Happy New Year my darling readers! We're officially in 2017 so let's raise a glass to more exciting designer deals and bargains. January is traditionally a slow month when it comes to sample sales but I've curated a few interesting events to share with all of you. 260 Sample Sale is going strong with first-ever sales from Faith Connexion and The Arrivals, Vivienne Tam is bringing back her archival clearance sale, towards the end of the month Clothingline will have their famous damages and irregulars sale from Theory and Helmut Lang, while next week you'll be able to shop Rachel Zoe's two day blow-out sale with discounts as high as 95% off retail. More sample sales will be announced in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled on my Facebook page as well as Twitter and Instagram stories. This month also offers substantial savings at various department stores. Markdowns and post-holiday returns at Saks, Neimans, Bloomies, etc. are always a good time to stock up on labels that do not host public sample sales. Designer discount chains like Century 21, Last Call, and Nordstrom Rack are also worth checking out.

THEORY | HELMUT LANG | January 23-26
Clothingline 261 West 36th St.
Monday - Thursday 11am - 7pm
Clothingline's damages and irregulars sample sale returns at the end of the month. Unlike the other Theory and Helmut Lang sample sales this event offers the biggest bargains although finding a worthwhile piece might be tricky. Go early for a chance to snag a leather coat or a nice pair of pants but triple check everything because many items can be damaged beyond repair. I've been lucky in previous years when I found $1,000 leather jackets for $50 and under.
