would have left with everything.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7 out of 10. If the prices weren’t so high I would definitely bump it up to an 8 or 9, but I’m not willing to spend so much money at a sample sale. If you’re willing to pay though, and you’re looking for a fancy new bag, definitely head over to this Nancy Gonzalez sample sale.

The Maje Sample Sale is Underwhelming

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Maje sample sale is honestly disappointing. Unless you feel like waiting around to be shoved by rude people sitting through mediocre merchandise, I’d say skip this sale.

At this sample sale, the merchandise is subpar; I honestly feel kind of gypped. The 30-minute line led to high expectations, but they are completely unfulfilled. Aside from a few cute blouses, a nice pair of pumps, and one alluring leather jacket, there isn’t anything worth buying.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5 out of 10. I’ve seen much better discounts on more expensive merchandise at plenty of sales. It is unsettlingly crowded with rude people, and I cannot stress how underwhelming the selection of products really is. Don’t bother going to this 260 sample sale.

Billionaire Boys Club Sample Sale is Loaded with Cool Streetwear

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Billionaire Boys Club sample sale is perfect for street-wearers looking to stock up on some trendy merchandise. The cleanly styled showroom and music playing throughout fit the brand’s vibe and enhanced the already awesome shopping experience.

At this sample sale there were hoodies for $50, crewnecks for $40, t-shirts for $20 and hats for $15. Additionally, they had lightweight outerwear for $50 and non lightweight outerwear for $90. They had nice variety of Yeezy ready to wear items as well as their signature vintage hard denim which retails for over $500. But at this sale the denim is going for $40!  All of the products were displayed on racks but fully stocked in cardboard boxes; this was really helpful and made the digging process a lot easier. All of the merchandise came in a wide variety of sizes and was in great condition. And girls, don’t be too upset about the exclusively male clothing; the t-shirts and sweatshirts come small enough to fit tiny girls too!

Overall, I’m giving this sale a 8/10. Yes the merchandise was plentiful, high quality, and well priced, but what really sealed the deal was the staff. I have never encountered nicer sample sale employees! They were all extremely helpful, patient, and enthusiastic; it made my shopping experience 10x better! I would definitely recommend going to this sale if you like the brand or are in need of some new streetwear. Thanks Billionaire Boys Club for making me feel welcome!

The Oscar de la Renta sample sale came to us this week at 260’s SoHo location. In terms of merchandise, it did not disappoint. The sale was a perfect shopping opportunity to stock up on work outfits, casual outfits, black tie, furs, shoes, and even something for the kiddies. And, calling all brides, you can score your very own Oscar de la Renta wedding gown for the big day.

We rated the Oscar de la Renta sample sale a 6 out of 10. While merchandise was on point, the prices were not. Now, we know Oscar de la Renta has a high price point, but damn, can they budge just a little?! Anyway, there were a ton of samples and regular stock. The sample sale consisted of mostly smaller sizes, so it was a bit limiting for the general public. Lastly, let’s talk about shoes.  Most of them were samples and were wrecked! What did these models do? Complete a triathlon in them?! I mean some shoes were straight up foot disease waiting to happen, and they had the nerve to charge $89 for all shoes! If you have a black tie event coming up head over to the Oscar de la Renta sample sale. You can snag a beautiful gown that will make you stand out at your next event. Happy shopping!

P.S. At check out mention that you found out about the sale through Shopdrop App. Help us get our name out there! xoxo!

Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale Finally with Amazing Prices

roberto cavalli sample sale

This was the third Roberto Cavalli sample sale hosted by clothingline in the past 1.5 years. Finally, this time we cannot complain about pricing – it was so much better. As far as the merchandise goes. A lot of the merchandise is the same as in the previous sample sales and is pretty old. If you do have the time to dig through the merchandise, there definitely are some gems to be found!

