Don’t expect to find clothing at the Editorialist Sample Sale; save for a small rack consisting of about five pieces, this sale is dedicated to jewelry, shoes, and accessories.

The first two sales are devoted to jewelry, which caps off at $350 for most pieces. There is a large selection of Chloe pieces; bracelets range from $150-$250, and rings are $100. Dannijo takes up half a table, with bracelets for $75-$150, earrings from $50 to $200, and necklaces for $150 to $350.

Tom Binns’ bracelets are marked at $75 to $300, his necklaces are $300, and his rings and earrings go for $50-$75. Eddie Barco bracelets range from $75 to $350. There is also a selection of $100 Lele Sadoughi chokers, and bracelets for $75 to $150. A gilded Oscar de la Renta headpiece is $150, while nearby earrings and bracelets are $75 to $100.

The shoe selection favors sizes 37 through 39, and mainly consists of heels and sandals. There are Jason Wus for $100, Tabitha Simmons for $150 to $400, and Aquazzaras for $200 to $500. Valentinos are $400 to $500, Alexander Birmans go for $150 to $200, and Pierre Hardys for $350 to $00. Shoes by Sophia Webster or Giuseppe Zanotti are all $300.

Those who plan to visit the Issey Miyake sale before 3pm today, prepare to be jockeyed around as you rummage through the racks of micro pleated wares. While the event appears to have plenty of clothes left, touch the wrong silk shirt and another shopper may lunge at you from a few feet away, snapping that they already claimed that piece. While this might seem like a breach of sample sale etiquette, it was excessively common at this particular sale, making shopping the already disorganized clothing even more of a challenge.

But, for the undeterred shopper there awaits a decent selection of pieces by Issey Miyake’s family of brands at 80% off retail. You’ll find that most tops range from $60 to $120, and pants are similarly priced. Dresses start at $80 and cap off around $300. Shoes and handbags are mostly $200 to $300, and scarves and belts are $70 to $80.

This is a one day sale. There will be some restocking throughout the day.

Beads, sequins, razzle dazzle—if this is what you’re looking for in a fancy evening dress, head over to the Badgley Mischka sample sale. With a range of samples, ready-to-wear, and couture, this sale delivers, no matter your budget.

If you are a size four and looking for the best deals, make a beeline to the sample racks. Sample gowns are $100, cocktail dresses are $50, and separates are $25. Among the pieces that had marked prices, nearly every one was a size four, but it is still worth a look for sizes 0-6. Expect a few of these pieces to be in less than pristine condition. I spotted missing beads, snags, loose threads and makeup stains.

The ready-to-wear pieces are all 70% off their original retail price, and appear to be mainly from the S/S 2015 collection. Shirts, originally between $175 and $500, are now between $52.50 for a tweed sleeveless top and $150 for a leather tank. Skirts hover around the $100 mark, with $85.50 for a tweed mini skirt and $115 for a textured beige pencil skirt.

Dresses are the main event at this sale, with short cocktail dresses falling between $50.70 for a coral shift and $132 for a fully sequined back and navy dress. There are two kinds of gowns, normal RTW and Couture. Long RTW gowns range from $69 for a pink sateen dress with a sequined bust, and $208.50 for a minimalist white gown. The couture area is hard to navigate, with most pieces wrapped in bubble wrap and plastic, and most price tags obscured. The staff informed me that most pieces in this area were upwards of $1,000.

The sale runs through Sunday, August 9th.
