The Wolford Sample Sale – What’s The Price to Pay for Chic Bodysuits?

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Wolford Sample Sale is just too pricey. Aside from the extremely unwelcoming staff and the disappointing discounts, the disorganization of the mediocre merchandise was stressful.

The sale is mostly is cash only with the exception of two racks of credit card only items. But regardless, the selection of clothing is just bad. Other than some of the tights and bras, there is nothing I would even consider buying. The retail prices are completely outrageous to begin with so it is no surprise that the sample sale is a rip off too. They did have two boxes of damaged items selling for $10 or $5 dollars. But who wants damaged tights? Not me!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5/10. To be honest, that’s too generous, but I’m feeling nice today. Don’t bother going to this sale unless you want to feel judged by the employees and leave empty handed.

Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Sample Sale – Taste the Rainbow

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had an opportunity to preview the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale by Stacey Bendet on 260 Fifth Avenue. Spotted on the many racks of clothing were fresh floral prints, funky paisleys and cool color blocking. All the racks were organized by size then subdivided into different clothing categories. Clothing in nearly every color could be found. The sale featured lots of bright colored blazers, mini dresses and skirts. There were only three racks of sample pieces, which were picked through very quickly. While there was a huge variety of shoes, bags and sunglasses. If you have any need for a killer colored pantsuit (trick question – we all need one) or some quirky cocktail dresses, you should head over to check it out.

Overall we gave the Alice and Olivia Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. While we were disappointed with the pricing on a lot of the merchandise, there were some steals to be found – especially on the leather goodies. We recommend you stop by and pear at all the rainbow colored merchandise!

Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale – Is It Overhyped?

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale all the way over in Brooklyn. This was the first time that this sale has happened since 2016. Everybody is dying to know if the Barneys Designer Warehouse Sale is worth the hype and we now have the insider scoop.

First off, the sale is held in Brooklyn so you’re gonna plan accordingly. While I was first expecting a mob scene, it was actually not that busy. They have designer clothing ranging from IRO to Stella McCartney and Prada plus everything in between. The merchandise is organized by size and type and the staff is very helpful. The pricing on most items is good, but then again a $2,000 dress for $450 is still expensive. Secondly, there are no shoes and accessories. Say what? Yes, let me repeat myself, there are no shoes and accessories at this sale. As well there are no dressing rooms so you have to try on your finds in plain sight.

We rated this sale a 7 out of 10. They have amazing high end designer merchandise, you just have to have the patience to dig through the racks. If you are hunting for a nice Paco Robanne dress or a Valentino matching set, you should look no further.

By: Ashley Randall

Chaser Brand Sample Sale – Comfy Staples For That Rainy Day

By Ashley Randall 

The Chaser Brand Sample Sale featured all your cosy classics for the perfect chill day. The prices ranged from $5 to $50 dollars. Among the many plain tanks and graphic band tees, there were also some nice floral and pinstripe dresses. The room was fairly organized allowing for easy browsing of all the merchandise. There was also a rack of swimwear, just in time to show off at the beach but beware because the sizing was pretty limited! The sale had another rack for children, featuring easy tees for boys and funky ruffled sweats for girls. Whether you are in need of a snuggly tee shirt or a nice printed linen jumpsuit, the Chaser Brand Sample Sale has everything in between. The discounts were pretty good, in comparison the graphic tees sell for around $70 retail!

Overall, we gave this sale a 6.5/10. The pricing is very decent but the selection of merchandise is limited to lounge wear and a couple of dresses/jumpsuits. If you are in need of any lounge wear then look no further!

The John Varvatos Sample Sale has Great Pricing

By: Jacqueline Munro

The selection of merchandise at the John Varvatos sample sale is small but the discounts are big! Unless you can’t handle the heat, I think it might be a good sale to hit up; but be warned, it is blistering hot in the showroom.

At this sample sale, the selection is limited but still impressive. If you wear a size medium on top, you’ll hit the jackpot; there are lots of options here for you. But if you’re any other size you might strike out. At the sale, there are a lot of stylish jackets (in a variety of styles ranging from blazers to leather) and the graphic tees are really cool and soft (comfort is key). The sweaters look extremely comfy too; if you’re able to buy something knowing you can’t wear it for an entire season, I admire your strength. There is a decent selection of shoes but they only have sizes 10 or 11. If you’re in need of work shoes but you don’t like the typical designer styles you might be able to find something you like here. **Calling all stylish commuters:** there is also a wall of backpacks which are all 80% off! Most importantly though, all of the discounts here are steep, which we love to see! It’s not every day that you see good sample sale pricing!

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7/10. I wish they had more merchandise and a wider variety of sizes, but the pricing is undeniably good. So if you have the time to check out this sale and you are in dire need of contemporary men’s clothing I’d say it is worth going to. But if you faint in there, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Good luck, shoppers!
