I made it over to the J.Crew sample sale after work around 6pm. I was super excited and ready to find some great deals.
When I got over there, the line was long. It went by pretty fast, but I still ended up waiting outside for about 20-25 minutes. Once I got inside, I was happy to find that the room was filled with racks and racks of clothes. They had a section for shoes in the back and a section for accessories. Here are some pictures below. I don’t think photography was allowed so I had to sneak in some shots.

Racks and racks of clothes
So here’s the review: Although there were racks and rack of clothes, I was disappointed and walked out with nothing. I was expecting some great deals at the sample sale, but the prices were still pretty steep and nothing really caught my eye. The dresses were still $50, even though they were plain cotton dresses. The shirts ranged $35 and up, but because it was a sample sale, a lot of the pieces probably came from photo shoots and mannequins, and they were all marked up with writing on the back. I was excited about the accessories. J.Crew always has some cute but ridiculously expensive jewelry pieces, but the sale didn’t offer much of a discount. The bracelets were $25 and up and the necklaces were $60 and up. Oh, and the shoes were still priced at $100.
I left the sale after 30 minutes, disappointed and empty handed. But it was a good experience, and I definitely plan on going to more sample sales so stay tuned for my reviews!
