We were a little on the shocked side when we arrived at the Decadestwo.1 shoe blowout and learned that no one camped out overnight, such as is usually the case at these things. But about an hour beforehand, throngs of the faithful rolled up and jammed the sidewalk outside of the store.
Obvs., the really killer merchandise had been scooped up earlier in the weekend, but there were still some covetable finds: brand new Stella McCartney black velvet sliver wedges that laced around the ankle, almost new Pucci rainboots?and some lucky shopper snatched up a mint green Marc Jacobs Stam bag from the 40% off table (she ended up paying about $300). Maybe not so affordable was the ultra-rare beaded Prada coat -- one of only ten in the world, anywhere.
If you didn't get your D2.1 fix, they're taking it on the road and gracing the OC with their presence this weekend. It's a unique idea: they will be popping up at AnQi Bistro in South Coast Plaza on Saturday. For your shopping edification, we'll run a preview on Friday.
