Fashion blog Sassy Flashy Classy, which we are incapable of saying three times twice, went to the friends and family preview of the Rock & Republic sale currently on in Culver City and came back with a full report. What they learned: Jeans are $80 ($100 if they're embellished; $50 for kids.) Tanks are $10, shirts are $20, sweaters and outerwear are $30, blazers are $75, and the most expensive item they saw was $200. As for shoes, they're $80 unless you're blessed with size 37 feet, in which case you'll be able to find yourself some lovely samples for $40.
Overall, this sounds like a promising afternoon of shopping. Don't forget to bring some sort of handbag alternative, since purses aren't allowed, and if you're not interested in flashing a bunch of strangers, wear leggings—in true sample sale style, the dressing room is communal.
