The Rag and Bone Sample Sale is Questionable

By: Jacqueline Munro

After going to this Rag and Bone sample sale, I still can’t decide whether or not I think the discounts are good. But given that this sale is hosted by 260, I’m not surprised. Regardless of that though, I am satisfied by the large selection of merchandise that they have at the sale.

Firstly, I would like to emphasize how annoyed I was going into this sale. It was raining cats and dogs and there was a line of customers waiting to be admitted to the sale. But despite the torrential downpour, the 260 employees would not let anyone in one second before the posted opening time. They really don’t have any regard for their shoppers over there. When I finally got in after being completely soaked though, I was happy with the amount of merchandise they had

available. There was a really good selection of shoes, pants/jeans, and sweaters, but I was expecting there to be more leather jackets; there weren’t any classic styles, only leather bombers. There was one nice suede biker jacket, but that was it. They had sample jeans and shoes for 50 bucks, and they were actually really cute! Most of the womens sample shoes were a size 37, so if you have little feet, hurry over! They also had a ton of awesome hats for the winter and summer, as well as some cute bags. And another thing I noticed is that most of the products came in small sizes; I saw a lot of XS and XXS, but not a lot of M and L.

A lot of the stuff at this sale is selling for around 70% off retail, but not all of the products are discounted that well. Although the prices look really steep on the price list (which they kind of are) relative to the retail prices, they’re not that horrible. Knowing 260 they’ll slash their prices on the final days of the sale, so if you’re willing to wait it out, I’d say do it. Originally on Instagram I rated this sale an 8/10, but after reevaluating I’m giving it a 6/10, and I’m sure you can all tell why. Happy shopping!

The Nancy Gonzalez Sample Sale has Stunning Merchandise

By: Jacqueline Munro

The handbags at the Nancy Gonzalez sample sale are outrageously beautiful, but also outrageously priced. Given that the bags are all made of 100% genuine crocodile, I understand why they are so expensive, but the price tags still hurt my heart a little bit.

At this sample sale, the bags range from 55% to 70% off, which is good. But considering the fact that it is a sample sale, I was hoping for even higher discounts. Maybe I’m being greedy, but a $4,000 bag for 60% off is still way too expensive for me. Overall though, the merchandise is absolutely stunning… literally drool-worthy. There are bags of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and for every occasion, you could imagine. Lots of the styles are amazing for summer, so if you’re looking for a cute (but pricey) bag to carry once the warm weather holds, this is the place to be! They also had adorable shoes including sandals, mules, and pumps, all for good prices! If I had a fat wallet, I would have left with everything.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 7 out of 10. If the prices weren’t so high I would definitely bump it up to an 8 or 9, but I’m not willing to spend so much money at a sample sale. If you’re willing to pay though, and you’re looking for a fancy new bag, definitely head over to this Nancy Gonzalez sample sale.

The Maje Sample Sale is Underwhelming

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Maje sample sale is honestly disappointing. Unless you feel like waiting around to be shoved by rude people sitting through mediocre merchandise, I’d say skip this sale.

At this sample sale, the merchandise is subpar; I honestly feel kind of gypped. The 30-minute line led to high expectations, but they are completely unfulfilled. Aside from a few cute blouses, a nice pair of pumps, and one alluring leather jacket, there isn’t anything worth buying.

Overall I’m giving this sale a 5 out of 10. I’ve seen much better discounts on more expensive merchandise at plenty of sales. It is unsettlingly crowded with rude people, and I cannot stress how underwhelming the selection of products really is. Don’t bother going to this 260 sample sale.

Get Your Diesel Denim toDay: The Diesel Sample Sale

Diesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample SaleDiesel Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

Tried to make a three-word alliteration up there, but probably not as successful. What was actually successful was the Diesel sample sale hosted by 260 Sample Sale. Diesel, famous for their denim, brought items for men and women for you to shop. We noticed all merchandise was organized by color, which not only makes it appealing to the eye (#Aesthetic) but also easy to shop. Diesel has more of an edgy vibe. However, you can still shop for dresses, just expect more of a rocker look over romantic.

We rated the Diesel sample sale an 8 out of 10. Discounts were huge and there was an array of merchandise. You can also find lots of leather goods perfect for this transitional season. Accessories were also largely represented at the Diesel sample sale. Shoes, not so much. We were expecting a bit more.  Get out there and grab that leather jacket and pair it with the perfect jeans at the Diesel sample sale. Happy shopping!

The Oscar de la Renta sample sale came to us this week at 260’s SoHo location. In terms of merchandise, it did not disappoint. The sale was a perfect shopping opportunity to stock up on work outfits, casual outfits, black tie, furs, shoes, and even something for the kiddies. And, calling all brides, you can score your very own Oscar de la Renta wedding gown for the big day.

