The Pricing at the Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale is Amazing

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Roberto Cavalli sample sale is being hosted by the third party retailer Luxe Market in SoHo this week. If you haven’t gone yet, you’re missing out. Almost everything at the sale is 90% off, but the selection is somewhat limited, so you better get over there ASAP!

At this sample sale they have gowns, short dresses, embellished jeans, leather vests and jackets, and beautiful tops. Most of the pieces are classic Cavalli. Funky patterns, bright colors, and unique designs. Although the selection is small each item comes in various sizes and they will be restocking daily. The showroom is very well organized and the staff members are dedicated to making your shopping experience superb. Overall I rated this sale an 8.5/10. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with Luxe Market.

Bras, Undies and PJs Oh My! – The Cosabella Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a preview of the Cosabella Sample Sale which opens tomorrow and early for our VIP customers. The sale features a huge selection of lingerie and sleepwear (you still want to look chic in your sleep). 

The sale is organized by different item types, there is everything from wired bras to rompers and in between. Also you can literally “taste the rainbow” since most of the merchandise comes in all the colors of the rainbow. Now let’s talk about the pricing because it is totally amazing. Even better if you find an item with a red tag, it is an additional 50% off the sample sale price (yes – you read that right, an additional 50% off). There is also a decent size range available! 

Overall we rated the sale a 9 out of 10. These prices are just too good and everybody is always in need of some new undergarments. If you are a VIP, you are in luck because you can shop the sale early tomorrow AM!

Sparkling Sequins – The Parker Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Parker Sample Sale. While we were hoping to score some amazing sample pieces, there was an extremely limited selection. The pricing was nothing special either. If you need a sequined dress for your next Studio 54, Gatsby themed party or to just wear around the house, look no further. There is a decent selection of gowns as well. Just as a warning, the line to try stuff on is extremely long and will in fact test you patience.

Overall we rated the Parker Sample Sale an 5 out of 10. The selection was nothing crazy, we recommend you stop by if you are in the area. If not, you really shouldn’t lose sleep over this sale.

The Dolce and Gabbana Sample Sale is Amazeballs

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Dolce and Gabbana sample sale is currently being hosted by the third party retailer Luxe Market in the heart of Soho. We got a sneak peek of the sale at our VIP hours this morning, and we were NOT disappointed. If you (foolishly) didn’t buy a VIP pass you might have missed out on some of the best pieces given that there is a small selection, but don’t fret, the sale is continuing through tomorrow night.

At this D&G sample sale, the ready to wear items range from 50%-85% off and the retail prices are listed on the tags so you’re able to see what kind of deals you’re getting. As far as merchandise goes there are several stunning jackets, blouses, bottoms, and a couple of gorgeous dresses. There was also a decent offering of accessories including handbags, backpacks, wallets, and scarves, but the shoe selection is nearly nonexistent. There was only one pair of D&G sneakers, and they were far too eccentric for my wardrobe. Guys don’t worry, you’re included in this sale too. There are lots of cool tops and outerwear options for you as well, but most of the styles have old western designs on them.

Overall I rated this sale an 8/10. Despite the fact that the quantity of the merchandise was somewhat limited, the pieces they did have were awesome. Furthermore, the pricing was good, it was well organized, and the staff members were beyond kind. Happy shopping, friends!

SEA Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a preview of Sea NY Sample Sale before it opened to the public this morning. The space is organized by size and allows for shoppers to easily search through the racks. The racks boasted tons of beautiful chiffon maxi dresses, patterned skirt and ruffled tops. While the merchandise was stunning, the pricing was not up to standards. As well, the selection had some amazing pieces for fall and you know it is never to early to stock up (sweater szn people). If you aren’t familiar with the brand, the clothing at Sea NY boasts various earthy hues and lots of details.

Overall, we rated the sale an 8 out of 10. We are hoping for some additional discounts on the merchandise and then we will be talking!

The Illesteva Sample Sale will have you Looking like a Celeb in no time

The Illesteva sample sale was held in its showroom downtown in the Canal area. The largest room had 4 tables lined with sunglasses 🕶; designs included the those worn by Gigi Hadid, Kourtney K, Meghan Markle and other celebrities. While the selection was extensive, the prices weren’t nearly as impressive. They ranged from $50 to $180 but the average sunglasses costed $100-$120. I mean, that’s not even 50% off for a lot of the styles. 

