Review - Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus

Thursday I had the opportunity to check out the new Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus which is in Rockville, Maryland. Last Call Studio opened on Friday, but they gave local fashion bloggers the opportunity to check out the store a day early. It was so cool to meet so many other fabulous fashionistas in the DC area while learning about Last Call Studio.

Last Call Studio isn’t your typical outlet mall shop full of damaged and last year’s styles. While Last Call Clearance Centers (like the one I have visited at Arundel Mills Mall in Maryland) are stocked with leftover merchandise from the Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus stores, Last Call Studios by Neiman Marcus are located in towns and stocked exclusively with products directly purchased from designers and brands, usually half price. This means they have current styles of brands you love and covet.

Wandering around the store, I saw so many gorgeous clothes and accessories. A whole wall of sunglasses from brands like Gucci and Prada; bags from Marc Jacobs, Salvatore Ferragamo and Michael Kors; shoes from Sam Edelman, L.A.M.B and Tory Burch; dresses from Diane von Furstenberg, Muse, and MICHAEL Michael Kors, a whole section of J Brand and Joe’s Jeans, and much much more. Many items were an additional 30% off their already reduced price.

Unlike big box discount retailers like TJ Maxx, Last Call Studio is designed and merchandised like a higher-end store. The modern fixtures, the orange accent walls, the clean spacious fittings rooms were a welcome change. The staff was there to assist - answer questions, put items on hold, jump on another register when the line got too long.  It was a pleasure shopping at Last Call Studio. 

And shopping I did – I scored a fabulous pair of Miss Sixty leather booties for less than $100, while I see them currently being sold online for $150. Pretty impressive!

Last Call Studio is located in Dallas, Texas and Rockville, Maryland. A third Last Call Studio will be opening in Paramus, New Jersey this coming weekend. Don’t have a Last Call Studio near you? Check out lastcall.com for fabulous designer discount shopping from the comfort of your home!

Note: Last Call Studio provided me with a $100 gift card, however all opinions are my own and not biased by my monetary compensation.
