SuperDry Sample Sale is Exactly What You Would Expect from 260

superdry sample sale 2019

SuperDry was a typical 260 sample sale: prices that you know will be reduced on the last day, tons of merchandise but no good finds. People on IG were messaging asking us if they have jackets for men, and they didn’t have the items that people want from Superdry, they just have random pieces.

I didn’t even know SuperDry made denim dresses but at the sale we found out. We were expecting a workout brand, but found a lot of 2nd-tier items like dresses, jeans and shorts.  I would have liked to see more leggings, more dry-fit shirts, jackets.

Our recommendation, skip this. If you’re looking for workout gear, hold out for a sale with better pricing and merchandise.

Modern Vice Sample Sale Spring 2019

modern vice sample sale

We loved the last 2 sample sales we visited and we are excited for this Modern Vice sample sale as well. It did not disappoint. Hosted in the Modern Vice headquarters in the fashion district of New York, the sale offered multi-leveled shelves filled with shoes, slip-on, and boots. The footwear was organized by size and ranged in price from $149-$249, reaching up to 70% off retail.

The staff was extremely sweet and helpful and worked with you until you found a pair of boots that suited you perfectly. An additional perk is that the manufacturing studio, hidden in the back of the showroom. You can choose any top of the shoe you like, and they’ll craft the shoe especially for you right then and there. If you’re looking for amazing-quality footwear that will last you through the rough winter season of NY, this sample sale is a must.

The Kleinfeld Sample Sale leaves Brooklyn and Surprises Us in Jersey

Kleinfeld Pop up Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Bye, Bye Brooklyn! The Kleinfeld pop sample sale has now entered the infamous “6th borough,” New Jersey. The Kleinfeld sample sale popped up in Mill Creek Mall. The space, already designated for evening gown sales as it is a prom dress store, is the perfect place for a bride to be to browse through thousands of dresses with ease. The location was enormous. We checked it out in the evening, and there was only a hand full of shoppers.

We rated the Kleinfeld pop up sample sale an 8 out of 10. There were a ton of beautiful dresses to match any bride’s style. They also had a range of sizes from small to large. Prices started in the $1,000 range and went up to the $5,000 range. You can also shop vails (in a few colors, including back) and beautiful floral and jeweled headpieces. It is worth crossing water and heading to Jersey for this sale. Secaucus is also very close to the Lincoln Tunnel. Buses from Port Authority will drop you off right in front of the mall. This is the to be if you have a big day coming up. Congratulations, and happy shopping!

260 Sample Sale Artis Dr. Jart+ Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Stila Tocca

Low Prices at the Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+ Sample Sale

Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+

By Melanie Capruso

Finally a sample sale with reasonable prices! The Stila, Artis, Tocca, and Dr. Jart+ sample sale with 260 featured endless items at quality prices. Each brand had their own section which features all their classic items. The Dr. Jart+ area had their face masks and signature skin care products. Tocca had the back section with their signature candles, perfumes, and bath products. The artis showing was less then expected, with mostly sets of brush. The Stila section was the most expansive with eyeshadows, both glitter and matte, foundation, primers, eyeliners, lipstick, highlighter, and lipliner. Out of all of the brands, Dr. Jart+ had the least amount of products. This could be because I went on day 3 of the sale.

While this sale earned a high rating of 9 out of 10 for the variety of products and the ;ow prices, it did loose a point for the congestion. Both times I went, I had to wait in a long, impatient line. The first time is was below 30ºF and the second time it was raining. It certainly ruins the experience when I enter the building soaking wet.

Fashion French Connection Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

One of the Best Sales We’ve Seen in a While: French Connection Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this positive about a sample sale. The French Connection sample sale is conveniently located in Midtown. When I walked in the coat check guys were the most attentive and sweet. After chatting them up, I walked to the back and entered the sale. Men’s was first as you walked in. There was a mid-sized section of coats, tops, bottoms, and even $5  ties! If you have to wear ties for work, you can’t beat that! The next, larger room contained women’s. It was the same deal: tops, bottoms, coats, and dresses. There were so many beautiful pieces, but dresses and skirts really caught my eye. Shoes filled the third and final room.

We rated the French Connection Sample sale a 9 out of 10. Yes, it was that good. The clothing was super cute, and the prices were unbeatable! You can use this sale to fill up your closet or mark everyone off your Christmas list. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. Check out the French Connection sample sale. You won’t regret it! Happy shopping!

Beautiful Building, Uneventful Sale: The ALTUZARRA Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Altuzarra sample sale was held on the 14th floor of the Woolworth building down by City Hall. If you’re an NYC architecture nerd like me, you will really appreciate the beautiful interior as you pass through the lobby. Other than that the Altuzarra sample sale was uneventful. The sale felt more like a regular retail boutique rather than a sample sale. The clothing was very pretty as that brand always delivers nice designs. This sale is perfect if you are going for that urban chic look.

We rated the Altuzarra sample sale a 7 out of 10. Pricing was really confusing, and still quite high. There were only a few racks of clothing and a long table with knits and accessories. The best part of the sale was the shoes. They had a large variety of numerous sizes. If you’re a huge fan of the brand, then check it out. (or if you just want an excuse to go inside the Woolworth building) Happy shopping!

Solid Striped x Redone Sample Sale: All Seasons Under One Roof

By: Cristina Martin

Solid Striped and Redone joined together to bring us a fabulous sample sale.  Solid and Striped is all swimsuits and a few bags. Browse through a few racks of one-pieces and several bins of separates. If you are looking for a super cute bathing suit for some fun Insta pics, then this is the sale for you.

On the other hand, if you have the body where you need a bathing suit that has support, then skip this sale. The suits were very colorful and fun! There were also quite a few high-waisted options. This sale is also better if you’re into mixing and matching because you will have to dig to find a matching set.

Not into bathing suits right now? Shop Redone. Redone had racks of denim. You can find jeans and denim skirts and shorts. You can also pick up some cute graphic tees and sweaters. We rated the Solid Striped x Redone sample sale an 8 out of 10. Prices were decent. The space was huge so there was plenty of room to shop and no lines! Check it out and pick up something for now and next summer. Happy shopping!
