Make your dreams come true, your shopping dreams that is, at the Dreams On Air Sample Sale. With the entire front of the store filled with discounted luxury items, you might want to check this sale out! Spacious and tidy with pleasant sales associates, you will be sure to enjoy your shopping experience. Enjoy up to an additional 50% off already marked sample and stock items for up to an overall 80% off.
There are T-Shirts by Millennial as low as $20 and a suede duster trench vest by Sarah Swann for $500. With this price range, everyone will be able to find some items within their budget. Not to mention, there is a wide selection of shoes and accessories. The most disappointing part about the shoe selection is that all shoes are sample size so if you’re a size 36, you’re in luck. Mules, pumps, and flats, they have them all.
The Solar Eclipse (August 21, 2017) did have a few of us squinty eyed huh? A visit to Showroom Seven had myself as well as a few ShopDroppers doing the same! Up to the 7th floor, walking into a maze of showrooms, mini offices huddled in centerfield, fashion archive bookshelves, racks and tables; stacked with clothing, jewelry, bags, belt and shoes. Not forgetting, the bloggers (thats me), ShopDrop team (thats us!) mixed in all the fun. What was my perspective you might ask? Hmm, with a paintbrush in hand,* “what was I really looking at?” A stellar fashion house that is! In its truest art form, “organized chaos,” INDEED! Cheers to another fun sample sale adventure because isn’t that what we all are working to spend our money on, its no secret. 😉
There is a ShopDropApp special event sample sale today at Showroom Seven located at (501 10th ave) and before scrolling down for an exclusive sneak peak, I must say the price range is a little obscure. Putting the “responsible spending” shopping advice aside, what I loved most about this sample sale is you’re guaranteed a good buy with this melting pot of designers.
Did I mention, free champagne, 5% off if you’re coming on behalf of ShopDrop, lets turn it up a notch right before NYFW, shall we? Thank you Showroom Seven for opening your doors to us on this special occasion. H.A.S.H.T.A.G : #eclipse #OnceInASolarEclipseSale. So here it goes, pretty pink suede, cool corduroy, heavy leather, light down feather jackets. All of these pieces decorated the racks and I was immediately convinced that I wasn’t prepared for Fall as I am now, after this sale! Take a peak at my favorite finds!
Get all the LemLem thats left! Refreshing sample sale today, August 17th, 2017
I just stopped in for some eye candy window retail at Lemlem’s sample sale located at the studio (3rd floor) on 495 Broadway (heart of Soho), which lasts until 7:00pm today. I must say, Lemlem is an airy fairy Hampton’s goddess, martini gal and fashion force to be reckoned with! To all of our shoppers, if anyone has a vacation on their schedule, stop in for Lemlem’s sale today! 75% off of almost everything including scarves, coverups and my new found favorite bracelets that are being sold at $10 a band, mixed with gold and rainbow silks, to layer up on your wrist. Lemlem you are such a breath of fresh air ! Amazing sales!
Other than Lemlem’s apparel showcasing its best of the best highlighter colors on soft linen sheer rompers, dresses, joggers and blouses, I can’t comment enough on how easy the shopping experience was. Everything was spaced out, deserving of their own spotlight and the chart below shows pricing for all accessory lovers 🙂 Upfront in your face like hey, no excuses now, buy me today!
Even though theres no private try on area, the minute you hold up one of Lemlem’s statement pieces in the mirror, the gold jewelry display is right beside you, and all of sudden you lose your marbles, —fair warning. Speaking of marble, there’s a beautiful gray marble table, displaying Lemlems very own summer staple, airy beach joggers! Definitely a buy! The pictures below scream, I’m not your boring gray sweatpants for the winter, wear me right now. Also, look out for the treasure box with the cute little bralets. Lemlem you have it all covered for the summer!
Fun Fact: Lemlem means to flourish or bloom in Amharic and is recognized through its handcrafted collection that inspire economic independence in the founder, Liya Kebede’s, native country Ethiopia, as well as, preserve the art of weaving.

If Marco Polo had a sister – that’s how the brand positions itself. Classic work pieces made out of the finest silks. Full price items range at around $400-$500 so at the sale expect prices in the $100 range: tops, skirts, pants, and blazers. Think modern, clean and fashionable.

