Similar to music, I love discovering new brands. With new online luxury brands coming out of the woodwork, it’s hard to keep up. It’s also not so desirable to pay top dollar for new a brand I’m not familiar with, especially without actually getting to touch the merchandise before purchasing.
What better time to discover a new brand then when their merchandise is going for 60-90% off at a sample sale? Check out our top 5 NYC sample sales this week.
1. Chelsea and Walker Sample Sale
Chelsea and Walker claim to be breaking the boundaries of contemporary fashion, designed for those not searching to fit a mold.

2. Vivienne Tam Summer Sample Sale
Vintage doesn’t seem to be going anywhere fast… If you ask me, raiding your grandparent’s closet is the best way to get access to this trend… An easier way would probably be to check out the Vivienne Tam summer sample sale, and get 80% off original vintage samples at their three day sample sale.
