This week's Clothingline sample sale brings us a lot of Milly, Tocca, and Nonoo, with a sprinkling of Free People, Figue, and assorted swimwear and accessories. Here's the bottom line about Free People: if you aren't an extra small, don't bother. The brand's selection of samples was pretty picked over when we stopped by this morning, despite the lack of sizes. Blame it on the cheap prices: We saw a blush romper ($15), a lot of tops ($15), a few sweaters ($20), and some shorts ($15). Vest are $15 and jackets are listed at $30, though we didn't see any on the racks.
There is a section full of Milly apparel with tops, shorts, and skirts for $40; pants for $45; dresses for $65; blazers for $99; and coats for $109. There are plenty of dress styles in a full range of sizes, like a nice white embroidered dress and many prints. We liked a few printed skirts and a pair of neon green shorts ($40) as well. Bins at the back of the room have Milly accessories: Large bags are $85, small and medium bags are $65, and clutches are $45.
Tocca takes up a good section as well, with tops for $40, bottoms (skirts, shorts and pants) for $30, and dresses for $70 each. Most styles are one-offs, so you have to hope it happens to be your size. Figue takes up only a couple of racks, like last time. We liked a white Figue top with gold snake embroidery and a white embroidered top, each of which are $50. Figue shoes are nearby for $30, ranging in size from 5 to 11. Figure sweaters are $109, and long embroidered tunic dresses are $89.
Nonoo takes up most of the front lefthand section on the walls, and contains the most expensive merchandise here. Tops, skirts, and shorts are $75; pants are $80; sweaters are $120; dresses are $125; maxi dresses and blazers are $150; and coats with fur trim are $425. We liked a turquoise Nonoo print top ($75) and skirt ($75), and an ivory sweater for $120.
On a table at the back, there are May Y Sol hats ($20) and clutches ($30). Four bins nearby have La Perla and Aqua Suit swim separates for $30, and a rack next to them have sarongs, tops, bottoms and dresses for $50 apiece. There are also very worn Tocca shoes for $30 on a table, and several bins of Havaianas flip flops for $10 apiece.
