When we stopped by the Jill Roberts and Seaton Blowout sale at 920 Montana in Santa Monica, we weren't surprised to find bins of $10 Seaton tees, $30 Seaton sundresses, $20 to $25 Seaton pants, $45 Seaton hoodies and $194 Seaton sweaters.
We were, however, pleasantly surprised to find two racks stuffed with jeans from J Brand for $84 to $94, Current Elliott for $119 to $127, Goldsign for $60 and 18th Amendment for $75. Mixed in with the Seaton stuff we also saw a one-shoulder coral-colored Tibi dress for $118, Calypso dresses for $25, Saint Grace dresses for $46, Antik Batik maxi dresses for $80 to $98, Phillip Lim dresses and blazers for $298 to $338, Valentino Red dresses for $175, Alexander Wang blazers $415 and a Gryphon cropped leather jacket for $368. Under the register was a shelf of Antik Batik sandals for $47, next to a wall of mixed-color leather sandals ranging from $50 to $124. In the front window were pairs of Hunter boots for $29 to $35. Sizes are spotty, but if you're in the area it's worth dropping by to see what you can find.
