Fashion Review Robert Cavalli Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale Sample Sale Review

The Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale: Take Two

By: Cristina Martin 

Two time’s a charm, I guess, for the Roberto Cavalli sample sale. Roberto Cavalli hosted a sample sale just last month at Clothingline. You can read all about how awful that sale was in our full report. This time Soiffer Haskin has taken the Roberto Cavalli burden on and is attempting to rid the merchandise for the brand. Let me tell you, there are clear improvements. Roberto Cavalli is a brand for people who have a flashier taste. (Absolutely nothing wrong with that.) This Roberto Cavalli sample sale had clothing, shoes, and accessories for both the flashy and the subtle dresser. Even some of the flashy items were cute! They had jackets with beautiful beading and patterns. The beautiful beadwork continued onto jeans with unique flower patterns. On the other hand, the horrendous snakeskin outfits were brought from the last sale to haunt us.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli Sample sale a 6 out of 10. They went up three points since the quality and quantity of the merchandise improved.  However, the prices are still very high. I understand that the brand prices in the thousands, but $480 for a Roberto Cavalli jacket is still a bit high in my opinion. Just like the last sale, men make out the best. Men had an array of handsome traditional and non-traditional suits. Men can also browse through sweaters, casual wear, and shoes. There was also a selection of funky pieces, but men’s was definitely tamer. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed at the Roberto Cavalli, but we managed to sneak in some for you all. If you have any questions, please DM us on Instagram (@shopdropapp). Happy shopping!

Move Over Canada Goose the Herno Sample is in Town

Herno Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The first Herno sample sale has hit the streets of Manhattan. Herno is a hot, up and coming Italian outerwear brand. You can find them right next to Canada Goose in Nordstrom. Now you can find them for 70% off in midtown. They had a large selection of both men’s and women’s coats, sweaters, and furs. At 70% off you can score a coat for a few hundred dollars.

The staff was incredibly sweet, and the space was great for shopping. However, you can expect long lines. They are also only accepting credit cards. Ditch your jacket from last year and head over to the Hanro sample sale for a new model. Winter is coming, and they are saying it’s going to be a cold one! Happy shopping!

Reminisce back to Summer at the Jack Rogers Sample Sale

Jack Rogers Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Do you think we can squeeze in a few more days of flipflop use in this rather warm October? I think not. The cold might be here to stay, but you can still head over to the Jack Rogers sample sale and cure that nostalgia with some shopping. Jack Rogers is known for their adorable leather sandals. All shoes were $40. Handbags were also $40 and backpacks were $30. If you purchase 4 or more pairs of shoes you get 50% off your entire order. Not a bad deal! The Jack Rogers sample sale also had the cutest little rain booties. If you like to stand out, then red and yellow are for you. If you’re more into laying low, then definitely go for the beautiful power pink ones.

We rated the Jack Rogers sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. It’s a great sale if you’re a fan of the brand. Good prices and lots of great merchandise. Sizes went from 5 to 11, but there was an abundance in size 7. Additionally, you can look through a few bins of clothing for $5, $25, and $45 to see if something suits your fancy. We do have to report that they were having an issue with their credit card machine. Being that the sale is credit card only, they were taking down your credit card information to then charge you later. They did promise to destroy all credit card information once the transaction has been processed. Happy shopping!

Inside the Lanvin Sample Sale

Lanvin Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The private Lanvin sample sale officially kicked off on Sunday. Since it is a private sample sale you need an invitation to attend. Luckily, we made it inside to report back to you.

The Lanvin sample sale is held in a tiny space, packed with women’s and men’s clothing, accessories, shoes, and people. Prices were incredible! Everything was 80% off with the exception of the gowns which were at 90% off. That is incredible for Lanvin. I loved the women’s jackets and blazers. They were gorgeous! Men’s suits were also stunning. They even received archival pieces directly from France! Accessories consisted mostly of scarves for women and bow ties for men. They also had a pretty large selection of shoes. However, size 38 was going fast! People were inquiring about handbags. According to the sales associate they all went the first day, and they will be expecting a new shipment later this week. So… open to the public any time soon??? We don’t know just yet, but when we do, you will be the first to know. Happy shopping!

