This Might Be the Best Prive Sample Sale Yet

I generally have a lukewarm feeling about the Prive sample sales, which take place at Chelsea Market. Most of the time, the atmosphere is great, the place is well lit, the staff nice. The pricing is not the cheapest but it’s not horrible either, and brands are contemporary to high-end.

Imagine how excited I was today when I walked into the sale to find 2 racks of Versace hoodies and t-shirts. Granted, they were for men – but still. Versace?! Then there were beautiful Derek Lam coats – the puffers with the fur collars selling for $350. We loved them. And there were some Elizabeth and James coat selling for $59! That was my favorite item of the night.

Other brands with awesome selections were Vince (for tees, shirts  and shoes for women), Milly (kids, adults, dresses, skirts, sweaters and pants), Elizabeth and James (blazers, dresses and coats). All in all, this is a great sale for some staple sweaters. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Peace.

Classy and Funky Pieces at the MB Sample Sale for Men.

By Melanie Capruso

Today we braved the potential thunderstorms to stop by Clothingline’s MB Sample sale for Men. The sale featured different designers like Prada, Versace, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabana, Roberto Cavalli, and Tod’s. The largest selection was in shoes. There were four different tables all featuring shoes in different sizes. The shoes was a mix of your classic, standard loafers and dress shoes with some WILD animal print high top sneakers and blue Prada sandals (check out the pictures below, the shoes need to be seen…). Also, if you don’t see one in your size, check below the table as there is more. In the back of the sale there were a mix of different shirts. There were Roberto Cavalli polos and graphic tees and boxes upon boxes of Versace dress shirts all $35. 

We rated this sale a 6 out of 10 because while it was empty of people and full of pieces, the prices were still pretty high for all the shoes.

The Cure to Met Gala FOMO: Rating The Night’s Looks, and How to Shop Them

By: Cristina Martin 

Versace stole the show at this year’s Met Gala. The brand dressed numerous celebrities in Versace’s chicest Sunday School evening wear, fitting the theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The Met Gala, dubbed the “Super Bowl of Fashion,” is the perfect (and usually the only) excuse to go completely extra with your outfit. I always praise those who commit to the theme and give it 110%.

Below are the best and not so best looks from fashion’s most famous evening. If you were sitting on your sofa last night wishing you were there, or lusting to own a fabulous piece from one of these designers, I’ll let you know which Met Gala designer runs sample sales. You’re welcome.

The Kings and Queens of Met Gala 2018: 
Met Gala Royalty that committed to the Catholic theme.

Best Dressed Queen: Blake Lively in Versace and Christian Louboutin.
There was a huge Versace sale this year, and we are keeping our fingers crossed for another one next year. Christian Louboutin has sample sales, but they are almost impossible to get in to unless you work for the company or know someone who does.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Couple: Jeremy Scott and Cardi B wearing Moschino
Global Fashions hosted a Moschino sample sale recently, with mixed reviews.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Dressed King: Chadwick Boseman wearing Versace 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honorable Mentions: 

Sarah Jessica Parker: This Met Gala Queen NEVER disappoints. Dolce & Gabbana and Jennifer Fisher dressed her this year. We are still praying for a D&G sale… Hopefully our prayers will be answered soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nicki Minaj dressed as the devil by Oscar de la Renta and Tiffany & Co. The Oscar de la Renta sample sale just passed, and happens every year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jennifer Lopez: New York’s “Jenny from the Block,” is strutting down the red carpet with a Balmain dress and Jimmy Choo accessories. The cross on Jlo’s dress can be found on Anna Wintour’s first Vogue cover. Nice touch!  A Balmain sample sale is also in our prayers, but you can shop the divine Jimmy Choo sample sale every spring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sinful Looks That Had Me Asleep at the Altar:
These celebs did not follow the theme and were just plain BORING!

Worst Dressed: Jaden Smith in Louis Vuitton
Jaden, I guess thinks he’s too cool to to wear something crazy. Not only did he not follow the theme, he looks like he’s going to grab some lunch on his way to  his next meeting. You’re also that self-absorbed that you have to carry around your gold record? This is the ultimate Met Gala sin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Worst Couple: The Olsen twins. These two are always a packaged deal. They have the same over-sized look every… singe… year… I think I would die and resurrect if they wore something different. The Elizabeth & James sample sale is their brand, and it’s is opening tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honorable Mentions: 

Cara Delevingne: Wearing Dior and looking more like a dominatrix rather than a Catholic school girl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Claire Danes: Her dress contributed absolutely nothing to the theme. She added three colors together and added a feather. I’m hitting snooze button on this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Jenner Clan: Kris (in Tommy Hilfiger), Kendall (in Off-White), and Kylie (in Alexander Wang) were all SO boring! Not to mention that Travis Scott looks like a World War II German soldier. I guess Kim K. was the only one allowed to slay the red carpet that night. (P.S. Alexander Wang has sample sales.)

Lines for Days at the Versace Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

 

Another day, another line at 260 Sample Sale. The Versace sample sale had some good prices, but who knows what your’re going to find once you FINALLY get in there? We interviewed people waiting on line. Turns out, people were waiting for 3+ hours!! The line went down a whole city block and wrapped around part of another. One plus is that they offer men’s clothing and accessories. One gentleman we spoke with on line said, “Versace is lit right now.” So is Versace making a comeback? Whether they are or aren’t, the time you spend standing  on line isn’t worth it. Go home, binge watch American Crime Story: The Assassination of Giannini Versace, and go back at a later date.

Details and pictures below. A very special thank you to Madison Avenue Spy for the photos.
