Boo Hoo Boutique Does Boho Just in Time for Coachella!

Hitting up the dessert this weekend for Coachella Part 1, and still don’t have a thing to wear? Well, Boo Hoo boutique just opened up in Westwood Village and they’ve made it a mission to be your one-stop shop for festivalwear.  Boo Hoo paired up with StyleCon for their launch a couple of weeks ago and we checked out their offerings. The packed shop offers everything from babydoll dresses to crop tops to flower crowns, and it’s all reasonably priced.

Can’t make it to Westwood? No prob! You can shop their goods online too, and right now EVERYTHING is 30% off until tomorrow 9PM (PST) with promo code “ALL30”.

Beyonce’s IVY PARK for TopShop Dropped TODAY!

Beyonce’s IVY PARK for TopShop Dropped TODAY!

We love fitness and we LOVE Beyonce. So shopping Beyonce’s athleisure collection with TopShop was inevitable. We got to The Grove a little after 10AM when it opened this morning and already a few items had completely sold out, (namely the long line mesh tanks and the parka). Not surprising since they had a special VIP shopping event the night before (hey, why weren’t we invited??).

We didn’t walk away empty-handed though, because we were able to grab a few of our first choice items, like the short sleeve mesh jerseys ($58), tanks ($28) and pullover hoodie ($52).  There are still a lot of items left, especially the more expensive pieces like the jackets, pants, and the “reflective” stuff. Also, the friendly staff was continuously re-stocking. They’ve told us that they have “a lot in the back.” However, be forewarned that mediums and larges are pretty much all gone (same for online). Maybe because we spotted quite a few men shopping this collection as well. Right now the majority is all small, x-small and xx-small, but even the smalls were running low by the time we left. Another thing to keep in mind, some things run larger/smaller than others, so it’s best to try it on before buying, regardless of the size tag. Also, strangely, some prices are lower in store than online so be sure to check your receipts and tags to make sure they didn’t overcharge you, like they did to us.

If you want a piece of this action, hit up Topshop or select Nordstrom stores NOW, or shop online where you may be able to score something in your size.  Also, stores may still be re-stocking throughout the weekend, so check back often if you don’t find what you’re after. Good luck!

Stone Cold Fox Moving Sale Was a Total BUST!

Stone Cold Fox Moving Sale Was a Total BUST!

When we heard that Stone Cold Fox was having a HUGE moving sale past Saturday, and everything, including vintage pieces and photo shoot props, would be sold, we could not wait! Moreover, word on the street was that prices would start at just $2! Sadly, we planned poorly for this one. We got to the one-day sale around noon and the line literally wrapped around the corner. It was about a 4-hour wait, and we just did not have the strength or patience to wait this one out. People lined up EARLY. We spoke to a couple of the lucky ones that got in as they were leaving. They got there around 8AM and didn’t get into the sale until about 11AM. There were 3 rooms, filled with “good stuff” and the prevalent price point was $30. Oh well, whatever.

If you were lucky enough to get into the sale, let us know what you got so we can live vicariously through you.

Once you entered the building, it was still a 1-2 hour wait

REVIEW: L’Agence Sample Sale, Everything $10!

REVIEW: L’Agence Sample Sale, Everything $10!

We could not miss L’Agence’s sample sale yesterday. It took place at a different space this time, and EVERYTHING was $10! We also learned that at their samples-only sales (like this one), everything is $10 and there’s no tax. L’Agence also has a productions/ samples sale (where samples and production overruns are sold) and there is tax. Also in the latter, there are obviously more sizes and everything is not picked over or damaged/ unfinished. Also, there was a sale preview on Friday (good to know for next time). However, we stopped by around 10AM (about 2 hours into Saturday’s sale), and there was still a lot left. This was the scene when we got there:

This time around, we entered what looked like to be their headquarters office, which was lined with racks and racks of samples. Some were showroom samples, so they were labeled and in “like new” condition with no flaws. However, most of the items were unlabeled prototypes and many had unfinished hems, safety pins or other damages. There was certainly a lot of dreck to sort through but if you had the time and the patience, you could’ve uncovered some real gems here. We found business/casual tops, skirts, pants, jackets and dresses, evening dresses, coats, knits, and even shoes and boots(!). Dresses (retail up to $600) and eveningwear (retail up to $800) were all just $10!  We found black leather over-the-knee boots and suede half boots, also just $10! Among the myriad of dresses, below are some of the ones we spotted, along with retail pricing to give you an idea of the huge deals to be found. This sale was definitely worth the driveby!