It’s a Thirty Seven Heaven at the Paul Andrew Sample Sale

paul andrew sample sale

By: Cristina Martin 

We had the opportunity to check out the Paul Andrew sample sale a day before it opened. Let me tell you, If you are a size 37, (roughly 7 in a U.S.) you hit the jackpot! Paul Andrew had a mix of samples, shoes from previous seasons, and shoes that never went to production. You are super lucky if you got to snag a one of a kind pair of Paul Andrew shoes. Prices started at $25 and went up to $250. However, there weren’t many in the $25 price point. We found only two damaged pairs for $25. Boots were mostly at the $250. Flats and heels were between $50 and $150. If you have an extra special event coming up, then you can browse through two tables of beautiful jeweled evening shoes. Men, we didn’t forget about you! (But Paul Andrew is) They are no longer making men’s shoes. Men can grab most shoes for $100!

We also loved the Paul Andrew showroom.  It is tucked away on 58th St. between Columbus Circle and the Plaza in a residential building. Very Gossip Girl-esque! In conclusion, you have two days to shop the Paul Andrew sample sale. We recommend you go the first day because inventory is limited, and they are not restocking. Happy shopping!

It’s a Full Moon at the Maje Sample Sale

Maje Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Don’t get me wrong, the Maje sample sale was actually pretty good, but it was a madhouse in there! Let’s chat about the sale first, and then we will get to the experience.

We rated the Maje sample sale an 8 out of 10. They had a ton of merchandise, and from what it looked like, there was more downstairs. You should have no problem finding your size. The clothing was also very cute. I wanted to leave there with almost everything! You can shop for every season as well. Coats and sweaters for fall/winter, and dresses and skirts for spring/summer. All beautiful! It gets a little tricky when it comes to pricing. The percentage off was actually pretty good! Most items that were retail $300 – $400 were selling for under $100. You can skip the fur coats. Yes, they went from slightly over $1,000 to $495, but you’re paying over $500 (after tax) for fur coats that are just okay. There are better fur sample sales out there, just hold tight. Mini skirts were another thing to skip. They were all SO cute! However, not so well priced. Pants were priced at $55 (more material), and skirts were priced at $75 (less material). You’re not getting the best bang for your buck. Shorts were also priced the same as pants which require less material than pants as well. Some food for thought.

I don’t know what is going on today, but shoppers were C R A Z Y! As usual, there was a line outside. Even though this wasn’t an iconic, insane 260 line, it must have still driven people nuts. Inside shoppers were pushing and shoving, and no one was apologizing to each other. I must have gotten hit several times. Shoppers were very aggressive when going through the clothing. At one point the 260 staff had to make an announcement to the shoppers reminding them that this is luxury fashion, and asking them not to throw things on the floor. They also had to ask shoppers to put items back in their original location. WOW… I don’t know if there’s a full moon coming up or what.

The Maje sample sale is definitely worth checking out. If you’re not dying for Maje right this second, then wait until the crowds die down a bit and for price reductions. Happy shopping, and may the odds ever be in your favor.

Ironically No Lines at The Line Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Since everyone and their mother flocked to the LXR and Co sample sale, The Line sample sale had… no line. The Line had absolutely beautiful pieces from various designers. You can shop from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana. If you were a big Protagonist fan, then you were in luck. Protagonist filled the racks. You can also shop home, accessories, books, and shoes.

We rated The Line sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The selection was magnificent and the space wasn’t that crowded. Prices were a bit high, but with good markdowns from 70% – 75%. The Line sample sale scored most of their points in the fantastic selection of merchandise. Opening day of The Line sample sale was the same day that NYC got hurricane Florance rain. The 260 staff had the nerve to kick people out in the pouring rain. Shoppers just wanted to wait a little bit until it passed. The 260 staff, instead of asking everyone nicely to not block the door, decided to yell at everyone to leave because they have umbrellas. In that monsoon, an umbrella will not help much. However, as usual, that’s 260 being their usual rude selves. Happy shopping!
