A closer peek at one of the most popular handbag styles -- a zebra-print chain-strap with studded embellishments. It was smaller in person than it had seemed online.

Embellished dresses and leather pants were the big winners on the clothing side -- leather jackets were selling for $249.

Shoppers carried armloads full of shopping bags out of the party, proving that even the insiders were snapping up numerous pieces from the inexpensive line.

A blue gated blockade separated the shoe section from the rest of the store, which was protected by security guards. (The danger of overcrowding was certainly a real one.)

Inside the gated-off section, shoppers packed in to snap up deals on Jimmy Choo's discounted shoe collection for the big box superstore -- pairs start at under $100.
