The TOMS sample sale in Santa Monica kicked off this morning and seems to be carrying on at a steady pace. Most styles are represented, as well as some others that are not available in stores. Per our correspondent: "Most pairs are $20, some are $15. Most people are leaving with like one pair, I left with a few bags. They're a little low on men's size 11." For women, we're told they have styles from Natural Canvas to Gold Glitter. The sale, at 3025 Olympic Blvd, Studio C, goes until 7 pm tonight and resumes Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
