When I stepped inside Marissa Webb's intimate showroom, I was instantly greeted by the brand's extremely friendly staff. The designer herself was also present and her smile & attentiveness to shoppers made this gloomy day bright & cheerful. Unlike any other sample sale I've been to, I was happily astonished to witness Marissa personally taking her time and care to help customers pick and choose pieces which best fit their look. I was completely enamored by her warmth and compassion in giving her professional style suggestions.
Now, let's talk about the merchandise. There were about 8~10 clothing racks that lined the showroom's walls. Each of the racks were comprised of items from Marissa Webb's debut collection. They included Skyler sequin tops, Albertine dresses, Mika lace skirts. Every piece was individually priced but let me give you a rough idea of what I found. Leathers were priced $250 while dresses, skirts, and jackets were marked down to $150. Sweaters, lightweight knits, and jeans were organized on a center table. Jeans were available in various hues like pink, red, green, and white. They were $70 per pair. Sweaters and knit tops were priced lower at between $15 and $35. I also spotted a sample rack which included lace skirts, sequin tops, silk blouses, and flirty frocks. Items placed on the sample rack were all under $100 with a majority priced at $50.
A small selection of shoes was also available at the sale. I spotted Marina sandals in black and white, Alina cut-out booties and ankle straps in red, pink, and black. Prices for footwear ranged from $100 to $150.
Marissa Webb's name might not instantly ring a bell to some but, whether you're a fan of the designer or not, I highly suggest dropping by. If you're lucky enough to catch her in her studio today or this weekend, I guarantee she'll make you feel special. I know I did.
