We confess, we're not patient people. We were in Costa Mesa yesterday, so we decided to stalk the new Loehmann's. T minus 22 hours until the Grand Opening. It looks like Xanadu inside. Pristine, shining chrome racks, with swoon-inducing signage: the designer clothing labels we spied were Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti, and Chloe. We don't know which event we're anticipating more: the opening of the store itself, or the party on Saturday night featuring the Band from TV. We gave away tickets last week; if you missed out, tix are still available on the Loehmann's website.
