J Crew Sample Sale

Hey Friends! So I was brave enough to stop by the popular J. Crew Sample Sale in the midst of a NYC scorcher. The Gambian bouncer at the door said that it's considered winter weather in his native country. Yes- we tend to overact when it comes to the heat. As soon as you enter, you have to hand over your purse (anti-theft precautions) I grabbed my wallet and phone and dived right in.

My pros/cons and store info is listed below.

Happy Shoppers


The line wrapped around the corner as I exited around 6pm.
The shoes are not a huge discount. 
The back of the store where the buckets with accessories and swim wear are located.

The items I nabbed.


$25 pans marked down from original $85

These ladies are focused and on a mission.

The line to the dressing room

Pros:
-An abundance of Sleeveless Tweed Dresses for $70
-Tons of Tees & Cardis for $15-$30
-Gorgeous baubles in the jewelry section $40-$80
-Good amount of shorts for $25
-Accepts major credit cards
Cons:
- Very limited amount of pencil skirts (my fav)
-Select sizes- It's either a size 2 or a size 12/14
-The dressing room is co-gendered and doesn't offer individual stalls. Be sure to leave the granny undies at home because everyone can see you. =)
-Very cramped aisles and hard to get through
Extras:
-Madewell items are in the middle
-Jewelry are stowed away in transparent jewelry boxes. An associate will assist you and send it to your register when you're ready to checkout

Overall it was a decent experience it wasn't a mega-deal-tell-all-your-friends affair but worth the wait at least for me.

    1. Taylor, it really was utter madness. These girls are hardcore fans and some were down the block, around the corner on the line in 96 degree weather.

  2. Whoa! This looks like a mad house! I'm glad you were able to scoop up some good deals. I don't know if I'd have the patience for it, so major props to you for fighting the crowds! :)

    1. Lol! I think after today I'm going to carefully consider going to these sales events. I could hardly move and shared a dressing room for the 1st time with random male strangers..ha!

  3. You are such a trooper! Especially in the heat we have gotten the last few days!

    But I'm sure it was all worth it!

    Hope to see all your purchases via your blog :)

  4. I just started reading your blog! I love it. We had the J.Crew sample sale travel to Chapel Hill, NC close to wear I live. They didn't have any dressing rooms and you had to change out in the open! Luckily I got a heads up to wear leggings and a tank top. :-)