Y-7’s first ever warehouse sale? I couldn’t believe it either, because it was executed to perfection! You can visit the Y-7 warehouse sample sale located at the original Hip-Hop Yoga Studio (Y7 HQ, 262 Bowery, 4th Floor, NY, NY) starting today Tuesday August 15th- Wednesday August 16th; and trust me when I say this, you feel the “namast-ay fly” aesthetic as soon as you walk in. Need I mention their too-good-to-be-true negotiation with the weather? I mean, the temptation to purchase a sweater on a rainy day like today from a vast selection of all-black comfy Y-7 sweatshirts/hoodies with trendy slogan designs?! Y-7 for the win!
But, lets back it up a bit, trekking 4 stair flights up to the warehouse; Y-7 definitely knows its customers, getting everyone to kick a sweat before the goods and glory sales. Ice-cold tea samples (RUNA) served right before the race to the racks is most definitely a well-thought-out refresher of choice, another check for Y-7. As you head inside, the atmosphere gets you bumping and flowing to the most popular genre of music in the U.S right now, Hip-Hop!! Yep, its pretty damn ideal.
I walked in with a mission, to get all the information on site on behalf of the ShopDrop team, and completely got distracted when I saw this Kanye sweater “inspo.” It was Kanye West in pretzel position, hell yeah!! Y-7 is definitely onto something, unique and genius! Lucky for me, there was only 1 small left, so I dropped everything and called grabs! Don’t worry, I took tons of pictures, just for you to see! I mean 40% off today? 50% off tomorrow? I couldn’t resist.
For the rest of the apparel, sizes range from XS-XL in most styles including the hoodies/sweatshirts/tour-style t-shirts, sweats, leggings and sports bras. The prices have taken a steep downfall from $250 retail to $16 or less in apparel and accessories (headbands, face towels, bookbags, candles, phone cases, beanie hats, pins). ShopDrop has you covered ! You definitely want to yoga, sleep, study, eat, netflix in this gear!
P.S. The best part of this sample sale is getting to know the brand! Y-7 established itself in 2013, opening studios all over NYC and LA and has been featured in all the best magazines, (Cosmo, Forbes, InStyle), including Vogue, quoting ” Yoga For People Who Put On Gangsta Rap and Handle It.” It truly cant get better than a recommendation from Vogue, you’ll be surprised how much of a spirit animal this brand can be for you when you shop their gear! Happy Shopping friends!
The Sachin & Babi sale is opening on Monday and we were lucky to get a sneak peak. In summary, the merchandise is sick and the prices are even sicker. If you have the opportunity to get there next week, drop everything and go. Below I am including images and price lists from the sale. Remember to mention that you found out about the sale through ShopDrop and next time our users will get early access!
The showroom is in the brand office, which means that prices are low. Items start at $5 and don’t go higher than $200. For gowns that retail at $1,900 this is a steal. The sale includes both stock and samples. Items are from the most recent 2017 season and there are plenty of sizes. I saw a number of size 10 gowns. There were tons of gowns, dresses, tops, skirts, pants, shorts, sweaters, belts and jewelry.
A bit about the Sachin & Babi brand. Trained by Oscar de la Renta himself, Sachin created his own brand in 2009, which is haute couture, young and vivacious all at once.
Make sure to hit to hit up the sale & mention ShopDrop.
Happy Independence Day! Hope you’re enjoying the warm weather as much as we are!

How appropriate is it that the first truly warm day this month coincided with the Jimmy Choo sample sale opening? I showed up near the Met Pavilion at the early hours of dawn to reserve my rightful place in the line of anxious bargain hunters and fashionistas! Okay, maybe it was 11AM and I really didn’t feel like rolling out of bed that early. Whatever, still felt like dawn to me. So I stood there for a good hour staring at my phone and feeling the sun beat down mercilessly on my sweltering head. Observing those in line was fun: the girl who nearly pulled off her shirt in genuine frustration, the man who was saying something quite passionately into his headphone in a different language to someone who must have been thrilled to be on the receiving end and the girls who looked like they walked off the runway to grab some Jimmy Choos. All in all, the line moved relatively quickly, and I made the trek up four flights of stairs to learn that I now earned the right to stand in yet another line, where I would receive a ticket in exchange for my bag and then voila! I entered paradise.
