Carven Sample Sale

Labor Day Sale Early Access! Receive 30-75% off sitewide with code TAKE30 at LastCall.com. Offer Valid 8/28.

Carven is a brand we all love, so when the Carven sample sale showed up on our feed, we jumped! We had to travel all the way to the west side, beyond the subway, for this one. So, the stakes were high! The room was fairly small but jammed packed with clothing, shoes, and accessories. The Carven sample sale featured both men’s and women’s clothing, however there was no formal changing room. Everything was strikingly beautiful. From coats to dresses, we were impressed. You can shop very simple, elegant pieces to embellished and funky accent pieces. You can definitely shop for any occasion at the Carven sample sale.

We rated the Carven sample sale a 7 out of 10. Carven lost points at pricing. Yes, all the pieces were stunning, but the prices were still just so high. It was a also very confusing. Women’s items were as marked. Items that had prices written on the tag were considered samples. Apparently, these are already marked down $70. Items with the the price written on a colored round sticker are regular stock items. Everything was mixed together, so you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. Men’s items were pretty confusing as well. They had a price list, but that didn’t match what was on the tags. Word of advice, ask a sales associate for accurate pricing.

If you’re down to splurge, the Carven sample sale is worth the visit. Happy shopping!

Fashion KAS New York Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Beautiful Florals at the Kas Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The KAS sample sale features their classic hand-stitched, Indian-inspired prints. They had a variety of options from the traditional tops and bottoms to beach cover-ups and kaftans. There were about 5 or 6 racks with sample sizes 4 and 6. What I didn’t like about the sale was the fact that prices weren’t listed on each item. After I was let in the store, the sales associate explained that prices began at $20, and to ask about specific pricing. Another shopper had a ton of clothing in her hand, and stood there as he assigned prices to each item. As a jaded New Yorker, how can I trust that the $40 shorts I like, aren’t $20 for another shopper. I guess we will never know.

If you’re into patterns and florals, check out the KAS sample sale. You can never have too many pieces that are hand-stitched pieces. Happy shopping!

Hot Brand, Hot Sale The Altuzara Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Altuzarra – one of the hottest brands out there right now. The Altuzarra sample sale is also hot, hot, hot!

Lines were already forming in the early morning hours at this two day sample sale.¬† The line was somewhat long, but it moved fairly fast. You can most likely expect one early tomorrow. Once you’re in, there is plenty of merchandise to choose from. The show room is beautiful, with plenty of space to shop. the staff was just lovely and very attentive.

Most of the merchandise at the Altuzara sample sale is from the current season. #YASSS There were about five racks with items from previous seasons. Previous season items consisted mostly of a few blazers and basic pants. Nothing really special. The prices were also very fair. Check out the Altuzara sample sale tomorrow before it ends! Happy shopping!
