Shoes First to Go at the Lovers + Friends (and Friends) Sale in DTLA

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Be prepared to get your hands dirty at Revolve & friends's three-day sample sale, which promises blogger-approved styles from Lovers + Friends, Tularosa, NBD, and Raye. A dozen or so eager shoppers were already queued up when we rolled up shortly before 11am, and it swiftly doubled by the time we left about an hour later.

It's happening on first floor of DTLA's Gerry Building, and security is letting in groups of 5 to 20 people, depending on the flow. Once in, you'll have to check your bag in at the front, so we suggest bringing just your wallet.

Onto the goods: Raye's footwear was the first to go, and the size 37 section was pretty decimated by the time we got in at 11:25am. When we left, there were still options in sizes 36, 38, 39, and 40, like suede lace-up gladiators and calf hair stilettos.

Expect to do some digging for clothing, which doesn't appear to be organized by size or style. In addition to an array of styles from past seasons, we spotted pieces from superstar stylist Monica Rose's collab with L+F and Naven's capsule with NBD.

See more merch and pricing in the gallery above and swing by today until 5pm, tomorrow from 11am to 5pm, and Saturday from 11am to 3pm.
