Accessorize Your Wardrobe with Accents by Sophia...

Artsy Anna was looking to enhance some of her outfits.  She found some great accents at the Accents by Sophia sample sale.  Here's her report: I'd heard of Accents by Sophia but never been to one of their sales before today.  The wholesaler, who opens to the public twice a year for its sample sales, sells under private label to department stores, including Sak[...]

Further Price Reductions at Fred Perry

If you thought the prices were pretty good at the Fred Perry sale, it gets better... Artsy Anna went back to the sale in Chelsea.  She got the dirt on the reductions: Here are the deals hot off the press: Women's track jackets are now $30 each or 4/$100 Women's polos are $30 each or 4/$100 Other jackets are priced as marked ($60-$200) The rack of Komodo wo[...]

VIDEO:  Tough Getting a Loub Job...

httpv:// After all the reports about the Christian Louboutin invitation-only sale, I thought I'd check out the line outside the building on West 38th Street in the Garment District this morning where the sale was being held. The line went down the street.  It didn't look long but when I asked how long the wait was, a Daily Candy wr[...]

Sample Size Rules at Tocca Sample Sale

I made it to the Tocca Friends & Family sale yesterday.  There was no list so anyone who knew about the preview sale could have gone into the label's showroom in Chelsea (it's on the same floor as the Herion showroom).  Today, the sale opens to the public. While there was plenty of merchandise to be had at 60 to 85 percent off, there didn't seem to be as much[...]

Positively Perry for Polos and more...

Our sample sale queen, Artsy Anna, just returned from the Fred Perry sample sale this afternoon with rave reviews.  Here's what she has to say: The current Fred Perry sample is the best I've ever seen from this brand.  There's an extensive but manageable range of goods for both men and women.  Prices are absolutely reasonable. Polos are $38-$44, track jackets[...]

Hurry on over to Herion...

httpv:// I discovered this Italian label last spring at the brand's sample sale.  Upon walking into the airy Chelsea showroom, I was immediately drawn to the quirky prints - graphic and animal (picture zebras, birds and elephants).  The clothes are feminine, classic and fun and fabrics are high quality silks, cottons and wools.  [...]

Meh!... Miguelina Sample Sale

While Artsy Anna was making the sample sale rounds on Monday, she managed to check out the Miguelina showroom on West 36th Street to find a lackluster sale... Miguelina's showroom was empty (save for the staffers).   A bright, cheery reception area lead to a dimly lit and instantly depressing windowless room--very out of character with the brand's usually flirty[...]
