I went on Sunday, day two of the sale. I'd been to the sale last year so I anticipated a long line. I got there at 7:30 AM and it opened at 10, my friend and I were 12th in line. I had read comments from Saturday saying that they would restock for Sunday. I asked one of the girls while I was checking out and she confirmed that they had NOT actually restocked but instead just reorganized so it looked fuller. I was not upset with what was leftover, there were still some really great pieces and a variety of sizes. A few items were damaged but for the most part they were good quality. As far as pricing goes, it was still relatively expensive. I feel the best deals were on their swim and skivvies. I also found a dress that was missing the under-piece so the saleswoman graciously sold it to me for the price of a top. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.
Hey Celeste! On Saturday morning around 7:00 A.M. and driving on the 10-west from El Monte and headed to the L&L sale..when my boyfriend and I got in a car wreck.. nightmare and I never made it after waiting a whole goddamn YEAR for this sale. Needless to say, my day and my Kia Soul were ruined. But I did enjoy reading your account of the sale. Written very well and informative too. So thank you for that. The whole deal with the hysteria of the re-sellers is truly a pain-in-the ass, f***ed-up situation. Savages. I’ve seen women act more scandalously foul to each other at these sales then I have in prison. So once again I find myself having to wait another year to go to this goddamn sale! But hey, what’s one year...when I’ve got nothing but TIME? ....charlene💕
Wow! That’s terrible! Hope you weren’t hurt! 😮😘
Ok so let’s get to the good, the bad, and the ugly of this sale. The good was it was organized extremely well. Clothing divided by color groupings and plenty of space for you to move around and a good amount of product in a variety of sizes. It was extremely well done and appealing to the eye. The staff get 5 stars in their helpfulness and being super friendly. The also were great about putting merchandise back quickly and keeping clothing off the floor and in good condition. As for the clothes themselves I saw very few damaged outfits so I would say 90 percent of this sale was in production live merchandise overstock that they just wanted moved out. The staff gets again 5 stars, clothing 4 stars as you got older styles mixed in with the newer ones but it’s a sample sale so honestly you should expect that.

Prices could have been lower, and should have been lower, it reminded me of some For Love and Lemons that I bought at Nordstrom on sale, so you you’re not getting that great of a discount. Certainly not enough of one to camp out over night for, that’s for sure. BUT I will say this is probably the cheapest you will find this brand from legit direct sources, so it is worth you going, But probably later on in the day when the lines have died down, because they have a great amount of stock, which again is a plus. I had no problem finding parking, it was free and on the same street, which put me in a great mood, but to be fair I showed up around noon, so people had already come and go and spots were available. There was no additional markdowns on the second day, just incase you were wondering, same prices as on the first.

Now let’s go to the bad. This particular line runs small, (like I’m a size 2 and I bought smalls instead of extra small) so you should come prepared to try on. Also for some reason women keep bringing their boyfriends and husbands to these things, knowing that there probably won’t be any dressing room, so they shouldn’t get mad and upset when they see some women standing in the open with nothing buy their underwear on and their man is gawking at them. I saw a woman get mad because her boyfriend was checking other women out while they were changing, one that’s her fault for bringing him in the first place, two, that’s just pervy and creepy, three, again her fault for bringing him, he at least should have stayed in the car. There were also no mirrors, there should have been mirrors. If your not going to give me a dressing room, then at least give me a mirror to see how it fits!

Now for the downright ugly. Resellers are a HUGE problem at almost every sample sale here in Los Angeles and in New York. Mainly because these people are not legit business resellers and can’t buy wholesale from the brands so they come to these sample sales to get cheap product, they then mark it up and sell it via EBay, Poshmark, WhatsApp, and some other selling tools they use. I’m okay with people hustling for a living, what I’m not okay with is when it directly affects my shopping experience. It a really big problem and unfair to people who really want to buy for themselves because these people hoard, and I mean HOARD in boxes and huge piles, as much as they can, grabbing whatever they can, and then have the audacity to sit in the middle of these big piles and go one by one on their cell phone back to China or wherever they are selling it to and have auctions right there on the floor at the sale!!! This has got to stop, seriously, it turns people off from wanting to even go to sample sales because what’s the point if everything is going to be hoarded up. That’s also why the lines are so bad because resellers come and stay all day until, they have made their sales via cell phone auction so they are taking up time, space, and merchandise from people who, legit want to buy for themselves. I know 260LA and Chicmi are trying to stop this, but they need to put more muscle in their reinforcement because these sales already grueling as it is, and they are alienating real customers by allowing these resellers to get away with this type of horrendous behavior.

All in all, would I go again, yes. Am I happy with my purchases, yes. Did I spend over my limit,yes!!!
