Fashion Sample Sale

5 Ways To Look Like A Million Bucks For Less

If Monday is as difficult for you as it is for the rest of us, fear not. There are many wonderful sample sales and shopping events taking place this week. There, you’ll be able to stock up on some low-cost designer items in advance of Spring, which just doesn’t want to come. There are five action items that would maximize anyone’s return on invested time. So below are a few, and I’m always interested in hearing more ideas… so ping me, follow me on Instagram @shopdropapp and shoot me your ideas. Yours always, Estee <3

  1. Shop sample sales

    Sample sales are the best-kept secret of gorgeous looking fashionistas. Most brands, yes, even Canali, DVF & Hermes hold sample sales in fashion capitals once or twice a year. The merchandise is sold at a whooping 70%-90% discount. Knowing where to find them sales is a key to looking chic without spending chic. There are a few things that can maximize your results though… and they require that you be prepared to shop wisely.

  2.  Do your research

    Before you head to a sample sale, find out which brand or brands are being featured. See if you like any of the items. Find out if the sale sells stock or sample sizes (most sample sales now sell stock). I recommend having an app that lists all sample sales installed on your phone. Once or twice a week, check in and put interesting sales on your calendar.

  3. Stay tuned for outliers

    If there is something on sale at the end of the season, chances are, there will be more of a selection in non-standard sizes. My mother-in-law has a 10.5 size foot, and sample sales for shoes are her heaven. You could find the most exquisite and exclusive designs for ridiculous prices if your feet are either ‘too big’ or ‘too small’. If you want to see the maximum selection, go on the first day.

  4. Know your budget

    If you want to spend $5-$10 on an item, then look out for flea markets, blowout sales, and final markdowns. Oftentimes, the last day of a sample sale will be accompanied with additional mark-offs. If your goal is getting the Hermes scarf, then stand in that line, and get to the sale as early as you can.

  5. Set your expectations

    The tradeoff of buying luxury items at sample sales is losing the experience. No one will fuss over you at a sample sale bringing you every item you could dream of. Most probably, you will have to change in a public changing room, will have to be swift in your choices and stand in line to check out. If you ask us, it’s definitely worth the 70%-90% discount you’ll get in the long run. And if you set your expectations correctly, the experience will be fun!
