Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review The Row

Designer Goods at Designer Prices at The Row

The Row Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Sample Sales are always a great place to get designer items at a major discount, which can help those who can’t always afford to shop designer. These discounts were not to be found at The Row sample sale. Even with an apparent discount of 70% off all Ready to Wear, handbags, and footwear, I could not find anything under $500. The Row is the clothing line of famed twins, Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. The pair are known for their high fashion taste and their collection does not disappoint in that facet. The sale was organized by size and item. Racks with sizes XS, S, M, and L lined the lines with tables of sweaters, bags, and shoes in the middle and front. The pieces were understated and in muted colors, ranging from blacks, grays, blues, whites, and creams.

We rated this sale a 5 out of 10. While there was a wide selection, the pieces were still extremely expensive and nothing stood out as exceptional. It was also interesting to note that the sale was empty, which hopefully goes as a sign that the prices were not good enough to attempt major crowds. The sale also did not allow photos, which might have made it difficult to shop for someone else.

Just in Time for Fall: The White and Warren Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

We can all agree this fall has been very temperamental. One day you’re in a winter coat, and the next you’re in a tee and a cardigan. Stock up for this crazy fall weather (and probably more to come) at the White and Warren sample sale. The White and Warren sample sale has the coziest cashmere clothing that will keep you warm on the chilly days but won’t suffocate you on the warm days. Their cashmere tees are perfect for layering on those in-between days. My favorite had to be the cashmere shirt and pant set. I swear, I will never leave my sofa with that on!

We rated the White and Warren sample sale a 7.5 out of 10. The merchandise was very cute! It was well stocked, but there wasn’t a ton in there. Two days should be good for this sale. They will be restocking the wraps/blankets, but it is unclear for other items. Additionally, the sale was pretty well priced. It was unclear what was a sample and what was stock, which in turn make the pricing a little hazy. Stock up on cozy cashmere tops, bottoms, sweaters, and accessories this fall! Happy shopping!

The Early Bird Gets the Worm at the Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

Scotch and Soda Sample Sale

By Melanie Capruso

Loyal ShopDroppers know the importance of being early to sample sales, so we weren’t surprised to see that the inventory at the Scotch and Soda sample sale was slightly picked over. There were still racks left in the plenty of clothes, but it was clear that the early morning crowd had taken the best picks.

We gave the Scotch and Soda sample sale a 7 out of 10. The show room was very large and the staff was extremely friendly. Pricing was decent, but there was limited sizing for men and for women it was the same sizing across the board. The samples seemed to be geared toward early spring weather.

Markups at the Karen Millen Sample Sale??

karen millen sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

Today we stopped by the Karen Miller sample sale at Clothingline. When I first walked in I was immediately impressed! There was plenty of merchandise, which was organized by size. While most of the inventory was quite summery, there was plenty of pants, skirts, and tops which could make the transition from late summer to fall and winter. I did notice some minor damages on a few white dresses, but there were other pieces of the same style.

It was only when I started looking at the more specialty pieces that I started to notice some discrepancies in prices. I had found this beautiful (faux) fur vest that was the last one. While all the signs said that outerwear was $150, the original sales tag from Bloomingdales showed the last selling price of the jacket was $124.99. Okay, so I thought it must have been a mistake. So I found someone who worked at Clothingline and asked them to let me know how much the item would cost, the tag price or the sign price. To my shock, I was told that the vest would be $150 despite to tag price. I understand that for the ease of selling the merchandise, all styles are generally the same price, but for them to sell a piece for $26 more than it was being sold before is insane.

We rated the Karen Millen sample sale at Clothingline an 8 out of 10. While generally the sale seemed to have great deals and plenty of inventory, the discrepancy in prices was ridiculous.
