Dennis Basso-so Deals

This Dennis Basso sale features women’s winter wear at marked down prices. Discounts vary item by item. There are furs, evening gowns, dresses, scarves, hats, and more. 

Let me start off by saying that the merchandise is beyond amazing. The furs are so stunning and came in a wide variety of colors and styles. The gowns are luxe and equally gorgeous. The sizes of the gowns ranged from sizes 0–14! This sale was definitely a hard one to review because while I was there, it took every ounce of willpower I have to not to take everything home.

Furs and evening gowns are usually investment pieces, so high prices are to be expected. However, there are DEFINITELY better deals to be found. 

The space is huge and well organized, so shout out to Soiffer Haskin for such consistent performances. Besides having to give proof of ID at the entrance (extreme, much?) this sale was a breeze. The staff was sweet and helpful. Clothing is separated by item type and size.

If you’re a big fan of the brand and willing to splurge, this might be the sale for you. All sales are final. I give this sale a 3/10 because I was disappointed by the high high prices.

Shop Til’ You Drop at The 375 Sale

TIS’ the season for luxury for less… I got myself to the LES to scout out what the fuss was at the 375 showroom sale… if your budget is high enough it’s definitely something to write home about. Moncler at 30% off. Dior at 35% off. Off white, Moose Knuckles and Louboutin all at a discounted price. Well ladies and gents here’s what’s I think: A) I need a sugar daddy. B) if you’re looking for those brands this was definitely the place to be! I haven’t seen Louboutin this cheap since the dinosaurs. It’s definitely a great gift spot for a loved one—but must be a true love to get yourself to 36 Ludlow Street. Sale will be going on until Tuesday.

ELEVENty sample sale: you can find even more than ELEVEN pieces here!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Eleventy sample sale had A TON of clothing for both men and women, at amazing prices. For starters, the space was fairly large and not crowded, which made the shopping experience enjoyable. The staff was also extremely sweet and very helpful. The room was divided between the men and women, and each side had endless amounts of options and sizes. For the women, there were very cute and warm sweaters, jackets, pants, dresses, bags, shoes and scarves. For the men, there were A LOT of suits, dress shirts, jackets, belts, ties, and shoes. Everything was set up so organized, and it was very easy to shop and find what you are looking for.

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing went as follows: accessories went from around $25-$89, shirts/ pants/ shoes were $109, and coats $199-$499. Everything was reasonably priced, and the clothing looked in excellent shape. I noticed that there were more shoes and coats options for the men, but more sweaters and pants for the women. There were a lot of different sizes and multiples of each item. There were great puffers and coats for the winter, and very warm sweaters as well. It did not look as if the sale was going to run out of any merchandise anytime soon!

Rate: 8/10 A LOT of great finds, sweet staff, fun environment, and a ton of accessories for the winter.

Rosie Assoulin: 75% off, yet still too expensive

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Rosie Assoulin sample sale was very expensive, and therefore not worth a trip. They had gorgeous pieces, but still not affordable. There were casual beach dresses that were now $395- at first glance I thought I had accidentally mistaken it for the original retail price…not the sample sale price! The sale had a lot of merchandise. There were a ton of racks filled with clothing, and everything was very organized (there were multiple pieces and sizes of each item). The sale had a small and messy table in the back that was filled with bags; The bags looked as if they were made of straw and would fall apart the next day.

Merchandise/ pricing: The space had different racks throughout the room that were labeled $195, $295, $395, $495+. There were 3 hats left, and 10-15 bags left ($175 each). I saw really pretty blue high low dresses, and a ton of plaid dresses as well. The plaid dresses were great because they had a dual purpose: they could be cute for work and for dinner afterwards (plaid dresses were $295). Rosie Assoulin sample sale had a ton of stripes throughout the strore; there were striped dresses, stripped shirts, and stripped pants. There was a table in the middle of the room with a lot of “I love NY” hoodies which looked both comfortable and cozy. In terms of accessories, there were a bunch of shoes left (went from around $100-$195)- in shades blue, red, nude, and black.

Rate: 4/10 Great pieces, but too expensive and just simply not worth it.

You Need to go to the Jonathan Simkhai Sale!!

By: Eve Orbach

Guys, seriously, Get. There. ASAP! As soon as you finish reading this— heck, go right now, while you read this. (just make sure to look both ways before crossing 😉 The Jonathan Simkhai sample sale was a total hit! Jonathan Simkhai is famous for making beautiful, detailed dresses and at this sale there were many great ones to choose from. Styles of dresses ranged from casual everyday pieces to stunning floor length gowns. Many of the dresses were $195, which is a great deal for a couture dress. I even was able to find an adorable summery number for just $85. The prices of the gowns varied, but there were so many stunning ones. 

Women’s dresses, sweaters, denim, pants, jackets, and tops were arranged by size and category. It was very well organized and that made it a pleasure to shop at. There was also a wide variety of items available for children ranging from infants up to teenagers.  

