i have this totally irrational fear every time I go to NYC in the winter that I don’t remember how cold it is and I don’t remember how to stay warm (and that none of my LA-perfect shoes are waterproof: but this is actually true). To combat these fears I bought a Patagonia down sweater in black (so it’s fancy). The Kids sizes actually even fit Isaac (XXL) and the Boys Large is perfect for me so they are almost ridiculously affordable…and currently on sale now.
LA-ladies: at the absolutely awesome St Vinnies thrift storeoff San Fernando: someone dropped off a sample-sales worth of brand new J Brand jeans.
The ladies jeans are all size 25: but remember, they are samples so some magically are bigger by mistake (see the ones i scored above–and hint: read the card with comments to know whats wrong or right with the jeans-like if they say too big: grab them), and the mens are in sizes 32 and 34.
um. they are 5.00-6.99. There’s a table in the linens room and a bunch on the racks in the middle clothing room.
go get em if you want em.
I’m super excited!
There will be over 25 local, awesome designers and booths at the sale: we’ve got:
men’s clothing and shoes, including generic man, acid haus, rojas
baby clothing and puppy goodies, including from all mighty
home and paper goods, from soolip, green with glamour and poketo
fancy gifts for the toilette and boudoir, from Hush beauty
zines and records, from LA record
and tons of awesome gift ideas from many more vendors.
Everyone will be selling at big discounts from their usual retail price. There will be a DJ and an open bar, and the Green Truck will come to sell food if shoppers get hungry.

I went to the Planet Blue 75% off “VIP” sample sale last Friday night on Montana Ave in Brentwood. And it was complete chaos. There was way too much of last year’s reject clothes plus super long lines to get in and buy. I think I waited in line for an hour and a half.
So I quit “real world” sample sales. And if you feel the same way, don’t worry, there’s another way to save. Try out these sites to get notified on sales, samples, etc so you can avoid the in-person crowd, chaos, the risk of getting absolutely nothing, and thus wasting a ton of your valuable time.
choose your favorite brands and get emailed when items go on sale at shopbop, bloomingdales, yoox, free people, saks, etc.
everyday a couple sample sale items go on sale at a particular time. you get an email alert and if you’re interested you buy it.
they host sample sales for brands. like ideeli, the sales happens at a certain time slot and you get an email alert.
Rachel sent out an email (see below) today. I have been to her sample sales, and if you are fan of her clothes, I DEF recommend attending. DEEP DISCOUNTS. Watch this and then read her note….
If you missed our last RACHEL PALLY Warehouse Sale…or wanted to get more great clothes at terrific prices…I am now set up for personal appointments at my Van Nuys home/outlet.
I will be open for appointments from October 3 – October 23.
After that date, I will be closed for personal appointments until the end of the year. Our next downtown WAREHOUSE SALE will be December 7-9.
Please email your preferred times and dates to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll try to work it out for your first choice.