The wait was completely worth it – the white room was filled with people scurrying from table to table. The crowds were managed nicely, there was enough room to approach each table, check out the merchandise, try on a few shoes and move on. The tables were organized by size – so if you are a size 8, you would walk over to the few 8 tables and try on shoes until you were content. The selection was awesome: flats, heels, booties, boots, sandals – you name it. There was also a table with accessories, which included awesome purses, hard-cased clutches and handbags. Prices ranged between $200 and $350 for all items. Considering the fact that at retail, Jimmy Choo shoes cost between $625 and $4,425 (I kid you not), the shoes at the sale are practically free. Well, at least you would think they are by the huge bags of shoes people were walking out with! Anyhow, I’ll stop bogging you down with details and will let you enjoy the pictures from the sale. These are from my iphone but I will try to have more professional photos down the road.
If you want to hit up the sale, you will need a special code so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you all the gory details. What: Jimmy Choo sample sale When: Tue, May 16th – Thu, May 18th I 8:00 AM – 7:00 PM Where: 123 West 18th St, New York, NY
Interview with Z, founder and manager of 375 pop-up
To passerby, 375 Lexington might seem like any other NY address. However, to those New Yorkers looking for a real steal in urban fashion, the address is a sanctuary. For seven days every month, 375 Lexington turns into a pop-up store for urban designers
E: What are some of the unique brands you bring to your customers:
Z: Our popup is always a combination of traditional luxury brands such as Chanel, Gucci and Loubutin, combined with up and coming urban designers. Some of the hottest designers include Marcelo Burlon County of Milan, Off-White and FDK One. In May, for the first time ever, we are bringing the ridiculously popular brand called Outlaw Moscow to New York. People will be flying in from all over the world for this one.
E: How do people find out about you? What’s your most prominent source of marketing?
Z: At 375, we don’t use any of the traditional marketing resources. We don’t have a website, a traditional office space or anything like that. We offer quality authentic items at amazing discounts and word travels. At our first pop-up we opened an Instagram account, and within a week had close to 1,500 followers. The lines into the store were around the block and we sold out of merchandise in the first three days of a ten-day pop-up. I realized then and there that we created something unique.
E: Why did you choose a pop-up model over a freestanding store:
Z: I believe that origins and remembering where you come from is important. The popup business changes fast. You never know which location it will take you to next. We fell in love with 375 Lexington as soon as we laid our eyes on it. Our fan base loves it as well – they flock to this location from all over the United States, whether it’s New York, Texas, or Los Angeles.
Additionally, freestanding stores have to have a consistent image and feel to them. We aren’t locked into anything. We stand for promoting unique fashion designers. Every month we choose someone else, and every month, our store looks different. That’s why people keep on coming back – there is always novelty at 375.
E: I imagine you came up with the name 375 because of the location. Is there anything else to the name?
Z: Although we sell clothes only 7 days out of 30, we work 24 hours seven days every single week. Sourcing clothes at discounted prices takes a lot of effort, and we put our all into it – so basically, we work not 365 days a year but 375. By now, the name is than an address, it is a symbol. So no matter where we go next, we will keep the name.
E: Moving forward, how do you see 375 evolving?
Z: No matter where we move or how long we are open for, we will always stay true to what we stand for: offering value to our customers through valuable hard-to-find merchandise for authentic prices. We will always engage with our consumers to ensure the highest quality and service.
What: 375 Pop Up
When: Sun, May 21 – Sun, May 28
Where: 375 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY
What time: Sun-Sun 12PM – 8PM
This morning we headed out to the MAJE sale hosted in midtown. The nice part was that there were no lines so we had an easy time getting in. From the first few moments at the sale it is obvious that MAJE is not an American brand. (It’s French). The sizes are European, so you had to translate numbers like 1,2,3 into 4,6,8. The racks at the entry are filled with jackets and tops perfect for the corporate woman. There were long tweed jackets in light pastel and bright pink colors. The designs are clean, chic and classy. Jackets were priced at $145, while tops were at $85. Leather tops and blazers were gorgeous and more expensive. Original prices are north of $500 – so all things considered, the sample sale offers significant bargains.
Toward the back of the store were the dresses – all selling for $105. This is where being a savvy consumer comes in handy. All of the dresses are nice. But at $105, some are nice and some are a steal. There were a number of long-sleeved dresses that can be worn to the office in the summer. A few slimming silhouettes, and some power cocktail dresses. Another awesome perk is that the dressing room was pretty convenient – we could try on dresses, make decisions and be in and out within 20 minutes.
If you have half an hour and can get to the area of 5th Ave and 28th St, we highly recommend you go. Details of the sale are below.
MAJE Sample Sale
