Hurricane Sandy

4 November 2012

To Our Valued and Beloved Readers,

It is from the depths of our hearts that we offer our condolences to those affected by Hurricane Sandy’s destructive path. Last week, many were left with little to nothing from the vicious super-storm even the most prepared could not battle. Homes were destroyed, lives were lost, and spirits were broken. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you who have been impacted by Sandy’s wrath and we deeply hope your friends and family are safe.

As power is gradually restored, we crawl slowly towards our return to normalcy. The Stylish City considered not releasing a “Don’t Miss This Week” because for many, shopping will be the last thing on anyone’s mind this week. But for some, it may act as a stress reliever — retail therapy if you will – and that is why we have decided to bring you suggestions on where to shop this week in hope that it restores a sense of relief within and helps you take your mind off the horrible week our surrounding area has had, if only for a little bit. For a shopping escape this week, visit sales from Alexander Wang, AEFFE USA Clothing, Pixie Market, Dsquared2, Maison Martin Margiela, Viktor&Rolf, and the invitation only sale from Christian Louboutin, and Manolo Blahnik.

Alexander Wang Sample Sale

The uber popular Alexander Wang Sample Sale is back this week and edgy dressing New Yorkers are bursting at the seams with excitement. Last year, aside from long lines, the Alexander Wang Sample Sale brought us $20 tee shirts and $60 knit sweaters from Wang’s T line. This year, the sale promises up to 70% off ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories at 131 Greene Street beginning Tuesday, November 6th.

AEFFE USA Fall/Winter Sample Sale

Wednesday, November 7th brings the bi-annual clearance sale at AEFFEE USA on 56th Street. Although retail sale more than a sample sale, AEFFE plans to reduce their fall and winter stock by 65% or more. Brands you should plan to come across are Alberta Ferretti, Cacharel, Fuzzi, Jean Paul Gaultuer, Moschino and Pollini.

Dsquared2, Maison Martin Margiela, Viktor&Rolf, and more Sample Sale

The sleek looking Dsquared2 line and pieces from the cutting edge Viktor&Rolf will be on sale starting Thursday, November 8th at Staff USA on West 19th Street. Staff USA also promises stock and samples in addition to Fall and Winter 2012 pieces from Maison Martin Margiela, MM6 and more.

Pixie Market Sample Sale (Rescheduled from Last Week)

If you love downtown fashion, then you are already aware of the Lower East Side’s Pixie Market on Stanton Street. Friday, Pixie Market will host a sample sale with price slashes on all of our favorite edgy designers. According to their sale listing, women’s apparel and accessories are priced between $20-$40! I know where I’ll be Friday: First in line to scope out their Jeffrey Campbell sale selection.

Invitation Only: Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale

As reported last weekChristian Louboutin  was planning to hold a super exclusive, invitation only sample sale  at 306 West 38th Street starting   Monday, November 5th.    The Warwick Hotel was supposed to play home to the super exclusive Manolo Blahnik sample sale starting  this Wednesday, November 7th. MadisonSpy.com reports that both sales have been cancelled or rescheduled. Keep checking up with us,  we will update you Monday with more information about both sales and any other last minute changes to the others.

As Hurricane Sandy takes the east coast by force this Halloween week, we can’t help but brace ourselves for what has the potential to be the worst storm the tri-state has ever seen. Most, if not all of us, will be bound to our homes on Monday and Tuesday, hopefully safe and sound, drinking hot cocoa and browsing the infinite pages of the Internet, hoping to score some shopping steals. We’ll use shopping to get us through Sandy’s impending doom and also to celebrate her departure, which can’t come quickly enough. Fellow sweet tooth’s: Let’s not allow Sandy to steal the spotlight from our favorite candy themed holiday (Happy Halloween!) and aside from snacking all day on Reese’s, Snickers, and Milky Ways, satisfy your shopping cravings with super sweet sales from Furla, Under Amour, United Nude, Pixie Market and Rena. We’ll also give you a sneak peak of next week’s sales, post-Frankenstorm and how to utilize your time stuck in your apartment wisely.

Furla Sample Sale

Given the Furla Sample Sale will more than likely be cancelled on Tuesday, you can still be the first in line come Wednesday as Clothingline on 36th Street opens its doors to unveil deep discounts on luxurious leather bags, shoes, and small accessories from Furla.

Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, the Furla Sample Sale has been postponed to November 25th.

Under Armour Sample Sale

Monday morning it was reported that Hurricane Sandy has more than a 50% chance of knocking out power, which can last for up to ten days. Yikes! As nights become chillier and the prospects of having heat this week becomes dismal, the Under Armour Sample Sale couldn’t come at a better time. Wednesday’s Halloween day Thursday will bring fantastic deals on performance gear at 260 Fifth Avenue. After we load up on new workout gear, we’ll grab some long sleeve Under Armour performance shirts to wear under our fur coats.

United Nude Sample Sale

Kara Ross Sample SaleNo censors here. Thursday’s United Nude Sample Sale will feature not only their abstract 2012 spring and summer styles, but also pairs of shoes from their fall and winter 2011 collections for low prices between $25-$100. United Nude’s funky and eye catching heels, which helm names such as the ‘Elastic Remix Hi’ and ‘Fold Lo Bright Miz’ are essential if you want a knock out pair of heels this winter.

Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, the United Nude Sample Sale has been postponed to November 8th.

Pixie Market Sample Sale

If you love downtown fashion, then you are already aware of the Lower East Side’s Pixie Market on Stanton Street.  Friday, Pixie Market will host a sample sale with price slashes on all of our favorite edgy designers. According to their sale listing, women’s apparel and accessories are priced between $20-$40! I know where I’ll be Friday: First in line to scope out their Jeffrey Campbell sale selection.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the Pixie Market Sample Sale has been postponed to November 9th.

Rena Lange Sample Sale

The Stylish City loves a true blue sample sale, and Rena Lange is hosting one starting Sunday in their showroom on 14th Street. For up to 90% off, the designer brand will offer their wow-worthy-work suits and outfits from Fall/Winter 2012 as well as sample and stock pieces in sizes 4-14.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the Rena Lange Sample Sale has been postponed to December 16th.

Post Frankenstorm

The rain has cleared, the streets are dry, and we’re fully recouped from the ultimate Halloween hurricane. Next week, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik are both holding super exclusive, invitation only sample sales. As we’ve learned in the past, there is no getting around security at the door. So, here’s the thing. While you’re sitting around for the next few days, trapped inside, utilize your time wisely and troll fashion blogs and email industry pals in order to find your way on to Christian Louboutin and Manolo Bahnik’s super exclusive sample sale list. If you’re successful, share your excitement or your tips in our comments section!

Also, next week keep an eye out for the always fabulous Alexander Wang Sample Sale, as well as the AEFFE USA, and Armani Sample Sales.

New York City will be sweeping up Sandy’s destruction during the latter half of this week and while our city officials get things up and running again, we’ll help stimulate the economy by doing what we do best: shopping!
