Although by now you've likely mapped out your plan of attack for this weekend's many LA sales, we suggest adding one more to your hit list and making it a priority. We can exclusively reveal that our city's coolest retro treasure trove, Shareen Vintage, is having its first sample sale this Saturday, January 24th. Markdowns will range between 50 to 70% and yes, the event will also include the store's legendary three-dollar piles.
Founder Shareen Mitchell tells us that she has never released samples, discontinued styles or line pieces at a sale price," so this is a pretty big deal. "I will be releasing lovely, classical gowns [see two options, above] and cocktail dresses, just in time for all the award shows and parties. There are even some bridal samples!"
Be there and, as always, no boys allowed.
