Trolling basements, fending off scavengers. Shopping for bargains is spooky business.
For a trick-free treat, pop over to Trunkshow LA, a new modern designer discount boutique in Santa Monica.
Inside the neatly appointed space, a well-edited selection of handpicked labels is always marked down 40-90 percent. Thoughtful color displays and full size runs replace the usual picked-over chaos. The main attraction: current collections of top-secret designer denim. (Trust us, they’re good). Slouchy styles from Kova & T, soft-as-butta American Vintage tees, and LnA leggings complete the casual-chic look.
For your further shopping enjoyment, walls are decked with art from local photographers, art books and magazines await perusal, a projector screen will play fashion shows and art flicks, and a listening booth will be set up for scoping out new tunes. Plus, you never need to R.S.V.P.
All in all, a scary-good experience.
