Even if you don’t live in one of the few global fashion capitals where going to sample sales is a viable thing to do with your free time, you’ve likely heard plenty of urban legends …
All of us East Coasters went crazy at the Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale in NYC (and we scored major loot), and now all of our West Coast ladies can as well. Today and this weekend, Rebecca Minkoff is hosting her Los Angeles and San Francisco Sample Sales. Each is bound to have plenty of loot at amazing prices. If you are able to stop by, have a plan in mind and make sure your arms are strong enough to hold many bags at once. Info after the jump! (more…)
Hermes handbags, accessories and scarves? On sale? We could barely believe it ourselves, but we caught word late yesterday that Hermes would be hosting its New York City sample sale this morning, starting at 9 a.m., at Soiffer Haskin, 317 W33rd Street.
So that’s like, what, an hour from now? Just enough time for you to fake a hacking cough, call in sick to work and get in a taxi headed straight for…West Midtown? North Chelsea? What area is that exactly? Or I guess you could get on the subway and head for Penn Station, but as anyone who’s even been in Penn Station knows, that’s a last resort. For discounted Hermes, though, it might be worth it. The sale runs from until 8 p.m. today, and if you absolutely can’t make it, you can also try your luck between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. If you go, please report back with what you bought and what they had!
Judith Leiber is one of those brands that you don’t often see at a big discount. Leiber’s tiny, sparkly evening bags are a favorite of collectors and hold a special place in the heart of so many bag owners that seasonal discounts are often unnecessary; one of her bags is like dessert after a steady diet of functional, durable leather bags.
That’s why the Judith Leiber sale at Gilt Groupe is all the more exciting – these are some seriously good prices on some incredibly special bags. My favorite is at top right, the one with the large, lovely, emerald-cut multichrome crystals. Check out the entire selection via Gilt Groupe, but don’t delay – the sale ends tomorrow.
This morning the Diane von Furstenberg Sample Sale opened its doors to the press. I rolled out of bed earlier than usual but it was all in the name of fashion, obviously worth it. The line was manageable, with only about 15 people in front of me, and I was allowed in soon after the doors opened at 8AM. (more…)
It is Sample Sale Season again. One thing I have loved about living in NYC is the ability to literally walk down the street and find sample sale after sample sale when the season arrives. One of our favorite SS to attend is Rebecca Minkoff’s, not only because we love her bags but also because we get to host it with Rebecca herself. (more…)

Don’t you just love the Internet? The deal-laden world of sample sales was once restricted only to those living in the world’s fashion capitals, but now more and more brands are bringing their sample sales online to give their worldwide fans a shot at some serious savings. PurseBlog favorite Botkier is staging its first-ever online sample sale on Tuesday, and not only will it include some of your favorite Botkier bags in never-before-seen colors, but you’ll get an extra 15% off the top, just for being a loyal PurseBlog reader or PurseForum member. Check back on Tuesday at 9 a.m. for a live link to the sale and the discount code, but for now, tell us which Botkier bag is your favorite and check out a video of my personal pick after the jump.
