Folks afraid to leave their house on Friday the 13th now have a viable reason to break their superstitious behavior. Notoriously too-cool-for-school LA label, Rodarte, is set to host a super-secret sample sale in Los Angeles. It's so secret that designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy aren't even releasing the hours or location.
Rodarte exclusively reveals to us that "there will be runway pieces, shoes, accessories, T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies" going for up to 70% off. Although you can assume that prices on RTW pieces will still be pretty steep given their retail value, Opening Ceremony and Target items may be within your budget. Our sister site reveals that over at this year's NY sample sale, there was a ton of under $100 collab stuff.
To get the full sale details, test your luck by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, who will confirm RSVPs at the very last minute. Access isn't guaranteed, so we recommend stalking your inbox daily to avoid possibly missing a golden ticket. Any guesses on where the sale might be? It was located on West Olympic (and cash only, mind you) back in 2009.
