Sample Sale Report: Malia Mills

Went by Malia Mills at lunch yesterday. To note the sale isn't marked when you get off the elevator so swing to the door on your right and make a right turn straight down to the sale area.

The sale in general was hectic as it was a small space with no real changing area leaving woment to fend for themselves wherever floor space allowed. It was hard to snag pics while avoiding changing women!

The sale was mostly swimwear obviously but there was some sportswear for $50 or $100 on one rack by the front. The "Tie Me Up" Dress was $100 vrs $375 retail.
Some printed silk scarves for $25, in pale shades as well as kid's swim suits for $25 per piece.

For shoes they had plenty of black Wrapture Sandals for $50 (retails $225), but only a small amount of navy blue Haviana Sandals, maybe 4 pairs? They were the bargain price of $5.

As for swimwear, the tops come in a wide variety of sizes and from what I saw ranged from a 30 a/b to a 38 c/d.

Something random I saw at this sale were bikini bottoms for $10 featuring "Just Married" in crystals. Perhaps an extra that could be picked up for a bridal shower?

The "steal" of the sale was definitely the Vixen Maillot for $25! This used to sell on Shopbop but it's available here in sand or navy.

At the sale hats were $5 but I only saw one style, a khaki bucket hat. Belts were also $5 but looked uninteresting.

There was some unexpected Inhabit Merch at the sale but a much better selection and similar prices on Gilt Groupe today. What I saw there was a thin tee for $85, Cashmere Sweaters/Cardigans between $125-185.
