If there is only one staple you plan to add to your wardrobe this Fall, I highly recommend a camel coat, or any wool coat in your preferred colour! I don’t think there is a more versatile piece out there that will basically never go out of style, and if you chose wisely, you can keep it forever! [Ad] Max Mara has always been one of my favourite brands and when I heard that Style Democracy was hosting a Max Mara sample sale, I knew that was my opportunity to grab that camel coat that will forever live in my closet! The sale did not disappoint; I found this stunning 100% wool camel coat for a fraction of the price: worth 1.3k, paid: $350!!! SCORE! Since I’m a little bit obsessed with camel, especially for Fall, I also grabbed this luxe wool/cashmere blend sweater! It was worth $975, and I paid $275!
If you’re interested in attending the Max Mara sample sale, hosted by Style Democracy, it’s on from Nov 4th-8th at the York Mills Gallery located at 1885 Leslie Street, North York, ON. Hours of operation: Wed-Fri 10am-8pm & Sat-Sun 10am-6pm (check out flyer below)!
A little bit about the sale: They have all the necessarily safety measures in place. I got my temperature taken, hands sanitized, and all shoppers respected the social distancing rules. Everything was organized by product category & by size, so you can easily find your way around & go straight to your desired section. Prices are clearly indicated on the big boards, where you see the “Original Retail” and “Sample Sale Price”. Max Mara actually has 5 different brands, so prices are listed by brand. There was a ton of coats, blazers, sweaters, dresses, pants, skirts, shoes & accessories to choose from & they re-stock the sale daily! Max Mara being a luxury brand, there was no surprise that all the pieces were of the highest quality: wool coats, cashmere sweaters, etc! I seriously had to hide my wallet & be reasonable with my purchase, but there were at least 2-3 coats, sweaters and pants I wanted to take home with me and the deals were unreal (as evidenced by the prices I paid)! There are no fitting rooms but they have installed mirrors all over the floor so that you can try on the clothes – hint: wear something light under your coat so that you can easily try things on. Also, even thought its a sample sale, they have a wide range of sizes from XS to XL, so don’t worry about not being able to find something in your size – you will likely find multiple pieces like me – haha!
Highly recommend you check out this Max Mara sample sale – you will not be disappointed!