Some of the best deals include jeans for $65, sweaters for $50, swimwear for $20, and children’s t-shirts for $25. 

There were no lines to get in. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Cash and credit cards accepted. All sales are final. 

I give this sale a 9/10! There were plenty of styles and categories of items available. I left the sale with some great items that I can’t wait to wear. (Another fun bonus of the sale— there were Kenzo items for children and teens. I was even able to get some holiday presents for my younger siblings. $20 for a Kenzo hat? Unreal!)

Lots to buy at the Alice and Olivia sample sale

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Alice and Olivia sample sale set up was organized well; most of the items were categorized by both size and item. There were racks labeled with all of the sizes which made it very easy to shop. There were also racks that were categorized by item: coats (blazers, fur, etc.), gowns, short dresses, jeans, and skirts. The entire set up was very neat and orderly. There were many customers shopping, and it looked as if items were selling out fast. All of the shoe sections were organized. Everything was laid out nicely. There were a few tables of bags, glasses, and scarves. Except for the sample rack, where people were fighting for their lives, everything was organized and relatively easy to get to.

Merchandise/pricing: The prices at the Alice & Olivia sample sale were discounted but not enough for my liking: all clothing items (not including the samples) were $39-$309, sample items $29-$129, accessories $29-$149, and shoes $69-$169. For example, a dress that retailed for $440 was now $199, pants were down from $995 to $289, and a teddy coat that once cost $550 was now selling for $269. There were many different colors of coats- both fur and regular. There were fur coats in bright colors (hot pink and rainbow variations.) We spotted many pairs of jeans and fancy pants, short and long skirts, long sleeved tops and sweaters, short and long dresses, shoes and accessories. There were a lot of shoes: booties, tall boots, low boots, and heels. There were many pairs of sunglasses, scarves, bags, and tots. There were also 6 different pairs of glasses to choose from: shades brown, clear, black, and white!

This sample sale has a lot of merchandise & it’s going fast! There was a line out the door hours before opening…

Rate: 9/10 AMAZING pieces, endless options, beautiful gowns, and warm coats! Alice and Olivia is a great sample sale although a bit pricey, and is definitely worth going to.

Fall is Coming – The Karolina Zmarlak Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had a chance to stop by the Karolina Zmarlak Sample Sale. The sale featured tons of versatile fall pieces including turtle necks, long sleeve dresses and reversible shearling coats. While the merchandise is completely stunning, the prices are still a little high for our liking. While our ShopDrop users will get an extra 10% off when mentioning our name (oh yeaaaa). August is quickly coming to a close, so you better start stocking up on these fall pieces. We cannot wait for sweater season and we recommend you stop by the sale!

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. Carolina Zmarlak had beautiful pieces with unbelievable quality but they will come at a higher price point.

Philosophy Designer Outlet Sale – Work Women Chic!

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to checkout the Philosophy Designer Outlet Sale in midtown. The sale had a variety of designers including Philosophy, T TAHARI and Catherine Malandrino. 

The sale is extremely organized and run by an amazing staff which are ready to help you right when you walk in the door! While we expected the sale to feature lots of merchandise from Philosophy we were disappointed to find out that there was a limited selection. There was tons of T TAHARI dresses and tops as well as a variety of pieces from Catherine Malandrino. There is a large selection of work appropriate clothing at a discounted price.

Overall we rated the sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a huge variety of clothing, the pricing was not great. If you are in need of any work chic clothing that will both be appropriate and impress the office, you should stop by!

La Perla Sample Sale – What Do You Mean There Are No Dressing Rooms?

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had a chance to get a preview of the La Perla Sample Sale happening at 260 fifth avenue. The La Perla Sample Sale opens tomorrow morning, so if you are in need of some new lingerie for your lover, we recommend you take a look.

The sale featured tons of swimwear, bustiers/garters and classic lingerie. There was a large selection of swimwear, including lots of tops, bottoms and one pieces. While the selection of ready to wear was not great, but if you had the patience to dig through there were some hidden gems. There was a small collection of mens as well as shoes for woman.

Overall we rated the sale a 6 out of 10. First off, the fact that there are no dressing rooms is ridiculous. How are you supposed to buy a bathing suit, dress or bra without trying it on?! The selection of ready to wear was meh and the pricing on everything was still high.

Mignonne Gavigan Sample Sale – Statement Everything

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the chance to stop by the Mignonne Gavigan Sample Sale at 401 Broadway. The sample sale is hosted in the brands showroom so be warned that it is a cramped space. The jewelry is very extra, to say the least. The earrings come in various bright colors with lots of feathers, tassels and jewels. While we were disappointed with some of the pricing of the earrings. The classic “Madeline Beaded” earrings were discounted from $225 to $100, but there were tons of other options for under $50! The Mignonne Gavigan merchandise is beautifully crafted and will most definitely make a statement when you wear there pieces.

Overall we rated the sale a 7 out of 10. The pricing was still high but there was a lot of good accessories. If you are looking for some earrings, necklaces and accessories that are gonna make people say wow, you should stop by!