There was a separate room with handbags ($175), ski goggles, optic glasses and men’s sunglasses. The staff members wanted us to know that the merchandise would be restocked throughout the sale – so there you go, we’ve passed the information on. To be completely honest, we’ve scored Illesteva sunglasses for the same prices in discount stores, so we can’t give the sample sale more than a 6/10.

The Rebecca Taylor Sample Sale is Already Wiped Out

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Rebecca Taylor sample sale was a hot mess, but I was happy with the merchandise and price points. The staff told me that a large crowd came through this morning, which contributed to the disaster of the showroom.

Although the prices increased from the last Rebecca Taylor sale, I still thought they were decent. The discounts ranged from 50% – 80% off which is more than I can say for many of the sales I go to. As far as merchandise goes, there were tons of bottoms and shoes but the tops and dresses were not as plentiful. Most of the shoes were Loeffler Randall which was a pleasant surprise, and they were fifty bucks! I was not as pleased with the employees running this sale as I was with the pricing. There were plenty of staff members in the showroom but they were not helpful and they severely lacked  organizational skills.

Overall I gave this sale a 7/10. I found a bunch of cute stuff that I wouldn’t have gone broke buying, and that made me really happy. But don’t expect to be able to find anything easily, you’re gonna have to do some digging. Good luck, shoppers!

Gowns Galore! – The Vera Wang Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to stop by the Vera Wang Sample Sale. The sale is extremely organized and everything is divided by size and item type. While the racks were stocked with a majority of stunning tulle, silk and bejeweled wedding pieces. Vera Wang is known for its unbelievable wedding dresses and this sale did not disappoint. Don’t worry! There are still some very nice RTW available for purchase and gorgeous colored gowns (perfect for those bridesmaids). In addition, the sale had a decent amount of accessories – think vails, headbands and belts. I know you are all wondering what the pricing is like, but let me tell you that the gowns are not cheap (I mean it is your wedding day so). Every piece is individually priced, the wedding dresses range anywhere from $700 (past season merchandise) to $2,200 (new season merchandise). Beware there is limited space to try on the dresses and a limit of 3 gowns.

The Gottex Studio Sample Sale Sadly Has No Bathing Suits

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Gottex Studio Sample Sale is taking place on West 39th in a very tiny showroom. If you were hoping to purchase a cheap suit for the last month of summer, you’re not going to be able to; this sale is strictly stocked with their activewear line, X By Gottex.

The price points at this sale are uh-may-zing… Nothing costs more than $20 and the leggings are $15! The only thing that could make it better would be if they gave you everything for free! They had leggings, biker shorts, tees, tanks, sports bras, and joggers ranging in size from XS to XL. Although there isn’t a huge selection everything is cleanly separated by size, and the staff members would be more than willing to help you find something. Overall I rated this sale a 7/10. Although I was slightly disappointed that they didn’t have any swimwear, I couldn’t help but drop my jaw at the discounts. All of the products were really high quality as far as workout clothes go, and everything was very cheap. Definitely hit up this sale  if you’re nothing like me and actually work out! Or if you are like me and wear workout clothes just cause you’re too lazy to put on anything else.

Everything Is Under $20 – The Rachel Roy Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had a chance to stop by the Rachel Roy Sample Sale located in midtown. To say the least, the sale did not disappoint. Nearly every item is under $20 (you can skip your SweetGreen salad today).

The sample sale featured a huge variety of silk tops, midi dresses and slick pants. We were loving the selection of gorgeous chiffon dresses available in different prints like polka dot (pretty woman vibes) and stunning florals (florals for Fall, groundbreaking). While you might be thinking, I don’t need anything. There is a really great selection of merchandise. Let’s be real, if you aren’t broke from the Hermes Sample Sale then you should stop by (you need a dress to match those Hermes shoes, duh). While the sale is not very organized, so you really have to dig through the racks. There is a limited selection of bags, jewelry, bathing suits and shoes available for purchase.

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. This sale is truly a hidden gem, with everything under $20 it is totally worth it! We recommend you stop by!
