NY Sample Sale Review: J Mendel

J Mendel Sample Sale NY Jen X

By Dynasty George, independent designer & fellow

My first time using the ShopDrop app, I wanted to find a Sample sale that was exclusive and elite, one I could only have access to via the app. So, I decided to check out the J Mendel Sample Sale! You had to register beforehand the day and time you wanted to come, which I loved because sample sales can be very hectic so having an organized system really impressed me.

 I loved how much information that app gave me about how to register, the season they were selling, and the discount amount! It made it easier for me to shop and plan beforehand.

When I arrived, I first checked in, they had people in the front making sure everyone was registered. I registered myself and a plus one, which was great because who likes shopping alone? They then had a friendly coat check person who took my coat & bag but let me keep my camera. The next thing I saw were racks full of faux fur shawls, racks full of immaculate dresses, and a corner full of pristine shoes with a sign overhead that read “All $100.”  I felt like I walked into my dream walk in closet, one owned by a Kardashian. All the racks were organized by size, making shopping easier. I had to go up a dress size from my usual size, so I would recommend the same for anyone buying designer dresses. I immediately fell in love with every dress I tried on, feeling nothing less than a princess. The showroom provided people to help us like an actual retail store, which was very helpful. They set a spot in the fitting room for me, zipped me in all the dresses, gave me practical advice and assisted me towards other dresses I might have overlooked. The staff there was amazing and extremely helpful. Since there was a registration beforehand, the atmosphere wasn’t at all chaotic. It was very laid back and sophisticated. I felt I like I was in the actual retail store, as I saw stylist work privately with clients and other associates assisting others with purchases, I felt totally comfortably and at ease shopping!

Overall, I had an amazing experience at the J Mendel Sample Sale. If you have an event coming up and you need to buy an extravagant dress, defiantly check out a sample sale first! The design and quality of the clothing was incredible compared to the price it was reduced to. I would even recommend getting your wedding dress at a sample sale if you’re on a budget! I tried on a beautiful couture wedding gown that was 60% off the original price!!! I definitely will be using the ShopDrop app for all my future shopping endeavors!
