Shelly and Renee sales brings us another sophisticated sample sale with exquisite Pamella Roland gowns. If you have a special black tie event, you can score a beautiful embellished gown at the Pamella Roland sample sale. Higher-end sample sale prices are always technically high. However, we felt that the prices were fair for the merchandise available. Gowns were around $600, and gowns with crazy beading went for about $1,600.
The selection was incredible. There wasn’t a ton of merchandise, but all items were beautiful. They also had a variety of sizes. Like we always say – quality not quantity. Treat yourself at the Pamella Roland sample sale, and then treat yourself to a night out on the town

Today we wondered downtown to 150 Greene Street to try and checkout the highly covetedReformation Sample Sale,but sadly we were let down. We had to stand in the blazing, boiling, burning heat for hours. Clothing by Reformation is seen all over Instagram, featured by renowned bloggers such as Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat and Jacey Duprie of DamselinDior and those alike.
As we stood on Greene street dying a slow and very warm death, we pondered the question. Is the Reformation Sample Sale worth it? After consulting with shoppers leaving, philosophers thinking and our inner selves, we have arrived at the definitive conclusion – absolutely not. Yes, the clothing is very cute, extremely chic and seen all over social media. No one, not even our worst enemies should be forced to stand in boiling heat, unless they’re at the beach getting a nice tan with a margarita in hand. As you probably followed from our Instagram stories, Zara and Reformation make merchandise that are extremely similar in pattern, color and style. The best perk is that Zara is way cheaper.
We rated the Reformation Sample Sale a 3 out of 10. You would think based on the line that wrapped around the block, that they were giving away free puppies and ice cream. But no: no puppies, no ice cream. If you don’t have time to melt on the sidewalks of NYC, we recommend you go to Zara and check out their merchandise. Even better, sit on your couch, pour yourself a nice bloody glass of rosé and shop online!
