Friday 10/23 Update: Today is the last day of the sale, and we got word that they will be slashing prices. All shoes will be an additional 50% off. There's not that much left but great prices. All denim will be $65 a pair or 2 for $100. Torn will be reduced further except for the fur.
Earlier tonight Erin and I stopped by 307 West 38th Street to preview a sample sale hosted by The Savvy. They were still in the process of setting up when we stopped in, but we can tell you that there will be plenty of inventory: 1,800 pairs of jeans, 500 pairs of shoes...
All pairs were priced at $75. Sizes range from 24 through 32 in various cuts and colors. Lots of inventory in every size, especially size 27.

There were a handful of pieces that are currently selling at Intermix and Shopbop like the plaid tunic and one-shoulder body con dress. I saw lots of solids, fun prints and embellished tops and tunics, a few unitards and tank dresses, and a couple maxi dresses. Sizes varied per style, but there was a decent selection in every size. Size M and L seemed to be the most plentiful
Prices on jersey pieces ranged from $25 to $75 - lots of tanks and tees at $25. Most of our favorite pieces like the embellished tanks and plaid tunics were $50. There were also some fur vests and coats for $240+.
Fall favorites, fur ($240+) and plaid ($50)
90s floral peplum dress & gray one shoulder dress ($70). If I bought the floral dress, I would probably take the hem up a bit.
Shoe Samples from Ash, Luxury Rebel, Miss Sixty & United Nude
Size 7 and 8, you're in luck! I'm a size 7 and usually shoe samples are size 6 or 6.5, so I kind of freaked out when I saw the table of samples. Ironically, most of the shoes I picked out were size 8 in the sea of size 7s. There were plenty of boxes in the back, so I may stop by again later this week.
Shoe prices were as follows: boots $75, pumps $50 and flats $35.
Less crazy about the shoes on this side of the table.
United Nude sample, size 8 ($50). Will you look at that heel? Amaaazing!
Ash sample, size 8 ($75, grouped in with booties). It kills me that these weren't in my size.
Overall, it looks like it will be a great sale. Pricing is nice, especially on the denim and shoes (again size 7 & 8 only). The fitting "room" is a big space upstairs with 4+ large mirrors. With so much stock and affordable prices, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets crazy crowded, but even with a little sample sale mayhem, I think this one would be worth it.
