Farewell, Nasty Gal! Nasty Gal Closed Shop Today

Farewell, Nasty Gal! Nasty Gal Closed Shop Today

And another one bites the dust. Nasty Gal, the brand for girl bosses everywhere, is DUNZO! When news broke earlier this month that Nasty Gal was acquired by UK e-tailer, Boohoo, following Nasty Gal’s ongoing bankruptcy, it didn’t take long for the going-out-of-business sales to start. Both storefronts in Santa Monica and West Hollywood shut their doors today, following the weekend’s storewide liquidations. Markdowns reached a whopping additional 70% off today only.

Despite the rain, we visited both shops earlier today. The store on Melrose Ave in West Hollywood still had a ton of merch, including Fenty x Puma by Rihanna sneakerboots (marked to $105 from $350) and pieces from the latest Love, Courtney Courtney Love x Nasty Gal collection. However, the bigger store at Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica was much more picked over, but still had a few gems left, like Quay sunglasses for as low as $3!

Although the stores are now closed, the clearance sale continues online. For how long? We don’t know. Selection is going fast! Farewell, Nasty Gal. It was fun while it lasted.

Kenzo x H&M Lands at Beverly Center Today!

Kenzo x H&M Lands at Beverly Center Today!

Hello, Fashion Fiends! We were kind of on the fence about this collaboration. For sure, we heart Kenzo and everything but do we really need another fast fashion “limited edition” collection? Like, there’s SO many now. So we didn’t camp out or show up at the mall at the break of dawn, but we did stroll into the Beverly Center H&M store about a quarter past 10AM (more than 2 whole hours AFTER H&M opened for the launch), and surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly), we found pretty much everything still available in a plethora of sizes – the womens and mens clothing, bags, accessories, hats, socks, sunglasses, slippers, shoes, and most importantly, the iconic sweatshirts and t-shirts were STILL THERE. This is quite the opposite of what happened in the wee early hours this morning when the H&M website crashed at the start of the launch. There were only about 5 people checking out the collection this morning in the store when we were there. So, in all, it was pretty quiet.

Keep in mind that much of this collection is unisex, and the sizes run about a size smaller. So don’t be surprised if only a few (or none) of the larger sizes are left. And yes the prices are a bit steep for H&M but does that surprise anyone anymore? Hello, the Balmain and Isabel Marant collaborations weren’t bargain basement either! We were impressed by the quality of this collection though, so the high prices may be justified this time. If you haven’t shopped the collection yet and are jones-ing for some pieces, we suggest you go soon for better selection etc.

Sports Authority on Pico Blvd is DUNZO

Sports Authority on Pico Blvd is DUNZO

No doubt there’s been a steady-growing enthusiasm in fitness classes and seemingly endless trends in athleisure. However, it hasn’t stopped Sports Authority, the chain sport and athletics purveyor, from filing for bankruptcy and closing 140 stores, including the Woodland Hills, Mid-City and West LA ones.

We stopped by the store in Mid-City on Pico Blvd on Saturday where its storewide liquidation had already begun some time ago. The entire store, fixtures and all, is marked 30-60% off. All stock is out. All clearance apparel (anything with prices ending in .47 or .97)  is now an additional 40% off, while all regular priced apparel is an additional 30% off. There are only a few brands available, mostly Champion, Under Armour or Bloom, with a few Nike and Adidas items sprinkled throughout.

There weren’t a lot of shoes left when we were there. There were about 4 tables out for men, women and kids, and all marked 30% off. For women’s, there were mostly size 9’s left and a couple of size 8’s. We spotted a single pair of fuschia/blue Asics size 7.5, priced at $99.98, plus 30% off.

We’re told the store will remain open until “some time in June”, but we wouldn’t be surprised if all sold by Memorial Day weekend.

Sports Authority, 4550 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90019. Last day is some day in June.
