Fashion Sample Sale

We Dressed it up at the Derek Lam Sample Sale

By: Liza Sakhaie

Naturally, we don’t all have time to go to every sample sale in the game, forcing us to prioritize our favorites. As a business student, I sometimes find myself weighing the pros and cons of each sale. But considering the fact that on average, Derek Lam’s pieces cost $1000, the choice was simple. I knew I had to seize the opportunity to get my hands on the American designer’s sensible and detailed collection.

When I walked into Clothing Line, the sample sale host, I realized that my experience might be a little thrifty—I was definitely going to have to hunt to find the best items, especially since I only managed to make it there on the final day. After tossing aside some super baggy sweaters (originally $1400!!) and making it past the more matronly pieces of the collection, I came across this gem— (Score!!)

Derek Lam Sample Sale

Lam upgraded the classic statement white blazer with a splatter paint detailing, making it easy to pair with both white and black trousers. I quickly found a pair of wide leg black suit pants to match, creating the perfect outfit to stand out at work or any event. The total cost of the outfit originally came out to almost $3,000 ($2000 for the jacket alone) but I got it for almost 70% off! Thank goodness for ShopDrop for always being there for me when I need to find a good sample sample.

If you’re looking for a timeless yet modern additions to your closet, definitely add Derek Lam to your list of Sample Sales to check out next season. You’ll be sure to find the right combination of classy yet unconventional pieces!

Stay tuned,

Liza