We rated the Oscar de la Renta sample sale a 6 out of 10. While merchandise was on point, the prices were not. Now, we know Oscar de la Renta has a high price point, but damn, can they budge just a little?! Anyway, there were a ton of samples and regular stock. The sample sale consisted of mostly smaller sizes, so it was a bit limiting for the general public. Lastly, let’s talk about shoes.  Most of them were samples and were wrecked! What did these models do? Complete a triathlon in them?! I mean some shoes were straight up foot disease waiting to happen, and they had the nerve to charge $89 for all shoes! If you have a black tie event coming up head over to the Oscar de la Renta sample sale. You can snag a beautiful gown that will make you stand out at your next event. Happy shopping!

P.S. At check out mention that you found out about the sale through Shopdrop App. Help us get our name out there! xoxo!

Paul Andrew Sample Sale: Broken Hearts if You’re Not a 37

Paul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample SalePaul Andrew Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The Paul Andrew Sample sale is a match made heaven if you wear a size 37 in shoes. Compared to the other sizes *cough* 38 *cough,* 37 had an entire section devoted to the size. There really wasn’t much of a difference from the last sale. Men felt a bit disappointed with this sale. There were quite a few in line to be the first to grab a pair of Paul Andrew shoes. However, last sale had a better selection.

We rated the Paul Andrew sample sale a 6 out of 10. We would have totally given them a 9 out of 10 easily if they would just add more sizes. This is Paul Andrew’s MO to only have 37s because they put out true samples and very, very little overstock. Some shoes in other sizes were used and in crappy conditions. Those would cost you $50. If you are a size 37 stop by the Paul Andrew and stock up on stilettos for your hot V-day plans. Happy shopping!

Bye, Bye Brooklyn! The Kleinfeld pop sample sale has now entered the infamous “6th borough,” New Jersey. The Kleinfeld sample sale popped up in Mill Creek Mall. The space, already designated for evening gown sales as it is a prom dress store, is the perfect place for a bride to be to browse through thousands of dresses with ease. The location was enormous. We checked it out in the evening, and there was only a hand full of shoppers.

We rated the Kleinfeld pop up sample sale an 8 out of 10. There were a ton of beautiful dresses to match any bride’s style. They also had a range of sizes from small to large. Prices started in the $1,000 range and went up to the $5,000 range. You can also shop vails (in a few colors, including back) and beautiful floral and jeweled headpieces. It is worth crossing water and heading to Jersey for this sale. Secaucus is also very close to the Lincoln Tunnel. Buses from Port Authority will drop you off right in front of the mall. This is the to be if you have a big day coming up. Congratulations, and happy shopping!

One of the Best Sales We’ve Seen in a While: French Connection Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this positive about a sample sale. The French Connection sample sale is conveniently located in Midtown. When I walked in the coat check guys were the most attentive and sweet. After chatting them up, I walked to the back and entered the sale. Men’s was first as you walked in. There was a mid-sized section of coats, tops, bottoms, and even $5  ties! If you have to wear ties for work, you can’t beat that! The next, larger room contained women’s. It was the same deal: tops, bottoms, coats, and dresses. There were so many beautiful pieces, but dresses and skirts really caught my eye. Shoes filled the third and final room.

We rated the French Connection Sample sale a 9 out of 10. Yes, it was that good. The clothing was super cute, and the prices were unbeatable! You can use this sale to fill up your closet or mark everyone off your Christmas list. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. Check out the French Connection sample sale. You won’t regret it!

Beautiful Building, Uneventful Sale: The ALTUZARRA Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Altuzarra sample sale was held on the 14th floor of the Woolworth building down by City Hall. If you’re an NYC architecture nerd like me, you will really appreciate the beautiful interior as you pass through the lobby. Other than that the Altuzarra sample sale was uneventful. The sale felt more like a regular retail boutique rather than a sample sale. The clothing was very pretty as that brand always delivers nice designs. This sale is perfect if you are going for that urban chic look.

We rated the Altuzarra sample sale a 7 out of 10. Pricing was really confusing, and still quite high. There were only a few racks of clothing and a long table with knits and accessories. The best part of the sale was the shoes. They had a large variety of numerous sizes. If you’re a huge fan of the brand, then check it out. (or if you just want an excuse to go inside the Woolworth building) Happy shopping!

Solid Striped x Redone Sample Sale: All Seasons Under One Roof

By: Cristina Martin

Solid Striped and Redone joined together to bring us a fabulous sample sale.  Solid and Striped is all swimsuits and a few bags. Browse through a few racks of one-pieces and several bins of separates. If you are looking for a super cute bathing suit for some fun Insta pics, then this is the sale for you.

On the other hand, if you have the body where you need a bathing suit that has support, then skip this sale. The suits were very colorful and fun! There were also quite a few high-waisted options. This sale is also better if you’re into mixing and matching because you will have to dig to find a matching set.

Not into bathing suits right now? Shop Redone. Redone had racks of denim. You can find jeans and denim skirts and shorts. You can also pick up some cute graphic tees and sweaters. We rated the Solid Striped x Redone sample sale an 8 out of 10. Prices were decent. The space was huge so there was plenty of room to shop and no lines! Check it out and pick up something for now and next summer. Happy shopping!
