We arrived at 10am, and there were already about 350 women (and a few good-natured dudes) in line at the Monique Lhuillier sample sale. The ladies at the front of the line had been there since 4am. Think about it: it's cold, it's downtown LA, and you're spending the night parked out in front of a building waiting for the opportunity, the possibility, the hope?talk about devotion! Also on site was that rolling diet anathema, the Sweets Truck. Aren't brides-to-be always trying to lose 10 pounds? Maybe that's why there weren't a lot of takers. Though the offerings certainly looked delish. Extreme brownies, anyone?
