Hello LA, and welcome to LA's last Friday sample sales week, when all of Los Angeles' sample sales happen all at once!
This week is really all about three events, and we'll start of with the one that has already begun - the BCBG Warehouse Sale. We had some difficulty with this one because reports had been coming in for weeks, but we could not get any official response from the brand themselves, which would normally make it a big NO for us to list. But the evidence for the LA sample sale became so overwhelming that we couldn't resist putting it in the diary, and we've already had some great feedback from people who have been - so it's on, it's real and it's good! It's got BCBG and Herve Leger products at a discount. Make sure you get there before it ends on Saturday.
The next big event is on Wednesday, with the launch of the Los Angeles sample sale from The Kooples. This one is by the same people who brought you the Rent The Runway sample sale lately, and before that the La Perla sample sale - all of which have been great - so expect nothing less here, with a well organised and well structured sale filled with great discounts from this snazzy French fashion house.
And then it's Friday, and our dearest love, the last Friday open markets. We've already got Trina Turk, Halston Heritage, George Loves, Nicole Lee and more in the diary, and lots more will announce throughout the week so watch this space. But just make sure you're in DTLA on Friday and ready to shop, with plenty of cash in hand too because not all of those market vendors accept cash!
Happy shopping, folks!
