There's good news and bad news with this week's deal-filled lineup. This Thursday marks the beginning of the end for beloved LA designer Rory Beca, who's throwing one final sample sale before bidding farewell to her label.

Now, onto the good news: on top of stocking up on Beca's colorful silk staples, bargain shoppers will also find markdowns on goods from a handful of local labels, including denim from Citizens of Humanity, shopkeeper-beloved carryalls from Vere Verto, and minimalist footwear from The Palatines, to name a few. In addition, fest-obsessed retailer Planet Blue is unloading inventory at its SaMo boutique for 70% off.

Below, see where else to score Cali basics, avant-garde apparel, and more.
