Nicole Miller Sample Sale: A Sure Bet for Fashionistas & Summer Brides
The Nicole Miller Sample Sale is well stocked with beautiful designs at incredibly low prices. Beginning on Tuesday at 10AM, the Nicole Miller Sample Sale will open its doors to the public at 260 Fifth Avenue. The Stylish City was lucky enough to score an invite to a preview of the sale on Monday, and needless to say, we were very impressed with what we saw.
Nicole Miller, who is known for her fabric manipulations, and bright prints and patterns, not only offers show stopping dresses, but also stunning casual wear and a gorgeous collection of bridal wear. Her recently launched casual line, Artelier, was available in the truckload throughout the racks, and – if you’re not in the market for a bridal gown – this selection is the sure hit of the sale.
On Monday, RueLaLa launched their very own Nicole Miller sale, offering Miller’s popular dresses, blouses and skirts at a discount. However, these prices pale in comparison to the tags at the Nicole Miller Sample Sale, exhibiting that the physical sale trumps the digital this week.
If you are a bride to be, and missed last week’s round of bridal sample sale shopping, then seriously, make sure you’re at the top of the line at the opening of the Nicole Miller Sample Sale. These designer gowns are $350. Did you hear that? $350 for a designer gown! Dresses are available in sizes 0-16, with the majority of the dresses in size 4. Many of the styles are well stocked and reappear throughout each size section. If you prefer lavish, princess style bridal wear then this sale may not be your fit. But if you’re into the simple yet elegant look, then this is your jam. Nearly all the dresses are 94% silk, 6% spandex (some 96%/4%), and feature an empire, flare, or simple A-line style. Did I mention they’re $350?
As stated earlier, if you are not in the market for bridal-wear than this sale is still worth a visit for the Nicole Miller Artelier pieces on sale. This casual line is a hybrid of uptown and downtown fashion — perfectly edgy while maintaining sophistication. Some of the standouts include Faux Stretch Leather Leggings in a variety of styles ($60), Floral Patterned Black Skinny Jeans ($60), a Black and Gold Military Wool Blazer ($85), Silk Tuxedo Shirt Dress with an Embellished Collar ($80) and an olive green Cupro Jacket ($85).
A wide variety of classic Nicole Miller dresses were lusted after at the sale, including a Blue Rayon Dress ($80), which was skin tight and a sure flattering fit, a silk Mustard Shirt Dress with Embellished Shoulders ($80), as well as a nice variety of printed and solid color skirts, with the majority being short and a few knee-length exceptions ($40).
There were only about five pairs of shoes to be seen ($50 each), including the Peep Toe Ankle Boot and the Pony Vintage Knee Boot. Also, only a small collection of jewelry was on hand, including statement bib necklaces, simple charms, and bright snap bracelets ($40 a piece).
The far back of the room features a large collection of true, one-of-a-kind samples. None of the pieces here caught my eye, but they’re worth a browse to see if you have any luck! Prices run between $30 for tops and $100 for bridal.
As a last note, there is no leather category at this sale therefor any leather pieces you find are categorized within their respective style’s price point (i.e. a leather jacket is only $85).
All in all, the Nicole Miller Sample Sale is a do not miss. So what are you waiting for? Get on over there! Happy Shopping!
