*She Shops* The Line

The Line brands itself as a modern approach to retail. They curate fashion, home and beauty products from established and emerging designers. This week they are hosting their first sample sale where you can get your hands on luxury fashion at up to 75% off!

Once you pass the mandatory coat check, a shelving of home goods and accessories are on your right. There were 4 Proenza Schouler handbags (70% off retail) when I walked in, but only one remaining when I left. There are straw baskets, books, random decor items and Regime des Fleurs  Mirror perfume ($48.75) that was made exclusively for The Line . There are 3 buckets on a table near the dressing room. One has underwear from Base Range (13.50 from $45), the other 2 have scarves.

Apparel is 70% off and racks are in the middle of the space. Denim and Jeans are on the side wall. A black Proenza schouler dress is $387 from $1290. A white wool Soyer dress is $222 from $740 and an Atm pleated blue skirt dress is $103.50 from $345. Other dresses I spotted included designers like Calvin Klein, Lowe, Altuzarra, Brandon Maxwell, and T by Alexander Wang.

Among the tops and sweaters Tenfold tanks are $22.50 from $75, a Proenza Schouler off white blouse with necktie is $237 from $790; a Maison Margiela open knit black sweater is $198 from $660; a Jenni Kayne gingham crew is $163.50 from $545; a red Acne Studio sweater is $165 from $550.   

Footwear is in the back and is the draw of this sale. Like the apparel, all shoes are 70% off. Designers include Manolo Blahnik, Newbark, Pierre Hardy, Tabitha Simmons, Proenza Schouler
Altuzarra, Francesco Russo, Alumnae, Repetto, BIrkenstock, and more. 

There is a small selection of jewelry and nail polish near the register. Jewelry consists of pieces from Min Yu Wang and Charlotte Chesnais. There are 4 colors of Jin Soon nail polish and they are $5 (from $18).

Sale goes through Sunday. I would wait for  additional markdowns later this weekend before heading to this sale.

I liked that this show had live music. DJ Rob Swift and singer Latasha Alcindor brought the house down. So many people were following her with their phones and they weren't paying attention to the models on the runway! I'm also excited to add some burgundy and rust into my f/w wardrobe.
