Sample Sale Mania: DVF, Zac Posen, Wang, JW Anderson & More

November is always a premium time for sample sales. Next week is turning out to be extra buzzy with an abundance of noteworthy announcements. There are so many fantastic options that it's going to be hard to choose which ones to attend. Read below to see our highlights and plan your shopping strategy.

Be sure to follow along on Instagram for inside pictures and real time updates.



J.W. Anderson
The J.W. Anderson sale technically starts this weekend but we couldn't help from wanting to take advantage of getting some of the Brit designer's high fashion for low prices. The sale will include womenswear, menswear, shoes, bags, jewelry, and accessories priced up to 70% off. Perhaps there will be steeper discounts as the sale comes to a close.
Saturday, November 12 through Monday, November 14
Sat 10am-7pm, Sun 10am-5pm, Mon 10am- 4pm
Bryant Park Hotel, 40 W. 40th St. 24th Fl (btwn 5th & 6th)

Armani
The Giorgio Armani sample sale has always had a very large turnout. There are often waits to get in from the start of the sale and the crowds tend to thin later in the week. There are also lots of discounts as the sale draws out but we've also waited and been disappointed by the lack of attractive merchandise. It's really a crap shoot. Expect to find clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry and accessories along all the designer's lines including, Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Armani Collezioni and Armani Jeans.
Saturday, November 12 through Wednesday, November 16
Sat & Sun 9am-6pm, Mon & Tues 9am-7pm, Wed 9am-5:30om
Soiffer Haskin- 317 W. 33rd St.

Cire Truden
Move over Dyptique, Cire Truden is lighting up the season as the most popular fragrance sale of the season. This is the brand's first sample sale. We are sure it will draw large crowds who want to stock up on luxe holiday gifts.
Tuesday, November 15 through Thursday, November 17
8am-9pm daily
Century 21: 21 Dey St. (btw Broadway & Church St.)

Diane von Furstenberg
The queen of all sample sales is back. Last season, was the first sample sale after a long hiatus. The outcome wasn't thrilling -- there wasn't even a rack of the designer's famous samples. We are hoping the winter sale will be better. Stay tuned.
Tuesday, November 15 through Saturday, November 19
Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-7pm
260 Fifth Ave. (btwn 28th & 29th)

Zac Posen
We haven't been to a Zac Posen sale in ages and we must say we've missed them. Years ago, we found gowns marked just $200 and even had a run-in with the designer. Lets hope that he will lend his styling assistance to shoppers again. 
Monday, November 14 through Wednesday, November 16
10am-6pm
33 East 33rd Street (12th Floor) between Park & Madison

Alexander Wang
Fans of Alexander Wang go crazy when the designer hosts his famous sample sales. It's not ever year and when it's announced shoppers get excited. You can always count on super merchandise at great prices. At the last sale, handbags started at just $200.
150 Greene St. (btwn Houston & Prince St.)
Tuesday, November 15 through Saturday, November 19
9am-8pm

Charlotte Olympia
We couldn't be more excited to grab shoes from the quirky Brit. At the last sale, Kitty flats were $250 and more ornate style boots ran up to $600. The best styles get snatched up quickly. If you want the best selection we suggest you don't hesitate-- there isn't any restocking.
