Kristin and I accidentally found this three-day-old shop called Sample This! in Mockingbird Station last night. It’s a full-time, year-round sample sale. L.A. designers, like Notice and Ogle, send their samples to this mom-and-daughter owned store, and the girls sell it for half the original price. Only sizes 2, 4, and 6 are carried (with the occasional 8). I love that the warehouse-esque store is divided and organized by color. The most expensive piece I found last night was $59. Not bad, right? Merchandise will rotate monthly. Go check it out.
