Bonpoint Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Beautiful Pieces at the Bonpoint sale

Bonpoint sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

ShopDrop users are always looking for great deals on children’s clothes. So we were very excited to check out the Bonpoint sale this past week. Just because children grow out of their clothes quickly, does NOT mean that there should be any sacrifice on style and BonPoint seems to agree! The sale was held in the same building as the Jimmy Choo and The Row sample sale. The sale was organized by size (or the child’s age) and featured both winter and summer items. Clothing items were 60% off marked price while shorts and shoes were 70% off retail price. There were even nifty charts around the room showing what 60% off would be on various price points. The inventory was truly beautiful and made me wish I could fit into the clothes…

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10 because while the sale was organized with plenty of pieces, the discount left something to be desired.

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review The Row

Designer Goods at Designer Prices at The Row

The Row Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Sample Sales are always a great place to get designer items at a major discount, which can help those who can’t always afford to shop designer. These discounts were not to be found at The Row sample sale. Even with an apparent discount of 70% off all Ready to Wear, handbags, and footwear, I could not find anything under $500. The Row is the clothing line of famed twins, Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. The pair are known for their high fashion taste and their collection does not disappoint in that facet. The sale was organized by size and item. Racks with sizes XS, S, M, and L lined the lines with tables of sweaters, bags, and shoes in the middle and front. The pieces were understated and in muted colors, ranging from blacks, grays, blues, whites, and creams.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a wide selection, the pieces were still extremely expensive and nothing stood out as exceptional. It was also interesting to note that the sale was empty, which hopefully goes as a sign that the prices were not good enough to attempt major crowds. The sale also did not allow photos, which might have made it difficult to shop for someone else.

Twice in One Year: The Jimmy Choo Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We can’t believe it either. The Jimmy Choo sample sale usually rolls around at the start of every spring. We are already mentally prepared for scoring an invitation, waiting in line, competing with other shoppers, and waiting for those last day reductions. However, we were not ready for the Jimmy Choo sample sale to pop up this week as well! There’s not much of a difference between the spring sale and this sale, except for the selection. This time around the selection was much better. I remember back in the spring being disappointed with the selection and only leaving with one pair of boots. There were also repeat shoes from previous sales.

Pricing was almost the same as last time. Women’s shoes started at $250 instead of $200. Men’s shoes obnoxiously started at $150. Bags also started at $250. They had a lot of merchandise out, especially in size 37. It was also very well organized by size. The line to get in (even with an invitation) was extremely long. It went down 18th St. and wrapped around 6th Ave. When shoppers finally entered, boy were they shopping! Shoppers had multiple bags filled to the rim! I guess all that waiting makes you crazy! Don’t you worry! They will be restocking all week. Even on the first day, staff members were bringing out new boxes. Happy shopping!

We will be updating this post on Friday to report on reductions. Check back here for more information. Watch our Instagram (@shopdropapp) for live reporting.

Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop White and Warren

Just in Time for Fall: The White and Warren Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We can all agree this fall has been very temperamental. One day you’re in a winter coat, and the next you’re in a tee and a cardigan. Stock up for this crazy fall weather (and probably more to come) at the White and Warren sample sale. The White and Warren sample sale has the coziest cashmere clothing that will keep you warm on the chilly days but won’t suffocate you on the warm days. Their cashmere tees are perfect for layering on those in-between days. My favorite had to be the cashmere shirt and pant set. I swear, I will never leave my sofa with that on!

We rated the White and Warren sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The merchandise was very cute! It was well stocked, but there wasn’t a ton in there. Two days should be good for this sale. They will be restocking the wraps/blankets, but it is unclear for other items. Additionally, the sale was pretty well priced. It was unclear what was a sample and what was stock, which in turn make the pricing a little hazy. Stock up on cozy cashmere tops, bottoms, sweaters, and accessories this fall! Happy shopping!

