Black and Pink Peplum Dress

I got this dress the last time I was in Los Angeles at my beloved Saturday morning sample sales in downtown LA. Every Saturday the wholesale part of the fashion district has these amazing sales from about 6am - 10:30am. Usually you need a wholesale license and you have to buy multiple sizes of one style when shopping at these stores but during this time they sale individual pieces of their excess merchandise and you get wholesale sale pricing. Like for example I got this dress for only $7. Over the years these sales had gotten more and more popular and crowded. The last time I went it was not quite the same. There were less merchants out and less people. Apparently the LA Fashion District police have been cracking down on merchants selling without a license and/or on the side walk vs a store, or having some of their merchandise on the side walk to attract customers. They even had like a mini raid while we were down there, it was a really interesting experience. I was told if merchants get caught they get their merchandise confiscated and a huge fine. So consequently there are less merchants out and less people. I just hope they don't stop it all together cause this is truly one of my favorite things to do when I go back to LA to visit. I will check it out next time I go to LA and if people are interested I can even do a full post on it and how you can get the good deals if you visit LA.
