January 2018 Sample Sales

Thursday, January 25, 2018


The month is almost over and I have been MIA for over two months! 😯 You guys are well overdue for some exciting NYC sample sale action so I rounded up my picks for the next two weeks. I'm sure you also may have noticed that the good ole' blog got a much needed facelift and a custom domain name! www.practicallyhaute.com sounds so much nicer without that dreaded Blogger subdomain, right? 😊 Anyhow, I'll be discussing all the blog updates and what they mean for you, my dear readers, in the next post. Meanwhile it's time to get back into the fray because sample sales wait for no one.


This week Fivestory is back with their semi-annual off-site sale, although the markdowns are not as high as previous years. All clothes is 80% off retail, shoes are 75% off and other categories vary from 60% to 70% off retail. My advice at this point is to wait for additional markdowns. Frye and Aquatalia are having a joint sample sale that couldn't have come at a better time, what with all the cold weather we've been having.  Prices start at $69 for shoes and go up to $229 for fur boots. There is actually a warehouse sale featuring both brands as well as other contemporary designers happening nearby and from what I heard their prices are cheaper.

Speaking of freezing temperatures........if you're into furs then there are two sales for you to check out: Jocelyn and Dennis Basso. The former requires an appointment (info is in the listing below) while the latter promises the biggest selection of furs to date, including children's furs. Clothingline is having one of their multi-brand sales featuring Schutz, The Arrivals, and many more.

While all these sales sound good I am really excited about next week. 260 Sample Sale will host two must-shop events: Herve Leger sample sale that promises savings of up to 90% off as well as their biggest New York City sample sale yet and a multi-brand beauty sale. Artis brushes, Dr.Jart+ skincare, CoverFX makeup, and GHD hair tools will all be available for up to 70% off! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ  I will be covering both events here on the blog and social media.