Some gowns were selling for $299! The outerwear was also priced at $299! There were tons of bottoms: skirts, pants and denim. For those reading this far, here’s the secret – there was an entire Tom Ford rack (!!)) selling for 85% off retail. Don’t worry, you’ll still have to shell out an arm and a leg, since the retail prices average out at $10,000 per item. The sample sale had merchandise for both women and men. Of the Cavalli sales so far, this is definitely the best one.

Paul Andrew Sample Sale: Broken Hearts if You’re Not a 37

Paul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The Paul Andrew Sample sale is a match made heaven if you wear a size 37 in shoes. Compared to the other sizes *cough* 38 *cough,* 37 had an entire section devoted to the size. There really wasn’t much of a difference from the last sale. Men felt a bit disappointed with this sale. There were quite a few in line to be the first to grab a pair of Paul Andrew shoes. However, last sale had a better selection.

We rated the Paul Andrew sample sale a 6 out of 10. We would have totally given them a 9 out of 10 easily if they would just add more sizes. This is Paul Andrew’s MO to only have 37s because they put out true samples and very, very little overstock. Some shoes in other sizes were used and in crappy conditions. Those would cost you $50. If you are a size 37 stop by the Paul Andrew and stock up on stilettos for your hot V-day plans. Happy shopping!

We Can Keep a Secret if You Can: The Opening Ceremony Sample Sale

Opening Ceremony Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Opening Ceremony is having a “secret” sale, which is basically a sample sale. Why is it such a big secret? Well, for starters everything was under $100. That is amazing for a very popular street fashion brand. Accessories started at $15 and coats went up to $95. They had the cutest faux fur coats for $95 that are very in this season and will keep you super warm!

We rated the Opening Ceremony sample sale a 7 out of 10. Prices were excellent, but there wasn’t any merchandise there to die for. There were also only two pairs of shoes on display. However, the room was a decent size filled with about 12 racks of clothing. Right now the sale is scheduled to be open two days, but we predict they will extend. We are recommending that you check out the Opening Ceremony sample sale. There are no “wow pieces,” but you can definitely stock up on the cheap. Happy shopping!

Stunning Pieces at the Dennis Basso Sample Sale

dennis basso sample sale review

As always, the Soiffer Haskin sales offer a very pleasant experience in terms of organization. The whole place was clean, neat and not too crowded. The items at the sale are exquisite, but the prices for Dennis Brown are not forgiving.

Dennis Basso is a luxury brand and for those who love the brand, the sale is great. You’ll get 50% off the retail prices. But if you are looking for a steal, this sale is definitely for you. Most of the gowns are over $4,000 (after the discount is applied!!!) Either way, the bottom line is that the sale has great items and expensive prices.

Also, keep in mind, Soiffer drops prices on the last day. Might be worth checking out.

Bill Blass Sample Sale Filled with Splashes of Color

bill blass sample sale review

The Bill Blass showroom was a beautiful space and was filled with colorful handbags. Most of the bags were pretty cute. They cost up to $250 at 80%-90% off. But still, even at 90% off, the place was pretty dead. Mind you, I went on the very first day.

There were three-four rows of clothing. The clothing racks didn’t present anything highly valuable. The only rack that stood out was the one with tulle ruffle skirts.. they were of beautiful colors and fun – and priced at $119.

There were a ton of shoes to choose from: pricing was as low at $10 and went up to $100. Some styles were cute, but again, this really isn’t a brand to die for and run to buy even at these prices. If you missed this one, don’t sweat. The good ones are coming up in 1.5 months.

What You’ll Find at the Global Fashions Sample Sale

global fashions group sample sale

Another year and with it another Global Fashions Group. The weather wasn’t great so tracking out wasn’t that easy in the sub-zero temperature. In terms of merchandising – most of the items were Valentino, with some Valentino Red and Missoni as well.

The sale had both clothes and shoes. Shoes were priced at 70% off highest retail price, and clothes were 80% off. Unfortunately, the items are missing price tags, so you have to rely on your phone and research throughout. If you’re looking to spend $300-$1,000 per item, then you should check the Global Fashions sale.
