Summer is back at the Parker sample sale. There are so many casual and evening dresses to choose from in their large, and chic midtown showroom. If you have a bunch of weddings coming up, this is the sale for you. The most expensive dresses were evening gowns at $180! We can’t even believe it. Parker had a mix of samples and regular stock. Dresses weren’t the only thing on the menu; you can also shop tops, bottoms, jumpsuits, rompers, outerwear, and coverups. Most of the sample were in great condition and $50 or under.
We rated this sample sale an 8 out of 10. Merchandise was excellent: plenty of options and very beautiful pieces! Prices were also very fair. Most items are summer pieces, so you do have to wait until next year to sport it. On the other hand, with the holidays coming up you can stock up on dresses. Happy shopping!

Your entire life you hear you mom say either, “It’s Memorial Day. We can now wear white pants,” or “It’s Labor Day. Gotta put the white pants away.” Well this weekend we face the latter. Many blogs and magazines promote white pants or boots as a favorite during the winter months. So who do we listen to? Mom or the fashion gurus? Let’s investigate a bit further.
After the Civil War there was a rise in nouveau riche. Those who belonged to old money wanted to be differentiated from the nouveau riche since they were considered low class. Old money women set fashion rules within their circle. This way those who didn’t follow were easily identifiable as nouveau riche. Wearing white only during summer months was one of the many rules put in place. In 1894, Labor Day was officially incorporated as a holiday, and society adopted it as the unofficial end of summer.
Naturally, there were society women who told the rule-making society women where they can put their rules. Surprisingly, Coco Chanel was a fashion rebel and wore white all year around. However, by the 1950’s every women’s magazine that mattered scholded women on the fact that white was worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Period.
So it’s 2018, what do we do now? Well, if ask my mother, the answer is a very strict ‘no.’ And how dare you for asking. On the other hand, many women’s (and men’s) publications are telling us to break free from those musty, old rules, and embrace white 365 days a year. I guess you need to decide how traditional you are. If you embrace tradition, then hang up the white pants after this weekend. If you are a fashion rebel, we’ll be eying your Instagram to see just how you pull it off. Hey, if Coco Chanel wore white all year around. That’s all I’m saying.
I hate to be the one to break it to you ladies and gentlemen, but summer is officially almost over. Que the violins. Just because sweater weather is on the horizon, doesn’t mean that we start to slack off! Next summer is only a mere 9 months away, get started now on that bikini bod! Find motivation to get fit at the Gottex sample sale. They have plenty of workout gear to get you started looking fab!
The Gottex sample sale also had amazing prices. Nothing was above $20. However, beware of their strict cash only policy. The Gottex sample sale was nicely stocked, and our sources say they will be restocking. The staff was also very sweet and attentive. Next time you’re in midtown stop by the Gottex sample sale. We’ll be looking out for the fitinspo Instagram pics. Happy shopping!

Theory has been having sales left and right the past six months. I guess it took them leaving 260 Sample Sales to finally becoming a decent sale. This time Theory partnered up with Helmut Lang and found a new home at Clothing Line. We are finally seeing actual sample sale prices at this Theory x Helmut Lang sample sale. Discounts were between 40% – 80% off. Traditionally at Theory sales, prices are still through the roof. All shoes were usually over $100, but this time the most expensive shoe was $75.
The selection was excellent! They even had a small men’s section. Although Clothing Line’s space is a little dingy, you definitely have space to shop comfortably. There is enough stock for both summer and winter shopping. Even though you don’t want to think about coats in the middle of July, it doesn’t hurt to grab one now at these prices. Unfortunately, the Theory x Helmut Lang sample sale is a few day, it’s deff worth checking out. Let us know what you think. Happy shopping!

Today we had the chance to stop by the Karen Millen Sample Sale at 261 West 36th Street. If you are in need of a bright pop of color in your closet this summer, the Karen Millen Sample Sale has everything you need – for cheap!
The Karen Millen Sample Sale boats racks organized by size and filled with colorful dresses, tops and skirts. There was merchandise in nearly every shade of the rainbow including Gen Z Yellow to Millennial Pink. A majority of the merchandise still had their original tags from Bloomingdales on them! They also had a decent selection of blazers and outerwear. There was a small selection of shoes as well, a majority of them were heels.
We rated the Karen Millen Sample Sale a 7 out of 10. There was a large selection of merchandise in variety of colors but it was mostly formal workwear and evening. The prices were really good on the dresses, pants and tops but more expensive on outerwear and blazers. The shoes were definitely the best deal they offered, buying 1 pair for 30$ and 2 pairs for 50$! If you are in need for something bright in fun, we recommend you take a look!
I’m not sure if the summer season and the sample sale gods are friends or they’re on the love/hate battlefield, but I’m having a huge dilemma. That is? I don’t have enough weekends left to wear these color block pieces I’m obsessing over at the JADE Swim Sample sale, located at the Chelsea Market (15th street and 9th ave). Starting today, Wednesday August 30th (10:30AM—7:00PM) — Sunday September 3rd 2017 (10:30AM-5:00PM) I suggest you walk over there if possible while reading, its a promised good sale, guaranteed and the atmosphere is so fun! Chelsea Market is the ultimate playground to shop in!
Lets start with our shopper PQQ- price, quality and quantity. The price list, super straight forward. Separate pieces are $29 and $59 for a one piece. If we were to compare retail prices? Their one-side Apex swimsuit’s retail price dives into the deep side of the sea, at $198, but now? $59! All yours! The Micro one-piece retails for $220 and the Chain Reaction V Neck one-piece, $150. Now, $59 for all! Also, the separate pieces ( I suggest mix & match) range in retail price from $75-110, and now selling out at this sample sale for? $29 !!! Insanity. I could not be more happy writing this to all of our shoppers!
Ultimate steal, right? I cannot wait for you to have first dibs. Even though its preferred not to try on the swim, there are dressing rooms in the back and I suggest putting it over undergarments to make sure you’re getting your right size! There is plenty in stock for all sizes, the white suits are seemingly running low, however every other color is in attendance. Also, the quality is undeniably beautiful, I mean we all know JADE swimwear as one of the hottest fashion competitors in the industry rated highly by InStyle Magazine. Trust us, or trust that toned gut you’ve been working out all summer, this sale is amazing!
Sizes run from Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large but it did look like they’re made smaller than average. The color palette that you’ll see is beyond perfection. The ocean blue, the strawberry red, the sand tan. (yes I’m making these names up, but i promise you’ll envision this exact color from this fun description) Then you have your super cool, “This is me not trying, I’m an natural” collection giving you LIFE with our favorite core colors, matte black, bright white and a really moss olive that if you ever get stranded on an island, you’ll be so in-tune with the color of nature.
What I love most are the styles, the sharp cuts that make an edgy yet curvy look under the sun. I know, groundbreaking!
