The Madhatter! – Eugenia Kim Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale in their own showroom! The room was filled with a variety of both summer and winter hats as well as a limited selection of shoes and bags.

The Eugenia Kim Sample Sale had whimsical summer hats that made us picture ourselves sitting on the French Riviera with a buttery croissant and cafe un latte, while the winter hats made us feel like we were wandering the snowy streets after completing some holiday shopping. I’m sure you have all seen the classic Eugenia Kim sun hat on bloggers and fashionistas across social media. This classic hat retails for $495 but today at the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale it is only $175!

We rated the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise is incredibly cute and chic for both winter and summer but still very expensive. There is a limited selection of shoes and bags, and the selection of hats is not big either. If you are traveling to a chic beach spot like Ibiza or planning on vacationing in Paris during the snowy Winter, we recommend you take a look!

Stripes and Gingham Galore – The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale

By Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the combined Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale downtown at 151 Wooster Street. Dreamy and colorful patterned apparel lined all the racks, a majority of which were dresses, skirts and tops.

The Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale felt as if you were transported from the rainy streets of New York to a bright and sunny day at the beach. The sale offered a lot of chic striped and gingham patterned merchandise. Caroline Constas offered both clothing from her collection as well as a section full of samples. The Caroline Constas samples were more limited and cheaper than the normal collection. Lemlem had a large collection of both maxi dresses, rompers and beach accessories but a limited selection of shoes.

We rated the Caroline Constas and Lemlem Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. The clothing was incredibly cute and chic but offered limited variation, especially Lemlem who seemed to only have striped merchandise. The apparel offered by both Caroline Constas and Lemlem felt as if it were designed solely for the summer months. The merchandise was still priced quite high and there was an extremely long line for both the fitting room and register. Yet all the  merchandise made us feel as if we were relaxing in the Hamptons with a glass of rosé in hand. If you are in need of chic summer clothing and have a larger budget, we recommend you take a look!

Prices Slashed on Last Day of Milly Sample Sale

A huge thank you to Sample Sale City for reviewing the sample sale for us! She gave the sale a 7 out 10 review. 8 out of 10 for pricing, 5 out of 10 for service, 10 out of 10 for line because there was no line. There was a large selection of merchandise but most of it was very old and could be dated a few seasons back. Photos and price lists from first and last day below. Enjoy!

Our Detailed Written Report from the Chloe Sample Sale

Chloe sample sale shopdrop review

Given that photos were strictly prohibited at the Chloe sample sale, we collected testimony from a number of ShopDrop users to come up with the following report.
Overall, we gave the sale an 8/10 because there was a huge selection but the prices were more attainable on the See by Chloe collection. And because there weren’t any Chloe bags left by the time we got there.

The sample sale has all seasons of clothes: winter sweaters and coats, summer dresses and tops skirts – everything. Collection includes items from current and past seasons. No actual samples. See by Chloe clothes retail $300-600 and then are 80% off at the sample sale, which makes it worthwhile. Lots of white and black solid separates.

Definitely worth checking out. One reason we took away points was because there were more Chloé clothes and only a few racks of see by Chloe, so selection of more affordable items wasn’t as abundant. There were quite a few wallets and a few gold rings and necklaces. Also, a huge selection of shoes in sizes and color.

For die-hard Chloe fans, the sale was probably a 9/10. Only downside is the bags.

Red Carpet Gowns at the J Mendel Private Sample Sale

J Mendel Sample Sale Review ShopDrop App

It’s the J Mendel private sample sale again, and that means days of planning, appointment setting, building up of expectations. We went last night to check the sale out before opening. The good news is that the sale is in a large retail area with plenty of room to browse and try on items. The bad news is that dresses still cost quite a bit.

We awarded the sale a 7.5 out of 10 because the items were beautiful, but the prices were still high. A nice selection of gowns, furs, Manolo shoes (the ones I picked up were a size 9) and a few handbags. The cheapest items were separates (skirts & blouses) for $100-$150. We found a few cute short dresses in the $300-$600 range. Everything else was in the $1,000-$3,000 range. This sale is extended till Friday and is by appointment only. You can set yours up by RSVPing here. Photos and prices below. Enjoy!

$30 and $50 Boots at the Ivy Kirzhner Sample Sale

We were so pleasantly surprised at the Ivy Kirzhner sample sale, where all shoes were $30 and all boots $50. This is a brand that sells them for oner $600 typically. At the last sample sale, shoes were still in the $200 range. Here’s what you need to know: all the $30 $50 items are samples, which means they are in size 7. If you are that size – say hello to paradise. If you are a different size, then they have regular collection items that are still over 80% off. All prices and photos below. The sale just started so you have plenty to check out.

Boho Heavy Coats – Nicholas K Sample Sale (not to be confused with Nicholas Kirkwood)

Lovers of behemian style robe-sweaters, sequined coats and sheep-skin berets will find a heaven at the Nicholas K sample sale. We double checked – Nicholas Kirkwood (the glitzy shoe brand) has nothing to do Nicholas K, a NY based brand of wild clothes and accessories. Aside from the sweaters (with sleeves coming out somewhere from the depth of scrunched material), jackets that could double as bath robes and heavy sequined coats – that all cost north of $300, we found a few things we loved: 1. the cashmere-fur throw – perfect gift and sold for $125, furry slippers for $50 and really petrifying cuffs made out of animal skin ($40).

If that stuff excites you, head over to the sale:

The Cutest Cashmere Slippers at the Snowman Sample Sale

Snowman sample sale

Clothingline combined the Cashmere and Snowman sample sales into one and we checked them out on the first day! While items were still pricey – with cashmere sweaters between $60 and $90, the selection of sizes was quite broad (XS-L) and so was the variety. The Snowman coats were all 50% off retail prices, which left them in the $240-$260 range. We are crossing our fingers for markdowns as the sale progresses.
If you want to hit it up, you have till Thursday. Photos with prices below. Enjoy!
