*SAMPLE SALE* This Week's YSL Sale: Disappointment (Again!)

What was regarded as one of the greatest sample sales in NYC has become nothing but a sad disappointment lately. The last YSL sale, which took place only a few months ago, was the worst sale the brand has ever had. Now that the company is hosting yet another event for the fall shopping season, I'm sure many of you are having doubts and wondering if it's worth your time and money. Well, thanks to a few kind Mizhattanites who shared some details from inside today's VIP sale, I can soundly say this week's YSL sample sale is another letdown.

According to one tipster, just like previous sales, today's sale merchandise was comprised of ancient Stefano Pilati designs and nothing from Hedi Slimane's current lineup. Those of you thinking of snatching up a few archival YSL handbags shouldn't even bother either. The bag section, as described by another tipster, was almost non-existent. Read: No clutches and definitely nothing desirable.

The shoe selection, per another reader, was described in a somewhat optimistic fashion. With prices ranging from $150 to $300, there were a few cute sandals & heels--but this all depends on your size. I've also been told sunglasses, jewelry, and fragrances are worth a peek but that's it.

Ultimately, to go or not to go is your call. But as stated by fellow Mizhattanites who wrote in, today's YSL sample sale was a fail. So, for the first time, I'm planning on skipping the YSL sale tomorrow. Instead, I'll be reporting from many other sample sales happening this week. Stay tuned!

    1. I asked one of our readers and she stated the men's section fared better than the women's.

  4. I dropped by this morning and it was horrible. I was hoping your tipsters were wrong but it turned out to be all true.

  5. Men's section was terrible. Waiting on line for a long time and left empty handed.

  6. I wouldn't touch this sale with a 10-foot pole. It's that bad from what I heard from friends.

  7. Any idea what fragrances are there? I'd love a bottle of In Love Again.

  8. If definitely wasn’t YSL’s best sale yet. I've been going yearly to all of the sales. It was way better then the summer sale. If you have time and the line is not long, it is worth giving it a shot. I got a bunch of accessories for $50 each.

    1. Sure, two bangles (but there we're none left) a necklace. 2 belts and a ring, not the Arty. If your going for their main staple pieces there not there. Good luck

  12. I would agree with everyone but I got out of a meeting early and walked by there was no line so I went in and while it took me a while but scored BIG (nude tribute sandals in my size!) but unless you're a size 5 or 11, 12 the shoe selection is paltry unless you're interested in Tribtoo pumps and can handle the seriously obnoxious line monitor - go for it.

    1. Thank you for your insight! Hope you enjoy your new shoes!

  13. Thank you! I can't tell you how long i've been looking for them on sale! As for bags there weren't that many available yesterday afternoon and no muses. If you were in the market for clothing there looked like some good deals for small sizes. Someone was trying on a bright purple caftan with beaded neckline and it looked great.

  14. Most of the items I have seen there were from the summer sale – if you are a small size there is not that much there – very very few dresses and the gowns were looking tired – very few. Belts – ok selection. I waited in line for 10 minutes and it was not worth it.

  15. Any jewelries like rings or bangles left? Many thanks in advance.

  17. I went to the June 2013 sample sale bought large dark brown leather downtown bag and have never used it. If anyone is interested in buying I would be happy to sell it as I will never use it. Let me know if interested and I will send pictures and details.
