Skincare is something that is often overlooked, but vastly important. Take care of yourself at the Korres sample sale. Find all your skincare needs here. Korres products are usually pricey, but at the Korres sample sale, you’ll find products for up to 60% off. However, don’t be fooled! We found shower gel for cheaper on other sites. Your best bet is to do some research before you go. Look up your must-haves to see if you’re better off going somewhere else.
The space is quite small, which leaves little room for inventory. We were told that certain items may sell quickly. (Restocking? We didn’t hear anything.) The staff is very friendly and attentive. They also have a few samples you can try on! If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth popping in this two day sale for 10 minutes. Happy shopping!

We are in the middle of a heat wave this holiday week in New York City. The 4th of July is approaching, the temperatures are rising, and apparently so are prices at the Maison De Papillon sample sale. The clothing was definitely very high quality, but prices didn’t meet sample sale expectations. Discounts were barely 50% off, which makes you rethink your decision on whether to leave your air conditioned office to visit this sale.
We gave the Maison De Papillon sale a 4 out of 10 ShopDrop Rating for the obvious reasons. It’s a holiday week, go and enjoy yourself. Get out of New York for a bit. There will be better deals next week. Happy Shopping! (And Happy 4th!)

Are you tired of your boyfriend wearing the same thing everyday? Take him out of his comfort zone at the John Varvatos sample sale. He’ll go from white tee to David Beckham overnight. The John Varvatos sample sale carried numerous styles in multiple sizes, for both winter and summer. They even had shoes and accessories! We rated the Jon Varvatos sample sale an 8 out of 10. The shopping experience was very positive. There was plenty of space to accommodate a large number of shoppers.
Prices were also excellent! Almost everything was under $100. Of course the usual exceptions like suits and leather was on the pricey side. (Those were under $300.) After work, swing by the the John Varvatos sample sale. You can thank us later. Happy shopping!

So I have to say, Milly had good intentions. All proceeds of today’s one-day sample sale benefit Publicolor, a New York based non-profit studying the psychological effects of color to improve the education among youth. However, as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
This sale was one day only, so either you made it or you didn’t. They charged a cover, $20 for priority and $10 for regular admission. After they charged you to grace them with your presence, the prices were astronomical. I understand they need to turn somewhat of a profit to donate, but come on! If you’re charging people to come in, you need to meet them half way with better prices.
If you’re in the market for $100 shorts and feeling charitable, then the sale is for you. If you’re living among the other half and experience #BrokeGirlProblems, then you didn’t miss much. Happy shopping!

Shelly and Renee sales brings us another sophisticated sample sale with exquisite Pamella Roland gowns. If you have a special black tie event, you can score a beautiful embellished gown at the Pamella Roland sample sale. Higher-end sample sale prices are always technically high. However, we felt that the prices were fair for the merchandise available. Gowns were around $600, and gowns with crazy beading went for about $1,600.
The selection was incredible. There wasn’t a ton of merchandise, but all items were beautiful. They also had a variety of sizes. Like we always say – quality not quantity. Treat yourself at the Pamella Roland sample sale, and then treat yourself to a night out on the town

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly covetedReformation Sample Sale,but sadly we were let down. We had to stand in the blazing, boiling, burning heat for hours. Clothing by Reformation is seen all over Instagram, featured by renowned bloggers such as Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and Jacey Duprie of DamselinDior and those alike.
As we stood on Greene street dying a slow and very warm death, we pondered the question. Is the Reformation Sample Sale worth it? After consulting with shoppers leaving, philosophers thinking and our inner selves, we have arrived at the definitive conclusion – absolutely not. Yes, the clothing is very cute, extremely chic and seen all over social media. No one, not even our worst enemies should be forced to stand in boiling heat, unless they’re at the beach getting a nice tan with a margarita in hand. As you probably followed from our Instagram stories, Zara and Reformation make merchandise that are extremely similar in pattern, color and style. The best perk is that Zara is way cheaper.
We rated the Reformation Sample Sale a 3 out of 10. You would think based on the line that wrapped around the block, that they were giving away free puppies and ice cream. But no: no puppies, no ice cream. If you don’t have time to melt on the sidewalks of NYC, we recommend you go to Zara and check out their merchandise. Even better, sit on your couch, pour yourself a nice bloody glass of rosé and shop online!

Today we had the chance to stop by the Karen Millen Sample Sale at 261 West 36th Street. If you are in need of a bright pop of color in your closet this summer, the Karen Millen Sample Sale has everything you need – for cheap!
The Karen Millen Sample Sale boats racks organized by size and filled with colorful dresses, tops and skirts. There was merchandise in nearly every shade of the rainbow including Gen Z Yellow to Millennial Pink. A majority of the merchandise still had their original tags from Bloomingdales on them! They also had a decent selection of blazers and outerwear. There was a small selection of shoes as well, a majority of them were heels.
We rated the Karen Millen Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise in variety of colors but it was mostly formal workwear and evening. The prices were really good on the dresses, pants and tops but more expensive on outerwear and blazers. The shoes were definitely the best deal they offered, buying 1 pair for 30$ and 2 pairs for 50$! If you are in need for something bright in fun, we recommend you take a look!
