Recently, I had the opportunity to check out the Shop Excess Baggage showroom, located in a swanky penthouse condo in Studio City. Shop Excess Baggage is an online and offline boutique that caters to high-end brands for up to 75% off the retail price. If you are local and want to get a feel of the brands and try on the clothes, they are open by appointment only for private shopping and for trunk shows. Their trunk shows (or Ex Bag Events) offer guests a unique and intimate experience, with cocktails, hors dâ€™ oeuvres, beauty services, gift bags and more! Whether you’re shopping from the comfort of your home or stopping by the showroom, you’re bound to find something cute for that next event or outing, as they feature over a hundred brands, from BB Dakota, Blank NYC, See Thru Soul, Woodleigh, One Grey Day, For Love and Lemons to LNA Clothing and M2F Denim. Personally, I really enjoyed the rather intimate one-on-one experience with the CEO- Haylee, who walked me through the two rooms of fashion goodness. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to a mall or thrift store, but having someone there to walk you through the brands, help you pick out outfits (while thinking “outside the box”) and not have to deal with the cluttered racks and hoards of people at let’s say- ‘a popular fast fashion brand’, is rather a pleasant experience. If you are local to LA, I’d highly recommend checking out the showroom or get a great group of girls and have a truck show. But, if not, don’t fret! You can still get the same great deals on the Shop Excess Baggage site!
