Sample This

Sample sales were once reserved for the urbanites who could take a day off work to rummage through racks of clothes to find the one coveted item in their size. Thanks to the internet you no longer have to move into NYC or out to LA to be close enough to the great designer sample sales. There are 2 great websites that bring fabulous sample sales into your homes. Both sites Gilt Groupe and Haute Look have sample sales occurring at all times. Onsite are brands and designers you can find in luxury boutiques and high end department stores. The selection and quality are not to be beat. You now have the luxury to shop in the privacy of your own home for the one dress you have been dying for but cannot bare to spend $500 on. There is no sorting through racks and racks of tiny tops to find the one shirt that is your size. Everything is neatly organized on a grid to find exactly what you are looking for in your size. On both sites you can narrow down the clothes by size to see if they actually have those wide leg trousers in your size.
Currently Gilt Group is holding 5 sample sales from women’s clothes to accessories for your baby’s nursery. Choose from items by Costello Tagliapietra, Twelfth Street By Cynthia Vincent, DweelStudio, Diesel Men’s, and M Missoni. Haute Look has 3 sales currently running: Alex and Ani, Sass & Bide and Minnie Rose. Don’t like what is on the menu today? Both sites will tell you what sales are coming up in the next few days. Oh and I forgot to mention, prices are ridiculously reduced, well over 50%. That’s reason enough to shop. Go ahead, make your friends think you indulged at Bloomingdales.