Fashion Review Robert Cavalli Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

The Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale: Take Two

By: Cristina Martin 

Two time’s a charm, I guess, for the Roberto Cavalli sample sale. Roberto Cavalli hosted a sample sale just last month at Clothingline. You can read all about how awful that sale was in our full report. This time Soiffer Haskin has taken the Roberto Cavalli burden on and is attempting to rid the merchandise for the brand. Let me tell you, there are clear improvements. Roberto Cavalli is a brand for people who have a flashier taste. (Absolutely nothing wrong with that.) This Roberto Cavalli sample sale had clothing, shoes, and accessories for both the flashy and the subtle dresser. Even some of the flashy items were cute! They had jackets with beautiful beading and patterns. The beautiful beadwork continued onto jeans with unique flower patterns. On the other hand, the horrendous snakeskin outfits were brought from the last sale to haunt us.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli Sample sale a 6 out of 10. They went up three points since the quality and quantity of the merchandise improved.  However, the prices are still very high. I understand that the brand prices in the thousands, but $480 for a Roberto Cavalli jacket is still a bit high in my opinion. Just like the last sale, men make out the best. Men had an array of handsome traditional and non-traditional suits. Men can also browse through sweaters, casual wear, and shoes. There was also a selection of funky pieces, but men’s was definitely tamer. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed at the Roberto Cavalli, but we managed to sneak in some for you all. If you have any questions, please DM us on Instagram (@shopdropapp). Happy shopping!

Creature Comforts at the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade Bedding Sample Sale

Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Spade bedding sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Confession: I love Calvin Klein bedding! Their sheets and shams are incredibly soft and feel like you’re lying in a cloud. So I was extremely excited to stop by the Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kate Spade bedding sample sale today. The sale was in a large room with bins of sheets, duvets, shams and throws lining the walls, with a separate room for towel sets. Most of the pieces were Calvin Klein sheets, which came in muted greys, blues, and white. The pieces were generally organized by brand, then style, then size. Most of the pieces are Full/Queen, which is the bedding sample size, but there also plenty of King options. The only pieces that came in Twin or TwinXL were one style of Kate Spade duvet covers.

We rated this sale a 9 out of 10 because of the great selection and the amazing prices. I walked away with two Kate Spade duvet sets and only spent $40; normal retail price for both items would be $200. Everything is under $40! But, everything is cash only, so make sure to stop by an ATM before heading over!

Fashion Herno Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Move Over Canada Goose the Herno Sample is in Town

Herno Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The first Herno sample sale has hit the streets of Manhattan. Herno is a hot, up and coming Italian outerwear brand. You can find them right next to Canada Goose in Nordstrom. Now you can find them for 70% off in midtown. They had a large selection of both men’s and women’s coats, sweaters, and furs. At 70% off you can score a coat for a few hundred dollars.

The staff was incredibly sweet, and the space was great for shopping. However, you can expect long lines. They are also only accepting credit cards. Ditch your jacket from last year and head over to the Hanro sample sale for a new model. Winter is coming, and they are saying it’s going to be a cold one! Happy shopping!

Reminisce back to Summer at the Jack Rogers Sample Sale

Jack Rogers Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Do you think we can squeeze in a few more days of flipflop use in this rather warm October? I think not. The cold might be here to stay, but you can still head over to the Jack Rogers sample sale and cure that nostalgia with some shopping. Jack Rogers is known for their adorable leather sandals. All shoes were $40. Handbags were also $40 and backpacks were $30. If you purchase 4 or more pairs of shoes you get 50% off your entire order. Not a bad deal! The Jack Rogers sample sale also had the cutest little rain booties. If you like to stand out, then red and yellow are for you. If you’re more into laying low, then definitely go for the beautiful power pink ones.

We rated the Jack Rogers sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. It’s a great sale if you’re a fan of the brand. Good prices and lots of great merchandise. Sizes went from 5 to 11, but there was an abundance in size 7. Additionally, you can look through a few bins of clothing for $5, $25, and $45 to see if something suits your fancy. We do have to report that they were having an issue with their credit card machine. Being that the sale is credit card only, they were taking down your credit card information to then charge you later. They did promise to destroy all credit card information once the transaction has been processed. Happy shopping!
