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!

The Karen Miller brand is having it’s second sample sale this year at Clothingline. While I’m not the biggest fan of the brand, I have to admit that prices are quite low. Everything except for the leather items is under $50. There are lots of options for larger sizes (6-12) in clothes and quite a few shoe options as well. The sample sale has clothes for women only – and includes dresses, jackets, tops, cardigans, skirts and pants. A lot of the merchandise is dirty or damaged, so make sure to double check the items before checking out. If you like the British brand, then you still have two days to shop at the sale.
We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the Herve Leger sample sale for women at 260 has the most phenomenal items at crazy discounts. Many items are over 90% off. The bad news is that items are still quite pricey. So here is the rundown: most items are size small, but the selection of dresses is enormous. Embellished and non-embellished band-aid dresses, long and short, beautiful skirts, tops and jackets. No shoes, fragrances or handbags. Collections span current seasons to past. Every item is over $100 except for the bathing suits, which are an amazing $40 (down from $790!!!). The sale opens to the public today so make sure to snag some goodies while they last.

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!

The heavy rain this morning didn’t stop us from exploring the Karen Millen sale at Clothingline. We entered the showroom to find racks upon racks filled with dresses, skirts, pants and tops from the Karen Millen brand. To give you some background, Karen Millen is originally from Britain, and it was created to launch items for fashionable and confident professional women. Today, the brand sells in over 65 countries and has many fans worldwide.
Karen Millen items retail for $350-$600 on their site. So if you like their dresses, the sample sale is a must go. All dresses there were on sale for $75, tops for $25 or $50, depending on the style. Do you get it? For 4 dresses at the sample sale, you can buy one at retail.
Val chose three outfits of different styles and we took photos in each one that are on this post. Our photographer, Ghila Krajzman, made sure to capture the feel of the sale in addition to the looks. In addition to the clothes, there was a wide selection of beautiful shoes, booties and sandals – all for $50. I saw some adorable straw hats ($20), clutches ($25), bags ($50) and scarves ($65).

If you are into futuristic style just like I am, then The Arrivals NYC is the brand to pay attention to. Unlike most of their fashion competitors, The Arrivals weren’t inspired by the runway and did not draw inspiration from fellow shops. Rather, the brand is driven purely by three things: functionality, craft, and individuality.
Using this motto, the designers skipped the brick&mortar part and set out to create a brand that would create wearable pieces and sell them directly to the consumer online – thereby ensuring an honest price. Imagine our excitement when we learned that for a few blissful days, The Arrivals merchandise will be available in a physical retail space at a crazy discount. Yup, The Arrivals NYC brand is holding a sample sale in the last week of its concept pop-up store. Grab your futuristic friend, head down to Soho and then tag us in your pictures!
