The Cut recently headed over to Dash—the Kardashians' store that nearly caused a riot when it opened last November—to try and find out why there's still a line outside. Turns out, the people in the line don't even really know why they're there, save comments that "the Kardashians are so inspiring." Most of them were also unaware that the store doesn't sell clothes made by the Kardashians, just clothes they like enough to stock a boutique with and sell to their adoring fans. Except, most of those fans are broke, and walked out empty-handed after telling the rest of the line that a bottle of water inside goes for $10. [The Cut]
